Editorial Reviews

Reader Views - Paige Lovitt
Having a chance to read "Not Just Spirited" opened my eyes to what SPD is all about. The earlier the intervention, the greater the chance will be that the child can lead a more normal life. I truly feel that parents of children with SPD, or really any developmental disability, can learn a lot about self-advocacy from reading "Not Just Spirited" by Chynna T. Laird.
Pfortmiller - Nancy Pfortmiller
I only wish I had this book earlier. Even though my daughter and I live with this every day, I learned a lot from this book, and will return to my family with renewed hope and energy!"
