Overview

Parents of Children with Disabilities: A Survival Guide for Fathers & Mothers is one of Liberty University Press best-selling books. This book from an experienced father and mother who have been there, done that straight shooting, parent-to-parent, and is punctuated with carefully crafted, hard-hitting stories to increase interest. There are over 30 illustrations/cartoons to help the visual learner and to support key points. The length of the book is relatively short so that busy parents (especially fathers) will be more likely to read the book. Each chapter has a specific theme and each chapter ends with three or four, take-a-ways.
Three chapters are actual life stories by families that have learned and grown from the experience of having a child with significant disabilities. The first story is about a family with a daughter who experienced trauma at birth that left her severely impaired; the second story is about a family with an son who has autism; and the third story is about a family whose 14-year old son almost died from a brain aneurism at age 12 and currently is struggling with both physical and learning disabilities.

I thought it was a great resource for any parent, not just for parents who have a child with a disability. You have done so much to help families who are striving to provide the best opportunities for their children. I thought the book was organized in a way that allowed the reader to reflect on important concepts. The art work was very creative. I especially liked the way each chapter had summary points at the end of the chapters. This book reaffirmed the feelings that I have had in recognizing the amazing job that God has done in many families who have loved ones with disabilities. I frequently stand in amazement of the strength I see in many parents. I like how you have always pointed out how the parents are the experts. Throughout the book I found a consistent theme for parents to reach out to God and friends.
