What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"Diane Drake Burns has captured and communicated the heart of a mother struggling to understand her precious child who is ‘different’. As an educator for over 33 years, I have counseled parents who are going through this very painful journey to find out why their child is not ‘normal’. Through humor, warmth, authenticity and clear definitions, Diane gently guides parents through the maze of misunderstandings of what ADD, ADHD, autism and Asperger's really are. As she speaks to the very heart of a parent, she provides insight, wisdom and hope. I heartily recommend this book for any parent who is searching for answers and truth.”
