What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

“Beautiful book! What a wonderful resource for parents—warmly, clearly, and powerfully stated. You are presenting a very comprehensive list of key issues parents face. For that alone, your book will be useful!”
Kate Scorgie, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Graduate Education, Azusa Pacific University, San Diego, California


“In my years of searching for information to prepare me for raising a child with a disability, I found little or no resources available. Most of what I did find was for professionals and not parent friendly. Nick Martin’s book is an enlightening view of the true impact of having a child with a disability and how to deal with it. I needed that book!”
BeLinda Henson, Coordinator, Parent Resource Center, Franklin County Public Schools, Frankfort, Kentucky
