A pediatric neuropsychologist presents strategies to help parents of special-needs children navigate the emotional challenges they face.

As diagnosis rates continue to rise for autism, ADHD, learning disabilities, and other developmental differences, parents face a maze of medical, psychological, and educational choices – and a great deal of emotional stress. With compassion, clarity, and an emphasis on practical solutions, Dr. Rita Eichenstein walks readers through the five stages of acceptance and helps readers understand their own emotional experience, so that they can embrace their child with acceptance, compassion, and joy.
