Suspect there's something 'different' about your child? This book will help you navigate those early stages of your child's life when a diagnosis is nowhere in sight. Not knowing how to help your child can leave you totally frustrated, or frightened into inaction by a vision of what may lie ahead. Written by a mother who understands (At first, she tried with all her might to avoid her son's diagnosis!), this book humorously and gently prods parents into action, beginning with the chapters 'Was That the Exit to Normal?' and 'Rules of the Road', and then getting to the nitty gritty in 'Labels - You Gotta Love 'Em' and 'To School or Not to School'.

Review quote

"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."
