April J. Lisbon Ed.D.
In her role as a school psychologist, the author has helped many families and educational stakeholders over the years better understand the relationship between a student’s disability and its implication(s) in the classroom, at home, as well as within their local community. However, it was not until the author became the parent of two children with disabilities that she finally understood the raw emotions and concerns faced by many families of children with special needs.
This book is designed to encourage mothers of children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and other special needs to never give up hope and faith as they continue to endure the life-changing experiences associated with raising a child with special needs. Whether it be through difficulties experienced at school or home, there are always lessons to be learned within every situation.
"This was a great book and I enjoyed reading it. It was dry engaging and easy to read.
A great insight into the life and role of a working mom."
