Not What I Expected : Help and Hope for Parents of Atypical Children

Author(s): Rita Eichenstein, PhD


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. Many books address children's learning or behaviour problems and advise parents what they can do to help, but until Not What I Expected, there were no books that explain what the parents are going through. This book helps parents embrace their child with acceptance, compassion and joy.
