As an OT with over 20 years experience, I was amazed how much info is packed into this small book. It is so thorough, you would think it was a text book but it is just written concisely and is easy to read. For parents it is a great gift for those with a child just diagnosed with developmental concerns as it explains many terms used in therapy, gives suggestions on everyday activities to IEPS for school aged children. It is a great resource not just for parents but for therapists too, to help explain terms, give home suggestions and treatment planning. Thanks Cara for putting this together.

Cara continues to offer teachers, parents, and heck -- anybody who cares about ANY child's learning - consistently positive, workable, RELEVANT tips that simply make learning what it should be: WONDERFUL. Her understanding of kids whose gifts and challenges may befuddle others is utterly sincere. Meaning that every chapter is infused with authentic respect, empowering information...and a whole lot of smarts that actually work. Most of all, Cara knows what it is to be brave: to feel afraid and do it anyway. And because of that compassion, BRILLIANT kids the world over will have the chance to amaze the most important people of all: themselves.
