Reviews - What do customers think about Empowering Your Child Who Has Special Needs?
Special needs educator Jan 17, 2007
I appreciated the well researched and thought out ideas presented in this book as well as all the personal stories and experiences that reinforced the concepts. As an educator in an early childhood, special needs program, I see great value in following the advice given by Debbie in raising a special needs child to be as independent and capable as possible in handling his/her own life. The author is positive and encouraging while giving strategies to empower parents, as well as children, to meet the, sometimes, difficult days with which they are faced. I was very happy to find this book and Debbie helped me adjust my thoughts as I looked at children with special needs from a different perspective than before. I highly recommend reading Empowering Your Child.
