People tend to function from the point of view that there is something wrong with these children because they don't learn the way the rest of us do. The reality is that they pick things up in a totally different manner. We need to step up and find out how they learn, not try to teach them using methods that might have worked for us but definitely don't work for them.
What if they could be seen as who they are, not as who they aren't? What could that change?
Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.
When I read this book, it felt like I was beginning to understand myself for perhaps one of the first times in my life. I am so grateful for this book for many reasons. I have worked with young children my entire adult life and autistic children in particular, have always been drawn to me and I to them.. I also told people close to me that I always felt like they were all telepathic and psychic as well. I would invent telepathic games to play with them and be astounded by all that could be conveyed between us! This book is amazing and the tools within are transforming my life- literally. Thank you, sincerely -with tears of gratitude- THANK YOU for writing this book.
What if your children are perfect--even if they have ADHD, OCD, ADD, autism, or something else going on?
