"A bracingly honest, beautifully written, and quietly groundbreaking book."
--Steve Silberman, author of NeuroTribes
Now in paperback, the revolutionary book of practical advice and inspiration for parenting one of the millions of kids with neurodifferences. Written by Deborah Reber, a bestselling author and mother in the midst of an eye-opening journey with her twice exceptional son, Differently Wired is a how-to, a manifesto, a book of wise advice, and the best kind of been-there, done-that companion.
This is the book that says No to trying to fit square-peg kids into round holes, No to educational and social systems that don't respect your child, No to repeating the same patterns that keep parents stuck. And the book that gives parents all the tools they need to change those Nos into a Yes. Its 18 paradigm-shifting ideas--what the author calls "tilts"-- will change everything, including how to Get Out of Isolation and Connect, how to Parent from a Place of Possibility Instead of Fear, and how to Help Your Kids Embrace Self-Discovery, and how to Show Up and Live in the Present. And through these alternative ways of being, discover how to stay open, pay attention, and become the exceptional parent to your exceptional child.
