Many children are labelled 'different' - by doctors, psychologists, educators, or even peers- and as parents, this label can limit our hopes and expectations for them. Although the challenges that come with these labels are very real, and can be daunting, all of our children can be raised to be strong, capable, curious humans.
This book brings together the 12 habits you need to set your child up for success regardless of diagnosis. Chapters range from defining what 'capable' means for your child and setting expectations for how others treat your child, to challenging your child in safe ways, and helping your child build a narrative of strength. With true stories that bring each habit to life, the neuroscience underpinning each habit, activities that encourage reflection and practical application, this is a game-changing guide to understanding, supporting and celebrating your extraordinary child.
