    As both a parent of a child who has learning disabilities, and a therapist in the community, I am so grateful for this book and to Anne Ford for sharing her experiences When raising a child with disabilities there can be incredible highs and fantastic lows Often times the lows are caused by stigma and challenges you did not know even existed I have shared this book, as well as some of Anne Ford s earlier books, to family members who want to try and understand what my family is experiencing and support us better I recommend this book to clients who are struggling and feel alone, that no one understands what they are going through This book as are all of Anne Ford s books is a gift to all the families who are struggling and offers a compass to help navigate what can be a confusing and even disheartening road.

    Of all of Anne Ford s books, this one spoke to my heart the most This was very painful to read, and I literally felt flayed open It didn t sugar coat the reality of having a child with a severe learning disability, but it completely validated my experience thus far It didn t offer a bright and rosie future either This was read as part of a parent support book club at my daughter s school.
