Something's Not Quite RightAll mothers experience worries and fears about their children, but none can compare with the early days when a mother feels something's not quite right. Anne Ford knows the feeling. She's had it herself, having raised a daughter with severe learning disabilities, and has gone on to share experiences with others during her many years as a volunteer with the National Center for Learning Disabilities.To bring comfort, support, and hard information to mothers—and fathers, too—in the early period surrounding the diagnosis, here is the book that Anne wishes she'd had years ago when she first received the news about her daughter and didn't know where to turn for the practical and emotional help she desperately needed.Filled with essential advice and the voices of other mothers whose children have LD and related disorders such as Asperger's and ADHD, A Special Mother lets parents know they are not alone and that they can help their child to thrive. This invaluable book addresses such matters as:Understanding Learning Disabilities and Related DisordersWhat Should You Do First?Interpreting Evaluation ResultsResolving DisputesSpecial Fathers: They Are Out ThereThe Social Side of LDAdvocacy vs. ObsessionHow Are You Doing?: Taking Care of Yourself
