"Raising a 'differently wired' kid can feel like venturing out in unfamiliar territory without a map or a guide. Deborah Reber is the friend you need to navigate this terrain—not just offering practical tips for parenting kids with autism, ADHD, dyslexia and other conditions, but helping you think about your child's atypical mind in ways that will enable you to help them unlock their unique potential. This is a bracingly honest, beautifully written, and quietly groundbreaking book."
“Differently Wired will help parents of children who think differently to accept their child for who they are and facilitate their successful development.
“Differently Wired offers an insightful, compassionate framework for empowering parents to rethink how they view neurodiverse learners. Building on the premise that we should celebrate our children’s uniqueness instead of apologizing for it, Deborah Reber provides real tools and practical advice for parents to confidently support their child’s journey, not only at school but also at home and in life.”
"Differently Wired is a comprehensive and practical approach to parenting a unique and complex population of children. Twice-exceptional children present parents with a plethora of challenges (and joys) which the author addresses with gusto. There are other titles written on this topic, but this in particular packs significant punch and is a 'must read' for all parents raising children with multiple exceptionalities."
"Deborah Reber approaches the subject of raising a neurodiverse child with the diligence and depth of an investigative reporter and the passion (and compassion) of a parent-advocate, which she definitely is. This book offers parents a treasure trove of practical advice to help them advocate and navigate their personal journeys with their differently wired kids along the often challenging road less traveled.”
—Barry M. Prizant, PhD, CCC-SLP, author of Uniquely Human: A Different Way of Seeing Autism

I had the opportunity to read a preview copy of this amazing work that is a beautiful blend of: real life challenges and victories, empathy and encouragement, awareness and advocacy. Parenting a child who is differently wired, with invisible differences, is extremely challenging at times. It’s often hard to care for yourself, accept what is going on, and live in possibility versus fear. This books recognizes that, validates it, and provides doable steps to guide you. Woohoo!!
I have pre-ordered two copies of this gem. I hope that, as I reread it, I can be more forgiving of myself, dwell in possibility instead of fear, educate and advocate as needed, and ... perhaps the toughest one ... realize that I am enough. I hope to pass along this book and info to those members of my child's TEAM! If any of this hits home, check out the book and Debbie's website/podcasts (TilT Parenting for even more support)! You are not alone!
I encourage all educators and care-givers of differently wired children (and differently wired adults, too) to pick up this book and make your way into this supportive tribe!
Candid and transparent about her own journey with her son, Deborah weaves in interviews with other parents, some of whom have multiple children with distinct types of neurodiversity. The result is a wide swath of experience that includes the challenges of gifted kids and anxious kids along with the more common labels of Autism, ADD/ADHD, etc.
Along with a plethora of invaluable advice and resources, empathy, and support, Differently Wired is a call to action to start a revolution: to shift the paradigm in education, and all of society, to embrace, appreciate, and genuinely value what these children bring that benefit us all.
