Finding Einstein: My I.E.P. Journey by Lia Martin is a touching memoir of her son’s educational path. This honest and informative read is a must read for every parent and educator. Martin exposes the hurdles that many parents experience with a unique child. The many challenges did not stop her from finding the best fit for her son. Every brain is wired differently and every child must experience success in school and in life. The resources provided are most informative as well. The author’s powerful message is not complicated—do not give up.
I had the opportunity to read this wonderful resource tool written by Lia Martin. Since completing a Master's with a specialization in Educational Psychology, I look for tools that might be handy to have in my future work. I was pleasantly surprised with the amount of work, love, and information compiled into one easy-to-read book. Lia has done not only her homework but some of ours as well. Having a child that needs additional help or accommodations in school is not an easy thing to bear; however, armed with this book, getting through an IEP meeting and advocating for your child can be a little less terrifying.
