"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

Throughout, the plea is to "Meet me where I'm at." If the child runs away, can't sit still, doesn't seem attentive, or has trouble understanding, Best and Johnson offer some explanations and solutions. Even better, they leave space for your child to fill in his or her own needs. For example:
What works best for me is _________!
To learn best, sometimes I need to _________.
To quiet myself down, I _________.
In fact, these fill-in-the-blank sections have the greatest potential to make this book useful for each child or family. Some of Best's descriptions may fit your child's behaviors exactly. But every child is so different that you will want to add plenty of your own content. The best use for Meet Me Where I'm At is probably as a model. Use it as a template for writing your own personalized book, with pictures of your child, descriptions of his or her behavior and needs, and input from the child. This is what my wife has done, and all of my daughter's caregivers and teachers have been delighted to know exactly how to meet her where she's at.
Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for the complimentary electronic review copy!
This book will help the child better understand & advocate for him or her self, and to be better understood by parents, teachers, and others in the child's world.
