Mrs. Staple-Ebanks does a remarkable job exploring the dimensions of parenting children with special needs from the beginning to the end of her book. Her experiences, insights, and love toward her child offer a universal message for ALL parents and even educators who desire to be advocates, voices, and agents of change for children with diverse abilities and needs. The social, emotional, physical, and cognitive aspects of parenting are alive in this book. Mrs. Staple-Ebanks provides a rare and intimate look at the psychosocial dynamics experienced by families of children with special needs. It is a privilege to hear a father's voice speak to his frustrations and relentless love for his child and to receive the wisdom of siblings through their stories that intricately lace beauty, honesty, humor, and depth.
In addition to the transformative stories, the strength-based strategies introduced throughout the book are real, practical, and plentiful! It is a must-read and should be entered in educational and clinical studies coursework to actively prepare the professional workforce to see and authentically value the voice of families. The book powerfully inspires, informs, and educates. This book is a resource companion to return to over and over again.
