When it comes to parenting a child with a hidden disability, everyone seems to have an opinion. Here, Naomi Simmons writes from experience, offering new solutions for when conventional parenting strategies just don't work. Whether it be high functioning autism, ADHD, OCD, a mood or anxiety disorder with or without a diagnosis, if you have a child with any hidden disability, this is the book for you. Naomi Simmons is a parent of children with a range of hidden disabilities. She provides candid guidance on how best to support children in this situation - dealing with meltdowns, school avoidance, self-harm, anxiety and depression - and shares the experiences of others who really do 'get it'. Addressing common concerns and hurdles, this book helps you respond to your child's needs and challenges while developing their unique strengths and talents.
