Description: Breakthrough Parenting for Children with Special Needs challenges families and professionals to help children with special needs to reach their full potential by using a proven motivational, how-to approach. This groundbreaking and inspiring book provides detailed information on how to let go of the “perfect-baby” dream, face and resolve grief, avoid the no-false-hope syndrome, access early intervention services, and avoid the use of limiting and outdated labels. (soft cover, 288 pages)

Jackie's Review: Judy's book is simply awe inspiring. Her strength and dedication shine through the pages of Breakthrough Parenting like a beacon in a storm.  Any parent - of any child - can learn from the no-nonsense advice from a mom who has spent her life caring for and sharing with those who have disabilities.  The unique blend of stories about her son, Eric, along with stories gleaned from others, in combination with many useful tips and resources, makes this book a heart-warming must have for any parent, grandparent, teacher or friend.  Professionals who work with children may also benefit from reading Judy's words.
