Reviews

'As an OT with over 20 years experience, I was amazed how much info is packed into this small book. It is so thorough, you would think it was a text book but it is just written concisely and is easy to read. For parents it is a great gift for those with a child just diagnosed with developmental concerns as it explains many terms used in therapy, gives suggestions on everyday activities to IEPS for school aged children. It is a great resource not just for parents but for therapists too, to help explain terms, give home suggestions and treatment planning. Thanks Cara for putting this together.'
- Jeanette Runnings, founder of Yoga Yingo

'This is a great introduction to pediatric occupational therapy and provides wonderful help and support to families of kids with special needs.'
- Lindsey Biel, OTR/L, co-author of Raising a Sensory Smart Child

'Cara continues to offer teachers, parents, and heck -- anybody who cares about ANY child's learning - consistently positive, workable, RELEVANT tips that simply make learning what it should be: WONDERFUL. Her understanding of kids whose gifts and challenges may befuddle others is utterly sincere. Meaning that every chapter is infused with authentic respect, empowering information...and a whole lot of smarts that actually work. Most of all, Cara knows what it is to be brave: to feel afraid and do it anyway. And because of that compassion, BRILLIANT kids the world over will have the chance to amaze the most important people of all: themselves.'
- Jennifer O'Toole, author and founder of Asperkids
