My friend Cam Tait was kind enough to write an article about me and my It Starts At Home Book.  You can read it here...


It Starts at Home deserves a much wider audience and provides practical advice and information that would benefit professionals such as therapists or doctors working with children. An eloquently-written and precise guidebook that covers incredibly diverse and important subjects, from strategies for dealing with school bullying, transitioning into teens and adulthood, to finding  the right kind of support,  care and activities to help  children with disabilities  and their families reach their fullest potential.

It Starts At Home is a comprehensive guide for parents who have disabled children covering the various milestones throughout the child's life. I have been a professional care giver and disability aide for many years and I found this book to be an insightful and informative walk through. This is a new parent's GO TO Guide and instruction book written from the perspective of someone who has been there done that. There is no better perspective than that of firsthand information and this book is spot on and a must read for parents everywhere. Even if you do not have a child who has a disability I would suggest this as a Must Read because it helps all parents to get on the same page with each other. This book removes any fears, worries or concerns that one might have about raising a child with a disability. Every parent should receive a copy of this book.

It Starts at Home

My hope is that this book will empower you to make the very best out of a situation that may be seen as negative according to societal standards.

"My intention in writing It Starts at Home is to bring you as a parent of a disabled child to a better understanding from the perspective of an adult with a disability. I want you to know that having a child with a disability is not the end of the world, although you may feel that way sometimes. Although I have Spina Bifida this book can apply to children who have a wide range of disabilities. At times it may seem I am referring to one specific parent however that is not my intention as both parents should be involved in the raising of their children."
