It's time to say NO to trying to fit square-peg kids into rounds holes, and YES to raising them from a place of acceptance and joy.

Today millions of kids are stuck in a world that doesn't embrace who they really are. They are the one in five "differently wired" children with ADHD, dyslexia, giftedness, autism, anxiety, or other neurodifferences, and their challenges are many. And for the parents who love them, the challenges are just as numerous, as they struggle to find the right school, the right support, the right path.
But now there's hope. Differently Wired is a revolutionary book--weaving together personal stories and a tool kit of expert advice from author Deborah Reber, it's a how-to, a manifesto, and a reassuring companion for parents who can so often feel that they have no place to turn.

At the heart of Differently Wired are 18 paradigm-shifting ideas--what the author calls "tilts," which include how to accept and lean in to your role as a parent ( #2: Get Out of Isolation and Connect ). Deal with the challenges of parenting a differently wired child ( #5: Parent from a Place of Possibility Instead of Fear ). Support yourself (# 11: Let Go of Your Impossible Expectations for Who You "Should" Be as a Parent ). And seek community ( #18: If It Doesn't Exist, Create It ).

Taken together, it's a lifesaving program to shift our thinking and actions in a way that not only improves the family dynamic, but also allows children to fully realize their best selves.

"In this generous and urgent book, Deborah Reber lets the light in. She helps parents see that they're not alone, and even better, delivers a positive action plan that will change lives."--Seth Godin, author of Linchpin

"Differently Wired will help parents of children who think differently to accept their child for who they are and facilitate their successful development."--Temple Grandin, author of Thinking in Pictures and The Autistic Brain
