Parents of children with learning differences such as ADD/ADHD and Dyslexia have a unique and exciting road ahead of them. This phenomenon may have been perceived as a burden when their child was first diagnosed with these learning differences, but know that God does not make mistakes. Therefore, parents must refocus their personal expectations of what their child should be and find out where God is guiding this child. It is time to become Gods helper in raising His child. In Of Different Minds, readers will learn why their child is wired a little differently and how to cope with and educate this incredible person. The book also addresses parental denial and the mystery and fear surrounding ADD/ADHD, Dyslexia and related disorders; the toll on marriage; how to parent these children; the future of the family and the future for these children.
