From Our Community
“This is the most put-together and thorough, easy to understand explanation I have seen so far. This will be so valuable especially to parents hearing some of these words for the first time when pertaining to their child.”
“Thank you for this. I wish we had read something like this 23 months ago. We found much of what we needed along the way, but it requires lots of internet sleuthing. This is balanced and clear but not varnished. A good resource.”
