Families of children and youth with autism, ADD/ADHD, behavioral and developmental disorders, or any type of special health needs will find practical strategies in this step-by-step guide designed by parent and Author Wendy Besmann Lowe to help families navigate confusing service systems and work smarter with doctors, schools, agencies and insurers. When a child has serious behavioral health issues, you suddenly have a team of professionals in your life who provide a variety of services and supports. This team could include doctors, therapists, health workers and teachers but remember that the coach of this team is you – the parent. You are the only one who takes care of the whole child. Learn how to identify your child’s strengths and needs, make sense of reports and evaluations, understand your child’s treatment plan, track your child’s progress and translate the Individualized Education Program.
