What do you do when told your child has a disability?
Or when you notice something isn’t quite right… Disabilities do not discriminate. Anyone’s child can be born with or develop a medical or mental health condition. Anyone’s child can be involved in an accident, resulting in a lifetime of challenges. The color of your skin, level of your education or size of your bank account won’t make a difference.
In The New Normal, psychologist Nancy Musarra shares her challenges and triumphs as the mother of a child with special needs. Having interviewed hundreds of people—from parents to caregivers—who have walked the same path, Dr. Nancy shares their stories and reflections. Collectively, their wisdom forms the foundation of The Seven Things You Need to Know to be prepared for your journey.
