    Positively Atypical: How Your Well-Being Affects Your Special Needs Child-And What You Can Do About It, by licensed psychologist, Dr. Rita Eichenstein, Ph.D., opens the discussion about not only caring for the “special needs” child, but also caring for the parents and extended family. It is easy to focus on the needs of the child, and often forget the huge emotional impact on the parents. Guilt, blame, shame and frustration are just some of the adjectives that describe the difficulty of families with children, diagnosed with ADD, ADHD and Autism Spectrum Disorder. Dr.Rita has the approach and techniques to answer all of your questions.
