Using a proactive and positive approach, the author combines her personal and professional experiences to present a blueprint that parents of children with behavioral, attention, developmental, and learning needs can follow to help their child reach his or her potential. Because these children do not follow a typical developmental plan, it is unrealistic to expect them to grow to become the best that they can be without careful attention to their unique needs and gifts. Using strategic planning methodology, Anne Addison introduces the Life Map, which draws upon the child s strengths while minimizing challenges. The exercises throughout the book encourage readers to examine their parenting style and their role in their child s life.
“Life Mapping is a process used to realize a person's fullest potential by drawing on his strengths and interests and working on his challenges.”
