Start your journey today by picking up one of these life changing reads
There is a tremendous amount of information out there, and for a special needs parent, this can be incredibly overwhelming. When my journey with my special needs daughter first began, I was blessed to have a dedicated aunt who sent me new books to read every month that she felt might help. Here are a few of these books and more to get you started on your path.
