    Any chance of getting previews? Reading the table of contents is just not enough!

  2. Totally agree. We'll see what we're allowed to leak. It's really up to the publisher.

    It's been extremely exciting seeing it come together.

    It's a very practical guide for understanding children's learning differences from the perspective of how children (and adults too) are wired differently. It has lots of suggestions for activities and strategies to help kid find their strengths and overcome challenges.

    We'll keep you posted. We only just got it accepted by the publisher, and we're just starting to hear specific information about the release. Apparently there will be an ebook option as well.
