About Raising Kids With Hidden Disabilities: Getting It

When we have children with hidden disabilities, home life can be tough.

Everyone and their dog is likely be giving us parenting advice, usually unsolicited and often useless or harmful.

Most people offering us advice have not ‘walked the walk’ and unless they have parented a child with a hidden disability, they are unlikely to ‘get it’.

Most parenting advice is designed for children without hidden disabilities. This is why it can make things worse, not better.

Naomi Simmons has absolutely walked the walk. She wrote this book to provide hope, support and techniques that really help to parents who are living this challenge.

  • Maybe you are figuring out how to deal with meltdowns and shutdowns?
  • Maybe your child is self harming or obsessing?
  • Or they will not leave their room? Or do schoolwork?

The key to parenting our kids is understanding what is driving their behaviour. We may need to throw out the rule book for our children and find strategies that actually work for them.
