UPDATE May 2021: It Takes a Village is no longer available on Amazon and is currently being revised and and will be released soon via AAPC Publishing. While waiting, check out all the great books (most about Autism Spectrum Disorder) on AAPC Publishing’s website! I have removed the downloadable challenge link as that content will be included in the newly released book.

Raising a child with a developmental disability, such as Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) or Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), is often overwhelming for parents and caregivers. They need all the help they can get. I know I am one of them.

I am the mother of four children. My youngest has ADHD and Autism Spectrum Disorder. I know firsthand how isolating parenting a child with special needs can be. It was at one of my lowest points as a mother of a special needs child when I realized that I, my son, and my entire family, desperately needed a support system. So I got to work and made it happen.

You cannot be effective in this unique parenting role without a team of people around you who are as passionate about your child’s success as you are.

Amy Nielsen, It Takes a Village

In my book, I identify 7 important areas that should be included in your support system and offers strategies to strengthen each. My approach will help you build the support system you so desperately need (or strengthen the one you already have) in this special parenting journey.
