Many children are labelled ‘different’ – by doctors, psychologists, educators, or even peers- and as parents, this label can limit our hopes and expectations for them. Although the challenges that come with these labels are very real, and can be daunting, all of our children can be raised to be strong, capable, curious humans.
This book brings together the 12 habits you need to set your child up for success regardless of diagnosis. Chapters range from defining what ‘capable’ means for your child and setting expectations for how others treat your child, to challenging your child in safe ways, and helping your child build a narrative of strength. With true stories that bring each habit to life, the neuroscience underpinning each habit, activities that encourage reflection and practical application, this is a game-changing guide to understanding, supporting and celebrating your extraordinary child.


This is not just a to-do list or collection of theories, but rather an invitation for parental transformation. Resonates compassionately, insightfully and empoweringly.
Dr. Gwennyth Palafox, clinical psychologist.
This book will help parents see their child's abilities instead of dwelling on their disability. I love the emphasis on what the child can do.
Temple Grandin, author of Thinking in Pictures and Visual Thinking
This book is transformational! Being a parent is the hardest job in the world and raising a child with a disability is even harder. This book helped me look at my child through a lens of possibilities versus the limitations that society has placed. I feel empowered and encouraged to create the path that is best suited for what my child needs.
Tiffany Feingold, Co-Founder and Director of Opportunities at Guiding Bright Minds
A well-researched and empowering reminder that 'difference' does not mean 'deficit,' and that our beliefs and actions shape our children's realities-this book provides a carefully designed formula that every parent can benefit from!
Olivia Lindstrom, co-founder of Delight Station
Dr. Winking's stories are so important for educators to read and to share with parents and families. The 12 habits that she defines will contribute so much to our school communities as we work together to support all students reaching their full potential. Don't miss this book!
Rosanne Fulton, PhD, Director of the Center for Urban Education at the University of North Colorado
