ATTENTION Parents of Children with Autism, Dyslexia, ADHD or Other Special Educational Needs

This Book Reveals How To Help Your Family Have a Better, Happier Life

...Even if you feel you are fighting your way through far too many of your days right now (whether or not you already know about special needs)


From the desk of Sarah-Jane Critchley.

Tunbridge Wells, Kent. United Kingdom

Dear Friend,


If you want to know how to support your child better so they struggle less, this may be the most important book you'll ever read.

But first, let's be realistic.

Listen. This book is good.


It can definitely help you.


It will help you to be better informed, to know what information you need, where to get it, who to ask and how to be the parent they need you to be.


But it will not stop your child being autistic, dyslexic, having ADHD or any other Special Need or Disability. Neither can it wave a magic wand and turn the world into a place that loves them as much as you do. If that's what your after...then don't get the book. It's not really for people who don't want to respect the unique person they are living with.


So with that understood ... let me jump right in and show you ...

Exactly What You're Getting

This isn't like most books you've read about Autism, Dyslexia, ADHD or Special Needs.


It isn't a dry text book listing all of the medical symptoms of each condition and focusing on all the things your child may not be able to do.


It doesn't assume that your child fits into any single box with any one label on it.  After all, we are more than the labels we wear.


When what you feel is stressed out and anxious at having to deal with a huge pile of stuff you never planned for, it is warm and comforting, stuffed full of the sort of information that professionals in the field have at their fingertips.


It boils down nearly 20 years of lived experience and 10 years as a professional, developing the best information and support for children in schools, working with the very best teachers, researchers and autistic people nationally and internationally in the worlds of Autism and Special Needs, to give you reliable information that has been tried and tested.


At less than 200 pages long, it is packed with practical tips and positive emotional support to help you navigate the difficulties that come with having a child who is different to most. 


It is written so you can dip into the chapter you need, picking up all the key information in just an hour or so.


You already love your child, no-one needs to teach you how to do that! But dealing with education, health and people who don't understand what your family needs, well that's a whole different thing! With this book, you need never feel quite so isolated again.

And It's About MORE Than Just parenting a person with Special Needs (although that is a huge job by itself!)

See, you can use the information in this book to help you to discover more joy, peace and happiness whilst learning how to manage the hard realities of your life better.


For example, I've also used the same information to help my children select  courses that they love, that play to their strengths and steer them towards independent successful lives.


I've used the strategies in it to help find the best way for us to work as a family so that they build the skills they will need for life.


You can use the strategies here to help your children develop the skills, wisdom and perspective that delights me daily in mine which will stand them in great stead for their lives as loving, participating members of society who are loved and valued by those around them.


A parent group were really excited when they got a copy to help the parents they support to navigate the maze of special needs support with grace.


Another parent used the book to help them to identify positive role models for their child who was really struggling with self-esteem issues.


A support service is using the book to help parents of children awaiting diagnosis to come to terms with the issues their children is having.


Another parent used the book to further what they knew about how to support their child and has now gone on to study at Masters Level.


So like I said, there's more to this little book than "just" parenting special needs children. 


Here's a fraction of what you're getting...

  • Find out why parenting a child (or more than one) can have an effect on your mental health and why sane-ish is good enough  (See p5)

  • Why the medical profession is WRONG in the way they describe Autism, ADHD, Dyslexia and other developmental conditions and why it matters to how you see your child (p64)

  • What are Autism and Asperger Syndrome? Why it is called a spectrum and why people with the same diagnosis can be so completely different to each other (p67)

But you know what you'll really love?

You Will Also Learn How to Make Life Better For Your Whole Family...Including You!

Listen. If you are really struggling right now, you're not alone.


I've been there. We all have them, but the bad days are fewer and the good days far more frequent and much more fun!


We don't always get it all right. The good news is, you don't have to be a 'perfect parent'


Perfectionism hurts you and it hurts your children too!


When you read the book and begin to implement some of the ideas in it, two things will happen.


First, you'll be able to deal with the inevitable stresses of your life with more grace, joy and happiness more of the time.


When you are less stressed, you sleep better, gain IQ points, become more resourceful, have better ideas and become able to try new things.


Your family will be less stressed because you feel happier and have more energy to help them.


This is really important to you because it sets you up for a better long-term relationship with them where they're significantly more likely to be able to flourish.


The next thing you'll notice is this:


You'll know what to do to help your family better in the specific phase and challenge that you are facing right now!


And you'll do it whilst honouring the unique, delightful and different strengths that your family has.


That may sound like a fluffy nice-to-have, but it does in fact save lives


Horrific rates of mental illness, PTSD and early death by suicide are sadly often outcomes for people whose needs and innate value is not recognised. I'm not saying this to scare you, but because I have to do everything in my power to convince you that how you meet and talk to your family and those like them in society can save lives. Starting with those you love most.


There's even more to learn, but I don't want this letter to be 100 pages long so...

Oh, and in case you're wondering ...

There Is No Catch!

I realize this is very inexpensive for a book that took over 2 years to write and condenses 20 years of experience you might wonder what the "catch" is.


And I know there are some websites out there that offer you a great deal on something but then they stick you in some program that charges your card every month for some pills or supplements they send you in the mail every month.


This isn't one of them.


There's NO hidden "paid membership program" you have to try or anything even remotely like that.


No-one is going to ring you up at home and disturb you.

My hope is that you'll love it and this will be the start of a great relationship where I can help you and your family for years to come.


But with all that said, there is ONE thing to keep in mind:"

Pretty straightforward.


Anyway - with all of that said, this is a limited offer.

Although it does not shy away from the challenges of raising a child who is different, it is positive, uplifting and reassuring. (And in my experience, it simply works better in building self-esteem and confidence in the whole family.)
