No. 8951


Creating an Independent Future for Your Adult Child with Learning Disabilities and ADHD - A Family Guide
by Anne Ford with John-Richard Thompson

In 2003 Anne Ford (great-granddaughter of Henry Ford) published Laughing Allegra, about the struggles of raising her learning disabled daughter, and received a flood of letters from parents of children with LD, ADD, and ADHD, many expressing concerns about what to do as their children age.

On Their Own is an invaluable road map to ease these parents' fears and answer their questions, especially the one that haunts them daily: Will or can their child be on their own, and how? In a candid, sympathetic style, alced with real-life stories, the book covers such topics as:

  • Social skills and dating
  • Staying healthy
  • Sibling Relationships
  • Interaction with employers and co-workers
  • Job hunting
  • Finding the right college or trade school
  • Estate planning

    Also included are a comprehensive resource guide and exclusive interviews with prominent professionals who have surmounted their learning disabilities: CEOs Sir Richard Branson, John Chambers, David Neeleman, and Charles Schwab, and former governor Gaston Caperton. (301 pp.)
