Review by: Robert Naseef, psychologist, author of Special Children, Challenged Parents, and parent of an adult child with autism
"Dr. Pellegrino's book transcends labels with great clarity and guidance for parents. Like having your own developmental pediatrician patiently on call for your questions and concerns."
Review by: Gail Ensher, Syracuse University
"Offers a host of helpful guidelines of when to be concerned as a parent, suggestions for next steps in getting help, and recommendations for appropriate professionals who can be of assistance."
Review by: Judy Swett, Early Childhood Coordinator, Parent Information and Resource Project, PACER Center
"This book really is a common-sense approach to helping parents understand their child's developmental delay or disability, and it affirms the parent's role as the expert on their child. The use of stories as teaching examples and eliminating or explaining jargon makes it very family friendly. I wish this book had been available when I first became concerned about my daughter's development. This is a must-read for any family experiencing concerns about their child and wondering how to take those next steps."

"Reading this book will be like sitting in a coffee shop and picking the brain of an expert on childhood disabilities. [Parents'] concerns about their developing child are expertly and humanely answered by Dr. Pellegrino in a way that is succinct and immensely helpful. A terrific resource for worried families!"
Review by: Susan Moreno, President, OASIS@MAAP, MAAP Services for Autism and Asperger Syndrome
"Dr. Pellegrino has truly hit a home run with this book! It is easy to use, easy to understand, and written in a refreshingly new and easy-to-use format. It is essential reading for all parents raising young children—disability or not!"
