Of Different Minds by Maren Angelotti

More than one in four children with learning disabilities drop out of school, and only about one in eight attend four-year-college within two years of leaving high school (National Center for Learning Disabilities). Maren Angelotti, founder of Of Different Minds, Inc., an organization that works with children with learning differences, has overcome her own challenge with dyslexia, and is raising four children, three with learning-differences.

In the Of Different Minds Tapstack, Angelotti shares some of her extensive knowledge and first-hand experience to help put parents on the road to understanding their learning-different children. With a mother’s heart and a master’s in Teaching for the Multisensory Child, Angelotti clearly explains the complexities of learning differences. Along the way, Angelotti clears up common misconceptions of learning differences, encouraging readers to see the child through the eyes of something greater: the eyes of God. Angelotti offers parents the opportunity to see the difficulties as opportunities, bringing the challenges into perspective, revealing poignant insight rooted in Scripture.

Maren Angelotti has a B.A. in Sociology and Theology from Loyola Marymount University and a M.A.T. (Masters of Arts in Teaching) for the Learning-Different student from Dallas Baptist University. Angelotti has her own practice in Dallas, working with children and adults with learning differences. She has four children, three of which have learning differences. They are currently completing their college careers and are looking forward to bright futures.

Good sharing of author's experience.

:
Author shares know-how of having an autistic child.

How to choose school, doctors, are all discussed and I feel are the strongest part of the book.

Author relables autistic to "learning differences", but addresses it in exactly the same way. She does not treat it as indeed a difference, but as a problem. Instead of word substitution showing high aims and discussing some issues that go along with "normal" would be my suggestion to her.

I feel this presentation can be useful for people interested in autism b/c of authors experiences. 4 stars.

I'm sorry, but...

:
With a career that places me in constant closeness with many children diagnosed with ADD, Autism, Asperger syndrome PDD-NOS, etc and their parents I can say that the book offended me in several ways.

The author implies that the parents are self-centered and quick to ignore their children.

More than once I read the phrases, "It's not about you", and "Get over yourself". Does she KNOW these parents? She knows how SHE handled this situation, but this doesn't in any way give her insight in all other families handling this experience.

Many families actually accept and embrace the child's differences even before the diagnosis. There isn't always a mourning for a child, there isn't always a mental breakdown trying to deal with this, and I really don't know anyone with this problem (and there are many in my career) who ignored their children for their own desires and wants. Sure, they may want to abandon ship ("I just want to get away!" is a common statement), but their children ARE first, or they wouldn't be there and spending so much money addressing their needs.

The author generalizes and stereotypes learning challenged children and their parents. On page 19, she assured the parents, "God chose you to parent this child and for the most part, you're doing fine" How does she know this?
When speaking of the children's future, she basically promised the children would turn out fine. She assured the reader by saying, "I should no. I have four children..." (spelling is not my error, by the way; it's in the book). Her children's outcome defines every child's future? Really? How does that work?

Just because she had specific problems with her children, it's not inevitable that all families, processes, outcomes of all children would be the same.

If she wasn't generalizing, she was being too specific, as on the first page, when she listed one symptom as tugging at tags on clothing. This should have been listed as an example and not a symptom. If he DOES pull at tags, he most likely performs other behaviors such as (but not necessarily specifically being) separating peas so they can't touch the corn, and begging for another crayon that doesn't have torn paper. Not all kids have these experiences, and many have none. If they have OCD tendencies, it may not INCLUDE tag-tugging OR any I mentioned.

If I was reading this book as an avenue to help me in handling the experience, I would have deleted the book immediately, never to turn back.

There should be more information and less judging. Some of these people may already feel guilty. They don't need false accusations thrown in their face, as well.
