Upcoming e-book release!

Posted Friday March 30, 2012 by Melissa

I am so excited about next week’s release of my e-book Calmer: Medical Events with Cognitively Impaired Children. This e-book started out as a response to an e-mail, then became too long for that. Morphed into a blog post, then became too long for that. A lot of research, trial and error with my sweet child, and discussions with therapists, nurses and doctors resulted in this book. I hope that it will be helpful to other families with cognitively impaired children, including our MPS families. I don’t profess to be a psychology or medical expert, but I’m a student of Case, his condition, and his unique needs and I’ve worked quite hard on this for the last year, so I just hope it can help anyone!

Calmer bookYou might recognize sweet Case on the cover. This event might also look familiar to many families as it is during an EKG at a cardiology visit. This is just one type of test that can be incredibly difficult with a special needs child. So many stickers, leaving them on, wires everywhere….

Case is my inspiration in all of this work. If it weren’t for him, I would not have any reason to know any of this information. And other MPS families continue to inspire me day after day.

So when you see that it’s released, I would be blessed if you’d check it out and consider picking up a copy. I hope that these strategies will be as helpful to you as they continue to be for me.

  1. Melissa,
    Congratulation on your book. It is wonderful. I admire your advocacy for Case. I am a friend of your mother and have followed Case through her. I have been touched by your strength and faith. I wish you and your family all the best. I really appreciated your comment that parents of special needs children deserve an academy award. So many times we are the best presenters of happiness even as we endure the heartbreak of seeing our children endure medical events. I truly related to this. Also there is no doubt that the skills learned from parenting the special needs child benefits the typical children in the family as well. So glad that Jane shared the information about your book with me. I imagine that it won’t be your last. Case has so much more to teach us all. Best regards
    Gayle
