“DEAR LOVED ONES" 
AN HONEST GUIDE TO HELPING THE SPECIAL NEEDS FAMILY YOU LOVE

   

Mothers raising children with invisible special needs are hanging on by the tiniest thread.

We NEED the support of our extended family and friends to get through our days filled with violent tantrums, challenging behaviors, and constant battles. The good news is our loved ones desperately want to help us. The bad news is often their “help” comes off as insensitive or judgmental, making matters worse, not better.

     Julie Falcone is a mother in the trenches, raising four children diagnosed with autism, ADHD, anxiety, sensory processing disorder, depression, and oppositional defiant disorder, who gives a brutally honest, behind the scenes look at what raising children with invisible special needs looks like on a daily basis, and offers grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, neighbors and friends no-nonsense advice on exactly what to say and do in specific situations that occur often with the special needs families they love.
