This book has so much to offer....Introduction It's like a miracle to me that my son has finally completed writing his one year journey of China. It's hard to believe that a boy who brought home report cards since elementary school containing teachers comments such as;"a bright boy, but..."disorganized," "does not work up to his potential," "is using reading to escape," "has little motivation to be part of the class," "does not follow instruction," "can not stay on task," has now finished this big project of writing a book......... "Hidden disability" is a killer that produces a huge amount of misunderstanding for sufferers and contributes to their frustration, depression, even self-destruction. In my son's case, we used to think he had no motivation or was looking to escape, while he felt overwhelmed with information and would retreat due to his slower informational processing compared to the neural typical person. We thought he was just simply "lazy" or to attached to the internet and other distractions with a lack of self control when he did not hand in homework, while, in reality he had difficulty to extend his short attention span. We thought he did not pay any effort or even try when he could not learn how to tie his shoe laces or how to sweep up a room, while actually he was struggling with weak motor skills and poor body coordination. We thought he lying when he denied things when the truth was starring him in his face, such as denying not brushing his teeth when we could see his tooth brush was bone dry. We thought he was so rude when he showed some awkward speech or other socially unacceptable behavior, while he had no way to understand a neural typical person's standard and lack of the social skills to start, carry, and end a conversation. Worst of all, we thought he is such a disrespecting rebelling teenager when he mumbled or gave a "don't know" to any questions he was asked, while he is actually lacking the abilities in comprehension and verbal expression.
