A Special Education: One Familys Journey Through the Maze of Learning Disabilities by Charlotte Farber, Dana Buchman

Dana Buchman knew almost nothing about learning differences when her oldest daughter, Charlotte, was diagnosed with neurological, spatial, and motor skill disabilities as a toddler. Furthermore, from the Ivy League to the launch of her own fashion label, Buchman had encountered few obstacles that couldnt be overcome through hard work and determination. Unfortunately, Buchmans well-developed ability to fix things would not serve her in her efforts to deal with Charlottes disabilities; she would have to develop a new skill set to be able to see Charlotte as a person with uniqueabilities.A riveting and intensely personal memoir,A Special Educationreveals the long and arduous process of Charlottes development as well as Buchmans own path to self-discovery. Confessing frequent anxiety, guilt, frustration, and anger, Buchman describes the difficult search to find the right school and care for Charlotte and the strain the process put on her marriage and family life. In addition, Buchman tells of her own struggles with excessive drinking and workaholism-and of finally letting go of her drive to be perfect. A moving mother-daughter story,A Special Educationis an inspiring account of one mothers journey to acceptance and understanding as well as a familys triumph over daunting circumstances.
