Not What I Expected: Now #1 on Amazon for Disability Parenting!

Not What I Expected: Hope and Help for Parents of Atypical Children hit the bookstores this week. If you haven’t already ordered your  copy on Amazon,, or, this is the month to attend one of my book signing events in Los Angeles or grab a copy at your local bookstore.
Last month, I shared the starred review that Not What I Expected received from Publishers WeeklyBooklist has since described Not What I Expected as “empowering” and noted that “Parents of children with medical problems and learning disorders will find comfort in the wise words of psychologist Eichenstein.”
Since March, I have been a guest on multiple radio shows across the country.  Here is my interview with Bettina Bush, host of Working Motherradio – the topic, “Caring for Your Atypical Child.” Bettina and I had a wonderful, in-depth conversation about the emotional challenges that come with parenting an atypical child. I invite you to have a listen.
