Editorial Reviews


"This book is a "must have" handbook for all parents of children with disabilities and special needs. The book will give parents the much-needed assurance that they are not alone in their journey and inspire them to go forward.I would like to congratulate the author, Christine Staple Ebanks for creating such a beautiful guidebook for parents of individuals with special needs. Her lucid writing style, which comes from her heart and first-hand experiences, make the book an easy and interesting read." - Dr. Anjali Joshi, Occupational Therapist - Faculty Lead, PlayPal India

"In a time of uncertainty, this book offers a refreshing outlook on what it means to be responsible for children with special needs or disabilities within our "village community."  Written from an emic, or insider perspective, the book is a powerful narrative account of the lived experiences of a Jamaican mother's journey raising a child with special needs. Parents/caretakers, educators, and social service professionals as well as anyone supporting children with special needs will find this book both incredibly inspirational and informative due to its unique blend of storytelling, useful resources and tools, and research." -Dr. Amy Gooden, Lesley University College of Liberal Arts & Sciences

"Christine Staple-Ebanks' How to Cope: Parenting a Child with Special Needs is a rich cache of inspiration, encouragement, and information to equip every parent of a child with special needs with the right attitude, perspective , and knowledge required to accept, embrace, and cope." -Dr. Ganesh Shetty, MBBS,DM(Psych), MPH,FCYP (UWI), FCAP (Ca),Child, Adolescent & Adult Psychiatrist (Jamaica) --This text refers to the paperback edition.

From the Back Cover

If you are a parent relative or other caregiver with the responsibility of the care of a child with a disability or special needs, you are not alone! There is a world-wide "village Community" to inform, guide, inspire and encourage you on your journey. 
This book brings it all together for you. The Author's, as well as others', "lived experience" of being the parent of a child with a disability or special need, bolstered by a rich cache of research, professional expertise, useful tools, and other powerful resources. Altogether, you will be enabled to accept and embrace the "gift" that is your child, focus on your child's ability and not his/her disability, and in the process assert the right to, and advocate for "quality of life" for all.
"The world is a better place thanks to people who want to develop and support others. This book is a great resource for parents of children with a disability or special needs, though it will also resonate with a much wider readership. Great care was taken in providing valuable content and thoughtful delivery."
