If you have this disorder or know someone with it then you must have this book!

When my daughter was first diagnosed at age three with HE we were lost. I immediately bought this book and it was my survival guide to get through the beginning phases of this diagnosis. It gave me the power as a parent to go in to her doctors appointments knowing about this disorder which afforded me the opportunity to make more knowledgeable decisions for her care. I highly recommend it for patients, families and even our neurologist wanted a copy. It is a must read if you or a family member have this diagnosis.
