Attention Deficit Disorder: “Sunny”

with No Comments

  You are my sunshine My only sunshine You make my happy When skies are gray You’ll never know dear How much I love you. Please don’t take My sunshine away How many nights I sang that song to a croupy, wheezing, fussy Sunny.

Attention Deficit Disorder: “Dane”

with No Comments

Our son turned ten years old in April of 1996. When we started the program through NACD he was a month shy of eight years old. We had run the gamut of trying to find answers for him, suspecting M.D. or another muscular disorder, autism, dyslexia, myopia, also epilepsy. A psychologist diagnosed ADD immediately. He fit the criteria, but one … Read More

Attention Deficit Disorder: “Brian”

“Saying that you can cure dyslexia is like saying that you can cure blue eyes. You either have it or you don’t,” said a recent college graduate with a degree in learning disabilities.

Autism Spectrum Marcus: Ten Years Later

with No Comments

as told to Iliana Clift Years ago I hung a quote by the Roman orator Cicero on Marcus’s bulletin board that said, “The greater the difficulty…the greater the glory.” This quote describes our journey with Marcus quite well. When we first started the NACD program, he hardly had any speech at all. He was extremely sensitive to sounds and textures, … Read More

No Limits: Luke

with No Comments

by Janine Little, as told to Iliana Clift It breaks my heart to say it, but before we started the NACD program Luke was like a wild animal. He dashed here and there, climbed on tables and cabinets, jumped off and started all over again. He rocked precariously on the seat and back of a recliner while watching television, lined … Read More
