Synopsis

A Special Education One Family's Journey Through the Maze of Learning Disabilities by Charlotte Farber, Dana Buchman

The celebrated designer Dana Buchman knew almost nothing about learning differences when her daughter, Charlotte, was diagnosed with disabilities as a toddler. She soon discovered that the hard work and determination that had taken her from the Ivy League to her own fashion label wouldn't be enough to deal with Charlotte's disabilities she would have to acquire a new skill set-to be able to see Charlotte as a person with unique abilities. A moving mother-daughter story, A Special Education is an inspiring account of one mother's journey to acceptance and understanding, as well as a family's triumph over daunting circumstances.
