FC 007: Advocating for your Special Needs Child - Guest: Robert Rummel-Hudson (August 16, 2009)

Family Confidential: Secrets of Successful Parenting with Annie Fox, M.Ed. show

Summary: All kids need parents to advocate for them. Special needs kids need especially loud and pushy parents to go to bat for them at school and help them get what they require to succeed. In this podcast I talk with Robert Rummel-Hudson, author of "Schuyler's Monster - A Father's Journey with his wordless Daughter. (St. Martin's Griffin 2009). In this totally engaging memoir, Rob tells the story of a family struggling to find the answers to a child's dilemma, while chronicling of their unique relationships, formed without traditional language against the expectations of a doubting world. About Robert Rummel-Hudson Robert has been writing online since 1995. During that time, his work has been recognized by the Diarist Awards and has been featured in articles in the Austin Chronicle, the Irish Times, the New Haven Register, the Dallas Morning News, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram and the St. Paul Pioneer Press.
