Parents of children with learning differences, such as ADD/ADHD and dyslexia, have a unique and exciting road ahead of them. This phenomenon may have been perceived as a burden when their child was first diagnosed, but know that God does not make mistakes. Therefore, parents must refocus their personal expectations of what their child should be and find out where God is guiding this child. It is time to become God’s helper in raising his child. In Of Different Minds, readers will learn why their child is wired a little differently and how to cope with and educate this incredible person. The book also addresses parental denial and the mystery and fear surrounding ADD/ADHD, dyslexia, and related disorders; the toll on marriage; how to parent these children; the future of the family; and the future for these children. Can a learning different child be successful? Of course, says Maren Angelotti, and here are the tools to set parents and their children on the path to success.
MAREN ANGELOTTI, M.A.T., is an Academic Language Therapist and AD/HD instructor for both children and adults. She is a frequently requested speaker and consultant to home school associations, educational facilities and universities around the country on the dynamics of dealing with learning differences from a biblical perspective and on the implementation of effective remediation methods.
Angelotti was born and raised in Southern California. She received Bachelors Degrees in Sociology and Theological Studies from Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles and a Master’s Degree in Teaching from Dallas Baptist University, Dallas, Texas.
A mother of four, Angelotti first became involved in learning different education when her daughter was diagnosed with ADD at age 11. In an effort to help her own child, she discovered the pain and confusion that many parents go through in trying to help their learning different children live a normal life.
Angelotti is the founder of Of Different Minds, Inc., an organization that provides educational seminars for both teachers and parents – offering the tools to bridge the understanding of the learning different child and the world around them.
Her first book, Of Different Minds: A Perspective Study of Learning Differences in Children, was released in January, 2009.
