Product Description:

By Schilling, Shonda [ [ The Best Kind of Different: Our Family's Journey with Asperger's Syndrome ] ] Mar-2011[ Paperback ]

From the Back Cover:

Until the summer of 2007 the word Asperger's was not a part of Shonda Schilling's vocabulary. But by then her household was in total chaos. Her young son Grant's acting out, irrational behavior, and apparent inability to relate to the people around him had grown to epic proportions. The fact that Shonda's husband, All-Star pitching great Curt Schilling, was constantly on the road with the Boston Red Sox only complicated matters. Then a neurologist diagnosed Grant with Asperger's syndrome a form of high-functioning autism found in children who, at first glance, appear disruptive and difficult and their entire lives changed.

In The Best Kind of Different, Shonda details every step of her family's journey with Asperger's, celebrating Grant's successes and learning from his setbacks. A tribute to Grant's strength and a candid glimpse into a family coming to terms with its differences, it is an intimate portrait of two parents struggling to understand the complex beauty of their son.
