Going Solo while raising children with disabilities


going_solo            Dr. Marshak’s new book was just published and  is available through Amazon and Woodbine House.com

It the first book to focus on solo parents of children with a wide range of disabilities include developmental disabilities, chronic illness, physical disabilities and ones that impact mental health. Fran and I have always believed in the wisdom of parents. So in keeping with this belief, I reached out to solo parents wherever I could find them to learn their best strategies for living life well while raising one or more children with disabilities on their own. Albert Einstein said that everyone is a genius at something, so I decided to highlight the genius strategies embedded in their personal narratives. I advertised for solos through Craigslist amongst other places and had the fortune of meeting interesting wonderful people. When possible, I traveled to meet them and get their stories. I will be sharing them with readers in this book along with everything I have learned being a psychologist specializing in disabilities for more than the past 25 years. The book is in keeping with the goal that I share with Fran Prezant which is to help families and individuals thrive while living with disability within the family
