The ABC's Of Parenting - Book Cover

Autism and You

Author: Dr. Lauren Gerber
Illustrator: Norm Bendell

As a Licensed Clinical Psychologist, who has many families in her practice, I am frequently asked by parents to offer support to children who are diagnosed with a myriad of disabilities. Given the prevalence of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), 1 in 68 children based on the CDC’s latest statistics; I chose to write Autism and You as the first book in a brand new series called the Dr. Lauren Library.

Autism and You is the story of a young boy with Autism Spectrum Disorder who in telling his story helps one understand how it is to live with ASD. There is also a resource guide written for the parents and professionals in the second section of the book. Not only is the DSM 5 diagnosis of ASD quoted in its entirety, but a list of the most informative and research based websites is cited for parents and professionals to use as a guide

Kitchen Table Therapy

Author: Dr. Lauren Gerber
Illustrator: Norm Bendell

As a Licensed Clinical Psychologist, I have had the honor to work with hundreds of families over the years. Parents have repeatedly asked me, “How can we best lay a solid foundation for our children?” My response is “Let mealtime be parenting time, let your kitchen be the heart of your home where learning and bonding occurs daily.” In a digital age with computers, game systems and smartphones taking society by storm, Kitchen Table Therapy helps families refocus and get back to the basics. Fun-filled activities that require only simple ingredients; a family, a kitchen table, and your time, are the “meat and potatoes” of this heart-warming family book.

Does God Have An Email Address - Book Cover

Does God Have an Email Address?

Authors: Dr. Lauren Gerber & Jake Bennett Gerber
Illustrator: Norm Bendell

After losing his pet, Comet, my son Jake sought to deal with his personal grief.
As a family, we were also grieving as our Labradors are integral to our family.
Whether it is the loss of a pet, a grandparent, or any close family member and/or friend; Does God Have an Email Address? is a wonderful book co-authored by a Licensed Clinical Psychologist and her son, designed as a family exercise to help process loss utilizing a non-sectarian sense of spirituality. The ideas shared in this story were helpful to Jake when he was looking for answers and seeking comfort. Important to note, this book transcends the concept of a pet’s death and can apply to any loss that a child or adolescent experiences and wants to work through with the support of their parent. I share this special tribute to Comet from our family to yours.
