Extraordinary Gifts, Unique Challenges: Williams Syndrome is a collection of essays written by parents, family, and friends of individuals with Williams syndrome. In their own words, they tell stories of challenges and triumphs. They share their own heartaches and moments of bliss.
In addition, nine adults with Williams syndrome give advice to younger people with the diagnosis, while reflecting on what their own parents did that helped them the most.
The collection is poignant, funny, authentic, and heartwarming. It will make you recognize the gifts and challenges in your own children, whether they have Williams syndrome or not.
