This week I heard from Jennifer Lyman, a true Warrior Mom and Pia Stampe, PT, who I wrote about in my book.Both had come up with a great idea for holiday gifts.
Jennifer wrote, "Dr. Pape’s book made the perfect Christmas gift for the entire team of therapists and educators who work with my son day in and day out. Her inspiring, real life examples backed up by years of neuroscience research provide insight into the potential for real change for those impacted by early developmental brain injuries. Dr. Pape is a beautiful writer, her book is a quick read and it will certainly be considered an thoughtful and thought provoking gift."

Several years ago, Pia gave all her staff a present of Norman Doidge's book, The Brain That Changes Itself and this year they are getting my book. I hope that as more of your healthcare teams learn about baby brain neuroplasticity, we can start a movement for change everywhere.

Happy holidays everyone.
