Book Overview

Leah’s Voice is a story that touches on the difficulties children encounter when they meet a child with special needs such as autism.

Children who have a brother or sister with special needs may find it difficult to explain to their friends, or feel disappointed when their friends aren’t more understanding. Leah’s Voice tells the story of two sisters facing these challenges. Through her kindness and devotion, one sister teaches by example the importance of including everyone and showing acceptance.

About the Author

Lori was born and raised in a western suburb of Cleveland, OH. After graduating from Cleveland State University and marrying her husband Matthew, she worked in marketing and lived in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio.

They now live in Oxford, PA just west of Philadelphia.

Before moving from Ohio, their oldest daughter, Leah, was diagnosed at Rainbow Babies and Children’s Hospital with Autistic Spectrum Disorder.

Lori now works in behavioral health as a TSS, therapeutic staff support, with special needs children. Her daughter’s inclusion in the regular educational setting as well as summer camp has been a major contributor to her progress. Children with different abilities being included among their peers at school and in their community is something she strongly supports.
