Description - Schuyler's Monster by Robert Rummel-Hudson
In this moving and often hilarious memoir, Robert Rummel-Hudson writes about his family's crusade to help Schuyler - a little girl born without the ability to speak. Their quest to find the monster that has stolen her voice takes them from doctor to doctor, despair to hope and back again. When the answer is found (a rare, neurological disorder called bilateral perisylvian polymicrogyria) they take on educators and society to give her a voice so she can further express her engaging and charming personality. Any parent who has gone to battle for their child will find familiar sentiment as well as hope and inspiration in these pages. More than a memoir, "Schuyler's Monster" is the story of a little girl who teaches a man filled with self-doubt how to be the father she most needs him to be.
