Birmingham Covington School (BCS)

1525 Covington Road • Bloomfield Hills, MI 48301

 Please join us for a book discussion of “Shut Up About Your Perfect Kid: A Survival Guide for Ordinary Parents of Special Children”, written by Gina Gallagher and Patricia Konjoian. “This refreshingly frank book, which will make you want to tear your hair out and laugh your head off, should be required reading for parents of disabled children.” Please come ready to discuss and chat with other Friends. There will also be time to share other books that you have read that have helped you with the learning challenges that your children face. Enjoy a chance to renew past acquaintances and meet new Friends.
