From the Publisher
When Schuyler Rummel-Hudson was eighteen months old, a question
about her lack of speech by her pediatrician set in motion a
journey that continues today. When she was diagnosed with bilateral
perisylvian polymicrogyria (an extremely rare neurological
disorder), her parents were given a name for the monster that had
been stalking them from doctor to doctor, and from despair to hope,
and back again.
Once they knew why Schuyler couldn't speak, they needed to
determine how to help her learn. They took on educators and society
to give their beautiful daughter a voice, and in the process
learned a thing or two about fearlessness, tenacity, and joy.
More than a memoir of a parent dealing with his child's
disability, Schuyler's Monster is a tale of a little girl who
silently teaches a man filled with self-doubt how to be the father
