POSITIVELY SHIFTING THE WAY DIFFERENTLY WIRED™ CHILDREN ARE SEEN, UNDERSTOOD, AND SUPPORTED
What is Tilt Parenting?
More than 20 percent of today’s children are in some way neurodivergent, or what Tilt founder Debbie Reber calls, “differently wired.” Tilt Parenting works to change the way neurodifferences in children — ADHD, learning disabilities, autism, giftedness, processing challenges, twice-exceptionality, and more — are perceived and experienced so these exceptional children, and the parents raising them, can thrive in their schools, their families, and in their lives.

Debbie Reber’s bestselling book
“Debbie Reber provides practical advice on a broad range of topics that will be a treasure trove for parents who are desperately seeking guidance in understanding and best supporting their neurodiverse child. This is a wonderfully engaging and much needed book that I will enthusiastically recommend to so many parents and professionals I meet on a regular basis.” — Barry Prizant, Barry M. Prizant, Ph.D., CCC-SLP Adjunct Professor, Brown University
Differently Wired is a revolutionary book—weaving together personal stories and a tool kit of expert advice, it’s a how-to, a manifesto, and a reassuring companion for parents raising the one in five “differently wired” children with ADHD, dyslexia, giftedness, autism, anxiety, or other neurodifferences who can so often feel that they have no place to turn. At the heart of Differently Wired are 18 paradigm-shifting ideas or “tilts,” suggesting a path for how parents, caregivers, and educators can shift our thinking and actions in a way that not only improves the family dynamic, but also allows children to fully realize their best selves.
