In 2006, Lisa co-authored “No Parent Left Behind – A Guide to Working with Your Child’s School” with Pamela Petrosino. The book’s purpose was to demystify the school system and educational jargon so that all parents could be active partners in helping their children receive the best possible education. The book was inspired by hers and Ms. Petrosino’s children, who were very different learners. Lisa’s adult son, a college graduate, was classified with ADHD from kindergarten through high school. She was surprised at the struggle to obtain an education for him that would nurture and challenge him and prepare him for adult life.
