Tommy is not like other puppies his age. While his brothers, Bear and Benji, like to go for tractor rides, he would rather sit under the shade of the oak trees and doodle. The "family favorite" dish is not his favorite, and he tends to go a little overboard during family dance parties.
Follow Tommy's journey as he learns to embrace his differences and live out his unique purpose.
Different By Design was inspired by our family's personal experiences with special needs. What we've learned through our journey, and we hope you will too, is that often what many call "weaknesses" are actually our greatest strengths. As parents, teachers, friends and family members, we can help all children recognize and embrace their unique abilities, and encourage them to use their differences to make a difference in the world.

When my oldest son and I began brainstorming this story, I knew I wanted him to be the one to bring it to life.
Avery was diagnosed with Sensory Processing Disorder when he was 5 years old. SPD makes him more sensitive to sight, sound, taste and texture... but it also makes him the most creative, caring, and detail-attentive kid I know.
Your children will be delighted at his colorful and animated drawings that bring Tommy and his family to life.
