I’m Debbie Reber, founder of TiLT Parenting. I’m so glad you’re here!
More than 20 percent of today’s kids are in some way neurologically atypical, or what I refer to as “differently wired.” And because the world isn’t set up to accommodate their unique way to being, these exceptional kids, and the parents raising them, struggle to navigate their journey.
I’ve been there. Scratch that. I AM there. And one of my biggest challenges in figuring out how to best support my son Asher was feeling isolated, disconnected, and hard-pressed to find clear, useful information.
I created TiLT in the hopes that no parent walking this unmarked path will ever feel alone again. And also because I believe that differently-wired isn’t a deficit—it’s a difference.
If you are raising an exceptional kid and want to find out how to tap into the resources at TiLT parenting to do your thing from a place of choice, confidence, and peace, this page is for you.

LEARN MORE ABOUT MY NEW BOOK DIFFERENTLY WIRED
“[Deborah Reber’s] writing is kind, lifting the “shoulds” where most parenting books pile them on. She is inclusive, allowing people to self-select their differently-wiredness. Yet, she puts the responsibility on us in a way that invites possibility, change, and freedom.” — Kathryn Haydon of Sparkivity in The Creativity Post
‘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.’ — Dr. Barry Prizant, author of Uniquely Human: A Different Way of Seeing Autism
“I was in tears within the first few pages, as the early experiences of Debbie and her son Asher resonated so much with our own. Reading on, these tears were quickly wiped away and I knew I was no longer alone on this journey and I had a way forward.” — Amazon reviewer
Deborah Reber provides real tools and practical advice for parents to confidently support their child’s journey, not only at school but also at home and in life. — Amanda Morin, author of The Everything Parent’s Guide to Special Education

One of the most common questions I get asked is…
WHAT IS DIFFERENTLY WIRED?
I use the term differently wired to refer to the millions of people with neurodifferences such as ADHD, giftedness, autism, learning disorders, sensory processing issues, and anxiety, as well as those with no formal diagnosis but who are clearly moving through the world in a unique way and are being told day in and day out that there is something wrong with who they inherently are.
When I use the word “difference” or “differently-wired” rather than “deficit” or “disorder,” I’m not belittling or overlooking the challenges many kids face, but rather am questioning the language around neurodiversity. I believe it’s possible to accept and embrace a different way of being in a way that not only supports healthy development in areas where these kids may have lagging skills, but also feels positive and forward-thinking.
