The One in a Million Baby
About This Show
Our lives are full of odds. We buy lottery tickets when the chances of winning are as small as one in 40 million. But when the circumstances are a little different and the odds mean something rare and unusual, like a chromosomal abnormality or a medical condition in our children, we dismiss the much higher odds which can be as high one in 800 because we assume it won’t be us who make up that one. The One in a Million Baby tells the stories of the children and their parents who find themselves as that one in a thousand, or one in ten thousand, or even one in a million position and how they come to cope.

Episode 24: Dr. Robin McEvoy - Child Decoded
Developmental neuropsychologist Dr. Robin McEvoy and LEAP specialist Kim Gangwish field phone calls, day in day out, from desperate parents who want to help their children. Their children are struggling either with their behaviour, their education or their attention, and they need to know what to do. After fielding these phone calls for years, Robin and Kim partnered with writer and trauma therapist, Marijke Jones, and set about creating a resource that would replace that phone call. They created Child Decoded, a resource for parents who want to know where to turn and who to talk to when their child's needs exceed those of a regular paediatrician. In this episode, Robin talks about the creation of the book and the struggles of parenting when you don't know what to do next.
