helping Kids Cope with Chronic Endocrine Illness

Dr Deb

My name is Dr. Deb and I have worked with many children with endocrine disease. My goal is to help them understand their feelings and reassure them they are not alone.

About The Book

This whimsical picture book explores the trials, experiences and feelings of children who are short or not growing well. As told by a child narrator, he relates how he would interact with short kids in a positive way as that is how he would like to be treated.

For the Parents

Dr. Deb has created a parent workbook to correspond with Someday When I am Bigger. Parents can sensitively discuss growth issues with their child and their siblings and engage in activities to help them navigate their challenges.

Dr. Rotenstein I just wanted to thank you for the care that you gave to our twins years ago. The HGH treatments that you secured for them (with much persistence) has afforded them a height that allows them to feel like confident young men.
