Who would have thought that the kid who was kicked out of nearly every school—and voted by his family likely to end up in jail—would become an inspiring, hilarious and sought-after convention speaker? (Not to mention a successful medical doctor, author, and happily married husband and homeschool dad.)
Probably just God. No wonder one of Stephen Guffanti MD’s favorite messages is this: "Your child may never be normal—but he can be extraordinary!"
As a medical doctor, author, and homeschooler, Stephen Guffanti, M.D., offers a unique background and tremendous insight, and communicates with warmth and humor. Not only is Stephen a physician, but he’s also dyslexic and ADHD, and from this unusual perspective he brings hope and understanding to families. Born with a passion for education as well as medicine, Dr. Steve has served as the medical director of a clinic specializing in learning disorders and has studied nutrition and its effects on learning.
Dr. Steve’s books include:
