Ada Anbar is a long time educator with a Ph.D. in Early Childhood Education from the University at Buffalo, New York. After a 40-year teaching career, she now is a full-time writer.
Anbar is author of several parenting books that discuss early childhood development issues and the difficulties that mothers encounter in balancing their needs with those of their young children.
Anbar’s latest book titled “When Love Meets Dementia – Frontotemporal Degeneration (FTD) and the Family”, is based on her experience with her late husband.
Shedding light on a little known brain disease, this volume examines FTD from a few angles, beginning with the author’s insightful memoir of her husband’s struggle with FTD and its impact on their family. Detailed background information on the disease is provided along with discussion of related issues, and information on how to minimize the chances of becoming a victim.
Anbar lives in Phoenix, Arizona close to her children, and is the proud mother of two sons and grandmother of six grandchildren.
