by

Misdiagnosis and Dual Diagnoses of Gifted Children and Adults: ADHD, Bipolar, Ocd, Asperger's, Depression, and Other Disorders Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Our brightest, most creative children and adults are often being misdiagnosed with behavioral and emotional disorders such as ADHD, Oppositional-Defiant Disorder, Bipolar, OCD, or Asperger?s. Many receive unneeded medication and inappropriate counseling as a result. Physicians, psychologists, and counselors are unaware of characteristics of gifted children and adults that mimic pathological diagnoses. Six nationally prominent health care professionals describe ways parents and professionals can distinguish between gifted behaviors and pathological behaviors. ?These authors have brought to light a widespread and serious problem?the wasting of lives from the misdiagnosis of gifted children and adults and the inappropriate treatment that often follows.? Jack G. Wiggins, Ph. D., Former President, American Psychological Association

Book News Annotation:

Five psychologists and a pediatrician describe the behavior patterns of gifted children and explain how to distinguish them from the symptoms of ADHD, anger diagnoses, anxiety and mood disorders, learning disabilities, and sleep disorders. The diagnosis guidance and clinical vignettes can be helpful for teachers, social workers, health care professionals, and parents.
