Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"Diagnosed at the age of 33 with a spectrum of neurological disorders (ADHD, dyslexia, etc.), author Hendrickx (Love, Sex, and Long Term Relationships: What People with Asperger Syndrome Really Want) began a consultancy and training firm based in the conviction that, as stated by Harvey Blume in the NY Times, 'neuro-diversity may be every bit as crucial for the human race as biodiversity is for life in general.' Coined by Blume, 'neuro-diversity' describes a range of overlapping atypical neurological conditions that render cognitive and sensory experience in 'different' ways. Chapters are each devoted to a single disorder-attention deficit and hyperactivity, autism, dyslexia, anxiety, obsessive compulsive, and others-including symptoms, history, modern thinking, guidelines for self-help and support, and testimony from 'those affected.' Hendrickx catalogs compensating strengths as well as areas of difficulty, and identifies many gradations in the neuro-diverse spectrum that aren't typically recognized (in general, only extreme cases are considered worthy of diagnosis). Hendrickx addresses a lack of resources for the increasing numbers of adults being diagnosed in their 20s, 30s, and beyond, and provides a helpful overview for medical and teaching professionals, families and friends of the affected, and those unsure about the severity of their cognitive issues."

Book News Annotation:

This guide provides information on neurological and developmental disorders that affect adolescents and adults (rather than focusing on children), including autism spectrum disorders, dyslexia, dyspraxia, ADHD, OCD, Touret‛s, and anxiety disorders, for individuals with these disorders, medical practitioners, teachers, counselors, family members, and others working with them. Coverage encompasses their history, causes and characteristics, implications for the individual, diagnosis and assessment, treatments and approaches, and support strategies, as well as teaching approaches and workplace adjustments. Medication is not covered in detail. The chapter on dyslexia is by Claire Slater, who manages an assessment, support, training, consultancy, and advocacy company for people with dyslexia. Hendrickx is an author who runs a training and consultancy firm on autism, Asperger syndrome, dyslexia, and other neurological and developmental conditions.
