Synopses & Reviews
This book is a concise, accessible, all-in-one guide for parents, teachers, and other professionals to a range of often co-existing neuro-behavioral disorders in children. Dr. Kutscher provides case vignettes, practical tips and highly effective behavioral recommendations on how to respond to children who display traits of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), obsessive-compulsive disorder, Asperger's syndrome, depression, bipolar disorder, autism, nonverbal learning disabilities, sensory integration problems, and executive dysfunction, in home, school or other settings. Causes, symptoms, interaction with other conditions and treatments are clearly explained, as are related anxiety, learning and socialization issues. The author's sympathetic approach and skilful explanations of the inner world of such children makes this a positive and accessible guide that avoids the need to consult multiple references for each of the conditions featured.
