Will My Kid Grow Out of It?

A Child Psychologist's Guide to Understanding Worrisome Behavior Bonny J. Forrest

Summary

A parental road map to navigate a child's mental health

Helping parents determine whether their child's behavior is typical for the age or, possibly, a sign of something more serious they should look into, Will My Kid Grow Out of It? uses lay terms and concrete examples to aid adults in establishing if their child may have a commonly diagnosed issue such as ADHD, depression, a learning disability, and others; where to go to get help; how to get support from schools and the medical community; and what questions to ask along the way. Each chapter expands on a specific set of behaviors that may be problematic by listing types of problems, possible diagnoses, the types of treatments that have been found to be effective, discussions of the pros and cons of alternative treatments, and typical medications. The book provides readers with access to a free interactive online screening tool and Project SKIP. Extensive ancillary resources- such as an overview of child brain development, organizations and hotlines for families, a list of commonly used medications for mental health, and a glossar

Dyslexia and ADHD

The Miracle Cure Wynford Dore

Summary

A

controversial drug-free method of treatment for learning disabilities, the Dore program has been hotly debated

in

the medical community. In this account, the man who began it all shares how dyslexia impacted his life and

why the program he created works, complete with success stories. One man's quest to help his daughter led to the start of a whole new way of treating learning and attention difficulties, and this is his astounding story. When she was only nine years old, Susie Dore was diagnosed as dyslexic and told that nothing could be done to help her. Her increasing depression eventually led to three suicide attempts. Wynford set about finding a way to help her, selling his multimillion-dollar business and pouring

his fortune into researching dyslexia and learning difficulties. His team of researchers showed that, almost invariably, these problems are caused by an incomplete physiological development and that an answer to them might be found in a specialized exercise program. This revolutionary book captures the findings that Dore

proponents believe will change the way dysle

The ADHD Effect on Marriage

Understand and Rebuild Your Relationship in Six Steps Melissa C. Orlov

Summary

An invaluable resource for couples in which one or both partners have Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), this authoritative book guides troubled partners towards an understanding and appreciation for the struggles and triumphs of a relationship affected by it, and to integrate ADHD into their relationship in a more positive and less disruptive way. Going beyond traditional marriage counseling which can often discount the influence of ADHD, this discussion offers advice from the author's personal experience and years of research and identifies patterns of behavior that can hurt marriages-such as nagging, intimacy problems, sudden anger, and memory issues-through the use of descriptions of actual couples and their ADHD struggles and solutions. The first third of the book is dedicated to helping couples identify how ADHD impacts their relationship. The last two- thirds provides a specific set of steps couples can move through to overcome their hurt and anger, once again develop loving ways to interact with each other, and find the joy they've lost in their struggles. This b

Rethinking ADHD

Integrated Approaches to Helping Children at Home and at School Vicki Anderson, Tim Godber

Summary

A comprehensive and balanced approach to diagnosis and treatment is provided in this guide to ADHD. With the

number of children diagnosed with ADHD increasing each year, the book suggests that doctors and parents too often rely on drugs without discussing long-term effects or treating contributing factors. This fresh analysis acknowledges that external factors such as the quality of long-term childcare facilities, the frenetic pace of modern life, social disadvantage, and emotional disruption caused by divorce and family dysfunction all contribute to children's ability to learn, concentrate, and self-regulate behavior. Case studies and practical recommendations for working in partnership with parents and children with behavioral and attention problems are included. Beneficial for teachers, psychologists, therapists, childcare workers, counselors, social workers, and parents, this resource provides a deeper understanding of children with attention and behavior problems.

ADHD

How to Deal with Very Difficult Children Alan Train

Summary

The causes of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) are a matter of debate, but the problems that it creates can have a disastrous effect on a child's ability to learn, socialize, and lead a normal life. Directed at parents and teachers, this guide explains what the condition is, how it is diagnosed and what they can do to help the child in a positive and lasting way. It also addresses the needs of the adults, recognizing that they must first learn to deal with their own reactions and emotions. The treatment the resource advocates is aimed at enabling the child with ADHD to acquire techniques of self-control that will give him or her the strength to cope and which can be developed and refined through the years to adulthood. Drug therapy, the book stresses, should be considered as an effective complement to the measures which can be adopted by both home and school.

Understand Your Brain, Get More Done

The ADHD Executive Functions Workbook Ari Tuckman

Summary

Written for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) sufferers yet useful for anyone wishing make better use of their time, this book is abundant with effective strategies for combating problems related to inattention, procrastination, disorganization, mismanagement of time, and poor planning. It begins by carefully explaining the neurologic underpinnings of ADHD and focusing on specific executive functions-the brain-based processes that assist in planning, initiating, and carrying out tasks to complete projects. Then using exercises designed to identify areas that need addressing, it aims to "tune up" these executive functions for maximum productivity. In contrast to many books on ADHD, which can have good ideas but lack practical ways to apply them in everyday life, this guide includes specific recommendations for improving distractibility, working memory, attention, organization, time management, and response inhibition deficits. With strategies based in the science of how the ADHD brain processes information, this reference bridges the gap between knowledge and action.

Raise Them Up

The Real Deal on Reaching Unreachable Kids Kareem Moody, Anitra Budd

Summary

The dramatic, real-world experiences of hard-to-reach youth inspire these vivid and compelling essays on effectively connecting with disengaged children. Written by an ex-gang member and former unreachable kid, the jargon-free approach helps adults be intentional about engagement and turn seemingly dire situations into inspirational success stories. Underlying each account is an emphasis on the need for a focused, ongoing dialogue with at-risk young people about their unique strengths and opportunities to be healthy, vibrant members of society--against all odds. The positive method embodies Search Institute's 40 Developmental Assets™ and includes five detailed asset-building suggestions.

Train Your Brain for Success

A Teenager's Guide to Executive Functions

Randy Kulman

Summary

Executive functions are a set of thinking, problem-solving, and self-control skills that tell the brain what to do, and this book demonstrates the ways kids use executive functions in school, at home, and in their other activities and shows how these skills can be improved through sustained effort. Beginning with a test to determine executive-functioning strengths and weaknesses, the book then explores in detail eight distinct sets of skills, including planning, organization, focus, time management, self-control, flexibility, memory, and self- awareness. In addition to giving an overview of each executive-functioning skill and how these skills are used in the real world, the book-intended as a self-directed learning guide for students themselves-also provides teens tools and tips for improving executive functions, including how to use video games, iPods, cell phones, and other electronic media to their advantage. A section for teachers and parents who may be dealing with a teenager with one or more executive dysfunctions is also included, as well as information for teens on how to rec

Not Stupid

Anna Kennedy

Summary

When Anna and Sean Kennedy discovered that their sons Patrick and Angelo suffered with Asperger's Syndrome and autism respectively, they were truly devastated-but their family's troubles were just beginning. Placed in mainstream nurseries and schools, Patrick and Angelo endured traumatic experiences in a system woefully equipped to cater for their complex needs. Like so many parents, Anna and Sean, having been turned away by no fewer than 26 special needs schools when searching for appropriate educational facilities for the boys, were down-but not out. The local education authority had a fight on its hands. Anna was determined to prove that for children like her sons, the challenges of growing up with autism did not have to end in defeat.Through sheer guts and determination, they turned their situation into a victory for parent power by transforming a disused local school into a center of excellence for the care and support of those with autism. Anna's story, and that of her ever-improving sons, is a beacon of inspiration for parents of special needs children everywhere.

Author Bio

Anna Kennedy cofounded the charity Hillingdon Autistic Care and Support in 1997. By 1999, with the fellow directors, the Kennedys had opened Hillingdon Manor School, a specialist primary school for children with an autistic spectrum disorder. By 2003, Hillingdon Manor School had expanded to open a middle and upper school, and now provides specialist education for 85 children with autistic spectrum disorders aged between three and

Dads and Autism

How to Stay In the Game Emerson B Donnell

Summary

With the divorce rate of parents of an autistic child estimated to be as high as 85%, this resource finally addresses this heartbreaking statistic and shows parents how to beat the odds. Recognizing an autistic child's inability to connect with other people, and how this can particularly affect fathers, the tools and examples provided here will teach dads how to connect and help them stay the course. These specific strategies to develop affection and proper emotional response are designed to break a child through the gray shell of autism and blossom the colorful humanity that is hidden within. The book also delves into all the current theories of autism's causes, addresses the inconsistencies of each one, and explores epigenetics, the new science that may finally tie those loose ends together.

Children and Babies with Mood Swings

New Insights for Parents and Professionals Stanley I. Greenspan, Cindy Glovinsky, Ira Glovin

Summary

Addressing the challenges of living with a child whose moods are extreme and unpredictable, this book transcends traditional tendencies and diagnoses by discussing mood swings in terms of how they develop, instead of presenting the reader with the usual list of symptoms and treatments. The complex interplay between children's emotional states and the various developmental milestones that lie along the pathway to adulthood are described, offering hope to parents by giving them a whole new way of looking at an old problem that paradoxically seems to be increasing in modern times.

A Medical Miracle, a Friendship, and the Weird World of Tourette Syndrome

James A. Fussell, Jeffrey P. Matovic, Jeff Foxwort

Summary

When Jeff Matovic burst into the office of Dr. Robert Maciunas, he had very few options left. Matovic had suffered for years from Tourette Syndrome, his full-body spasms and outbursts getting progressively worse, to the point that he saw suicide as a viable option. Drugs, physical therapy, prayer-nothing was working. But Dr. Maciunas was a pioneer in deep brain stimulation (DBS), a new therapy that had worked to correct other brain disorders. Could it fix Matovic's Tourette's? All Matovic had to do was convince Dr. Maciunas that he was a perfect candidate for the procedure. That, and have several electrical leads-a "brain pacemaker"-implanted into his skull.

Author Jim Fussell is uniquely qualified to tell Matovic's story-he suffers from Tourette Syndrome as well. Fussell's job as a feature writer for the Kansas City Star brought him in contact with Oprah Winfrey, who first told him about Jeff Matovic, the "Miracle Man." As Fussell learned about Matovic's remarkable journey, he vowed to seek him out. This is their story.

Author Bio

James A. Fussell is a feature writer for the Kansas City Star who has struggled with Tourette's from childhood. Jeffrey P. Matovic is the first person to have his Tourette Syndrome controlled through deep brain stimulation. Jeff Foxworthy is a comedian, an author, and a television performer.
