Kids In The Syndrome Mix Of ADHD, LD, Autism Spectrum, Tourette's, Anxiety, And More!: The One-stop Guide For Parents, Teachers, And Other Professionals

The completely updated and expanded new edition of this well-established text incorporates DSM-5 changes as well as other new developments. The all-in-one guide covers the whole range of often co-existing neuro-behavioral disorders in children – from attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), obsessive-compulsive disorder, and anxiety, to autism spectrum disorders, nonverbal learning disabilities, Tourette's, sensory integration problems, and executive dysfunction. A completely revised chapter on the autism spectrum by Tony Attwood explains not only new understanding in the field, but the new diagnostic criteria, and the anticipated usage of the term 'Asperger's Syndrome'. Dr. Kutscher provides accessible information on causes, symptoms, interactions with other conditions, and treatments. He presents effective behavioral strategies for responding to children who display traits of these disorders – whether at home, at school, or in other settings – along with case vignettes and practical tips. Finally, a chapter on the role of medications summarizes current knowledge.The author's sympathetic yet upbeat approach and skillful explanations of the inner world of children in the syndrome mix make this an invaluable companion for parents, teachers, professionals, and anyone else who needs fast and to-the-point advice on children with special needs.

I cannot believe I am the first to review this book. I picked it up from my local library and now I am here to buy my own copy, it is that good. Accept your child where they are in their brain based disability? Shocking idea! I am so happy to read this from an MD. He gets it! wonderful book that should be in every school and parent library, ASD, ADHD, anxiety disorder (and other diagnoses) parent or not!

I absolutely love this book! It has given so much peace and clarity as a mother of children in the syndrome mix and also as an educator.This book clearly gives specifics for accommodations for the child and peace for the care giver. It goes in to clear detail without being overwhelming. I would urge everyone to read this book even if be for the sake awareness of awareness alone!

This book is a gem!!!!! The author is absolutely amazing. I have been a school counselor for 23 years and this book is by far the most informative, valuable, well written, easy to understand tool I have ever used. I recommend it to teachers, parents and other counselors whenever I have the opportunity!!!Thank you, Dr. Kutscher!!!

Great book for understanding some of the most common diagnoses facing kids today and written in a language designed for teaching parents and professionals empathy toward their child, student or patient's point of view, standing in his or her shoes. Who knew that most kids with ADHD may not only struggle with inattention or behavioral issues, but low self esteem and insecurity at not being able to keep up with their peers. The book gives many practicals and encourages parents, teachers and professionals to advocate for their unique child or student and coaches through the frustrations too. A great go to reference for all caregivers and professionals.

This is a wonderful and affordable book! I strongly recommend it to every parent and teacher. It gives a clear explanation of each disability and disorder and provides wise, doable methods to ensure the child's optimal growth and success.

Excellent source for anyone that has someone they love in the syndrome mix!!!

Excellent book, easy to read, well researched, balanced. Highly recommend esp for kids on the spectrum and for any kids with Tourette's (which is hard to come by!).

A must book for anyone who has or is close to one of these great kids.
