Now fully updated to include the new DSM-5 diagnostic categories, this is a concise guide to the range of often co-existing neuro-behavioral disorders in children – from ADHD, OCD, and anxiety, to autism spectrum disorders, nonverbal learning disabilities, Tourette's, sensory integration problems and executive dysfunction.
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.

One of the best books to help parents and teachers learn to compassionately teach a child with spectrum behavioral syndromes. Knowing what challenges my smart child helps me better organize a homework time, a learning time, and shows me to celebrate his creative, character traits instead of following private school practices of focusing on childs negative behaviour as a mainstay of character development and daily punishment. This book, every parent who has a child with ADHD should read.
A must read, in order to help your child.

Very detailed excellent resource. Scarey as discipline and support works different for these special children

The empathy and compassion that the author has for the children dealing with these diagnoses is apparent as well as his understanding of the caregivers position of wanting to help but often being on the receiving end of difficult behaviors. Awareness of the syndromes and how they interact and affect each other is invaluable to parents, teachers, and physicians.
