Here's why ADHD could be the key to your success. For decades physicians delivered the diagnosis of ADHD to patients as bad news and warned them about a lifelong struggle of managing symptoms. But The ADHD Advantage explodes this outlook, showing that some of the most highly successful entrepreneurs, leaders, and entertainers have reached the pinnacle of success not in spite of their ADHD but because of it. Although the ADHD stereotype is someone who can't sit still, in reality people with ADHD are endlessly curious, often adventurous, willing to take smart risks, and unusually resilient. They are creative, visionary, and entrepreneurial. Sharing the stories of highly successful people with ADHD, Dr. Archer offers a vitally important and inspiring new way to recognize ADHD traits in oneself or in one's loved ones, and then leverage them to great advantage - without drugs. As someone who not only has ADHD himself but also has never used medication to treat it, Dr. Archer understands the condition from a unique standpoint. Armed with new science and research, he hopes to generate public interest and even debate with his positive message as he guides the millions of people with ADHD worldwide toward a whole new appreciation of their many strengths and full innate potential.

A rare and diverse collection of autistic voices that highlights to parents the unique needs of girls and nonbinary people who are growing up with autism. Most resources available for parents come out of the medical model of disability - from psychologists, educators, parents, and doctors - offering parents a narrow and technical approach to autism. Furthermore, it is widely believed that many autistic girls and women are underdiagnosed, which has further limited the information available regarding the unique needs of girls and nonbinary people with autism. Sincerely, Your Autistic Child represents an authentic resource for parents written by people who understand this experience most, autistic people themselves. From childhood and education to gender identity and sexuality, this anthology of autistic contributors tackles the everyday challenges of growing up while honestly addressing the emotional needs, sensitivity, and vibrancy of autistic girls and nonbinary people. Written like letters to parents, the contributors reflect on what they have learned while growing up with autism and how parents can avoid common mistakes and overcome challenges while raising their child. Sincerely, Your Autistic Child calls parents to action by raising awareness and redefining "normal" in order to help parents make their child feel truly accepted, valued, and celebrated for who they are.

Parenting an anxious child means facing constant challenges and questions: When should parents help children avoid anxiety-provoking situations, and when should they encourage them to face their fears? How can parents foster independence while still supporting their children? How can parents reduce the hold their child's anxiety has taken over the entire family? Breaking Free of Child Anxiety and OCD: A Scientifically Proven Program for Parents is the first and only book to provide a completely parent-based treatment program for child and adolescent anxiety. Parents will learn how to alleviate their children's anxiety by changing the way they themselves respond to their children's symptoms - importantly, parents are not required to impose changes on their children's behavior. Instead, parents are shown how to replace their own accommodating behaviors (which allow anxiety to flourish) with supportive responses that demonstrate both acceptance of children's difficulties and confidence in their ability to cope. From understanding child anxiety and OCD, to learning how to talk with an anxious child, to avoiding common traps and pitfalls (such as being overly protective or demanding) to identifying the ways in which parents have been enabling a child's anxious behaviors, this book is full of detailed guidance and practical suggestions.

A comprehensive resource for parents, therapists, caregivers, and educators, packed with lifelong strategies for Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) management and support. Newly revised and updated, this user-friendly guide addresses autism identification, treatment, and prevention from pre-conception through adulthood. Outsmarting Autism describes more than 50 practical approaches with proven efficacy, including lifestyle modification, dietary considerations, and boosting the immune system. After health improves, focus turns to developing the sensory foundations for communication, social skills, and learning.

Because every person with autism is unique, this book guides listeners to the therapies that may be right for each individual, helping to make the difference between management and healing. New research on topics like stem cells, cannabis, and dentistry is now included.

Current child-rearing techniques seek to develop children who are confident, self-assured, and unafraid to speak their minds-lions instead of lambs. Although largely positive, this shift has brought with it some very serious problems in our children's behavior. Without going back to an authoritarian model, Joe Newman has developed new ways of helping children develop the ability to self-regulate without undermining their confidence, and individuality. One of the best books on child-rearing. Joe Newman describes a cultural shift that has reinforced anxiety and behavior disorders in children by negating parental authority. Even more important, he provides specific, non-punitive ways for parents to help their kids by taking back their authority. Filled with examples and experiences from the authors own life as a child with A.D.H.D., the book is a treasure-trove of useful information. (Barry Michels, psychotherapist and New York Times bestselling author of The Tools) This book is packed with useful information. It is an insightful and practical guide for managing children. I would recommend it to any parent. (L. Alan Sroufe, Professor Emeritus Ph.D. University of Minnesota) Raising Lions challenges us to re-examine our interactions and relationships with children, re-think the root causes of behavior problems, and find new ways to support healthy, happy development. For over 20 years Joe Newman has worked with children, parents, teachers, and administrators to help them understand and improve child behavior.

Understanding Girls with ADHD does not shy away from key areas of controversy. How, for example, can a family know whether it's ADHD or another set of problems that's the primary issue? How does one deal with the potential use of medication, which is plagued by bad press and abundant myths but which can, as part of a multi-faceted treatment plan, provide great benefit if the right dose is found and if the doctor works with the family to monitor positive effects and side effects carefully? What about longterm risk for eating pathology, substance abuse, and other difficult areas of impairment of salience for girls? How can girls and their families break through the thicket of negative expectations and sometimes toxic family interactions to pave the way for a different set of outcomes? Always sensitive, and without hesitation in providing an authoritative tone, this book will empower girls and their families in ways that are sorely needed. Its emphasis on gender-specific manifestations of ADHD and its inclusion of practical means of attacking the executive function deficits that plague girls and women with ADHD will ensure its continued status as core guidebook.

"Managing" your anxiety and panic attacks belongs to the past. It's time to recover. Children who experience worry and anxiety should tell you how they feel, but only when they are not frightened of becoming embarrassed, humiliated, or punished. Parents face particular challenges due to the fact children with anxiety tend to be nervous, avoidant, annoying, or exhausting. If you become frustrated and make these children feel bad, they cease being honest and begin telling you they are tired, unwell, or don't care. Without having real improvement, stressed and nervous children will try to keep away from experiencing anything terrible. A lot start to avoid circumstances where there is only a small likelihood they will end up feeling bad. Eventually, they end up making options based mostly on feared situations and not realities. If this remains, quite a few of these children will try to make new friends who could help them feel better. But in most cases, they lead to mastering escaping the problems using isolation, skipping school, becoming a member of "fringe" groups, looking for thrills, rejecting responsibility socially, or using alcohol and other drugs. In time, children and anxiety begin to express rage instead of their concern. Anger feels better than fear, and it is simpler for children to blame others if they can't escape feeling bad. On the other hand, blaming themselves instead of others leads to depression. Children reinforce and offer supremacy to their fears once they act to stay away from or escape unrealistic worries. In this way, the anxiousness grows. The child's self-confidence will fail to blossom at home and in school. What you will learn in this audiobook: Instructions to help your child prepare for college Child anxiety - when should I ask for help for my child? Relieve and reduce anxiety and regain control of your time Step-by-step instructions to cope after losing a child-custody case Instructions to cope with sibling jealousy Simple steps on how parents can cope with an autistic child Child anxiety treatment Child anxiety treatment - tips for concerned parents Anxiety treatment - finding the answer for children Social anxiety treatment for children Anti-anxiety medication for children - two facts caregivers must know It is an unfortunate but authentic truth that stress and nervousness in children and anxiety is a common issue in today's fast-paced, high-tech, activity-packed culture. If your child is experiencing fear and nervousness, try these uncomplicated but efficient approaches to reduce anxiety in children.

Help your child cultivate real, lasting confidence! In Kid Confidence, a licensed clinical psychologist and parenting expert offers practical, evidence-based parenting strategies to help kids foster satisfying relationships, develop competence, and make choices that fit who they are and want to become. As parents, its heartbreaking to hear children say negative things about themselves. But as children grow older and begin thinking about the world in more complex ways, they also become more self-critical. Alarmingly, studies show that self-esteem, for many children, takes a sharp drop starting around age eight, and this decline continues into the early teen years. So, how can you turn the tide on this upsetting trend and help your child build genuine self-esteem? With this guide, youll learn that self-esteem isnt about telling kids they're "special". Its about helping them embrace the freedom that comes with a quiet ego - a way of being in the world that isn't preoccupied with self-judgment, and instead embraces a compassionate view of oneself and others that allows for both present awareness and personal growth. When kids are less focused on evaluating and comparing themselves with others, they are freer to empathize with others, embrace learning, and connect with the values that are bigger than themselves. Youll also discover how your childs fundamental needs for connection, competence, and choice are essential for real self-esteem. Connection involves building meaningful and satisfying relationships that create a sense of belonging. Competence means building tangible skills. And choice is about being able to make decisions, figure out what matters, and choose to act in ways that are consistent with personal values. When children are able to fulfill these three basic needs, the question of "Am I good enough?" is less likely to come up. If your child is suffering from low self-esteem, you need a nuanced parenting approach. Let this audiobook guide you as you help your child create unshakable confidence and lasting well-being.

Amen, MD was one of the first to identify that there are multiple types beyond just purely hyperactive or inattentive ADD, each requiring a different treatment.

Sufferers from ADD often say, The harder I try, the worse it gets. Dr. Amen tells them, for the first time, why, and more importantly how to heal ADD.

Let Me Go is the powerful new memoir from foster carer and Sunday Times best-selling author Casey Watson. Harley, 13, has been sectioned under the mental health act after attempting suicide. She was spotted climbing the railings on a footbridge that crossed a busy motorway and pulled to safety by a member of the public. After six weeks in hospital, social services are looking for a short-term placement so she can be kept safe while family therapy takes place. Harley has a family - a widowed mother and an older sister, Milly, who left home with her long-term boyfriend just over a year ago. There is no prospect of Harley going home just yet, though, as her mum, who has learning difficulties and addiction issues, feels she cannot cope. So she arrives with Casey and Mike under a 28-day care order. As Harley tries to hurl herself out of the moving car on the way home, it quickly becomes clear she is in urgent need of help. Three weeks into the placement, after Harley has made various attempts to abscond, it seems like zero progress is being made. Then all of sudden there is an unexpected breakthrough and light at the end of a long, dark tunnel, but only once Harley is finally able to share the truth about the abuse she suffered at the hands of a very dangerous man.

Dr. Ross Greene, a distinguished clinician and pioneer in the treatment of kids with social, emotional, and behavioral challenges, has worked with thousands of explosive children, and he has good news: these kids aren't attentionseeking, manipulative, or unmotivated, and their parents aren't passive, permissive disciplinarians. Rather, explosive kids are lacking some crucial skills in the domains of flexibility/adaptability, frustration tolerance, and problem solving, and they require a different approach to parenting. The Explosive Child is the highly acclaimed, lifechanging parenting guide in which Dr. Greene first delineated the Collaborative Problem Solving approach. Dr. Greene explains why kids exhibit challenging behaviors, why traditional behavior management strategies may not be effective for many kids, and how to use Plan B to solve problems collaboratively and teach your child the skills he or she is lacking. As the model has evolved over the years, so has The Explosive Child, and it is available here in an abridged and updated fourth edition narrated by Dr. Greene. Throughout this compassionate, insightful, and practical book, Dr. Greene provides a new conceptual framework for understanding their difficulties. He explains why traditional parenting and treatment often don't work with these children, and he describes what to do instead. Instead of relying on rewarding and punishing, Dr. Greene's Collaborative Problem Solving model promotes working with explosive children to solve the problems that precipitate explosive episodes, and teaching these kids the skills they lack.

In 1994, Driven to Distraction sparked a revolution in our understanding of attention deficit disorder. Now a second revolution is under way in the approach to ADD, and the news is great. Drug therapies, our understanding of the role of diet and exercise, even the way we define the disorder, all are changing radically. And doctors are realizing that millions of adults suffer from this condition, though the vast majority of them remain undiagnosed and untreated. In this new book, Drs. Edward M. Hallowell and John J. Ratey build on the breakthroughs of Driven to Distraction to offer a comprehensive and entirely up-to-date guide to living a successful life with ADD.

Uniquely Human is a groundbreaking book on autism by one of the world's leading experts, who portrays autism not as a tragic disability but as a unique way of being human. Autism is usually portrayed as a checklist of deficits, including difficulties interacting socially, problems in communicating, sensory challenges, and repetitive behavior patterns. This perspective leads to therapies focused on ridding individuals of "autistic" symptoms. Now Dr. Barry M. Prizant, an internationally renowned autism expert, offers a new and compelling paradigm: the most successful approaches to autism don't aim at fixing a person by eliminating symptoms but by seeking to understand the individual's experience and what underlies the behavior. In Uniquely Human, Dr. Prizant suggests a major shift in understanding autism: instead of classifying "autistic" behaviors as signs of pathology, he sees them as part of a range of strategies to cope with a world that feels chaotic and overwhelming. Rather than curb these behaviors, it's better to enhance abilities, build on strengths, and offer supports that will naturally lead to more desirable behavior and a better quality of life. In fact, argues Dr. Prizant, attempts to eliminate "autistic" behaviors may actually interfere with important developmental processes. While it never discounts the difficulties of living with autism, Uniquely Human offers inspiring stories and practical advice drawn from Dr. Prizant's four-decade career working in universities, schools, hospitals, and private practice. It conveys a deep respect for people with autism and the qualities that make them special. Filled with humanity and wisdom, Uniquely Human offers a compassionate and insightful perspective that parents, professionals, and family members will find uplifting and hopeful.

With the publication of The Highly Sensitive Person, Elaine Aron became the first person to identify the inborn trait of high sensitivity and to show how it affects the lives of those who possess it. Now, Aron shifts her focus to highly sensitive children. Rooted in Aron's years of experience as a psychotherapist and her original research on child temperament, The Highly Sensitive Child shows how HSCs are born deeply reflective, sensitive to the subtle, and easily overwhelmed.

In this pioneering work, parents will find helpful self-tests and case studies to help them understand their HSC along with thorough advice on parenting a highly sensitive child. With chapters addressing the needs of specific age groups, from newborns through teens, The Highly Sensitive Child delivers warmhearted, timely information for parents, teachers, and the sensitive children in their lives.

This is the first book of its kind that calls attention to an important fact: Parents can make a tremendous impact on their child through behavioral practices taught at home. Dr. Barbera has created a tool kit that any parent can use to help remediate - and in some cases eliminate - some symptoms of autism and other developmental delays in young children, even in as little as 15 minutes a day. Developmental delays and signs of autism usually show up before 18 months of age, yet children are often not diagnosed until they are four or five years old. In Turn Autism Around, Dr. Mary Barbera explains why parents can't afford to worry and wait in long lines for evaluations and treatment while not knowing how to help their children. She empowers parents, caregivers, and early intervention professionals to regain hope and take back control with simple strategies to dramatically improve outcomes for their children. Dr. Barbera has created a new approach to teaching kids with developmental delays that uses the science of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) married with a positive, child-friendly methodology that any parent can use - whether or not their child has delays - to learn to teach communication skills, socialization strategies, as well as tackle sleep, eating, potty training, and behavior challenges in a positive, effective, and lasting way. Turn Autism Around is the first book of its kind that calls attention to an important fact: Parents can make a tremendous impact on their child's development through behavioral practices taught at home, even in as little as 15 minutes a day. Her program shows these autism and developmental delays can be remediated, and in some cases, delays can be caught up altogether, if parents intervene while the child is young. This book is for parents of young children aged one-to-five years who are passionate about helping their child as well as learning how they can change the trajectory of their child's and family's life.

A practical system for those with ADHD to take back their personal power and embrace their unique talents for success in the modern world. Explains how those with ADHD grow up wounded by the negative labels and attitudes surrounding them and their diagnosis Shares simple and fast-acting techniques from neurolinguistic programming (NLP) to recalibrate painful memories into valuable learning experiences, repattern learned behaviors and negative habits, and discover personal motivation Reveals how the novelty-seeking behaviors of those with ADHD are valuable assets to society and should be embraced rather than suppressed One of the first rules of child-rearing is condemn the behavior, not the child. Yet this commonsense rule doesnt seem to apply in the case of attention deficit disorder, or ADHD, where the very name of the condition implies that those labeled with it are disordered, deficient, and incapable of paying attention. Those with ADHD grow up wounded, told by teachers, guidance counselors, even parents that they are dysfunctional and unable to succeed in the normal world. But, as ADHD expert Thom Hartmann explains, those with ADHD are capable of great success if they can shift the negative self-image created by others and learn to work with their unique strengths. In this accessible guide for adults with ADHD and the parents and teachers of ADHD children, Hartmann offers a practical system of useful tools and strategies to heal the damage done to a person who grew up labeled as dysfunctional and help them cope with - and succeed at - daily life. He explains how the character traits of ADHD were once valuable assets in hunter-gatherer societies and that the later dominance of agricultural and industrial societies, where farmer and worker skill sets excel, left ADHD hunters as behavioral outcasts. Sharing simple and often fast-acting techniques from neurolinguistic programming (NLP), Hartmann explains how those with ADHD can take back their personal power, recalibrate painful memories into valuable learning experiences, shed fears and negative habits, and rebuild their self-image in a positive way. By integrating the strategies in this audiobook into daily life, those with ADHD can transform their way of responding to the world, discover personal motivation, and teach their children to do the same. As Hartmann reveals, it is not ADHD that needs to be healed, but our attitudes toward those born with the hunter gift.

Upon becoming a new mother, Eula Biss addresses a chronic condition of fear - fear of the government, the medical establishment, and what is in your child's air, food, mattress, medicine, and vaccines. She finds that you cannot immunize your child, or yourself, from the world. In this bold, fascinating book, Biss investigates the metaphors and myths surrounding our conception of immunity and its implications for the individual and the social body. As she hears more and more fears about vaccines, Biss researches what they mean for her own child, her immediate community, America, and the world, both historically and in the present moment. She extends a conversation with other mothers to meditations on Voltaire's Candide, Bram Stoker's Dracula, Rachel Carson's Silent Spring, Susan Sontag's AIDS and Its Metaphors, and beyond. On Immunity is a moving account of how we are all interconnected - our bodies and our fates.

There are three simple questions to determine whether you should listen to this book. Do you spend HOURS trying to get your baby to sleep? Do you dread the nap and evening routine, knowing what is to come? Would you like your baby to fall asleep quickly, on their own, and to sleep all night long...even if you honestly believe you've tried everything...and in as little as three days? If you answered YES to any of those questions then you need to listen to this book. This revolutionary method effortlessly trains your baby to resettle and quickly fall back to sleep if they wake (without your intervention). And the best part is your baby will now wake up well rested, happy, and healthy (and you will be, too!) I realize it may sound almost unbelievable that in as little as three days you can have your baby sleeping the moment their head hits the pillow, yet I promise you this is all possible. How do I know this method works so well? Because I used it myself to get my baby to fall asleep on cue each and every night. And listen, I understand it is easy to blame yourself for your baby's sleep issues, but you must realize, its NOT your fault. And it is actually easier than you could ever imagine to get your baby to quickly fall asleep, and sleep soundly through the night. What are some of the benefits can you expect when you follow this program? You will have more time to spend with your partner in the evenings while your little ones are quickly and quietly drifting off to sleep... You will have more energy and will be the envy of all other parents who are struggling with bedtime... You will be so happy and proud of your little one and of your abilities as a confident parent... You will never have to listen to the advice of in-laws and other parents again (no matter how well-meaning it is).

Apply the best science to all your parenting decisions with this essential A-Z guide for your biggest questions and concerns from the New York Times best-selling coauthor of The Whole-Brain Child and No-Drama Discipline. Every baby- and toddler-care decision sends parents scrambling to do the right thing and often down into the rabbit hole of conflicting advice. Dr. Tina Payne Bryson has sifted through the reliable research (including about all those old wives' tales) and will help you make a manageable molehill out of the mountain of information and answer more than 60 common concerns and dilemmas, including: Breast or bottle? Or breast and bottle? Will that cause nipple confusion? What's the latest recommendation for introducing solids in light of potential allergies? Should I sign us up for music and early-language classes? Whats the evidence for and against circumcision? When is the right time to wean my baby off her pacifier? How do I get this child to sleep through the night?

From renowned integrative physician Kenneth Bock, MD, comes a groundbreaking approach to understanding adolescent and teen mental health disorders. Over the past decade, the number of 12- to 17-year-olds suffering from mental health disorders has more than doubled. While adolescents and teens are notorious for mood swings and rebellion, parents today are navigating new terrain as their children are increasingly at risk of struggling with a mental health issue. But the question remains: What is causing this epidemic of illness? In Brain Inflamed, acclaimed integrative doctor Dr. Kenneth Bock shares a revolutionary new view of adolescent and teen mental health - one that suggests many of the mental disorders most common among this population (including depression, anxiety, and OCD) may share the same underlying mechanism: systemic inflammation. In this groundbreaking work, Dr. Bock explains the essential role of the immune system and the microbiome in mental health, detailing the ways in which imbalances in these systems - such as autoimmune conditions, thyroid disorders, or leaky gut syndrome - can generate neurological inflammation. While most conventional doctors assume that teens psychological struggles can be resolved only with therapy and psychotropic drugs, Dr. Bocks approach considers the whole-body health of his patients. In his integrative evaluations, he often uncovers triggers such as gluten sensitivity, adrenal dysfunction, Lyme disease, and post-strep infections - all of which create imbalances in the body that can generate psychological symptoms. Filled with incredible stories from Dr. Bocks more than 30 years as a practicing physician, Brain Inflamed explains the biological underpinnings of many common mental health issues and empowers the parents and family members of struggling teens with practical advice - and perhaps most importantly, hope for a brighter future. Supplemental enhancement PDF accompanies the audiobook. PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder at the age of eight, Dr Camilla Pang struggled to understand the world around her. Desperate for a solution, Camilla asked her mother if there was an instruction manual for humans that she could consult. But, without the blueprint to life she was hoping for, Camilla began to create her own. Now armed with a PhD in biochemistry, Camilla dismantles our obscure social customs and identifies what it really means to be human using her unique expertise and a language she knows best: science.
Through a set of scientific principles, this book examines life's everyday interactions including:
Decisions and the route we take to make them.
Conflict and how we can avoid it.
Relationships and how we establish them.
Etiquette and how we conform to it.
Explaining Humans is an original and incisive exploration of human nature and the strangeness of social norms, written from the outside looking in.

Learn to gain a stronger awareness of life and achieve more on a daily basis with the power of focus. We are often pushed like the wind from one task to the next and regularly lose our way in life. This can be all changed with simple adjustments and a change in habits. Learn to create daily goals How to achieve more Find an accountability partner and have public accountability Change your day and become a task master Protect your time How to Create Our Daily Goals You're busy. I'm busy. Everyone's busy. Yet despite this bustle, we regularly don't feel especially productive from day to day. Entire weeks can flash by in a blur of meaningless emails, conferences, and admin tasks while the massive stuff is going untended. As the 19th-century philosopher Henry David Thoreau wrote, "It isn't enough to be busy. So are the ants. The question is: What are we busy about?" If we want to take back control of our workday schedules and priorities, the simplest way to do it is by way of relentlessly wondering how we're spending our time. However, what questions ought we ask? The key here is control of attention. We're so distracted, and we're feeding that feeling on every occasion we switch between responsibilities. We need to (re)educate our attention. Focused interest can serve obligations - that's the left hemisphere at work, doing rational, deductive, logical, step-by-step questioning. The other sort of attention, which serves creativity, is where the right hemisphere is dominant. That calls for deeply quieting the thoughts. It was Betty Edwards (drawing on the proper aspect of the mind) who located that one powerful manner to prompt a shift from left to the right hemisphere is to copy an upside-down line drawing. Or to genuinely count to a certain number. But there are lots of approaches to activate the shift: take a walk in nature, go for a run, and concentrate on a classical tune...even take a bath. It's repetition that causes the shift. The more we teach any muscle - which includes the right hemisphere - the more potent and livelier it becomes. This all can be achieved here with the change of habit. You can very easily tap in to your power of great focus.

Does it constantly disturb your day, thinking that at any moment you might get a call from your child's school telling you that your child has intentionally caused damage again? Have the various strategies you have always used in an attempt to resolve the situation failed? Oppositional defiant disorder is a behavioural disorder that occurs in children of school or preschool age, and is characterised by anger, irritability, revenge, and aversion behaviour, that frequently manifests in your child for a period of at least six months. School teachers use basic methods; those learned at home or in their schools when they were pupils and students, and often find themselves able to do nothing but raise their voices, marginalize and give bad grades to children who are vulnerable to these types of issues. Instead of improving the situation and the lives of these children, they create a climate in which behaviour gets dramatically worse. In a social context, these children are marginalised, bullied and classified as "monsters", labels that do nothing but feed the vicious circle of poor behaviour, isolation and social stigma. If not resolved in time, these problems cause impairment in social adaptation and social functionality, increasing the risk of anxiety disorders, depressive disorders and leading to potentially serious consequences that could otherwise, with the right techniques, be avoided. In fact, more and more parents and educators are turning to methods proven by psychologists, methods based on specific cases, becoming experts and abandoning old methods that have perpetually proved to be ineffective. You are advised to listen to this book if, in the last six months, your child has been overwhelmed by: Anger - often manifesting itself in aggression, resentfulness, vindictiveness and spitefulness. Quarrelling with adults, an inability to comply with rules, a desire to provoke and irritate people. Habitually accusing others of their mistakes or poor behaviour, susceptibility to being easily provoked and irritated by others. What you need to do now: Listen to those who have encountered this problem and have experienced its dynamics. Avoid confrontation with other parents who do not empathise with this situation and who may offer negative advice, worsening your relationship with your child. Your son or daughter is not a monster. These children/teenagers often suffer terribly and sometimes express their discomfort in ways we do not understand. Listening to this book tomorrow will not magically solve all your child's problems, but I guarantee that if you listen and re-listen to each chapter carefully, absorb all the tips, and apply the techniques provided by this audio manual, then you will be well on the way to rebuilding a healthy relationship with your son or daughter, and increasing the chances of a brighter future for you both.

A sensory portrait of an autistic mind From childhood, Laura James knew she was different. She struggled to cope in a world that often made no sense to her, as though her brain had its own operating system. It wasn't until she reached her forties that she found out why: Suddenly and surprisingly, she was diagnosed with autism. With a touching and searing honesty, Laura challenges everything we think we know about what it means to be autistic. Married with four children and a successful journalist, Laura examines the ways in which autism has shaped her career, her approach to motherhood, and her closest relationships. Laura's upbeat, witty writing offers new insight into the day-to-day struggles of living with autism, as her extreme attention to sensory detail - a common aspect of her autism - is fascinating to observe through her eyes. As Laura grapples with defining her own identity, she also looks at the unique benefits neurodiversity can bring. Lyrical and lush, Odd Girl Out shows how being different doesn't mean being less, and proves that it is never too late for any of us to find our rightful place in the world.

An extraordinary memoir about the cutting-edge brain therapy that dramatically changed the life and mind of John Elder Robison, the New York Times best-selling author of Look Me in the Eye. Imagine spending the first 40 years of your life in darkness, blind to the emotions and social signals of other people. Then imagine that someone suddenly switches the lights on. John Elder Robison's best-selling memoir, Look Me in the Eye, is one of the most beloved accounts of life with autism. In Switched On, Robison shares the second part of his journey, pushing the boundaries of scientific discovery as he undergoes an experimental brain therapy known as TMS, or transcranial magnetic stimulation. TMS drastically changes Robison's life. After 40 years of feeling like a social misfit - either misreading other people's emotions or missing them completely and accepting this as his fate - Robison can suddenly sense a powerful range of emotion in others as a result of the treatments: "It was as if I'd been experiencing the world in black and white all my life, and suddenly I could see everything - and particularly other people - in brilliant, beautiful color." The ability to connect emotionally with others for the first time brings Robison a kind of joy he has never known. And yet, Robison's newfound insight has very real downsides. As the emotional ground shifts beneath his feet, he must find a way to move forward without losing sight of who he is, what he values, and all he has worked so hard for. Robison is our guinea pig and our guide, bravely leading us on an adventure that holds the key to new ways of understanding the mysteries of the human brain. In this real-life Flowers for Algernon, he grapples with a trade-off - the very real possibility that choosing to diminish his disability might also mean sacrificing his unique gifts and even some of his closest relationships. Switched On is a fascinating and intimate window into what it means to be neurologically different and what happens when the world as you know it is upended overnight.

When Rain Hurts is the story of one mothers quest to find a magical path of healing and forgiveness for her son, a boy so damaged by the double whammy of prenatal alcohol abuse and the stark rigors of Russian orphanage life that he was feral by the time of his adoption at age three. Bizarre behaviors, irrational thoughts, and dangerous preoccupations were the norm - no amount of love, it turns out, can untangle the effects of fetal alcohol syndrome. More people are coping with and caring for those affected by fetal alcohol spectrum disorders than individuals living with autism, but because there is a stigma associated with this preventable, devastating birth defect, it is a pandemic of disability and tragedy that remains underreported and underexplored. When Rain Hurts puts an unapologetic face to living and coping with this tragedy while doggedly searching for a more hopeful outcome for one beautiful, innocent, but damaged little boy.

Today's kids have adopted sedentary lifestyles filled with television, video games, and computer screens. But more and more, studies show that children need "rough and tumble" outdoor play in order to develop their sensory, motor, and executive functions. Disturbingly, a lack of movement has been shown to lead to a number of health and cognitive difficulties, such as attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), emotion regulation and sensory processing issues, and aggressiveness at school recess break. So, how can you ensure your child is fully engaging their body, mind, and all of their senses? Using the same philosophy that lies at the heart of her popular TimberNook program - that nature is the ultimate sensory experience, and that psychological and physical health improves for children when they spend time outside on a regular basis - author Angela J. Hanscom offers several strategies to help your child thrive, even if you live in an urban environment. With this book, you'll discover little things you can do anytime, anywhere to help your kids achieve the movement they need to be happy and healthy in mind, body, and spirit.

If you are a woman with attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), you've probably known - all your life - that you're different. As girls, we learn which behaviors, thinking, learning, and working styles are preferred, which are accepted and tolerated, and which are frowned upon. These preferences are communicated in innumerable ways-from media and books to our first-grade classroom to conversations with our classmates and parents. Over the course of a lifetime, women with ADHD learn through various channels that the way they think, work, speak, relate, and act does not match up with the preferred way of being in the world. In short, they learn that difference is bad. And, since these women know that they are different, they learn that they are bad. It's time for a change. A Radical Guide for Women with ADHD is the first guided workbook for women with ADHD designed to break the cycle of negative self-talk and shame-based narratives that stem from the common and limiting belief that brain differences are character flaws. In this unique guide, you'll find a groundbreaking approach that blends traditional ADHD treatment with contemporary treatment methods, such as acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), to help you untangle yourself from the beliefs that have kept you from reaching your potential in life.

Sleep is an essential part of life. The performance in every aspect of life is affected by the quality of sleep an individual has. This fact is more emphasized in children than in adults. And for most parents, the major challenge is getting their children to have an adequate amount of quality sleep per day. However, in reality, there many factors that contribute to parents being able to achieve quality sleep for both themselves and their children. Sleep is very important for the general development of babies, especially the brain, immunity and growth among other things.

Dyslexia is almost always assumed to be an obstacle. And for one in five people who are dyslexic, it can be. Yet for millions of successful dyslexics - including astrophysicists, mystery novelists, and entrepreneurs - their dyslexic differences are the key to their success. In this paradigm-shifting book, neurolearning experts Drs. Brock and Fernette Eide describe exciting new brain science revealing that dyslexic people have unique brain structure and organization. While the differences are responsible for certain challenges with literacy and reading, the dyslexic brain also gives a predisposition to important skills and special talents. While dyslexics typically struggle to decode the written word, they often also excel in areas such as mechanical reasoning (required for architects and surgeons); interconnected reasoning (artists and inventors); narrative reasoning (novelists and lawyers); and dynamic reasoning (scientists and business pioneers). With much-needed prescriptive advice for parents, educators, and dyslexics, The Dyslexic Advantage provides the first complete portrait of dyslexia. Supporting their claims with groundbreaking science and interviews with successful dyslexics and innovative teachers, the authors of this essential book show how the unique strengths of dyslexia can be captured for success at home, at school, and at work.

A New York Times Book Review Editors' Choice Kate Bowler's The Everything Happens Book Club Pick! Award-winning writer Heather Lanier's memoir about raising a child with a rare syndrome, defying the tyranny of normal, and embracing parenthood as a spiritual practice that breaks us open in the best of ways. Like many women of her generation, Heather Lanier did everything by the book when she was expecting her first child. She ate organic foods, recited affirmations, and drew up a birth plan for an unmedicated labor in the hopes that she could create a superbaby, an ultra-healthy human destined for a high-achieving future. But her daughter, Fiona, challenged all of Lanier's preconceptions. Born with an ultra-rare syndrome known as Wolf-Hirschhorn, Fiona received a daunting prognosis: She would experience significant developmental delays and might not reach her second birthday. Not only had Lanier failed to produce a superbaby, she now fiercely loved a child who the world would sometimes reject. The diagnosis obliterated Lanier's perfectionist tendencies, along with her most closely held beliefs about certainty, vulnerability, God, and love. With tiny bits of mozzarella cheese, a walker rolled to library story time, a talking iPad app, and a whole lot of pop and reggae, mother and daughter spend their days doing whatever it takes to give Fiona nourishment, movement, and language. They also confront society's attitudes toward disability and the often cruel assumptions made about Fiona's worth. Lanier realizes the biggest question is not, Will my daughter walk or talk? but, How can I best love my girl, just as she is? Loving Fiona opens Lanier up to new understandings of what it means to be human, what it takes to be a mother, and above all, the aching joy and wonder that come from embracing the unique life of her rare girl.

Brain Maker details the complex microbiome that lives in the human gut and how they affect the brain. Rising rates of Alzheimer's disease, mood disorders, attention deficit hyperactive disorder (ADHD), multiple sclerosis, autism, and other conditions are linked to imbalances in the thousands of microorganisms that colonize the gut, primarily bacteria. Disruptions to this microbiome can begin at birth for children born via cesarean section because these babies do not acquire their mother's microbiome traits from the birth canal. Instead they pick up less beneficial bacteria from exposure to skin. Then there is the ultra-clean, antibiotic-laden, high stress lifestyle and low-fiber diet of the United States and other wealthy nations. Finally, exposure to environmental toxins also leads to disruptions to the microbiome. This companion to Brain Maker includes: Overview of the book Important people Key takeaways Review of the book And much more!

An astounding new work by the author of The Mind Tree that offers a rare insight into the autistic mind and how it thinks, sees, and reacts to the world. When he was three years old, Tito was diagnosed as severely autistic, but his remarkable mother, Soma, determined that he would overcome the "problem" by teaching him to read and write. The result was that between the ages of eight and eleven he wrote stories and poems of exquisite beauty, which Dr. Oliver Sacks called "amazing and shocking". Their eloquence gave lie to all our assumptions about autism.... Here Tito goes even further and writes of how the autistic mind works, how it views the outside world and the "normal" people he deals with daily, how he tells his stories to the mirror and hears stories back, how sounds become colors, how beauty fills his mind and heart. With this work, Tito - whom Portia Iversen, co-founder of Cure Autism Now, has described as "a window into autism such as the world has never seen" - gives the world a beacon of hope. For if he can do it, why can't others?

Have you ever heard of hyperlexia or dyslexia? Do you think that you, your loved one, or your child suffers from dyslexia, autism, hyperlexia, Aspergers syndrome, Savant syndrome, Einstein syndrome, or other conditions of the brain? Any child or adult with a constellation of traits that can be diagnosed as a "syndrome" can be successful if they have the appropriate support. This book can help you get started on being able to tell whether you (or a loved one) has any of these traits, what to look for, and where to get more help. This book will help to teach you what these two conditions are and why every parent with a learning disabled or even a "gifted and talented" child should be aware of them. Knowing how to be able to tell these two disorders apart can help a parent determine whether their child will have a positive or negative outcome for the future. It can help a parent determine whether or not they should worry about their childs deficits and whether they should seek additional help and training for their child. There are even couples and parent-child relationships where one individual is dyslexic and the other person is hyperlexic. Often, a dyslexic child or adult will accuse others of "saying things the wrong way". They might speak in passive voice rather than speaking in active voice. They might also think that other people are being too direct or being abusive if they make a request to them in an "active" voice. A hyperlexic person or a neurotypical person might think that dyslexic people are speaking in passive aggressive language, whereas a dyslexic person might think that hyperlexic or neurotypicals are speaking too much "proper English". Each may find the other person's language and approach as abrasive or shifty without even realizing why! Download now to find out more.

An emotional, revealing memoir of one familys life in seclusion - and the love, strength, and faith it took to save it.
Seahawks star running back Curt Warner and his wife, Ana, were prominent figures in Seattle in the early 1990s. When they dropped from the public eye after Curts retirement, everyone assumed it was for a simpler life. But the reality behind their seclusion was a secret they hid from even their closest friends: their twins, Austin and Christian, had been diagnosed with severe autism. What followed was a painful struggle to hold their family and their marriage together in a home filled with chaos, emotional exhaustion, and constant fear for the safety of their unpredictable but beloved boys.
Now, after years of silence, the Warners share their inspiring journey from stardom and success to heartbreaking self-imposed isolation. Above all, its a story of the life-changing truth that love for family and each other - no matter how challenged - is the path to healing and peace.
The Warner Boys is the true story of a family who fought for their children and how they grew stronger against all odds.

This intimate memoir reveals the woman inside one of autisms most prominent figures, Jennifer O'Toole. At the age of 35, Jennifer was diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome, and for the first time in her life, things made sense. Now, she exposes the constant struggle between carefully crafted persona and authentic existence, editing the autism script with wit, candor, passion, and power. Her journey is one of reverse-self-discovery not only as an Aspie but - more importantly - as a thoroughly modern woman. Beyond being a memoir, Autism in Heels is a love letter to all women. Its a conversation starter, a game-changer, and a firsthand account of what it is to walk in Jennifer's shoes (especially those iconic red stilettos). Whether it's bad perms or body image, sexuality or self-esteem, Jennifer's journey is as much a human journey as one on the spectrum. Because autism looks a bit different in pink, most girls and women who fit the profile are not identified, facing years of avoidable anxiety, eating disorders, volatile relationships, self-harm, and stunted independence. Jennifer has been there, too. Autism in Heels takes that message mainstream. From her own struggles and self-discovery, she has built an empire of empowerment, inspiring women the world over to realize they aren't mistakes. They are misunderstood miracles.

What is autism: a devastating developmental condition, a lifelong disability, or a naturally occurring form of cognitive difference akin to certain forms of genius? In truth it is all of these things and more - and the future of our society depends on our understanding it. Following on from his groundbreaking article 'The Geek Syndrome', Wired reporter Steve Silberman unearths the secret history of autism, long suppressed by the same clinicians who became famous for discovering it, and finds surprising answers to the crucial question of why the number of diagnoses has soared in recent years. Going back to the earliest autism research and chronicling the brave and lonely journey of autistic people and their families through the decades, Silberman provides long-sought solutions to the autism puzzle while casting light on the growing movement of 'neurodiversity' and mapping out a path towards a more humane world for people with learning differences.

Increasing numbers of parents grapple with children who are acting out without obvious reason. Revved up and irritable, many of these children are diagnosed with ADHD, bipolar illness, autism, or other disorders, but don't respond well to treatment. They are then medicated, often with poor results and unwanted side effects. Based on emerging scientific research and extensive clinical experience, integrative child psychiatrist Dr. Victoria Dunckley has pioneered a four-week program to treat the frequent underlying cause, Electronic Screen Syndrome (ESS). Dr. Dunckley has found that everyday use of interactive screen devices - such as computers, video games, smartphones, and tablets - can easily overstimulate a child's nervous system, triggering a variety of stubborn symptoms. In contrast, she's discovered that a strict electronic fast single-handedly improves mood, focus, sleep, and behavior, regardless of the child's diagnosis. Offered now in this audiobook, this simple intervention can produce a life-changing shift in brain function - all without cost or medication. Dr. Dunckley provides hope for parents who feel that their child has been misdiagnosed or inappropriately medicated, by presenting an alternative explanation for their child's difficulties and a concrete plan for treating them.

In 1994, Peter Hotez's 19-month-old daughter, Rachel, was diagnosed with autism. Dr. Hotez, a pediatrician-scientist who develops vaccines for neglected tropical diseases affecting the world's poorest people, became troubled by the decades-long rise of the influential anti-vaccine community and their inescapable narrative around childhood vaccines and autism. The alleged link between the two was first espoused in a fraudulent scientific paper, long since retracted, but the story shows no signs of letting up. As a result, we've seen deadly and disabling outbreaks of vaccine-preventable diseases around the country, and Texas, where Hotez lives, is at particular risk. In Vaccines Did Not Cause Rachel's Autism, Hotez draws on his experiences as a pediatrician, vaccine scientist, and father of an autistic child. Outlining the arguments on both sides of the debate, he examines the science that refutes the concerns of the anti-vaccine movement, debunks current conspiracy theories alleging a cover-up by the CDC, and critiques the scientific community's failure to effectively communicate the facts about vaccines and autism to the general public, all while sharing his very personal story of raising a now-adult daughter with autism.

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, or ADHD, causes problems with physical activity levels, focusing on family and control of impulses. Even though some people prefer to believe that men and women who are overly active or cannot focus on family have behavioral issues that can be corrected with good discipline, studies show that ADHD is a real condition, possibly with genetic or environmental causes. The Center for Disease Control recognizes ADHD is one of the most common neurobehavioral disorders that are diagnosed in both adults and children. Though many adults often have difficulties sitting still or focusing on tasks, those with ADHD can lead to progressively more serious problems at work and at home. These are serious problems that can seriously affect your marriage. If you see any of these symptoms in your spouse or partner you need to pick up a copy of this book : The Effect ADHD Has On Marriage by Terence A. Williams that will help you not only understand your spouse better but alleviate a lot of the stress you are going through.

This audiobook is a go-to guide for parents and teachers, providing up-to-date knowledge in a simple, easy-to-listen-to format. It is filled with information your doctor would like to provide but is often unable to do so in the limited appointment times available.

Finally, a groundbreaking book that reveals what your dyslexic child is experiencing - and what you can do so that he or she will thrive. More than 30 million people in the United States are dyslexic - a brain-based genetic trait, often labeled as a "learning disability" or "learning difference", that makes interpreting text and reading difficult. Yet even though children with dyslexia may have trouble reading, they don't have any problems learning; dyslexia has nothing to do with a lack of intellect. While other books tell you what dyslexia is, this book tells you what to do. Dyslexics' innate skills, which may include verbal, social, spatial, kinesthetic, visual, mathematical, or musical abilities, are their unique key to acquiring knowledge. Figuring out where their individual strengths lie, and then harnessing these skills, offers an entrée into learning and excelling. And by keeping the focus on learning, not on standard reading the same way everyone else does, a child with dyslexia can and will develop the self-confidence to flourish in the classroom and beyond. After years of battling with a school system that did not understand his dyslexia and the shame that accompanied it, renowned activist and entrepreneur Ben Foss is not only open about his dyslexia, he is proud of it. In The Dyslexia Empowerment Plan he shares his personal triumphs and failures so that you can learn from his experiences, and provides a three-step approach for success: Identify your child's profile Help your child help himself Create community Packed with practical ideas and strategies dyslexic children need for excelling in school and in life, this empowering guide provides the framework for charting a future for your child that is bright with hope and unlimited potential.

Learning to See = Seeing to Learn: Vision, Learning & Behavior in Children is a book for parents, educators, and healthcare professionals about how undiagnosed visual processing issues can impact children in school. For students, it's more than just whether they can see the board. Children with learning challenges often are diagnosed with ADD and ADHD when it is the learning difficulties that trigger their behaviors. Training the "eye-teaming" problem will allow these otherwise bright and engaged students to read well and have a successful school experience. Most parents and educators know many of these children who end up with special plans to accommodate their reading problems (known as IEPs), but they are not aware that for many students, this problem can be solved. It will literally change the future of that child with great opportunities in school, careers, and self-esteem. Written principally by Dr. Patrick Quaid, the book explores his clinical and research insights into diagnosing and treating the condition. With him, it is even more personal - he was one of those kids. The book also includes chapters contributed by teachers, academics, and practitioners. While there are some later chapters that are a resource for practitioners or others with a deeper interest, the majority of the book is written to be accessible to the general public. Learning to See = Seeing to Learn is a book that will give millions of parents hope for their struggling children. It also will equip teachers and other health professionals with another set of tools to help children reach their full potential. If you or someone you know has a child who is struggling in school is on an IEP or is being put on medications for hyperactivity, ADD, or ADHD, this book is for you. It may just change a child's life.

This book breaks down the similarities and differences between autism fixations, obsessions, and special interests. Travis shares his opinions on how the fixations and obsessions battle against the special interest, and the negative against the positive. Travis feels he has greater control over his special interest than what he fixates on. Travis works hard to eliminate the negative fixations. Travis explains what makes a fixation unhealthy for him. He is constantly balancing healthy fixations with positive special interests. His goal is to make sure the positive special interests win out over the negative fixations. There are occasions where a fixation can be positive if someone is focused on a positive thing, but most of the time, fixations affect how intently you are focused on something and make the object of your focus become an unhealthy obsession. Travis tells the listener how to use mindfulness and cognitive behavior therapy to challenge the fixations that are unhealthy by redirecting thought processes to special interests that are healthy. Travis says it is all about learning how to use positive energy to focus your attention to avoid the negative energy of the fixation that forms in his brain. In this book Travis tells you all about special interests, obsessions, and fixations and teaches you how to interact with each of them. If you love someone with autism, this is a great book to hear to gain a better understanding of who a person with autism is and what their fixations, obsessions, and special interests mean to them.

Seeing Ezra is the soulful, beautifully written memoir of a mother's fierce love for her autistic son, and a poignant examination of what it means to be "normal". When Kerry Cohen's son Ezra turns one, a babysitter suggests he may be "different", setting her family on a path in which autism dominates their world. As he becomes a toddler and they navigate the often rigid and prescriptive world of therapy, Cohen is unsettled by the evaluations they undergo: At home, Ezra is playfully expressive, sharing profound, touching moments of connection and intimacy with his mother and other family members, but in therapy he is pathologized, prodded to behave in ways that undermine his unique expression of autism. It soon becomes clear that more is at stake than just Ezra's well-being; Cohen and her marriage are suffering as well. Ezra's differentness, and the strain of pursuing varied therapies, takes a toll on the family - Cohen's husband grows depressed and she pursues an affair - all as she tries to help others recognize and embrace Ezra's uniqueness rather than force him to behave outside his comfort level. It isn't until they abandon the expected, prescriptive notions about love, marriage, and individuality that they are able to come back together as two parents who fiercely love their little boy. Powerful and eye-opening, Seeing Ezra is an inspirational chronicle of a mother's struggle to protect her son from a system that seeks to compartmentalize and "fix" him, and of her journey toward accepting and valuing him for who he is - just as he is.

Sean's emotions controlled his social behavior. Baffled by social rules, isolated and friendless, he made up his own, and applied them to others. When they inevitably broke his rules, he felt worthless and unloved. Both Temple and Sean ultimately came to terms with the social world and found their places in it. Whether you are a person with autism, a caregiver in the autism community, or just someone interested in an outsider view of society, their powerful stories will enthrall and enlighten you.

Have you ever felt overwhelmed by a sensual experience? Imagine magnifying that times 100. That is reality for many on the autism spectrum. This book talks about how people with autism balance sensory input issues with socializing and following unwritten social rules in the real world. The author examines how people with autism have physical and emotional sensory experiences throughout their life. Travis explains how physical sensations interfere with his ability to process social situations. He wonders if autism is not more of a sensory disorder than it is a social disorder. Is it possible that sensory experiences interfere with the ability to conceptualize and interpret social situations? You will learn the author's opinion on this subject as well as begin to learn how he balances sensory input issues with following the unwritten social rules of the world. Travis explains how he feels overwhelmed sensory wise by other people's emotions. He feels other people's emotions sometimes more than his own. This can cause him to overreact in responding to the emotions of his friends. Sometimes Travis' response to comfort someone is over the top to them because he is experiencing their emotion more magnified or dramatic than they are. Emotions are all about context. Emotions are also a spectrum, just like autism. There can be high-functioning and low-functioning emotions. It is important to understand the context of each emotion. Another person must match the context of your emotional response and then match that context with your social response. Travis tells how he tries to learn to match context functioning levels of his friends' emotions with his in this informative book. If someone with autism seems socially awkward, it may be that they are having a sensory input experience that is preventing them from being proper socially. Often the sensory overload shuts down the social part of the brain, preventing people with autism from accessing skills that they might have.

Andrew Wakefield reveals the inside story of desperate parents trying to help their autistic children, only to be labeled as abusers by social workers, medical professionals, and the courts. As the number of children diagnosed with autism spectrum disorders grows each year, new discoveries and controversies arise. Andrew Wakefield explores many of these in his thorough investigation of the recent trial case of the Arizona 5, which destroyed an Arizona family. Two parents, with five children on the spectrum, were accused of Münchausen syndrome by proxy - a rare form of child abuse - and were ganged up on by physicians, child protective services, and the courts, who alleged that the parents fabricated medical symptoms in all five children. However, Wakefield now presents ample evidence that was disregarded and which would have proven the parents innocence. Families affected by autism suffer great hardship and prejudice, particularly as they navigate the uncertain waters of diagnosis, treatment, and education. The shocking story of the Arizona 5 family delves into the tremendous challenges some parents have to face, especially if their views on how to treat the syndrome dont align with the medical worlds standards. Wakefield also includes numerous studies and research trials that support the controversial yet significant roles that vaccines and diet play in autism, factors many medical professionals wrongfully dismiss.

The slyly funny, sweetly moving memoir of an unconventional dads relationship with his equally offbeat son - complete with fast cars, tall tales, homemade explosives, and a whole lot of fun and trouble Misfit, truant, delinquent. John Robison was never a model child, and he wasnt a model dad either. Diagnosed with Aspergers syndrome at the age of 40, he approached fatherhood as a series of logic puzzles and practical jokes. When his son, Cubby, asked, Where did I come from? John said hed bought him at the Kid Store and that the salesman had cheated him by promising Cubby would do all chores. He read electrical engineering manuals to Cubby at bedtime. He told Cubby that wizards turned children into stone when they misbehaved. Still, John got the basics right. He made sure Cubby never drank diesel fuel at the automobile repair shop he owns. And he gave him a life of adventure: By the time Cubby was 10, hed steered a Coast Guard cutter, driven a freight locomotive, and run an antique Rolls Royce into a fence. The one thing John couldnt figure out was what to do when school authorities decided that Cubby was dumb and stubborn - the very same thing he had been told as a child. Did Cubby have Aspergers too? The answer was unclear. One thing was clear, though: By the time he turned 17, Cubby had become a brilliant chemist - smart enough to make military-grade explosives and bring state and federal agents calling. Afterward, with Cubby facing up to 60 years in prison, both father and son were forced to take stock of their lives, finally coming to terms with being on the spectrum as both a challenge and a unique gift. By turns tender, suspenseful, and hilarious, this is more than just the story of raising Cubby. Its the story of a father and son who grow up together.

The author of the New York Times best-selling Look Me in the Eye returns to help Aspergians, and even ordinary geeks, embrace being different and fix the things that hold them back in life. With his usual honesty, dry wit, and unapologetic eccentricity, John Robison argues that Asperger's is about difference, not disability. In this book he offers stories from his own life and from the lives of other Aspergians to give the listener a window into the Aspergian mind. Equally important, he offers practical advice - to Aspergians, their parents, and educators - on how Asperians can improve the weak communication and social skills that keep them from taking full advantage of, or even recognizing, their often remarkable gifts.

Gold Medal Winner in the Sexuality/Relationships Category of the 2011 IPPY Awards Honorary Mention in the 2010 BOTYA Awards Women's Issues Category Girls with Asperger's syndrome are less frequently diagnosed than boys, and even once symptoms have been recognised, help is often not readily available.

Being the parent of a smart child is great - until your son or daughter starts asking whether global warming is real, if you are going to die, and what will happen if they don't get into college. Kids who are advanced intellectually often let their imaginations run wild and experience fears beyond their years. So what can you do to help? In Why Smart Kids Worry, Allison Edwards guides you through the mental and emotional process of where your child's fears come from and why they are so hard to move past. Edwards focuses on how to parent a child who is both smart and anxious and brings her years of experience as a therapist to give you the answers to questions such as: How do smart kids think differently? Should I let my child watch the nightly news on TV? How do I answer questions about terrorists, hurricanes, and other scary subjects? Edwards's 15 specially designed tools for helping smart kids manage their fears will help you and your child work together to help him or her to become more relaxed and worry-free.

At the age of two, Carly Fleischmann was diagnosed with severe autism and an oral motor condition that prevented her from speaking. Doctors predicted that she would never intellectually develop beyond the abilities of a small child. Although she made some progress after years of intensive behavioral and communication therapy, Carly remained largely unreachable. Then, at age 10, Carly had a breakthrough. While sitting in her kitchen with her devoted therapist, Howie, Carly reached over to the laptop and typed "MEAN", referring to Howie's efforts to get her to do her work for the day. She then went on to further explain her recalcitrant mood by typing "TEETH HURT", much to Howie's astonishment. This was the beginning of Carly's journey toward self-realization. Although Carly still struggles with all the symptoms of autism, which she describes with uncanny accuracy and detail, she now has regular, witty, and profound conversations on the computer with her family, her therapists, and the thousands of people who follow her via her blog and on Facebook and Twitter. A 2009 segment on 20/20 brought her story to national attention, and she has since appeared on television with Larry King, Ellen DeGeneres, and Holly Robinson Peete, all of whom have developed warm relationships with her. In Carly's Voice, her father, Arthur Fleischmann, blends Carly's own words with his story of getting to know his remarkable daughter. One of the first books to explore firsthand the challenges of living with autism, it brings listeners inside a once-secret world in the company of an inspiring young woman who has found her voice and her mission.

How can applied behavior analysis improve social and learning skills? It is a systematic manipulation of behavioral concepts to change behavior at any moment during a child's day. Many ABA methods require teaching, which is driven in a highly structured manner by parents, while others use the innate desires of the learner to obey his or her initiations. In the sense of current operations, certain methods teach skills. Both abilities are broken down into small steps or parts, and many regular chances are given for learners to acquire and exercise skills in a variety of settings with ample positive reinforcement. Cognitive behavioral training is used to teach children with ASD to control and regulate their own actions by modifying their attitudes, self-understanding, and values, based on the assumption that improvements are most likely to occur whenever a person becomes actively involved in their own behavior. Neurofeedback includes tracking brain activity while a person engages with computer programs created specifically to facilitate focus or other skills. Sleep therapies educate parents and children in strategies for dealing with challenging sleep patterns typical in children with ASD and for developing schedules for sleep. Throughout comparison to the ABA, ABA-based, and EIBI strategies mentioned previously, all such therapeutic techniques are used. In this audiobook, you'll learn: What is autism and how it can be handled with applied behavioral analysis (ABA) How behavioral analysis can be used with autism How to link operant behaviors with ABA How to analyze behavioral change and pay attention to even the slightest changes How to use procedures basic reinforcement to increase a behavior Psychologists have discovered a lot of things regarding human behavior, but not all of the expertise we have acquired can be used to change people's way of thinking and working in their daily lives. In this way, the area of applied behavior analysis is distinctive, having developed a rich and varied set of approaches based on established learning concepts that have been successfully implemented to change the actions of individuals. Behavior modification methods have been effective in nearly all fields of counseling and in a broad variety of settings.

A look at how to overcome common difficulties and maintain a loving relationship with an AS partner. Although having Asperger syndrome (AS) can make romantic relations difficult, having a fulfilling relationship with an Asperger man is certainly not impossible. A woman in love with a man with AS may interpret his difficulties with communication and socialisation as a lack of interest in the relationship. He may vacillate between being gentle and caring to seeming cold and distant. She may find his behaviour hard to understand, resulting in feelings of loneliness, isolation and confusion. This book shows how to overcome these difficulties and maintain a loving relationship with an AS partner. From an unwillingness to show affection in public or even sleep in the same bed to problems holding down a job, this book looks at 22 common traits that women may discover when they are dating, living with or married to a man with Asperger's syndrome. Rudy Simone explores the complications of Asperger's relationships with honesty and understanding, drawing on research and personal experience to inform and advise women with AS partners. She offers helpful tips for improving the relationship and finding fulfilment both individually and as a couple. This book will help women to understand the male Asperger's mind and, equally, it can help men with AS to see things from their partner's perspective. It will also be of interest to counsellors working with couples where the male partner has Asperger's syndrome.

Youth with attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) may engage in sub-optimal health behaviors including high levels of screen time, low physical activity participation, and consumption of poor diets. These are independent risk factors for adverse health outcomes, and health-related behavior patterns established in childhood can track into adulthood. Thus, identifying and addressing dietary and physical activity habits in sub-populations of youth have important implications for health over the lifespan. In this audiobook we found that the diagnosis of ADHD and/or its symptoms are associated with less-than-recommended levels of screen time and poor diet quality, though youth in general were found to be engaging in suboptimal sedentary, physical activity, and dietary behaviors.

A memoir by an adult with PDA, reflecting back on his early childhood through to present day. Diagnosed with Pathological Demand Avoidance (PDA) in his teenage years, Harry Thompson looks back with wit and humour at the ups and downs of family and romantic relationships, school, work and mental health, as well as his teenage struggle with drugs and alcohol. By embracing neurodiversity and emphasising that autistic people are not flawed human beings, Thompson demonstrates that some merely need to take the 'scenic route' in order to flourish and reach their full potential. The memoir brings to life Harry's past experiences and feelings, from his torrid time at school to the peaceful and meaningful moments when he is alone with a book, writing or creating YouTube videos. Eloquent and insightful, The PDA Paradox will bring listeners to shock, laughter and tears through its overwhelming honesty. It is a turbulent memoir, but it ends with hope and a positive outlook to the future.

Over the last four decades, American hospitals have seen a steady increase in children suffering from psychological disorders, peer violence, and suicide attempts. To figure out why this is happening and how to put an end to it, child psychologist Dr. Charlotte Peterson has been spending six months every five years living in indigenous villages and observing their parenting practices. What she's found is that the people of peaceful cultures, particularly the Tibetan, Bhutanese, and Balinese people, know something we Westerners, despite our modernity, don't, and their children are happier, healthier, and more balanced because of it. What Dr. Peterson has found is that the children in these cultures are raised with a high degree of cherishing and empathy. Attachments are promoted by intensive nurturing of infants and gentle, clear limit-setting with toddlers that teaches self-control and builds self-esteem. The result, as Dr. Peterson has found after visiting these places again and again, is children who are trusting, enjoyable, and kind, - not "spoiled", as we might imagine. The Mindful Parent brings together Dr. Peterson's village interviews, observations, research, and over 35 years of work as a psychologist to teach modern parents how to raise healthier, more well-balanced, and kinder children. It includes creative ideas from parents who are currently adopting these practices and balancing other aspects of their personal, career, and financial responsibilities to assure their children get the support they need to thrive.

At some point in nearly every marriage, a wife finds herself asking, "What is wrong with my husband?!" In David Finch's case, this turns out to be an apt question. Five years after he married Kristen, the love of his life, they learn that he has Asperger syndrome. The diagnosis explains David's ever-growing list of quirks and compulsions, his lifelong propensity to quack and otherwise melt down in social exchanges, and his clinical strength inflexibility. But it doesn't make him any easier to live with. Determined to change, David sets out to understand Asperger syndrome and learn to be a better husband - no easy task for a guy whose inability to express himself rivals his two-year-old daughter's, who thinks his responsibility for laundry extends no further than throwing things in (or at) the hamper, and whose autism spectrum condition makes seeing his wife's point of view a near impossibility. Nevertheless, David devotes himself to improving his marriage with an endearing, yet hilarious, zeal that involves excessive note-taking, performance reviews, and most of all, The Journal of Best Practices: a collection of hundreds of maxims and hard-won epiphanies that result from self-reflection, both comic and painful. They include "Don't change the radio station when she's singing along", "Apologies do not count when you shout them", and "Be her friend, first and always". Guided by The Journal of Best Practices, David transforms himself over the course of two years from the world's most trying husband to the husband who tries the hardest - the husband he'd always meant to be. Filled with humor and surprising wisdom, The Journal of Best Practices is a candid story of ruthless self-improvement, a unique window into living with an autism spectrum condition, and proof that a true heart can conquer all.

Travis shares his mind as an adult with autism on how ABA therapy helps him learn new and improved social skills and behaviors. Travis explains ABA and how it works from the autistic perspective. While many adults think ABA is bad, Travis loves it. Travis talks advanced ABA with contingencies and generalizations and shows examples of how complex teaching social skills and behaviors becomes the higher functioning the skill or behavior you are trying to teach is. Travis shares how he tries to train himself about different contingencies that can get in the way of his new behaviors and how he works hard to understand ways for him to generalize his new skill or behavior across different social contexts and environments. Travis shares how he feels his mental illness is compounded by the fact that there are not social interventions in his treatment plan like ABA therapy. Travis feels he hears voices that ask him to punish himself and hurt himself at times because he has poor social skills. ABA therapy can be used to help Travis and thousands of others like him on the spectrum advance their social skills and improve their social behaviors.

The first new book from beloved therapist and writer Torey Hayden in almost 15 years - an inspiring, uplifting tale of a troubled child and the remarkable woman who made a difference. In a forgotten corner of Wales, a young girl languishes in a home for troubled children. Abandoned by her parents because of her violent streak, Jessie - at the age of 10 - is at risk of becoming just another lost soul in the foster system. Precocious and bold, Jessie is convinced she is possessed by the devil and utterly unprepared for the arrival of therapist Torey Hayden. Armed with patience, compassion, and unconditional love, Hayden begins working with Jessie once a week. But when Jessie makes a stunning accusation against one of Haydens colleagues - a man Hayden implicitly trusts - Haydens work doubles: Now she must not only get to the root of Jessies troubles, but also find out if what the girl alleges is true. A moving, compelling, and inspiring account, Lost Child is a powerful testament once again of Torey Haydens extraordinary ability to reach children who many have given up on - and a reminder of how patience and love can ultimately prevail.

"How do I want to die? Oh, I don't know. How about a pillow over my face? It will probably be a family member." Thus illustrates the biting candor of Amanda Bailey, the youngest in this poignant, funny, painfully honest story of bitterly divided family. With their father on his deathbed, eight siblings engage in a feud over property and possessions. Born with Down syndrome, Amanda is pulled into a belligerent guardianship dispute. Her favorite sister, Nancy, is immersed in bankruptcy and foreclosure. Just when Nancy needs to support Amanda the most, she is at her most broken. In unexpected ways Amanda lifts her up as no one else can. Set in Michigan's remote and economically depressed Upper Peninsula, The North Side of Down examines some important questions about society, illustrating the paralyzing legal position of people with disabilities and the stigma of the homeless. It shows how two sisters' love for each other transcends loss, grief, and upheaval within a hopelessly dysfunctional family. In the midst of chaos, it is the misfits who manage to shine.

Incapaci di comunicare con gli altri e di sviluppare nuove amicizie, costretti a muoversi in un mondo sociale che appare loro privo di significato e di interesse o addirittura minaccioso e ostile: sono i bambini colpiti dall'autismo, un disturbo dello sviluppo neuropsicologico che si manifesta prima dei tre anni e permane in età adulta, ma che può essere notevolmente attenuato con opportuni programmi di intervento educativo. Uno dei maggiori esperti del problema schiude la porta di questa condizione della mente umana spiegandoci che cos'è l'autismo, dalle sue possibili cause biologiche alla diagnosi, ai processi cognitivi e comunicativi che lo caratterizzano; dedica infine una parte importante del volume ai programmi di intervento che, per essere efficaci, devono garantire una stretta collaborazione tra genitori, insegnanti e operatori dei servizi sanitari.

When children are late in hitting developmental milestones, parents worry. And no delay causes more parental anxiety than late talking, which is associated in many parents' minds with such serious conditions as autism and severe intellectual disability. In fact, as children's speech expert Stephen Camarata points out in this enlightening book, children are late in beginning to talk for a wide variety of reasons. For some children, late talking may be a symptom of other, more serious problems; for many others, however, it may simply be a stage with no long-term complications. Camarata describes in accessible language what science knows about the characteristics and causes of late talking. He explains that today's greater awareness of autism, as well as the expanded definition of autism as a "spectrum" of symptoms, has increased the chances that a late-talking child will be diagnosed - or misdiagnosed - with autism. But, he reminds us, late talking is only one of a constellation of autism symptoms. Although all autistic children are late talkers, not all late-talking children are autistic. Camarata draws on more than 25 years of professional experience diagnosing and treating late talkers - and on his personal experience of being a late talker himself and having a late-talking son. Camarata offers parents valuable guidance on seeking treatment, advising them to get second and third opinions if necessary and warning them against false diagnoses, unqualified practitioners, and ineffective therapies. He provides information that will help parents navigate the maze of doctors, speech therapists, early childhood services, and special education; and he describes the effect that late talking may have on children's post-talking learning styles.

Only 100 years ago, in even the world's wealthiest nations, children died in great numbers. Throughout history, culture has been shaped by these deaths; diaries and letters recorded them, and writers, such as Louisa May Alcott, W. E. B. Du Bois, and Eugene O'Neill, wrote about and mourned them. Not even the powerful and the wealthy could escape: of Abraham and Mary Lincoln's four children, only one survived to adulthood; and the first billionaire in history, John D. Rockefeller, lost his beloved grandson to scarlet fever. For children of the poor, immigrants, enslaved people, and their descendants, the chances of dying were far worse. The steady beating back of infant and child mortality is one of our greatest human achievements. Interweaving her own experiences as a medical student and doctor, Perri Klass pays tribute to groundbreaking women doctors, like Rebecca Lee Crumpler, Mary Putnam Jacobi, and Josephine Baker, and to the nurses, public health advocates, and scientists who brought new approaches and scientific ideas about sanitation and vaccination to families. These scientists, healers, reformers, and parents rewrote the human experience so that - for the first time in human memory - early death is now the exception rather than the rule, bringing about a fundamental transformation in society, culture, and family life.

Are parents and physicians too quick to prescribe medication to control our children's behavior? Are we using drugs to excuse inept parents who can't raise their children properly? Judith Warner sparked a national debate on how women and society view motherhood with her previous book Perfect Madness. We've Got Issues will generate the same kind of controversy, as she tackles a subject that's just as contentious and important. Warner cuts through the jargon and hysteria to delve into a topic that for millions of parents involves one of the most important decisions they'll ever make for their child: whether or not to put them on behavior-modifying medication. Insightful, compelling, and deeply moving, We've Got Issues is for parents, doctors, teachers, and anyone who cares about the welfare of today's children.

A groundbreaking medical memoir by one of our nation's leading pediatric surgeons - the visionary head of Children's National. Anyone who has seen a child recover from a wound or a broken bone knows that kids are made to heal. Their bodies are more resilient, more adaptive, and far more able to withstand acute stress than adults'. In this inspiring memoir, Dr. Kurt Newman draws from his long experience as a pediatric surgeon working at one of our nation's top children's hospitals to make the case that children are more than miniature adults. Through the story of his own career and the stories of the brave kids he has treated over the years - and their equally brave and tenacious parents - he reveals the revolution that is taking place in pediatric medicine. When he decided to become a pediatric surgeon, the field was in its infancy, struggling for esteem. Now, nearly 40 years later, it is at the forefront of exhilarating new discoveries in everything from cancer research to mental health care. But few parents know how to access the best care for their children. Far too many find themselves frustrated and afraid. Dr. Newman wrote this book to help guide parents - not just of sick kids but of all kids - and to share his knowledge of what children need to thrive. A deeply human story with a spectacular cast of young heroes and heroines, Healing Children will convince you that we still have a lot to learn from our kids.

A hilarious and heartrending account of one mother's journey to understand and reconnect with her high-spirited preteen son - a true story sure to beguile parents grappling with a child's bewildering behavior. Popular literature is filled with the stories of self-sacrificing mothers bravely tending to their challenging children. Katherine Ellison offers a different kind of tale. Shortly after Ellison, an award-winning investigative reporter, and her twelve-year-old son, Buzz, were both diagnosed with attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder, she found herself making such a hash of parenting that the two of them faced three alternatives: He'd go to boarding school; she'd go AWOL; or they'd make it their full-time job to work out their problems together. They decided to search for a solution while Ellison investigated what genuine relief, if any, might be found in the confusing array of goods sold by the modern mental health industry. The number of diagnoses for childhood attention and behavior issues is exploding, leaving parents and educators on a confusing chase to find the best kind of help for each child. Buzz, a pause-resistor of a memoir, brings much relief. It is immensely engaging, laugh-out-loud funny, and honest-and packed with helpful insights.

A remarkable memoir from the best-selling author of Friday Night Lights and Three Nights in August.
Buzz Bissingers twins were born three minutesand a worldapart. Gerry, the older one, is a graduate student at Penn, preparing to become a teacher. His brother Zach has spent his life attending special schools. Hell never drive a car, or kiss a girl, or live by himself. He is a savant, challenged by serious intellectual deficits but also blessed with rare talents: an astonishing memory, a dazzling knack for navigation, and a reflexive honesty that can make him both socially awkward and surprisingly wise.
Buzz realized that while he had always been an attentive father, he didnt really understand what it was like to be Zach. So one summer night Buzz and Zach hit the road to revisit all the places they have lived together during Zachs twenty-four years. Zach revels in his memories, and Buzz hopes this journey into their shared past will bring them closer and reveal to him the mysterious workings of his sons mind and heart. The trip also becomes Buzz's personal journey, yielding revelations about his own parents, the price of ambition, and its effect on his twins.
As father and son journey from Philadelphia to Los Angeles, they see the best and worst of America and each other. Ultimately, Buzz gains a new and uplifting wisdom, realizing that Zachs worldview has a sturdy logic of its own: a logic that deserves the greatest respect. And with the help of Zachs twin, Gerry, Buzz learns an even more vital lesson about Zach: character transcends intellect. We come to see Zach as he truly is: patient, fearless, perceptive, kinda man of excellent character.

In the years leading up to the 1950s, there were no resources for the challenged. They were placed in asylums or back rooms and left to die. They were never talked about or acknowledged. They were the silent children. The ones no one wanted. The ones who were never given a chance to live. Yvonne Mason has given us a story of success in a time of failure for the challenged. She has given a voice to a child born in 1952 who became challenged. This young man was not put away. He was not shunned and he was not ignored. Ms. Mason tells the story of Stan, her brother, who was never supposed to succeed. He was supposed to fail.

Welcome to the third volume of the Puzzled Parent series! This is by far the hardest book I've ever written. It covers all the topics that are really difficult to talk about. In this audiobook, I offer guidance on how to prepare a care plan for a dependent child, in the event of a primary caregivers passing, bullying, isolation, the seizure monster that often comes with having autism, and so much more. The first half of this book is heavy, I won't lie. It's raw and real, with nothing held back. The second half is lighter and more uplifting. This book is unique from my first two volumes because it revolves around the one thing that made me the strong fighter and advocate I am today: ice hockey. I have done my best to relate the sport to parenting/care-giving, which was really fun and definitely helped break down the heaviness of the whole. I hope this audiobook helps everyone who listens to it - may you be a parent, non-parent caregiver, therapist, aide, teacher, family, friend, or simply a person who wants to understand more - to help others in the community. God bless.

Autism is a subject that has always fascinated and intrigued me; a closed and impenetrable universe that, after years of research, traditional and modern approaches are allowing us to understand and treat therapeutically. I tried to understand what is hidden in the mysterious and particular world of the autistic child. I wanted, therefore, to deepen understanding of this particular condition. It is extremely difficult to establish contact with these children, but the therapeutic use of music can be a more direct form of communication when the possibility of using traditional linguistic codes is lost. Music therapy, as a technique for opening communication channels, thus becomes the ideal therapy to approach autistic children. Would you like to know more about autism? Would you like to know more about music therapy? In the last 20 years on the national scene, as already for some time abroad, art therapies are emerging with increasing importance, or at least diffusion, and in particular, music therapy which has now become a known and accredited practice. If we talk about music therapy today, we usually refer to an area of rehabilitation or treatment, which presupposes that we are in the sphere of discomfort.

Why is the peanut allergy an epidemic that only seems to be found in Western cultures? Over four million people in the United States alone are affected by peanut allergies, while there are no reported cases in India, a country where peanuts are the primary ingredient in many baby food products. Where did this allergy come from? And does medicine play any kind of role in the phenomenon? After her own child had an anaphylactic reaction to peanut butter, historian Heather Fraser decided to discover the answers to these questions. In The Peanut Allergy Epidemic, Fraser delves into the history of this allergy, trying to understand why it largely develops in children and studying its relationship with social, medical, political, and economic factors. In an international overview of the subject, she compares the epidemic in the United States to 16 other geographical locations, finding that in addition to the United States, in countries such as Canada, the UK, Australia, and Sweden there is a one in 50 chance that a child, especially a male, will develop a peanut allergy. Fraser also highlights alternative medicines and explores issues of vaccine safety and other food allergies, making her book a must-listen for every parent, teacher, and health professional.

We are living in one of the most stressful times in human history. This abundance of stress is impacting families and in many cases, manifesting itself in children with difficult and severe behaviors. Homes often turn into intense fighting grounds of power struggles and control battles parents find themselves in us against them scenarios with their children. Tension continually builds and before long, parents are feeling completely overwhelmed, powerless, and resentful of their children. As parents implement traditional parenting techniques, parenting in a way that most parenting books recommend, they find their situations becoming worse, not better as promised these resources.

"Zappel ist gestorbt" bringt Erklärungen über das Denken und Handeln von sensitiven Kindern und Erwachsenen die den Stempel Zappelphilipp, ADS, hyperaktiv, Legastheniker, Indigo, Hochbegabt, etc. bekommen haben. Keinem Kind und deren Eltern bleibt ein Auge trocken beim Lesen dieses Buches. "Unser Denken und Handeln kann man nicht erklären; trotzdem wollte ich mich mit diesem Buch von Herzen dieser herausfordernden Aufgabe stellen, um ein besseres gegenseitiges Verständnis zu ermöglichen."

Dass es der Schlaf des Babys in sich hat, merken frischgebackene Eltern schnell. Und schon geht es los: Braucht mein Kind ein Schlafprogramm, mehr Regelmäßigkeit, braucht es mehr dies, mehr das? Muss es ins eigene Bettchen oder darf es bei den Eltern unterschlüpfen? Dieser Ratgeber öffnet eine ganz neue Perspektive auf den Schlaf von Kindern. Das erfahrene Autorenteam räumt Mythen und Ängste rund um den Kinderschlaf von 0 bis 6 Jahren aus dem Weg und plädiert für eine entwicklungsgerechte, individuelle Wahrnehmung des Kindes - fernab von starren Regeln. Einfühlsam und auf Basis wissenschaftlicher Erkenntnisse und praktischer Hilfestellungen ermutigen die Autoren dazu, einen eigenen Weg zu suchen, um dem Baby das Schlafen sanft zu erleichtern.
