Book Description

The completely updated and expanded new edition of this well-established text incorporates DSM-5 changes as well as other new developments. The all-in-one guide covers the whole range of often co-existing neuro-behavioral disorders in children – from attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), obsessive-compulsive disorder, and anxiety, to autism spectrum disorders, nonverbal learning disabilities, Tourette's, sensory integration problems, and executive dysfunction.

A completely revised chapter on the autism spectrum by Tony Attwood explains not only new understanding in the field, but the new diagnostic criteria, and the anticipated usage of the term 'Asperger's Syndrome'. Dr. Kutscher provides accessible information on causes, symptoms, interactions with other conditions, and treatments. He presents effective behavioral strategies for responding to children who display traits of these disorders – whether at home, at school, or in other settings – along with case vignettes and practical tips. Finally, a chapter on the role of medications summarizes current knowledge.

The author's sympathetic yet upbeat approach and skillful explanations of the inner world of children in the syndrome mix make this an invaluable companion for parents, teachers, professionals, and anyone else who needs fast and to-the-point advice on children with special needs.

Review

This all-in-one guide covers the whole range of often co-existing neuro-behavioural disorders in children...Dr Kutscher provides accessible information on causes, symptoms, interactions with other conditions, and treatments... invaluable companion for parents, teachers, professionals, and anyone else who needs fast and to-the-point advice on children with special needs. Fragile X Association of Australia This is the first book anyone attempting to understand a child with these disorders should read. Dr. Kutscher takes complex medical information and transforms it into a reader friendly format for the non-professional. He has taken so much great information by so many renowned professionals in the field and combined it with his own understanding and empathy in a truly unique book. His examples are so true to life it brought back many memories. I only wish I had his list of tips and strategies 30 years ago when we started our journey with ADHD. I will be recommending this book to parents, educators and anyone else wishing to help these children lead happy and successful lives. -- Heidi Bernhardt, mother of three grown sons with ADHD and Founder, President and Executive Director of CADDAC (Centre for ADHD Awareness Canada) Kids in the Syndrome Mix offers parents and teachers much needed hope and guidance as they navigate the often overwhelming world of supporting kids with co-existing conditions. Dr. Kutscher offers a wealth of information from diagnostic criteria and treatment options to concrete behavioral strategies and practical tips for home and school. This powerful guide will certainly help sensory children get organized, and support parents and teachers so they can better connect with their children in a calm and positive way. -- Carolyn Dalgliesh, Founder of Systems for Sensory Kids LLC, parent of a child with special needs, and author of The Sensory Child Gets Organized: Proven Systems for Rigid, Anxious, or Distracted Kids Kids in the Syndrome Mix was an instant classic. It will now be a life raft for children's advocates trying to find their kids a fitting diagnosis that will secure services in accordance with the heavily revised DSM-5. That's great news, but the best news is this - Kutscher knows how to express the challenges of figuring out our wonderfully complex kids with neurobiological disorders, just as he knows how to calm our concerns and help us find realistic solutions to the myriad of issues that shadow our special children. This is a book for everyone interested in any area of child development. -- Liane Holliday Willey, EdD, author of Pretending to be Normal, Safety Skills for Asperger Women, Asperger Syndrome in Adolescence, and Asperger Syndrome in the Family It's difficult enough to write a book for professionals, parents or teachers providing them the information and insights germane to the subject investigated. To write a book for all three audiences in a language that reaches each audience without talking up or down to any is an art in itself. Marty Kutscher not only accomplishes this task extraordinarily well, but he covers a myriad of complex topics with such skill and economy relating in a few pages what would take another author a complete text to cover. The information, insights and pragmatic offerings in this book truly make it essential reading for anyone, parent, teacher or professional. -- Dr Paul D. Schwartz, Professor of Psychology and Director of the Center for Adolescent Research and Development, Mt St Mary College, NY, USA it is an excellent book for both trainees and seasoned professionals... The author advises on how to help parents and professionals to accommodate the child's diagnosis... There is a good advice (...) on understanding the child's mindset, combined with suggestions for beginning to change their behaviour, attending to problem-solving skills and dealing with angry and frustrated children... All trainings for counselling and psychotherapy with children should include this book on their book list. -- Joanna North, psychotherapist BACP Children & Young People

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting 21 July 2014
By Laura Smith VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
This is a useful book for anyone just starting out to learn about these syndromes. There is a lot of helpful information here, stuff I wish I had known ten years back. I like how it shows how some of these conditions can be interlinked, escpecially the links with anxiety. It's a useful guide to dealing with kids with these conditions and a great starting point. If you already have lived or worked with someone with one of these conditions for some time, however, you will have figured most of this out for yourself, though there are still some salient points to remember. A good book.

By Choose the Right - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I absolutely love this book! It has given so much peace and clarity as a mother of children in the syndrome mix and also as an educator.This book clearly gives specifics for accommodations for the child and peace for the care giver. It goes in to clear detail without being overwhelming. I would urge everyone to read this book even if be for the sake awareness of awareness alone!
