a little trite and one major omission but on the right track
on 9 January 2003
This is a very interesting book giving a new insight as to why some children find it harder to learn than others.
I certainly could see my child in the examples he used and hope to try some of the exercise in the book to help him.
But on the negative side I found some of the examples used just a little too convienent ie: too good to be true, but my major problem with the book was that he failed to mention the use of essential fatty acid supplementation in ADHD children, even though he had a chapter on foods & additives etc.
The use of Essential FAtty Acid supplementaion originally introduced by Dr. Jacqueline Stordy, has been extensively researched by Oxford University in the UK and Purdue University in USA and found to be very effective in helping such children and for the author not to include such vital information is a glaring omission.
However I would recomend this book to other parents and teachers to read as it does contain some useful information, but to be mindful that there are other avenues to explore to help your children that are not included in this book.
