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 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)

In this updated edition, Kutscher (pediatrics, neurology, New York Medical Coll.; Organizing the Disorganized Child), with contributions from Tony Attwood (psychology, Griffith Univ., Queensland, Australia; Asperger's Syndrome) and Robert R. Wolff (pediatrics, neurology, New York Medical Coll.), has provided a thorough guide for parents, teachers, and professionals working with children affected by one or more neurobehaviorial disorders in the mix discussed. Incorporating DSM-5 changes and other new developments, Kutscher's first two chapters focus on general principles of diagnosis and treatment. The author concentrates on the role that parents, teachers, and professionals play, first in recognizing the signs and then in appropriately identifying and treating the syndromes, specifically by being aware of the occurrence of more than one syndrome presenting. While understanding the frustration that parents and teachers often feel when living and working with these children, Kutscher also creates an awareness and empathy for the difficulty children face when dealing with their own symptoms. Chapters about each of the specific syndromes, symptoms, causes, treatments, and how they may appear together follow. VERDICT Awareness of these syndromes and how they interact and affect one another is invaluable to parents, teachers, and physicians. This new edition is important for libraries with developmental disability sections and parenting collections. (Library Journal, Starred Review)

This is the 2nd edition of an 'all-in-one guide' to a wide range of often co-existing special educational needs and disabilities. Written in an easy and accessible style, the author presents information on causes, symptoms, interaction with other conditions and treatments... It is (...) a handy guide for the lay-person or busy parent. The author transforms some of the more complex information and re-packages it into a reader-friendly format for parents/carers or busy professional. (Gareth D Morewood, Director of Curriculum Support at Priestnall School AuKids Magazine)

By Laura Smith VINE VOICE on 21 July 2014
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.
