From the Author
Although primarily written for the parents of children with learning/behavioural difficulties and educators, this book is a must for every parent and would-be parent. Why? Because it brings together a host of research to form a theory that is truly ground-breaking. This book will change your childs life. Is That My Child? explains why every human baby is born prematurely by months, how four months after birth a second-wave of brain cells develop and how if these cells under-function, learning and behavioural difficulties will result. This book also states boldly that dyslexia, dyspraxia, ADD, ADHD, OCD and Tourettes of childhood simply do not exist. That is, they do not exist in isolation as they are only symptoms of this underlying problem and are not conditions in their own right. The good news for every concerned parent is that the discovery of bpoptosis the name I have given to the development and maturation of the second-wave of brain cells means!
we now know what causes the symptoms and therefore can effectively treat any developmental delay.
From the Inside Flap
At least one child in five experiences some form of learning difficulty, but: learning difficulties as we understand them do not exist; they are not diseases just symptoms; these symptoms never appear alone; and they are treatable and avoidable. Dr Robin Pauc, an expert in child neurology, approaches learning difficulties, including Dyslexia, ADD, OCD, ADHD, Dyspraxia and Tourettes syndrome of childhood, from a truly ground-breaking perspective. All human babies are born prematurely and develop special new brain cells four months after birth. Every humans development in the womb and particularly in these early stages of life can, therefore, be affected by developmental delay, which can blight childhood and marginalize a child at school. Since our brains continue to grow, however, the symptoms can also be treated. Is That My Child? explains the background to human developmental delay and contains: advice on how to get the best assessment for your child and an explanation of what the examination must include; the effects good and bad of certain foods on the brain; exercises and computer programs that you can use to expand your childs neural function; and case histories of children on whom this plan has worked. In the single biggest breakthrough in the history of learning difficulties, Is That My Child? explains the cause of Developmental Delay Syndromes, uses simple, easy-to-follow tips to show you how to greatly reduce the risk of your child suffering, and gives advice on what can be done to treat those children that do.See all Product Description

this school provided but at the end of his first year there our son
was 36th out of 36 in his class.
We endeavoured - but the one change we did make was going to Robin
Pauc and following the exercises and the diet (to a lesser degree)
that he prescribed. That was THE change. Everything else was
constant. At the end of the next year our son was 10th out of 33 in
This works - these people reviewing it as quackery would do
better trying it.
I rate Robins methods very highly, but I would recommend children have a hearing test (qualified audiologist)and an eye test (by a qualified opthalmologist) who can double check convergence plus short/long sightedness as well.- Thats what the specialist SEN teachers recommend.
We follow Robin's diet together with Patrick Holford's recommendations and my little boy is very much improved.
We recently however, saw an NHS Peadiatrician after about 6 months of waiting and she told us she did not believe childrens behaviour was effected by their diet or nutrition. She did go on to say 2 of her own children were currently on medication for ADHD.
This is all about choice, yes it costs money, but for me I can safely say Robin was our 'Life Saver' and I thank him for that.
Remember however, Robin should help with children 'already diagnosed with' SEN by an Ed Pych (as his diagnosis is not recognised by LEA's) - yeah right where's that budget then in regular schools? The most I got from the Peadiatrician (lovely lady that she was) above, was a recommendation for a private Ed Pych at Aston Univercity - so much for free education and health care then huh?Read more ›
