ADHD Autism, Dyslexia and Dyspraxia (Understanding)
This book describes the four most common developmental disorders of childhood. The basic features of each disorder diagnosis, incidence and treatment strategies are covered separately.
However, during the last decade evidence has been accumulating which indicates that these particular disorders often occur in combination. Some child development specialists now believe that having two or more of these disorders together may be more common than just having a pure form of one of them.
Given that it is likely that they commonly occur together, all four disorders are covered in this single text. If you believe that a child known to you may show signs of one of these disorders, it may be helpful to read about all of them.
My daughter who has a mixture of these difficulties finds it very helpful especially in being able to explain to herself and others why she has to find another way to do or understand things. It confirms that she is not stupid or incompetent just different.
Good and simple to understand, a must read for those who are willing to understand their kids learning behaviour or themselves without having to judge or name calling.
Great book for our family we have a mixed bag of special needs so this covers them well, and it's easy to read which helps.
