9780060735227: Your Struggling Child: A Guide to Diagnosing, Understanding, and Advocating for Your Child with Learning, Behavior, or Emotional Problem

A practical, compassionate book every parent will turn to when they first recognize their child has a problem––but aren't sure what it is or where to seek help.

At this very moment, millions of children across the U.S. are falling behind in school, acting out impulsively at home, have few or no friends, suffer dramatic mood swings, and more. Their parents are frustrated and afraid, aware that something's wrong, but not sure where to turn for help or how to cope with their child's behavior. Is it a learning disorder, ADHD, Asperger's, anxiety disorder, or some combination? Are the child's moods and behaviors normal or abnormal? Will he or she outgrow them?

This book by a noted neuropsychologist explains the different and overlapping symptoms of learning, mood, and behavior disorders and guides parents in getting the right diagnosis and treatment. Dr. Newby shows how to observe and chart your child's behavior – a critical diagnostic tool for professionals, takes the mystery out of the evaluation and treatment process, and explains how to partner with professionals and your child's school to assist the child. This supportive guide will be every parent's first line of defense in helping a troubled child.

There are many individual books on individual problems, but no book showing parents how to define the problem to begin with. Also, many problems overlap significantly. This book helps parents address them all.

Takes the mystery out of evaluation and testing process, and informs parents so they can advocate for their child with health professionals and teachers.
