A Guide for Parents and Professionals
Although children with mild neuro-developmental problems have been known to physicians for decades, they are increasingly coming to the attention of healthcare professionals and teachers. Careful assessment may identify features of neurological presentations such as ADHD, ASD, OCD, dyslexia or Tourette syndrome which may not warrant formal diagnosis, but will still seriously impair the child's daily function. Disorganized children are therefore an invisible and often overlooked group of young people. However, when parents and teachers implement innovative and creative strategies, these children and adolescents invariably flourish.This book explores the multi-disciplinary approaches, which can be managed psychologically or educationally. The combination of information, exercises and case studies makes it a valuable tool for parents, healthcare and teaching professionals, providing important insights and practical guidance.
