Synopsis

"...Child Decoded is nearly flawless in its readability, presentation and storytelling." -- Blue Ink Review    "Where's the Owner's Manual?!"

What parent hasn't wished for the manual that goes with her child? And children with complex behavior or learning issues can be even more confounding.The last twenty years have seen a huge increase, not only in children with learning and behavior problems, but in children with bewildering combinations of them. These combinations can defy categorization and resist treatment. Figuring these children out can feel like trying to decrypt anespecially complex code, without a cypher. Even professionals find it challenging.

Child Decoded presents a new kind of resource for a new kind of need. It provides parents with a broader understanding of the issues that may be affecting their children, as well as concise information on who can help and how.

In this book, you will find:

   * an extensive, unique checklist system to help you find your starting point
   * avenues of support you may not have considered
   * underlying factors that may be worsening your child's learning or behaviorproblems
   * common misdiagnoses
   * which practitioners do what, and what questions to ask of them
   * descriptions of both Western medicine and alternative medicine solutions

The experts who contributed to this book are passionate about helping parents understand the full range of options available to them. We now have more insight into the brain than ever before,more understanding of how different factors affect brain function, and more tools we can use to diagnose and treat.

She works with both children and adults who have learning or sensory issues, or mild traumatic head injuries.

In addition to her private practice, Dr. McE¬voy is an assistant professor at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center. Although evaluation is the heart of her work, Dr. McEvoy also loves the educational process - speaking to parents, schools, or other health professionals about learning, development, and parent¬ing in this new age where many learning and developmental challenges are more frequent. Marijke Jones is a copy and developmental editor. She has also published essays, mostly about her experiences raising, homeschool¬ing, and trying to figure out her twice exceptional son. Ms. Jones is passionate about help¬ing families with struggling children find answers and peace of mind. She believes that for each thing a child can't do, there is something amazing that he can do. A former therapist who specialized in trauma, she also believes that monitoring children's emotional and mental health is every bit as important as remediating their learning issues.
