Kids in the Syndrome Mix: ADHD, LD, Autism Spectrum, Tourette's, Anxiety and More


Product Description

Published UK, 2014 (2nd edition)
Martin Kutscher has chosen eleven syndromes in his `mix`. Although there are excellent books on each of these topics, he argues, we need one book that covers multiple problems in a single place, because that`s the way so many kids come: multiple issues in a single child. Kutscher presents a brief, informal distillation of crux material: cause, symptoms and treatment of each problem. The first two chapters cover the general principles of diagnosis and treatment that apply to all conditions. At the end of the book there is a chapter on medication, a behavioural checklist, and further readings. The new edition has been completely updated and expanded, incorporating DSM-5 changes. The bulk of the text covers the syndromes:

#  Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
#  Specific Learning Disorders
#  Autistic Spectrum Disorder
#  Anxiety and Obsessive-Compulsive Disorders
#  Sensory Integration Dysfunction
#  Tics and Tourette`s
#  Depression
#  Bipolar Depression
#  Oppositional Defiant Disorder
#  Central Auditory Processing Disorders

Martin Kutscher is a paediatric neurologist in the USA with more than 25 years' experience of diagnosing neuropsychiatric disorders.
