Additional Information


Disorganized children' may display a range of behaviours symptomatic of, for example, ADHD, autism and conduct disorders, but they often fail to meet all the criteria for a clear diagnosis.

In this book, psychiatrists, speech, family and occupational therapists and neurodevelopment specialists present a range of behavioural and psychological strategies to help disorganized children improve concentration and performance in the classroom and deal with a variety of behaviour and social interaction difficulties. The authors also provide information and interventions for dyslexia, dyspraxia, OCD and schizophrenia, among others.

The combination of information, exercises and case studies makes this a valuable tool for use by parents, health care and teaching professionals, and the authors provide an insight into the mind of disorganized children and practical guidance on how best to help them achieve their full potential.

There are chapters on cognitive functions; abstraction and symbolisation; theory of mind; attachment; and a wide range or disorders such as ADHD, autism, dyslexia, epilepsy, minimal brain dysfunction, obsessive compulsive disorders, schizophrenia, and tic and Tourette syndrome.' (The symptoms of these disorders are listed clearly for parents and professionals, with case studies.) There are also chapters on child psychiatry, clinical psychology, child psychotherapy, the classroom, family therapy, occupational and group therapy.
