Overview

"Kids in the Syndrome Mix is a concise, scientifically up-to-date, all-in-one guide to the whole range of often co-existing neuro-behavioral disorders in children - from attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), obsessive-compulsive disorder, and bipolar disorder to autistic spectrum disorders, nonverbal learning disabilities, sensory integration problems, and executive dysfunction." Dr. Kutscher provides accessible information on causes, symptoms, interactions with other conditions, and treatments. He presents effective behavioral strategies for responding to children who display traits of these disorders - whether at home, at school, or in other settings - along with case vignettes and practical tips.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
For 18 years, Kutscher (pediatrics & neurology, New York Medical Coll.) has been diagnosing often coexisting neuropsychiatric disorders like attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, autisic spectrum disorders, learning difficulties, and bipolar disorder. His accessible and comprehensive guide covers the general principles of diagnosis and treatment of those disorders in children; individual chapters on each condition elucidate causes, symptoms, interactions between conditions, and treatments. Parents and professionals alike will find the behavioral strategies, case vignettes, and practical tips particularly helpful. Those interested more in curricular modifications, useful equipment, and resources for children with similar needs should read Polly Edmonds's Understanding Sensory Dysfunction. As the first book to cover such a wide range of disorders for lay readers, this is highly recommended for public libraries with special-needs parenting sections.-Walter J.
