Overview

Misdiagnosis and Dual Diagnoses of Gifted Children and Adults: ADHD, Bipolar, OCD, Asperger's, Depression, and Other Disorders by James T. Webb, Edward R. Amend, Nadia E. Webb, Jean Goerss

Some of our brightest, most creative children and adults are being misdiagnosed with disorders such as ADHD, ODD, Bipolar, OCD, Autism, or Asperger’s. Many receive unneeded medication and inappropriate counseling as a result. This book includes discussions on diagnoses commonly given to gifted children and adults, characteristics of gifted children and adults, traits of diagnoses incorrectly given to gifted children and adults, guidelines to avoid mislabeling gifted children, parent-child relationship problems, issues for gifted adults, and advice for selecting a counselor or health care professional.
