Product Overview

"What a valuable resource to help parents find their way through the bewildering vocabulary of psychiatric labels. Books like Alphabet Kids are essential if we are to bridge the gap between professionals and families."---Professor Simon Baron-Cohen, Director, Autism Research Centre, Cambridge University

"Weaving extensive research with personal empathy, Robbie Woliver provides parents and practitioners with an extremely useful resource, as we work to identify and improve the life of children with special needs."---Martin L. Kutscher, M.D., pediatric neurologist and author of Kids in the Syndrome Mix of ADHD, LD, Asperger's, Tourette's, Bipolar and More!

From ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder) to ZS (Zellweger Syndrome)---there are alphabet disorders for almost every medical condition, from those caused by rare genetic diseases to more common learning disabilities that may hinder a child's academic and social progress.

Alphabet Kids often have disorders that are concurrent, interconnected, or mistaken for one another, for example the frequently-seen combination of ASD, OCD, APD, SID, and ADD. If a doctor only diagnoses one condition, he or she may have missed others. As the rates of these disorders rise dramatically, Alphabet Kids explains it all.

This easy-to-read go-to guide will help parents and professionals sort through all the interconnected childhood developmental, neurobiological, and psychological disorders, and will serve as a roadmap for families as they make the journey towards correct diagnoses, effective treatment, and a better understanding of their Alphabet Kids.
