Kids in the Syndrome Mix of ADHD, LD, Autism Spectrum, Tourette´s, Anxiety, and More!:The one-stop guide for parents, teachers, and other professionals Jessica Kingsley Publishers. 2. Auflage Martin L. Kutscher
This book analyzes the rude and critical natures of Aspie and OCPD husbands. It is intended to be a support guide for the nonspectrum and neurotypical partners who marry these men. The book is not intended to be listened to by a person with Asperger´s syndrome or OCPD, as it puts names and labels to the abrasive and abusive behaviors that are typical with the brain wiring and genetics at the root of the spectrum disorders. Many people walk into marriage counseling with the same goal. They are living with people who have critical, negative, and grumpy natures. They feel that they are enslaved by these negative people in their lives. One partner´s personal growth is drastically hindered by the other partner´s sharp tongue, rude comments, and critical nature. If you aren´t married to one of these types, you have surely met them on the street or at work. They are the people with road rage who cannot control their outbursts. Shaking their fists angrily out the window, they are shouting obscenities as they drive by you. You might even wonder if they have Tourette´s syndrome. They are the rude people on the elevator who let the door slam in your face. They are the critical people in the restaurant who are too stingy to leave decent tips. These people are rigid and inflexible at work. They blatantly refuse to delegate work to others. They are the ones who are vying for promotions without ever doing enough to warrant getting them. They can´t participate in the small talk around the office water cooler, but they will complain to anyone who listens about how they were passed up in favor of coworkers. They complain loudly about how their bosses and their teammates must not like them. Believe it or not, some women are attracted to these abrasive types. You might be one of them. The strong and masculine person you can´t live without is sometimes your worst enemy. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Lori L. Parker.

Genetic Heavy Metal Toxicity:Explaining Sids, Autism, Tourette´s, Alzheimer´s and Other Epidemics Tara Lang Chapman
Education is a (neuro)biological process. Not paying attention to this fact can provoke challenging behavior. The key to success in school thus lies in internalizing the vantage point of the ´´malfunctioning´´ child.The author´s case histories begin from extreme preconditions: autism, trisomy 21, epilepsy, Tourette´s syndrome, etc. They intend to enable the reader to see presumed unalterable limitations as challenges and not to view neurobiological perceptions as boundaries. Educational optimism should always be possible with less momentous symptoms. (Neuro)biological boundaries serve not as insuperable obstacles, but as welcome challenges. This is a book for everyone wanting to avoid learning difficulties in children or to better understand their own role in education.
Executive functions are the cognitive skills that help us manage our lives and be successful. Children with weak executive skills, despite their best intentions, often do their homework but forget to turn it in, wait until the last minute to start a project, lose things, or have a room that looks like a dump! The good news is that parents can do a lot to support and train their children to manage these frustrating and stressful weaknesses. Late, Lost, and Unprepared is a must-have book for parents of children from primary school through high school who struggle with: - Impulse Control (taking turns, interrupting others, running off) - Cognitive Flexibility (adapting to new situations, transitions, handling frustrations) - Initiation (starting homework, chores, and major projects) - Working Memory (following directions, note-taking, reading and retaining info) - Planning & Organizing (completing and turning in homework, juggling schedules) - Self-monitoring (making careless errors, staying on topic, getting into trouble but not understanding why) Written by clinical psychologists, Late, Lost, and Unprepared emphasizes the need for a two-pronged approach to intervention: 1) helping the child to manage demands in the short run, and 2) building independent skills for long-term self-management. Full of encouragement and practical strategies, the bookâs organization--short chapters with overviews, summaries, case studies, tips, and definitions--makes it easy to grasp concepts quickly and get started. Part I, What You Need to Know, provides information about: what executive functions are and how weaknesses in these skills affect development; the impact of weak executive function on childrenâs emotional lives and their families; how professionals assess executive function problems; and associated conditions (AD/HD--children with an AD/HD diagnosis always have executive skills issues--learning disabilities, autism spectrum disorders, Tourette syndrome, etc.). Part II discusses What You Can Do About It including how to change behavior and set reasonable expectations, and offers specific intervention strategies for children of different ages, varying needs, and profiles. Late, Lost, and Unprepared is chockful of ideas for helping your child or student be productive and independent--today and in the future.
