Challenging Kids, Challenged Teachers:Teaching Students with Tourette´s, Bipolar Disorder, Executive Dysfunction, OCD, ADHD, and More Leslie E. Packer, Sheryl K. Pruitt
Motoric and verbal tics (Tourette syndrome), compulsion syndromes and attention deficit syndromes often appear simultaneously in patients and nearly always lead to severe curtailments of daily life. Angela Scholz, herself the mother of a child with Tourette syndrome, as well as other affected persons describe the various symptoms of this neuropsychiatric disorder and how one can best deal with them on a daily basis. The search for assistance usually has to be coordinated by the afflicted themselves as experts rarely have a comprehensive solution to offer. That is why it is of utmost importance that the affected persons report on their experiences and the strategies they have developed to deal with their affliction.In addition, this volume offers a list of frequently asked questions on this chronic disorder along with the competent answers of experts in the field. This concerns problems met with at school, at work, in one s social environment and at home, dealing also with the use of drugs. This guarantees that information is available from both sides - from that of those affected and from the medical specialists - to ensure proper treatment and care for persons with Tourette syndrome and the accompanying symptoms.The book also has a glossary of technical terms as well as addresses for obtaining further information and help.
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.
