The One Stop Guide for Parents, Teachers, and Other Professionals

Jessica Kingsley Publishers
Kids in the Syndrome Mix is a concise 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. The second edition of this ground-breaking text has been fully updated and includes the new DSM-5 diagnostic categories, bringing it right up to date. 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.
Martin L. Kutscher is a pediatric neurologist who diagnoses neuropsychiatric disorders such as ADHD, learning difficulties, Asperger's Syndrome, and tic disorders and helps families affected by them.
