Dyslogic Syndrome

Why Millions of Kids are "Hyper," Attention-Disordered, Learning Disabled, Depressed, Aggressive, Defiant, or Violent - and What We Can Do About It

Jessica Kingsley Publishers

Dyslogical children are commonly labelled as having one or more of a mix of conditions that include Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder, Conduct Disorder, Bipolar Disorder and Oppositional Defiant Disorder. The number of children who could be described as dyslogical continues to rise sharply, and society has a tendency to lay the blame for this trend on poor parenting or bad schooling.

In this ground-breaking book, Bernard Rimland argues that such 'conventional wisdom' is not just mistaken but dangerous. Drawing on the latest research, Rimland outlines the impact of biological factors on today's children and exposes the influences of toxins and dietary deficiencies.

Dyslogic Syndrome is full of valuable advice on the safe, effective treatments that are available to children, and offers positive strategies for helping parents and professionals to do the best for their dyslogical child.

Dr Rimland's ideas are bold and controversial... if 'environmental upheaval' is far more serious than `social upheaval', as Rimland concludes, he is becoming the voice of the future in pointing to the coming directions of research.
