No One to Play With

Social problems of LD and ADD children

Betty Osman

In the backyard at home or the playground at school, LD/ADD youngsters are often cruelly snubbed in informal play groups. To see a child socially isolated or rejected hurts caring adults, partly, perhaps, because memories of their own painful childhood experiences are stirred up. While it is neither possible nor even desirable to alleviate all the pain inherent in growing up, obviously we can't merely sit back and watch the child suffer. The right kind of intervention can have an impact. Children's "social quotients" can be raised just as intelligence quotients can be improved when the learning environment changes for the better. Social skills, like academic subjects, must be learned and can be taught. This compassionate, practical, readable guide describes everyday social problems and situations and offers invaluable advice on how to deal with them effectively. Among topics covered are: getting along with other kids; handling the social aspects of school; group techniques; and adolescent difficulties.

Oppositional Defiant Disorder and Conduct Disorder in Childhood

Walter Matthys, John Lochman

For many years, the fields of Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD), Conduct Disorder (CD) and aggressive and antisocial behaviour, have been researched independently of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and hyperactive, impulsive and inattentive behaviour. In reality, they often occur simultaneously, and their separation has led to a hampering of our understanding of the two groups. However, the last decade has seen an integration of the research fields, essential for an accurate understanding of these disorders, and information on this topic has grown rapidly.
Focusing on children aged 3 to 14 years, this book offers a concise and comprehensive overview of empirical knowledge and associated clinical information on ODD and CD; it does so with respect to aetiology, assessment and treatment, and to neurobiological factors in these disorders. In reviewing the literature, the authors pay particular attention to recently published studies and meta-analyses, without neglecting older high quality studies.
Written as a guide for professionals, this book is useful as a succinct overview of the field for both students and researchers; it is also of value to advanced researchers, offering essential information on topics which may not be their primary focus of interest and expertise.

Ready, Set, Breathe

Practicing mindfulness with your children for fewer meltdowns and a more peaceful family

Carla Naumburg

Being a parent is stressful, and when your child has a meltdown, it can be difficult to keep cool, let alone help your child to calm down. This book shows you and your child how to focus and calm down and live in the present moment. It offers real solutions to help you both deal with stress using everyday mindfulness games, activities, rituals, and habits. Designed for children ages 3-10 years old, this book is fun, engaging, and effective. As any parent knows, children aren't always receptive to what you say. Parental advice is often ignored or perceived as intrusive; and trying to get your kid to calm down and breathe can turn into an unpleasant power struggle in which you feel powerless and frustrated; and your child can feel nagged or bullied. The good news is that it doesn't have to be this way. In this book, you'll learn to teach mindfulness to your child in the most enjoyable and realistic way possible. You'll also learn skills to help yourself stay calm when your child does act up-especially in public. This is a must-read for all parents!

Smart But Scattered

The Revolutionary "Executive Skills" Approach to Helping Kids Reach Their Potential

Peg Dawson , Richard Guare

Scientists who study child development have recently found that kids who are "smart but scattered" lack or lag behind in crucial executive skills—the core, brain-based habits of mind required to “execute” tasks like getting organized, staying focused, and controlling emotions.

Smart but Scattered provides ways to assess children’s strengths and weaknesses and offers guidance on day-to-day issues like following instructions in the classroom, doing homework, completing chores, reducing performance anxiety, and staying cool under pressure. Small steps add up to big improvements, enabling these kids to build the skills they need to live up to their full potential. More than 40 reproducibles are included.

A guide for parents and professionals (2ND ed.)

TEENAGERS WITH ADD and ADHD give parents insight on everything from understanding the diagnosis to treatment options, and from behavioral and academic issues, to parent involvement and self-advocacy
