From the fourth-grade girl who never gets invited to a birthday party because classmates think she’s “weird” to the geek who is terrific at math but is failing every other subject, quirky children are different from other kids in ways that they–and their parents–have a hard time understanding. They present a host of challenges that standard parenting books fail to address. Now, in Quirky Kids, seasoned pediatricians Perri Klass and Eileen Costello provide the expert guidance that families with quirky children so desperately need.

Klass and Costello illuminate the confusing list of terms often applied to quirky children–from Asperger’s syndrome and nonverbal learning disability to obsessive-compulsive behavior and sensory integration dysfunction. The authors also discuss various therapy options, coping strategies, and available medications. Most of all, they will help quirky kids lead rich, fulfilling lives at home, at school, even on the playground.

From the Back Cover:

"This is a brave book. The two authors help parents face their quirky kids as they grow up. How to get help and how to get a diagnosis to share with the child. The practical advice about day to day living and how to keep your child feeling safe and important is just stellar! Every parent of a "quirky kid" needs this book."
-T. Berry Brazelton, M.D.

"A superb, original, hugely needed book. If you love a quirky child, teach a quirky child, coach a quirky child, know a quirky child, or were a quirky child, you should sing a hymn of praise to Drs. Klass and Costello for writing the first and the definitive guide to understanding these marvelous kids. Free of jargon, full of facts and wisdom and practical advice, free of fluff but full of love for children and families, this book provides both guidance and hope. Read this book, and rejoice in your quirky child! She or he has so much to give us all."
-Edward Hallowell, M.D., author of Childhood Roots of Adult Happiness

"As I read this wonderful and helpful book, I kept nodding in agreement: "Yes, this is right, this is good, very true!" Parents and pediatricians NEED this book. A+."
-Carol Stock Kranowitz, M.A., Author, The Out-of-Sync Child: Recognizing and Coping with Sensory Integration Dysfunction

"
A clearly written, practical, no-nonsense book for parents and professionals working and living with these children, Quirky Kids provides a guide through the maze of suspected causes and treatment approaches with which families are often confronted. This book is a gem.”
-Margaret L. Bauman, M.D., Associate Professor of Neurology, Harvard Medical School
