From the Back Cover:

An essential tool for all physicians who work with children

Physicians want to know more about children with learning problems, and parents want paediatricians and family physicians to provide more help when their kids struggle in school. Children with School Problems: A Physician's Manual gives community-based physicians more precise information and tools to help them assess and manage children with learning disabilities and other challenges in school. The second edition contains updated and expanded content about intellectual disability, developmental coordination disorder, oppositional defiant disorder, and more, with many new references and web-based resources.

This comprehensive reference contains five sections:

  • Foundations: Presents pertinent background information for physicians seeing children with learning problems.
  • Diagnostics: Provides tools and approaches to obtain the necessary information to develop a diagnostic formulation and begin to synthesize a plan. A number of materials can be copied for clinical use, including questionnaires for parents and teachers, graded reading passages, and a specific teacher's questionnaire for the preschool age group.
  • Management: Provides information about the educational, behavioural, and medical management of children's learning problems.
  • Trajectories: Follows students through the teen years and into adulthood to help clinicians understand prognosis so that they can counsel families about these conditions, both initially and over the longer term.
  • Resources: Includes a series of illustrative cases, a worksheet to help physicians put together their own referral teams using local resources, and a detailed glossary.

Written and edited by Canada's leading experts in developmental and behavioural paediatrics, Children with School Problems is an invaluable resource.
