An incredibly reassuring approach by two physicians who specialize in helping children overcome their difficulties in learning and succeeding in school

For parents, teachers, and other professionals seeking practical guidance about ways to help children with learning problems, this book provides a comprehensive look at learning differences ranging from dyslexia to dysgraphia, to attention problems, to giftedness. In The Mislabeled Child, the authors describe how a proper understanding of a child's unique brain-based strengths can be used to overcome many different obstacles to learning. They show how children are often mislabeled with diagnoses that are too broad (ADHD, for instance) or are simply inaccurate. They also explain why medications are often not the best ways to help children who are struggling to learn. The authors guide readers through the morass of commonly used labels and treatments, offering specific suggestions that can be used to help children at school and at home. This book offers extremely empowering information for parents and professionals alike.

The Mislabeled Child examines a full spectrum of learning disorders, from dyslexia to giftedness, clarifying the diagnoses and providing resources to help. The Eides explain how a learning disability encompasses more than a behavioral problem; it is also a brain dysfunction that should be treated differently.

About the Author:

Brock Eide, M.D., M.A., and Fernette Eide, M.D., are leading researchers and clinicians on learning disabilities. They run the Eide Neurolearning Clinic and lecture throughout the US and Canada to parents, educators, therapists and doctors.

From Booklist:

Because of the propensity of schools and society to label children, the Eides, physicians who specialize in treating children with learning challenges, want to ensure the accuracy of those labels. In their practice, they have seen children with misdiagnosed, undiagnosed, and untreated disabilities who are called lazy or underachievers. But the Eides emphasize that even the correct label does not define a child. The Eides show readers how to determine children's learning strengths and weaknesses and how to make the most of their potential. They focus on assessing children's learning systems, using that information to complete a learning profile, and using the profile to design a program of education, therapy, and play. The Eides offer physiological research on brain development, and how learning disabilities tie into behavior difficulties. The Eides get a bit academic at points, but they intersperse case studies that keep the material accessible as they examine a range of learning disabilities from ADHD to dyslexia and dysgraphia. A valuable resource for parents and educators. Vanessa Bush
