Lars is the father of 13-year-old Silas, who has been diagnosed with ADHD, Tourette's syndrome, and other developmental disorders. Despite sending his son to a specialized Denmark school that shields him from frustration and defeat, Lars is concerned that Silas is learning little. So when Lars learns of 91-year-old Israeli professor Reuven Feuerstein, who has worked with children with problems similar to Silas', he travels to Jerusalem to learn more.
A Diagnosed Boy details Feuerstein's theories, which state that one should challenge children to help them enhance their mental skills, overcome their disabilities, and become integrated into society. Feuerstein's focus on potential found its roots in his work as a young cognitive psychologist in Jerusalem after World War II, when was entrusted with many of the surviving children who were traumatized by their experiences in Nazi concentration camps. There, he developed his theory of intelligence, which he found to be not "fixed" but modifiable through intervention, an approach that Lars hopes will help treat his son.
