Now, renowned educator Richard Lavoie offers practical, proven strategies to help these children learn to maintain friendships, resolve conflicts, and interpret non-verbal social cues. Written with warmth, empathy, and the authority that can only come from decades of experience with these issues, IT'S SO MUCH WORK TO BE YOUR FRIEND will enlighten and empower anyone who cares for or works with these hard-to understand children.

Praise for What is Dyslexia?: 'informative, based on the latest research and compassionate - three qualities that make this a must read for parents and children struggling with dyslexia.' - Paul M. Quinlan, Ph.D. from The Curtis Blake Center Praise for An Introduction to Dyslexia for Parents and Professionals by the same author: 'Hultquist writes in such measured, clear and uncluttered prose that no one can take the journey from diagnosis to remediation without feeling that one is in the hands of someone who really understands the issues surrounding a dyslexia diagnosis, not only for the one diagnosed but also for the whole family and the professionals working with them.' - Dyslexia Contact What is Dyslexia? is designed to help adults explain dyslexia to children. The author provides information about all the most common types of dyslexia: trouble with sounds, trouble remembering how letters and words look, trouble finding words, and mixed dyslexia. He deals with the basic facts and adopts a style which is accessible to children without talking down to them. The book includes clear examples which children will be able to understand, as well as activities for parents to do with their children. The author emphasises that everyone has strengths and weaknesses and that having dyslexia is okay. This book will be valuable for parents of children with dyslexia, as well as other adults working with children with dyslexia.

Attention Deficit Disorder: The Unfocused Mind in Children and Adults
A leading expert in the assessment and treatment of Attention Deficit Disorder/Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder dispels myths and offers reassuring, practical information about treatments. Drawing on recent findings in neuroscience and a rich variety of case studies from his own clinical practive, Dr. Thomas E. Brown describes what ADD syndrome is, how it can be recognized at different ages, and how it can best be treated. This is the first book to address the perplexing question about ADD: how can individuals, some very bright, be chronically unable to pay attention, yet be able to focus very well on specific tasks that strongly interest them? Dr. Brown disputes the willpower explanation and explains how inherited malfunctions of the brain's management system prevent some people from being able to deal adequately with challenging tasks of childhood, adolescence, and adulthood. His book is an authoritative and practical guide for physicians and psychologists, parents and teachers, and the 7 to 9 percent of persons who suffer from ADD/ADHD.

Rosemary: The Hidden Kennedy Daughter
One of People's Top Ten Books of 2015 [Larson] succeeds in providing a well-rounded portrait of a woman who, until now, has never been viewed in full. --Boston Globe ​ A biography that chronicles her life with fresh details . . . By making Rosemary the central character, [Larson] has produced a valuable account of a mental health tragedy and an influential family's belated efforts to make amends. -- New York Times Book Review Joe and Rose Kennedy's strikingly beautiful daughter Rosemary attended exclusive schools, was presented as a debutante to the queen of England, and traveled the world with her high-spirited sisters. Yet Rosemary was intellectually disabled, a secret fiercely guarded by her powerful and glamorous family. In Rosemary, Kate Clifford Larson uses newly uncovered sources to bring Rosemary Kennedy's story to light. Young Rosemary comes alive as a sweet, lively girl adored by her siblings. But Larson also reveals the often desperate and duplicitous arrangements the Kennedys made to keep her away from home as she became increasingly difficult in her early twenties, culminating in Joe's decision to have Rosemary lobotomized at age twenty-three and the family's complicity in keeping the secret. Only years later did the Kennedy siblings begin to understand what had happened to Rosemary, which inspired them to direct government attention and resources to the plight of the developmentally and mentally disabled, transforming the lives of millions. The forgotten Kennedy is forgotten no longer. Rosemary is a rare thing, a book about the Kennedys that has something new to say. -- Laurence Leamer, author of The Kennedy Women Heartbreaking. -- Wall Street Journal

'This book provides a diverse range of basic information and practical advice for adults with dyspraxia. Colley is able to describe in detail the impact that coordination and motor learning difficulties can have on many everyday activities, including cooking, shopping, sewing, gardening and swallowing medicines. This book provides a very readable, comprehensive and useful resource for adults with dyspraxia and their carers. It might also be useful for clinicians who are new to the field and have limited practical experience.' - British Journal of Occupational Therapy 'This concise and interestingly written handbook is aimed at helping dyspraxic adults to understand their condition and its impact on work, study, social relationships and leisure activities. It contains practical tips on everyday living, including voice control, body language, cooking, study skills, driving and self-care. Especially fascinating are the accounts by four dyspraxic adults of their own experiences. I would recommend the book to teachers and parents, student therapists and clinicians (especially those working in a multidisciplinary setting) who need an insight into developmental dyspraxia as experienced by adolescent and adult clients and an overview of the help available.' - Speech and Language Therapy in Practice For people with Developmental Dyspraxia, everyday life can pose a multitude of problems. Tasks the majority of people would find simple can often be taxing and fraught with difficulty. Living with Dyspraxia was written to help all adults with Dyspraxia tackle the everyday situations that many people take for granted. It is full of practical advice on everything from getting a diagnosis to learning how to manage household chores. Important topics are addressed, such as self-esteem, whether to disclose your condition within the workplace, how to communicate more effectively and also how Dyspraxia often interacts with other conditions, such as Dyslexia, ADHD and Asperger's Syndrome. This practical resource will be of use to adults with Dyspraxia, the professionals and families members who come into contact with them as well as those who simply wish to learn more about Dyspraxia.

23 very well-known people from the arts, sport, and business worlds talk about how dyslexia affected their childhood, how they were able to overcome the challenges and use the special strengths of dyslexia to achieve great success in adulthood. Darcey Bussell CBE, Eddie Izzard, Sir Richard Branson, Meg Mathews, Zoe Wanamaker CBE, Richard Rogers, Benjamin Zephaniah, Steven Naismith, Lynda La Plante CBE, Sir Jackie Stewart OBE, Sophie Conran and others share their stories, and their advice. All reveal the enormous difficulties they faced, the strength required to overcome them, the crucial importance of adult support, and how 'the different way the brain is wired' in dyslexia has enabled them to see something different in the world and to use their creativity in an exceptional way. They talk about 'thinking sideways', and the ability to look at a bigger picture, the often strong visual strength, and the ability to listen, and to grasp simplicity where other people see only complexity. They also talk about how dyslexia continues to challenge them, and the ways they have found to work around this. An introduction, and final section that includes practical information about dyslexia, are written with the support of Dyslexia Action, and a percentage of profit from the book is donated to Dyslexia Action. The book will be essential reading for teachers and other professionals, and for families affected by dyslexia, and inspirational for people with dyslexia.

In a straightforward and empathetic tone, Adelizzi and Goss sensitively offer support to parents of children with learning disabilities who wish to see their children grow to their full potential. While juggling the complex expectations imposed upon them, parents often combat confusion, anger, fear, sadness, and frustration. This book will help diffuse these overwhelming feelings, empowering parents with the ability to provide the academic and personal support their children need to thrive. Adelizzi and Goss, who contribute to a unique and highly successful collegiate program for adults with LD/ADD, demystify the very fuzzy world of LD terminology and theory and clarify the complicated process of diagnosis and treatment. They shed light on the way children and adolescents with learning disabilities function in the home environment, in social relationships, and at school. Parents will find new understanding and hope as the authors--with the collective voice of parents and children who deal with LD every day--lead them through the maze of issues they must confront.

Growing Up with Parents Who Have Learning Difficulties
Growing up with Parents who have Learning Difficulties uses a life-story approach to present new evidence about how children from such families manage the transition to adulthood, and about the longer-term outcomes of such an upbringing. It offers a view of parental competence as a social attribute rather than an individual skill, assessing the implications for institutional policies and practices. The authors address the notion of children having to parent their disabled parents and argue for a shift in emphasis from protecting children to supporting families. This innovative book provides a fresh approach to a subject rife with prejudice and challenges us to think again about many taken-for-granted ideas about the process of parenting and the needs of children. It also demonstrates the power of narrative research and its capacity for bringing alive people's experience in a way that enables us to better understand their lives.

Mastering Your Adult ADHD: A Cognitive Behavioural Treatment Program: Therapist Guide
ADHD in adulthood is a prevalent and impairing disorder. While medications have been effective in treating adult ADHD, the majority of individuals treated with medications have residual symptoms that require additional skills and symptom management strategies. Except for the intervention described in this series, there have been virtually no tested psychological interventions for clients with adult ADHD to date. Used in conjunction with the corresponding Workbook, this Therapist Guide offers effective treatment strategies that follow an empirically-supported treatment approach. It provides clinicians with effective means of teaching clients skills that have been scientifically tested and shown to help adults cope with ADHD. The step-by-step, session-by-session descriptions are a practical resource for therapists who deliver the treatment to clients with ADHD. Together, the therapist guide and client workbook contain all of the information and materials necessary to deliver this treatment in the context of individual outpatient cognitive-behavioural therapy.

Ageing with a Lifelong Disability: A Guide to Practice, Program and Policy Issues for Human Services Professionals
'A comprehensive text addressing this issue is welcome and this book addresses service provision for older people with disabilities from a UK, USA and Australian perspective. The book would serve as a useful reference book for Health and Social Service personnel, particularly students, from a variety of disciplines working with older adults, in the learning disability field or with older people who have lifelong physical disabilities. A particular strength is the inclusion of case vignettes that describe individual older clients with lifelong disabilities; interesting questions are posed for discussion which relate to the subject matter in each of the five sections. The vignettes are interesting and enjoyable to read and would be useful for group work/teaching purposes.' - International Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry 'This book is most welcome with an extensive review of the research and service development in the United States, the United Kingdom and Australia with illustrative vignettes and relevant questions following the first four parts of the book. Suggested literature is also part of each chapter. All in all, a book recommended for both practitioners, researchers and policy makers involved with persons with life long disability as they age.' - International Journal of Adolescent Medical Health 'In all, this book is an essential addition to the library of service provider organisations, policymakers, researchers, and families and all who wish to share in ensuring the well-being and quality lifestyles of this growing and emerging group of citizens. I see this book as a seminal text in this area.' - Marie Knox (School of Humanities and Human Services, Queensland University of Technology, Brisbane) in Intellectual Disability Australasia 'This book makes a commendable contribution in uniting thinking and strategic planning, and also through providing empirical evidence to illustrate ways forward that have meaning for older people with disabilities, their families and front-line professionals.' - from the Foreword by Gordon Grant Based on the author's 18 years' research experience and social work practice expertise, this pioneering guide provides up to date specialist knowledge about ageing with a disability in the context of the more mainstream knowledge about ageing processes. Christine Bigby uses the concept of 'successful ageing' as a framework in which to consider the issues and practicalities for older people with a lifelong disability. Bigby presents strategies for the various challenges involved in the physiological, psychological and sociological aspects of ageing and proposes an integrated framework of service development and policy directions for the implementation of these strategies. Particular focus is given to lifestyle planning, encompassing subjects such as daily activity and leisure, housing and support, advocacy, case management and health. Consideration is also given to working with older parental carers of adults with a lifelong disability to support preparation and planning for the transition from parental care.
