Is That My Child? A Parents Guide to Dyspraxia, Dyslexia, ADD, ADHD, OCD and Tourette's Syndrome

by Robin Pauc
£12.99   paperback  Virgin Books (2006)

Is That My Child? A Parents Guide to Dyspraxia, Dyslexia, ADD, ADHD, OCD and Tourette In this must-read volume for all parents, would-be parents and educators, Dr Robin Pauc, an expert in child neurology, approaches learning difficulties, including, Dyslexia, ADD, OCD, ADHD, Dyspraxia and Tourette's syndrome of Childhood, from a truly ground-breaking perspective.
 
All human babies are born prematurely and develop special brain cells four months after birth in the newly discovered process of bpoptosis. Every human's development in the womb and particularly in these early stages of life can, therefore, be affected by developmental delay, which can blight childhood and marginalize a child at school. Since our brains continue to grow well into adulthood, however, the symptoms can also be treated.
 
Is That My Child? explains the background to human developmental delay and contains: advice on how to get the best assessment for your child and an explanation of what the examination must include; effects - good and bad - of certain foods on the brain; use of exercise in the management of developmental delay; exercises and computer programs that you can use to expand your child's neural function; and case histories of children for whom this plan has worked.
