Why buy Child Decoded?
Because this is the one families needed and we couldn’t find.
The Child Decoded Team works with a huge range of children. Their families often feel confused about how to move forward, despite being buried in information. We wanted to find something that supported them without adding to the overwhelm.
What families need is guidance finding a path forward for their own unique child.
Whether a kid has problems with behavior or learning, is painfully shy or defiant, the underlying issues are usually more complex than you realize.
Over the years, we have discovered a great deal that helps fill in the larger picture, such as:
We never found a book that explained all this.
So we wrote it ourselves.
See how Child Decoded can clarify the path forward.
Figuring out a path forward for struggling children can be fraught with obstacles.
Here’s how Child Decoded can help with the most common ones we see:
Don’t know where to start?
This is the number one problem parents experience. Where’s the owner’s manual for this kid?! First, get the full picture. It can be hard to do this with kids who have learning or behavioral problems. Let our extensive and unique checklists help you sort out the pieces, evaluate solutions, and find the professionals you need.
Nothing seems to work?
Sadly, getting a diagnosis doesn’t give you a direction. It just gives the symptoms a name. No two children are the same, even with the same disorders. You will have to dig deeper than the symptoms. Let Child Decoded walk you through that process.
Want more options?
Haven’t found the right professionals, but don’t know what all the options are? We tell you who addresses what, what CAM approaches (Complementary and Alternative Medicine) might be most effective, and why sequence matters as you address your child’s issues.
Trouble staying sane?
Having kids is enough of a 3-ring circus without adding learning or behavior problems. We share tips on staying organized, working with the school, monitoring your child’s well-being and level of burnout, and keeping yourself and your family on track.
Praise for Child Decoded
“A down-to-earth, practical guide to help both parents and teachers understand why a child is having difficulty with learning or behavioral problems.”
“Blending the depth of a medical reference book with the conversational tone of a wise, caring friend who’s been there… Child Decoded is nearly flawless in its readability, presentation and storytelling.”
“A book of this type does not yet exist and is truly useful. The idea of summarizing types of practitioners and treatment approaches is unique. Parents tend to go where their pediatrician directs them and it’s not until they have been in the system for several years and know what the options are that they can then say, ‘oh, if we had only known about that option from the beginning’.”
