“I don’t usually buy the books that I endorse. I will buy this book and keep it close at hand in my office. It is a wonderful, comprehensive tool for the parents of any child that is struggling. I will also use this book with the medical students and pediatric psychiatry residents that rotate with me to learn how to treat the whole child. What a valuable roadmap for healing!”
Scott Shannon, MD, Integrative Pediatric Psychiatrist, Author of Parenting the Whole Child
“As a public school developer for the past 10 years, I am most baffled by public education’s inability to truly personalize education. After one reading of the book, my ability to articulate a vision for a compassionate personalized education has skyrocketed. Child Decoded provides parents with a very clear resource that helps them unravel and identify their children’s distinct struggles.”
Elizabeth A. Wolfson, Chief Visionary Officer, Girls Athletic Leadership Schools Inc.
“I am super picky about books [that cover] ADHD…So when I say that Child Decoded is an excellent handbook, I mean it…. What I know for sure about these issues is that they are layered. It is rare for a child or teen to have just ADHD or to have just a math disability. In fact, when I polled parents, I found that, on average, kids had 3-5 co-occurring diagnoses. This is a user-friendly handbook that will help parents navigate the path of neuro-exceptionality from childhood into adulthood.”
“A down-to-earth, practical guide to help both parents and teachers understand why a child is having difficulty with learning or behavioral problems.”
Temple Grandin, author of Thinking in Pictures: The Autistic Brain
“This is an unprecedented resource for parents attempting to navigate in uncharted territory. I wish I’d had this book by my side as a pediatrician in primary care and as my own neurodiverse children entered school!”
Rachel Workman, ABP Board Certified in General Pediatrics
“This book can rightly be called an owner’s manual for the many parents who’ve spent sleepless nights wondering how to help their kids realize their potential.”
“Child Decoded is a brilliant compilation of theories and suggestions by experts in their fields, in one easy-to-use resource. Over the course of my career, I personally worked with hundreds of parents. Many of them were stymied by the traits their children were displaying and didn’t know who to go to for answers. Others were baffled by the inner workings of the school district when it came to students with special needs. Child Decoded would have been the perfect reference to share with parents! I highly recommend Child Decoded for any parent with any unanswered questions or baffling challenges they may be facing.”
Ruth Anderson, Ed.D.
“To my knowledge, 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’.”
