Description - Quirky Kids by Perri Klass

From the girl who never gets invited to a birthday party because classmates think she's "weird" to the geek who is terrific at math but is failing every other subject, quirky children are different from other kids in ways that they - and their parents - have a hard time understanding. They present a host of challenges that standard parenting books fail to address. Now, in Quirky Kids, seasoned paediatricians Perri Klass and Eileen Costello provide the expert guidance those families with quirky children so desperately need. Klass and Costello illuminate the confusing list of terms often applied to quirky children - from Asperger's syndrome and nonverbal learning disability to obsessive-compulsive behaviour and sensory integration dysfunction. The authors also discuss various therapy options, coping strategies, and available medications. Most of all, they will help quirky kids lead rich, fulfilling lives at home, at school, even on the playground.
