Neuroscience-based effective tools and strategies for children labeled with: Conduct Disorder; Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD); Disruptive Mood Dysregulation Disorder (DMDD); Reactive Attachment Disorder (RAD); Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD); Anxiety and Depression; and Autism and Developmental or Learning Differences.

Very interesting perspective!

I enjoyed this book, I found it very interesting.
There are like 30 worksheets in it tho - I’m hoping those can be downloaded somewhere rather than having to relisten and make notes.
The last chapter was my favourite one - it reminded me of the fact that playing with my children and saying yes to drawing with them or watch them working out a puzzle is so much more important than tidying up the kitchen!

A must read for anyone who works with children.

Whole Brain Child, Discipline with out Damage, No Drama Discipline- all books that have been wonderful and helpful. This book fills a gap and goes deeper into bottom up behaviors and where they come from. Anyone who works with children will benefit from this book. If you have been a struggling parent this is a game changer.

highly recommend

I loved this book. it's a different perspective that's scientifically based and so compassionate. This work is so absolutely needed. I hope to see the paradigm shifting more and more away from diagnosis focused to what she presents here. highly recommend for caregivers, teachers, parents and clinicians!
