Finally, a chapter on the role of medications summarizes current knowledge. The author's sympathetic yet upbeat approach and skillful explanations of the inner world of children in the syndrome mix make this an invaluable companion for parents, teachers, professionals, and anyone else who needs fast and to-the-point advice on children with special needs.

This book describes the four most common developmental disorders of childhood. The basic features of each disorder, diagnosis, incidence and treatment strategies are covered separately. However, during the last decade evidence has been accumulating which indicates that these particular disorders often occur in combination.
