'As the first book to cover such a wide range of disorders for lay readers, this is highly recommended for public libraries with special- needs parenting sections'. ---Library Journal
'This book is subtitled "The one-stop guide for parents, teachers and other professionals", and it lives up to that claim. When it becomes clear that a child has comorbid conditions, I now give her parents this easy-to-read overview instead of a stack of books...for many parents it will be all that's needed to move forward, in collaboration with a doctor and mental-health professional, toward effective treatment.' ---Carol Brady, clinical psychologist on attitudemag.com
'The author and contributors show compassion and understanding for children who face special challenges because of their disorders. Above all, the whole approach here is positive and upbeat... Teachers and parents are assured that being well informed and empathetic puts them in a good position to help.' --- School Library Journal
