The Eide team (Drs. Brock and Fernette) are, in my mind, among the nations' most knowledgeable in the combined areas of neuroscience, learning disabilities, and giftedness. Together, they run the Eide Neurolearning Clinic outside Seattle, publish and present at conferences around the country and this year presented at the President's Council on Bioethics on The Fundamental Needs of Children. The transcript is worth reading and there's a link from their website. They are also board members of SENG (Supporting the Emotional Needs of the Gifted).Read more ›
I know all too well the pressure a parent of a "special" child feels and how one label can affect the child's entire school career. The Mislabeled Child shows parents how their child's disability is not a hindrance, rather, a different ability.
Doctors Brock and Fernette Eide guide parents through obtaining an accurate diagnosis of their child's learning and behavioral issues. They then show us how to positively harness our child's different ability and direct it onto a path that will turn it into the strength it really is.
Three cheers for the Eides. Thank you for making a common problem common knowledge. Thank you for providing a voice of assurance and empowerment. Thank you for arming parents with the information they truly need to help see their children through to success.
The Drs. Eide have demystified many learning differences and their impact on the whole child. Their desire for each child to succeed is clearly evident throughout the book. They share with the reader compensatory strategies, types of remediation, interventions and needed accommodations. "The authors describe how understanding a child's unique strengths can be used to overcome obstacles to learning."
In addition they also show how some LD's actually mimic each other. For example: CAPD (Central auditory processing disorder) is often mislabeled as ADD/ADHD. Or how you can read and write yet still be dyslexic.
Thomas G. West, author of "In the Mind's Eye" and "Thinking Like Einstein" said it best: " In "The Mislabeled Child", the Eides help us to differentiate more clearly between various traits and labels, always looking deeply into the diverse nature of each individual. This is important work. Some of our brightest and most creative minds hang in the balance."
