        Current estimates indicate that 20% of school-aged children, K-12, have one or more neurological conditions, and of these, most have multiple diagnoses.

        Challenging Kids, Challenged Teachers is an educator's go-to source for creating a supportive environment to successfully teach children with multiple neurological disorders including Tourette's Syndrome, OCD, ADHD, LD, Nonverbal Learning Disability, Pervasive Developmental Disorders, Asperger's Syndrome, Anxiety Disorders, Depression, Executive Dysfunction, Sensory Processing Disorder, Pediatric Autoimmune Neuropsychiatric Disorder Associated with Strep (PANDAS), Bipolar Disorder, "Storms" or "Rages", Oppositional Defiant Disorder, and Sleep Problems. Parents, school psychologists, and social workers will also find this book essential reading.

        The wealth of practical tools and strategies discussed in this book are founded on the authors' considerable experience treating children with neurological disorders in their private practices and conducting training workshops for teachers, as well as parenting their own children with multiple diagnoses. Full of charts, graphs, lists, quotes, and vignettes, this well-organized resource makes it easy for busy teachers to find the information they need, including:
        • Understanding neurological disorders and why they may overlap, the behaviors they cause, and sanity-saving premises about understanding these students
        • Each disorder's characteristics, impacts on academics, behavior & social relationships, teacher/student-friendly strategies, other conditions to be on the lookout for
        • Conditions commonly observed in students with neurological disorders such as handwriting & visual-motor integration issues, language deficits, and difficulties with written expression, math calculation, reading, and more
        • Assistive technology, testing accommodations, homework issues, interventions to address challenging behaviors, school-based related services, positive school-home collaboration, and helping children with peer relationships
        • Challenging Kids, Challenged Teachers also includes a glossary and resources, and its appendix of screening tools, forms, and checklists are on the accompanying CD-ROM for easy reproduction.

                Against Medical Advice
                BY James Patterson & Hal Friedman

                The dramatic true account of one family's struggle with a tormenting medical mystery.

                One morning when he was almost five years old, Cory Friedman woke up with the uncontrollable urge to shake his head. From that day forward his life became an agony of irrepressible tics and involuntary utterances. Cory embarked on a fifteen-year odyssey of medication upon medication, treatment upon treatment–a constantly changing regimen that left him and his family feeling like guinea pigs in an out-of-control experiment. It soon became unclear which tics were symptoms of his condition and which were side effects of the countless combinations of drugs. The only certainty was that it kept getting worse. Simply put: Cory Friedman's life was a living hell.

                Subjected to debilitating treatments and continuous ridicule, Cory became devastatingly aware of how he appeared to others. With the love of his family and the support of a few steadfast teachers and medical professionals, he fought for his very life, and you will cheer his amazing successes.
                Against Medical Advice is the true story of Cory's battle for survival in the face of extraordinary difficulties and a sometimes maddening medical establishment. Written by James Patterson and Cory's father, Hal, and with the relentless pace of a Patterson thriller, this is a heartrending story of one family's courage, determination, and ultimate triumph.

                  I want to tell everyone, please, please read this book!!! It is amazing the insight you will gain by seeing from Cory's first hand account of what he went through and his insights about how his parents coped when things would spiral out of control with him. James Patterson brings his unique writing abilities to this book and I could not put it down and read it within 2 days. I would love to get a copy of this book for my personal library as it is something you can read again and again. I now understand how my son's brain sees things with the Tourette's OCD and high anxiety he has. It helps me to be able to deal with his rages and tics in a more appropriate manner with understanding of what he is thinking while it is happening. I think this book also taught me that while we want to protect our children we sometimes have to let them fail to let them see what they can do themselves. It also teaches us to trust our instincts and be the best advocate for our child as we can.

                    Brain Lock: Free Yourself from Obsessive-Compulsive Behavior
                    by Jeffrey M. Schwartz (Author) , Beverly Beyette (Author)

                    An estimated 5 million Americans suffer from obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and live diminished lives in which they are compelled to obsess about something or to repeat a similar task over and over. Traditionally, OCD has been treated with Prozac or similar drugs. The problem with medication, aside from its cost, is that 30 percent of people treated don't respond to it, and when the pills stop, the symptoms invariably return.

                    In Brain Lock, Jeffrey M. Schwartz presents a simple four-step method for overcoming OCD that is so effective, it's now used in academic treatment centers throughout the world. Proven by brain-imaging tests to actually alter the brain's chemistry, this method doesn't rely on psychopharmaceuticals. Instead, patients use cognitive self-therapy and behavior modification to develop new patterns of response to their obsessions. In essence, they use the mind to fix the brain. Using the real-life stories of actual patients, Brain Lock explains this revolutionary method and provides readers with the inspiration and tools to free themselves from their psychic prisons and regain control of their lives.

                    Available on Amazon i various formats including Kindle


                    To gain an understanding of the Four Steps proposed by Dr. Jeffrey Schwartz, this video (made during a presentation in England) provides an introduction to the strategies outlined in Brain Lock.

                      Hey. Got tics? You’re not alone. Up to one in five kids will have at least one tic at some point. Including the guy who wrote this book!

                      Dr. B. Duncan McKinlay, Psychologist (‘Dr. Dunc’) has Tourette Syndrome. That means he’s been living with both motor tics (movements he has a hard time stopping) and phonic tics (noises he has a hard time stopping) for most of his life. He knows firsthand how annoying, embarrassing, misunderstood, painful, and disruptive tics can be.

                      For years, he’s been educating people all around the world by means of his presentations & Website, and through appearances on television, in magazines, and on film. Now, in “Nix Your Tics!”, he wants to share with you a little-known but well-established, evidence-based practice* he uses to manage tic symptoms in both himself and in his patients.

                      *as per criteria set out by the American Psychological Association’s Division 12 Task Force on Promotion and Dissemination of Psychological Procedures.

                      Review relevant research in support of this treatment.

                        Publication Date: Sep 9 2008 | ISBN-10: 0195341287 | ISBN-13: 978-0195341287 | Edition: 1

                        In 2002, the Tourette Syndrome Association formed the TS Behavioral Sciences Consortium (BSC). The charge of the BSC was to develop and test nonpharmacological treatment options for individuals, both children and adults with Tourette Syndrome. This manual is the result of their work, and represents the most scientifically effective behavioral treatment for Tourette Syndrome available today.

                        The treatment program uses Habit Reversal Training (HRT) for children and adults with chronic tic disorder. Individual treatment is based at its core on awareness training, the development of a specific competing response for each tic, and the use of functionally-based strategies for the elimination of tic-exacerbating antecedent and consequent variables.

                        In addition, individual treatment includes techniques designed to enhance patient compliance, including social support and an inconvenience review, as well as scheduled time for the therapist and client to discuss areas of functioning that individuals with TS may find difficult, such as social/familial difficulties and disruptive/anger/rage behavior. Each week, clients are given homework assignments, to be done 4-5 times per week, consisting of 20 to 30 minutes of awareness and competing response training to tics addressed in session.

                        The client will be encouraged to keep tally marks to monitor tic behavior. Home-based monitoring and competing response training are reviewed at each session. All homework assignments will be available in the companion workbook (below).

                        Review by Dr. Duncan McKinlay:
                        Thanks to these researchers, a well-established evidence-based practice (as per APA criteria) is finally getting its due. Their 2010 paper in the Journal of the American Medical Association provides further data that the treatment found within this therapist guide is very efficacious, well-tolerated, and enduring while also providing a more tailored approach to treatment than medications can provide - all without the sometimes aversive side-effects that pharmaceutical treatment options may entail.

                        These authors have created a triad of excellent companion books - this therapist guide, an accompanying workbook for adult patients, and an accompanying workbook for parents of children with tic disorders. The fourth 'pole' (a stand-alone manual for youth themselves to read) is entitled "Nix Your Tics!" and has been created by a separate author (the undersigned: Dr. B. Duncan McKinlay, Psychologist)

                          Freeing Your Child from Anxiety: Powerful, Practical Solutions to Overcome Your Child's Fears, Worries, and Phobias [Paperback]
                          Tamar Chansky Ph.D. (Author)

                          Book Description
                          Release date: March 30, 2004
                          Anxiety is the number one mental health problem facing young people today.


                          Childhood should be a happy and carefree time, yet more and more children today are exhibiting symptoms of anxiety, from bedwetting and clinginess to frequent stomach aches, nightmares, and even refusing to go to school. Parents everywhere want to know: All children have fears, but how much is normal? How can you know when a stress has crossed over into a full-blown anxiety disorder? Most parents don’t know how to recognize when there is a real problem and how to deal with it when there is.

                          In Freeing Your Child From Anxiety, a childhood anxiety disorder specialist examines all manifestations of childhood fears, including social anxiety, Tourette’s Syndrome, hair-pulling, and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, and guides you through a proven program to help your child back to emotional safety.

                          No child is immune from the effects of stress in today’s media-saturated society. Fortunately, anxiety disorders are treatable. By following these simple solutions, parents can prevent their children from needlessly suffering today—and tomorrow.
