The Hidden Link Between Vision and Learning: Why Millions of Learning-Disabled Children Are Misdiagnosed


By (author): Wendy Beth Rosen

Vision, in all its complexity, is more than meets the eye. The knowledge that lies between the covers of this book will define, with depth and clarity, what this magnificent sense actually encompasses and why it is critical to the learning process. Far beyond 20/20, vision involves more than two-dozen skills that enable us to navigate through the world.

There are inestimable numbers of children who are struggling with learning, and compromised in ways most people are unaware of, because these little-known visual skills are not functioning properly. This can profoundly impact a child’s success in school, and in life. The symptoms of an unrecognized vision disorder can mimic other conditions, for which many children may be classified or medicated. Because of this, the potential for misdiagnosing the true cause of a child’s struggles is enormous.

This book reveals the untold facts about the sense we rely on most and understand the least. You will come away fully informed, enriched, and equipped with answers that will shed light on why so many children are beset with stress and struggle.

Bright Not Broken: Gifted Kids, ADHD, and Autism


By (author): Diane M. Kennedy, Rebecca S. Banks

The future of our society depends on our gifted children–the population in which we’ll find our next Isaac Newton, Albert Einstein, or Virginia Woolf.  Yet the gifts and talents of some of our most brilliant kids may never be recognized because these children fall into a group known as twice exceptional, or “2e.” Twice exceptional kids are both gifted and diagnosed with a disability–often ADHD or an Autism Spectrum Disorder–leading teachers and parents to overlook the child’s talents and focus solely on his weaknesses. Too often, these children get lost in an endless cycle of chasing diagnostic labels and are never given the tools to fully realize their own potential.

Bright Not Broken sheds new light on this vibrant population by identifying who twice exceptional children are and taking an unflinching look at why they’re stuck.  The first work to boldly examine the widespread misdiagnosis and controversies that arise from our current diagnostic system, it serves as a wake-up call for parents and professionals to question why our mental health and education systems are failing our brightest children.

Finally, the authors show what we can do to help 2e children, providing a whole child model for parents and educators to strengthen and develop a child’s innate gifts while also intervening to support the deficits.  Drawing on painstaking research and personal experience, Bright Not Broken offers groundbreaking insight and practical strategies to those seeking to help 2e kids achieve their full potential.

Diane M. Kennedy, author of The ADHD-Autism Connection, is a long time advocate, international speaker/trainer, and mother of three twice-exceptional sons.

Rebecca S. Banks, M.A., co-author of The ADHD-Autism Connection, is a veteran educator, national speaker/trainer, and mother of two twice-exceptional children.

Temple Grandin, Ph.D., is a professor, prolific author, and one of the most accomplished and renowned adults with autism in the world.

Experts in the respective therapy models offer instructive commentaries at the end of each case.

Pediatric Neurotoxicology: Academic and Psychosocial Outcomes (Specialty Topics in Pediatric Neuropsychology)


This book focuses on children and the impact of neurotoxins on the developing brain to guide the practice of psychologists working with children in clinical and school settings. Each chapter covers a distinct neurotoxin or group of neurotoxins, with particular emphasis on the impact of the neurotoxin exposure on the developing brain and long-term cognitive and psychosocial outcomes. This is more complex than studying neurotoxins with adults because of the rapid development occurring in the child’s brain. Further, children are more susceptible than adults to the effects of neurotoxins due to their developmental status. Many of the effects discussed in this volume occur in utero, thus setting the stage for an altered developmental trajectory.

Evidence-based conceptual framework
A clear, straightforward methodology – based on current research and clinical experience – defines discrete levels of psychotropic agents and spells out level-specific roles and responsibilities.

  • Measuring therapeutic success
  • When to consult or refer
Group 2: Medications FDA-approved for youth, typically prescribed by specialists but often monitored in the primary care setting:  antipsychotics, mood stabilizers, antidepressants, anxiolytics, and sleep aids. To support primary care clinician’s collaborative role, usage rationales, efficacy data, and adverse effect profiles are specified for all of these agents.

Group 3: Medications not FDA-approved for youth that primary care clinicians will likely encounter. To support primary care clinician’s collaborative role, efficacy data and adverse effect profiles are specified for these agents.

Proven, practice-focused guidance
