    Alright, everyone knows now that the Misdiagnosis book is wonderful, but last Monday, Brock and Fernette Eide's book came out. It is the Mislabeled Child.

    This is another must read now book. I've devoured it since Monday. I've learned so much about my son in the Handwriting and the Midas Touch (about 2E) chapters.

    This book really explains how the brain work (working memory, personal memory and impersonal memory...etc) and how these systems can overload in very bright children causing automacity to be delayed and.....well, read it!!!

    medications are often not be the best ways to help children who are
    struggling to learn. The authors guide parents, educators, and other
    professionals through the morass of commonly used labels and
    treatments, offering specific helping suggestions that can be used
    to help children at school and at home. This book offers extremely
    empowering information for parents and professionals alike.
