Gifted children and adults are frequently misdiagnosed, particularly those who are twice-exceptional (2e). This much-anticipated second edition of a best-selling book is your guide to help prevent that. Some of our brightest, most creative children and adults are misdiagnosed as having behavioral or emotional disorders such as ADD/ADHD, Oppositional Defiant Disorder, Bipolar Disorder, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, or Asperger's Disorder. Many receive unneeded medications and/or inappropriate counseling. How can this happen? Physicians, psychologists, and counselors often are unaware of characteristics of gifted children and adults that mimic pathological diagnoses. James T. Webb, Edward R. Amend, Paul Beljan, Nadia E. Webb, Marianne Kuzujanakis, F. Richard Olenchak. and Jean Goerss guide parents and professionals to distinguish between behaviors that are pathological and those that are "normal" for gifted individuals.Topics include: The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition (DSM-5) and ICD-10 Diagnoses most commonly given to gifted children and adults Learning disabilities and other 2e issues Allergies, asthma, and hypoglycemia Addictive disorders Issues for gifted adults Advice for selecting a counselor or healthcare professional

Recensioner i media

"This book guides parents, teachers, and professionals so students can achieve their full potential. Kids with labels such as ADHD, autism, or Asperger's may also be gifted in math, art, or music, and educators and parents must work to develop their abilities."
~ Temple Grandin, Ph.D., world-renowned autism expert and author of The Autistic Brain and Thinking in Pictures
"All kids are hard to diagnose, and gifted kids are the most likely to be misunderstood and misdiagnosed. It is very easy to give a psychiatric diagnosis, so very hard to erase one, and the mislabeling can stigmatize and haunt a child for life. Parents need to be well informed to protect their children from diagnostic exuberance and unneeded treatments."
~ Allen Frances, M.D., Chair DSM IV Task Force; Former Chair, Duke Department of Psychiatry; Author: Saving Normal: An Insider's Revolt against DSM-V, Big Pharma, and the Medicalization of Ordinary Life.
"A widespread and serious problem...the wasting of lives from the misdiagnosis of gifted children and adults and the inappropriate treatment that follows."
~ Jack G. Wiggins, Ph.D., Former President, American Psychological Association
"Should be required reading for every professional who cares for children and every parent with a bright, but behaviorally perplexing, child."
~ Fernette R. Eide, M.D., Neurologist, and Brock L. Eide, M.D., General Practitioner, Eide Neurolearning Clinic
