Summary
"A parental road map to navigate a child's mental health Helping parents determine whether their child's behaviour is typical for the age or, possibly, a sign of something more serious they should look into, Will My Kid Grow Out of It? uses lay terms and concrete examples to aid adults in establishing if their child may have a commonly diagnosed issue such as ADHD, depression, a learning disability, and others; where to go to get help; how to get support from schools and the medical community; and what questions to ask along the way. Each chapter expands on a specific set of behaviours that may be problematic by listing types of problems, possible diagnoses, the types of treatments that have been found to be effective, discussions of the pros and cons of alternative treatments, and typical medications. The book provides readers with access to a free interactive online screening tool and Project SKIP. Extensive ancillary resources--such as an overview of child brain development, organisations and hotlines for families, a list of commonly used medications for mental health, and a glossary--are also included"--
