Challenging Kids, Challenged Teachers

August 27, 2010

September means back to school with both new challenges and exciting opportunities for students, their teachers and families. However, according to mothers and authors  Leslie E. Packer, Ph.D. and Sheryl K. Pruitt, M.Ed., ET/P, who wrote Challenging Kids, Challenged Teachers (now in our collection),  for those children diagnosed with multiple neurological disorders,  school-related problems increase exponentially.

If your child or student has been diagnosed with overlapping disorders such as Asperger's Syndrome, Sleep Deprivation, Tourette Syndrome, Attention Deficit Disorder and Anxiety Disorder, for example, this book will help you  to move forward with greater understanding.  The authors make sense of the alphabet soup of confusing ACRONYMS; teach how to reframe our thinking, language, parenting and teaching skills as we react to unintentional misbehaviors and suggest "sanity-saving premises" that take us from chaos to awareness.

The greatest portion of the book is devoted to providing practical tools and strategies for teachers, parents and care-givers in areas of math, behavior modification, homework and motivation.
