  • Uniquely Human
    Uniquely Human
    Winner of the Autism Society of America's Dr. Temple Grandin Award

    Autism is a different way of being human: it offers possibilities and opportunities, not disabilities. By understanding autistic behaviours as responses based on an individual's experiences and as strategies to cope with a chaotic world, Barry Prizant seeks to enhance a child's abilities, to teach new skills, help individuals build on their strengths and develop coping strategies that could aid the fulfilment of every child's promise.

    Uniquely Human debunks many of the false and outdated stereotypes that surround autism. It is a first step towards a greater understanding of people with autism and an essential part of their successful participation in and contribution to society.

    With a wealth of inspiring stories and practical advice from thousands of children and older people with autism and their families, Uniquely Human conveys a deep respect for the qualities in people on the autism spectrum that make them special. It offers a compassionate and insightful perspective that could be life-changing as well as uplifting.

  • What Is Terrorism
    What Is Terrorism
    Terror acts have taken place in several countries recently, and the media attention they generate means that children are more exposed to hearing about terrorism than ever before. Using simple language suited to children aged 7+, this book is designed for an adult to read along with a child to help ease their misunderstanding and fear.

    The authors, who are child psychologists, tackle a broad range of important but difficult questions with consideration, including: Why do some people and groups use terrorism? What are adults doing to prevent societies being hurt by terrorism? And what can we do when we feel worried and afraid?

    An honest and helpful guide to talking about terrorism with children aged 7+, this reassuring book helps adults address children's questions and concerns, in a society where children are unfortunately increasingly aware to it.

  • What Your Adhd Child Wishes You Knew
    What Your Adhd Child Wishes You Knew
    If you are the parent of a child or teen with ADHD, you're already aware that school is challenging for your son, and that the two of you argue too much. You may know that your daughter is forgetful and needs multiple reminders to remember her soccer practice and her chores. But do you really understand what it's like for them? What difference would that make in your daily parenting struggles to help them grow into responsible, competent and happy adults? This book gives parents new insights into the minds and feelings of their children with ADHD-and offers them a new, family-tested roadmap for reducing family stress and improving loving connections.

    For more than 25 years, Sharon Saline has worked with children, teens, and their families coping with ADHD-in her psychotherapy practice, as a consultant to schools, keynote speaker, and a workshop facilitator. Time and again, she has observed that the ways these parents and children miss each others' signals increases everyone's anger, frustration, hurt and disconnection.

    Instead of focusing on what their children or teens are doing wrong and how to fix them, parents will learn to interpret what their kids are communicating verbally and behaviorally and how to collaborate with them to enhance cooperation, closeness and productivity.

    Many books about ADHD tell parents what to do and how to discipline. This one explains the importance and effectiveness of being an empathically aware communicator, and how working together creates lasting results.

  • Whole brain Child 12 Revolutionary Strategies to Nurture Your Child's Developing Mind
    Whole brain Child 12 Revolutionary Strategies to Nurture Your Child's Developing Mind
    Your toddler throws a tantrum in the middle of a store. Your preschooler refuses to get dressed. Your 11-year-old sulks on the bench instead of playing on the field. Do children conspire to make their parents' lives endlessly challenging? No - it's just their developing brain calling the shots! In this pioneering, practical book, Daniel J. Siegel, neuropsychiatrist and author of the bestselling Mindsight, and parenting expert Tina Payne Bryson demystify the meltdowns and aggravation, explaining the new science of how a child's brain is wired and how it matures. The 'upstairs brain', which makes decisions and balances emotions, is under construction until the mid-20s. And especially in young children, the right brain and its emotions tend to rule over the logic of the left brain. By applying these discoveries to everyday parenting, you can turn any outburst, argument, or fear into a chance to integrate your child's brain and foster vital growth.
    With clear explanations, age-appropriate strategies for dealing with day-to-day struggles, and illustrations that will help you explain these concepts to your child, The Whole-Brain Child shows you how to cultivate healthy emotional and intellectual development so that your children can lead balanced, meaningful, and connected lives. 'Siegel and Bryson have created a masterful, reader-friendly guide to helping children grow their emotional intelligence. This brilliant method transforms everyday interactions into valuable brain-shaping moments. Anyone who cares for children - or who loves a child - should read The Whole-Brain Child.' Daniel Goleman, author of Emotional Intelligence

    Why Wont My Teenager Talk to Me
    Do you wish your son or daughter would tell you more about what is happening in their life, and that they would open up to you more often? Are you worried about them as they seem to be spending more and more time in their bedroom and on their smart phone? The teenage years can be a time of concern and worry for parents and carers from all backgrounds. However, Why Won't My Teenager Talk to Me? offers the parent and care-giver insightful and practical advice, as to how to encourage positive and respectful two-way communication between you and your teenager.

Our knowledge of the human brain has increased, and this new edition includes a whole chapter devoted to the changing teenage brain. The social world of the teenager has also continued to change. Alongside the voices of a wide range of parents and carers of teenagers, Dr John Coleman explores this changing social landscape, addressing issues like social media, mental health, and gender.
