The physician's guide to diagnosing and treating learning disabilities in children

1 in 10 Canadians have a learning disability, and doctors must be able to identify, diagnose, treat, and manage children who are struggling in school. The first book specifically tailored for the needs of physicians working with kids with learning disabilities, Children With School Problems: A Physician's Manual covers such important areas as child development, diagnosing learning disabilities (including data gathering, screening and assessment, and physical examinations), management (medication, behavioral management, and educational interventions), and prevention (including literacy promotion).

Written by trusted experts from the Canadian Paediatric Society, Children With School Problems is filled with practical tools and resources that physicians?including paediatricians, family physicians, and paediatric learners?can use to diagnose and treat children with learning disabilities.

  • The only book on learning disabilities in children specifically designed for physicians
  • Written by trusted experts from the Canadian Paediatric Society
  • Covers important issues including literacy promotion, screening for disabilities, medication options, and much more
  • Gives physicians the tools they need to help children with learning disabilities

Physicians want to know more about learning disabilities, and parents want their pediatricians and family physicians to provide more help when their kids struggle in school. Children with School Problems provides that information, making it an invaluable resource for any doctor working with kids.
