Just some detail clarifications  Jan 4, 2005
Larry Silver's book is full of useful information, explained in a relatively nontechnical way to the nonspecialist. But I would like to address a certain detail inaccuracy in the way he explains IQ scores:

On Page 193 of the third edition, he says that "scores between 85 and 110 are considered to be within the average range." Actually, for reporting purposes, 90-109 are considered Average. 80-89 is Low Average, and 110-119 is High Average. Then there are other classifications for scores below or above these levels.

Another way of looking at "Average" is to broaden the range to one standard deviation below and one standard deviation above 100. This is 15 points each way. The Average range would be 85-115.

So "Average" would be either 90-109, or 85-115; not 85-110.

Also, the WISC is now in its 4th edition as of summer 2003. There are no longer Verbal IQ, Performance IQ and Full Scale IQ. Instead, there are four "indices" (plural of "index"): Verbal Comprehension, Perceptual Reasoning, Working Memory, Processing Speed. Plus the Full Scale IQ, which is roughly an averaging of the four indices. Hopefully this change will be addressed in the fourth edition of Dr. Silver's book.

A Godsend!  Apr 22, 2003
I bought this book out of total desperation, and I laughed and cried my entire way through it. Dr. Silver explains what we have been living, and it is understandable, readable, and right on the money. There is no hocus-pocus, junk, or controversial ideas in this book, it is the right stuff to get you help for your child. If you can't get Dr. Silver in person, then this book is a good substitute. Through this book, I also discovered that I have had ADHD all of my life, and it was never diagnosed. It was like a lightbulb went on. When you finish this book, there will be no question if ADHD is the problem. Through this book, I am now working on getting help for my son and for myself. Thank You, Dr. Silver!
A good overview  Jan 22, 2003
As a mother whose child has just been diagnosed with learning disabilities and ADHD, I found this book very helpful. It provided a thorough overview of how these conditions are evaluated and treated, and valuable advice for getting assistance for your child from his/her school. I also appreciated the author's obvious compassion for children who are having difficulties in school, and his insistence that the child's emotional issues (either caused by, or causing, the symptoms of ADHD) not be overlooked. Finally, unlike a lot of books about ADHD and learning disabilities, this book was mostly substantive information with very little fluff and filler. I would recommend this book to any parent in my situation.
Should be subtitled "Kids with ADHD"  Jan 15, 2003
I can see how this book could be very helpful to parents
of kids with ADHD. The sections on advocating for your
child are also bound to be useful to many parents. But
this book isn't much help to parents of non-ADHD kids.
The Misunderstood Child  Mar 6, 2002
I found this book to be extremely helpful in explaining all aspects of ADHD. I highly recommend this book to anyone wanting information regarding ADHD and how children are tested.
