Temple Grandin, PhD and Margaret M. Scariano. She lived in a world like no other...

She longed for affection but feared human contact. Unable to experience reality as other children could, Temple Grandin was quick to anger, easily overstimulated, and isolated. Facing ceaseless waves of terrifying nerve attacks, she was a child heading into a dark abyss of autism. But within her lonely world, Temple's creativity, intelligence, and yearning for emergence refused to die.

EYES FOR LEARNING: Preventing and Curing Vision-Related Learning Problems

$34.95
$34.95

By Antonia Orfield
Poor vision, if unnoticed and untreated, can dramatically reduce a child's school achievement. While it is easy to blame underachievement on a variety of causes, the real cause may be directly related to vision development. Strong vision is much more than being able to see the blackboard from the back row. Solid visual skills that underlie brain learning are developed through a variety of activities that are less and less a part of children's lives thanks to TV and video games. Eyes for Learning explains how parents and teachers can spot a vision-related learning problem and how to treat it. Dr. Antonia Orfield provides answers about referrals, required vision tests, and vision-improvement techniques. The bottom line is that good vision is a learned skill that is best developed by the practices explained in this book. Understanding these explanations can go a long way in saving a child from failure in school. Softbound, 302 pages.

Focus Your Mind's Eye

$12.95
$12.95

By H.R. Dawkins and Dr. C. Forkiotis - The case histories in this book are about people who endured devastating health problems, or survived massive accidents, sometimes because of miracle surgery, but found their lives had become nightmares. The problems might be obvious, like blurred or double vision, or more subtle like dizziness, nausea, clumsiness, poor balance and inability to concentrate. Often, as they trekked from doctor to doctor, they were told, "Sorry, that's the way it is, there's nothing to be done". Yet there are solutions. Each case history tells of someone who eventually was helped by an optometrist who specialized in behavioral vision care. Each found immeasurable relief through optometric vision therapy. When you learn how to Focus Your Mind's Eye, health, learning and behavior problems are often eased because hidden vision difficulties are eased. Softbound, 82 pages.

Myth of the ADD Child

$15.00
$15.00

By Thomas Armstrong, Ph.D. - This is the first book of its kind to squarely challenge the mislabeling of millions of children as Attention Deficit Disordered and to question the overuse of psychoactive drugs in treating children's hyperactivity. Dr. Armstrong believes that many behaviors labeled as A.D.D. are in fact a child's active response to complex social, emotional and educational influences. He believes that by tackling the root causes of a child's attention and behavior problems, rather than masking the symptoms with medication and behavior modification programs, parents can help their children begin to experience fundamentally positive changes in their lives. The book is divided into two parts. The first part, Uncovering the A.D.D. Myth gives a background on A.D.D., including chapters on ritalin, America's new learning disease and more. The second part of the book provides 50 innovative, proven and safe ways to help a child develop lifelong internal controls that involve every aspect of a child's development from education and cognition to biology, culture and visualization. Also included are hundreds of resources. Softbound, 303 pages.

By Jacob Liberman, O.D. - A mind/body approach to expanding your eyesight and insight, this revolutionary new look at vision will broaden your understanding of how you see and how you can see without glasses or contact lenses. Dr. Liberman explains how most vision problems are the result of an unconscious decision to close your eyes to emotional discomfort or pain, and how increasingly powerful corrective lenses only encourage eyesight to withdraw even further. By removing lenses and practicing breath- and movement-awareness techniques to shift your perception, you can reintegrate the original disruption in the mind/body system. Softbound, 261 pages.
