Nya böcker om asperger och ADHD

Det förefaller ha kommit fram en hel del nya böcker och talböcker om ADHD och Aspergers syndrom i dagarna. Piraterna verkar veta vad de gör.

Behandling av ADHD

Gillberg, Barn och vuxna med Aspergers syndrom

Thinking in pictures

THe unwritten rules of social relationships

Och till slut Temple Grandins bok Animals in transition både som e-bok och som talbok.

I dag skriver sydsvenskan om en till som fått ett bättre liv tack vare diagnos och adekvat insatta åtgärder. Vågar man fråga kritikerna vad de har för alternativ till detta? Eller är det viktigaste att bara vara kritiska mot att människor får ett bättre liv?

Är det inte en av de allvarligaste kultursjukdomarna vi känner till just missunsammhet?

Bok & filmpaketet om ADHD, Asperger och Tourette

Har tagit reda på lite mer om video och bokpaketet: ADHD, Tourette syndrom, Aspergers syndrom, Autism och Dyslexi på piratebay. Förteckningen där var ganska kort.

Boken om Tourette syndrom heter konstigt nog:

This volume discusses issues, such as: the prevalence of TS, the nature of the TS phenotype, the role of autoimmunity in the development of TS, the role of comorbidity in functional outcomes of TS patients, and approaches to identifying the TS gene/genes.”

Dyslexia stundents in need
”Dyslexia: Students in Need” offers a positive approach to students with dyslexia in further and higher education. Students with dyslexia gain degrees and professional qualifications, and successes of this kind often depend on appropriate educational and technological support and upon funding. ”Dyslexia: Students in Need”, in an easy-to-read typeface, tackles the problems and challenges identified by students themselves. It provides information on applications and admissions to colleges and universities, and on seeking information, support and funding about dyslexia from institutions. It provides information on how to apply for funding from the Disabled Students’ Allowance (DSA), and study skills relevant to dyslexia and to course requirements, with examples of how to maximise the strengths and abilities associated with dyslexia. It also presents ideas about the use of computers, software and other technologies relevant to dyslexia, and how to cope with revision and exams. It includes personal case studies written by undergraduate and postgraduate students with dyslexia.
This book is not only invaluable for dyslexic students, but valuable reading for Heads of Departments, admissions tutors, Equal Opportunities co-ordinators, lecturers, personal tutors and librarians.

8 dokumentär filmer och 8 böcker, ska bli spännande att titta på lite närmare. En del titlar verkar vara ganska svårtlästa och mer tillägnade en professionell publik, vad det nu kan tänkas vara … Målgruppen kanske är tänkt som läkare etc. vem vet men lite kunskap om de här frågorna ska nog inte bara vara dem förunnat
