Abstract
A book that shares the unique perspective of a father of a son with autism, with additional reflection from his perspective as a clinical psychologist who specializes in working with families of children with disabilities. It illustrates the impact that a child's disability has on the entire family. It is a valuable aid to parents dealing with fear, guilt, shame, sibling rivalry, marital strain, and other challenges. The book also addresses issues of bonding between parent and child and presents strategies for dealing with challenging behavior. Additional chapters are devoted to special issues for the family of a child with a disability, including the relationship between the parents, the effect on siblings, and the needs of fathers, who the author feels often require special support to express and deal with their emotions in the challenging role of parent to a child with special needs.

The author, whose own sons have Type I diabetes, begins with the shock of diagnosis and how to handle the basic day-to-day needs of a diabetic child. The author leads parents through grade school, junior high, high school (where hormone changes can affect blood sugar), and even college, where, she illustrates, a parent still may be called upon to deal with a diabetes-related situation. The book stresses the importance of always having food on hand, making teachers and friends aware of the child's condition, and continuing to be involved in the child's diabetes care as he or she grows up. Filled with personal stories this book is a must read, especially for parents dealing with a newly diagnosed child.

Abstract
The first parenting book to bring the science and psychology of children's behavior together to build brain/body awareness for self-regulation and success Self-Reg is a ground-breaking book that presents an entirely new understanding of your child's emotions and behavior that serves as a practical guide for parents to help their kids engage calmly and successfully in learning and life. Rooted in decades of clinical practice and research by leading child psychologist Dr. Stuart Shanker, Self-Reg realigns the power of the parent-child relationship for positive change. Self-regulation is the nervous system's way of responding to stress. We are seeing a generation of children and teens with excessively high levels of stress and, as a result, an explosion of emotional, social, learning, behavior, and physical health problems. But few parents recognize the "hidden stressors" that their children are struggling with: physiological as well as social and emotional. An entrenched view of child rearing is seeing our children as lacking self-control or will-power, but the real basis for these problems lies in excessive stress. Self-regulation can dramatically improve a child's mood, attention, and concentration. It can help children to feel empathy and to develop the sorts of virtues that every parent knows are vital for their child's long-term well-being. Self-regulation brings about profound and lasting transformation that continues to mature throughout life. Shanker translates decades of his findings from working with children into practical, prescriptive advice for parents, giving them concrete ways to develop their self-regulation skills and teach their children how to do the same for optimal learning, social, and emotional growth as well as for overall well-being.

Abstract
This is a book that offers a unique approach to the tantrums, melt-downs and overriding challenges that often accompany the demanding years from one to four. Viewing toddlers as primitive thinkers akin to prehistoric man, Karp divides his patients into developmental groups: the "Charming Chimp-Child" (12 to 18 months), the "Knee-High Neanderthal" (18 to 24 months), the "Clever Cave-Kid" (24 to 36 months) and the "Versatile Villager" (36 to 48 months). The book suggests that to deal effectively with the undeveloped brains of toddlers, one must understand "Toddler-ese," a method of talking to youngsters that employs short phrases, repetition, a dramatic tone of voice and the use of body language.

Abstract
Klane tells the story of Evan through recollections begun at about the time of Evan's tenth birthday—a miracle birthday if ever there was one. She records their life in and out of hospitals, doctor's offices, life-threatening emergencies, treatments, home healthcare, school, all from the moment of Evan's birth. We learn what it is like to be the parent of an exceptional child, as much as we learn what life is like for the child. To help illustrate the life of this family, their experiences, and emotions, Klane has included poems and drawings she created over the years, which have been sprinkled throughout the book, as well as family photographs. All of these are a touching reminder that this family is real and that the issues they face every day are huge. Too, this is as much a how-to book as it is the story of one family. There are chapters included on being an effective team player, taking care of yourself as a parent, learning to trust your own instincts, and how to stand up for yourself and your child when you in disagreement with the professionals. A glossary is included, as well as a medical timeline, which is a bit of a capsulation of the events Evan experienced during each year of his life to date.
