Quirky Kids: Understanding and Helping Your Child Who Doesn’t Fit In- When to Worry and When Not to Worry by Perry Klass and Eileen Costello.
(XFM Klass 2003)
Boston pediatricians Klass and Costello address a growing parenting issue: when to worry and when not, how far to push for diagnosis and/or treatment when a child’s “quirkiness” becomes concerning. The authors explore such confounding and complex syndromes as anxiety disorder, attention deficit disorder, Tourette’s syndrome, oppositional defiance disorder, Asperger’s syndrome and other problems. Klass and Costello walk parents through the steps of helping a quirky child. Pp. 400.
