The Intelligent Parents' Manual: A Practical Guide to the Problems of Childhood and Adolescence provides an introduction to problems that may arise in the development of the child from birth to adolescence. This book discusses the problem in the relation between parents and children. Organized into five parts encompassing eight chapters, this book begins with an overview of the general pattern of a child's growth. This text then examines how parents can protect the baby from the two instinctive fears of the sensation of falling and the sound of loud noises. Other chapters consider the mother's task in a child's life, namely, provide opportunity and freedom, protect the child from physical injury, and keep the child from doing too much damage to property. This book discusses as well the development during adolescence. The final chapter deals with the parent's realistic conception of the limitations of their children and themselves. This book is a valuable resource for parents, psychologists, and psychiatrists.

Often described as 'social phobia's cousin' and misdiagnosed as autism, selective mutism is a debilitating fear of speaking in some situations experienced by some children. The disorder usually presents in children before the age of five, but it may not be recognized until the child starts school. When requested to speak, children with selective mutism often look down, blush, or otherwise express anxiety that disrupts their engagement with people and activities. Selective mutism is related to social anxiety and social phobia, and more than 90 percent of children with selective mutism also manifest symptoms of one of these problems. This book is the first available for parents of children with selective mutism. It offers a broad overview of the condition and reviews the diagnostic criteria for the disorder. The book details a plan you can use to coordinate professional treatment of your child's disorder. It also explains the steps you can take on your own to encourage your child to speak comfortably in school and in his or her peer group. All of the book's strategies employ a gradual, 'stepladder' approach. The techniques gently encourage children to speak more, while at the same time helping them feel safe and supported. Angela E. McHolm, Ph.D., is director of the Selective Mutism Service at McMaster Children's Hospital in Hamilton, ON. The Selective Mutism Service offers outpatient psychiatric consultation to families and professionals such as school personnel, speech and language pathologists, and mental health clinicians who support children with selective mutism. She is assistant professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioural Neurosciences in the Faculty of Health Sciences at McMaster University in Hamilton, ON.

This Annie Ape -90 Days to Literacy Manual is the instruction book for the Annie Ape - 90 days to Literacy Picture Book found here. Title ID: 5922017 ISBN-13: 978-1895112535 Together they form an instructional package to teach your child to read in 90 days. Preparation for learning to read is far more efficient and cost-effective than remediation. After more than 20 years of teaching beginning Grade One students who can barely recite the alphabet, three things are very clear. First, parents play a vital role in the preparation for Grade One while their children are in Kindergarten. Second, there is a strong need for a low-cost program that parents can use, at home, in a time-frame of half an hour or less. Third, it is essential that the materials develop skills that meet the teacher's expectations of what the children can say and do when they enter the Grade One classroom. What Alphabet Knowledge Means Research tells us consistently that knowledge of the alphabet is the single, best predictor of learning success. Year after year, research studies confirm that what happens in the first few years shapes the child's academic and social well-being later in life. Children considered prepared to learn by the time they start Grade One are usually set for a lifetime of academic success. Careful preparation and development of the skills needed is more efficient than remediation. Such preparation for learning is the driving force behind Annie Ape - 90 Days to Literacy. It is designed to help parents discover and understand what alphabet knowledge means and why it is so important for their Kindergarten children. A Comprehensive Program Annie Ape - 90 Days to Literacy is a powerful and comprehensive, alternate program. It establishes a climate for learning to read similar to the one in which the child learns to speak. Parents don't present formal speaking lessons to their infants and toddlers. Yet the child learns to speak in imitation of the speech that surrounds him. In the same way, and as much as possible, Annie presents the skills needed to learn to read in a natural environment so that learning to read can take place. It is such an understandable and comprehensive process that some children seem to be able to read spontaneously toward the end of the program. Others go on to learn to read in the classroom, seemingly with little effort. Annie Ape prepares the child so that reading can take place, naturally, when the child feels the need. Who Can Use the Material The activities in Annie Ape - 90 Days to Literacy are those that most parents WOULD DO , if only THEY KNEW. Annie Ape was designed to help parents discover what constitutes knowledge of the alphabet, how to determine readiness for learning, and to help them attain that goal. There are no pre-requisite skills beyond a commitment of time from the parent to the child. Read through the overview from beginning to end, at least once. It is good to have a general idea of what information is going to be presented and how best to use it. The overview is important. If it appears a bit overwhelming, at first, it will sort itself out as the strategy is put to use. After a while, it will flow logically and efficiently. Don't be surprised if you discover additional ideas for the use of the material. Annie supports any and all Kindergarten programs. Time Commitment Annie Ape asks for a commitment of time from the parent to the child. The commitment is a daily 20-30 minute period, for 90 days. The outcome of those 45 hours is a greater knowledge and understanding of the child's learning strengths. Follow the suggestions given in this manual, spending no more than 20 to 30 minutes a day. There are no formalized reading lessons to present. The question strategy that you need to develop the knowledge required for proficient reading is prepared for you.
