Book CoverA Toss of the Dice: Child Development from a Pediatrician's Perspective, Natasha T. Hays MD

This book was written to educate, interest, and inspire doctors, teachers, parents, and health professionals who work with children with developmental disabilities. The book is written in anecdotal style, using patients from the author's developmental pediatric practice to illustrate the various challenges that children with different types of special needs face. Each chapter discusses a different developmental issue; for example, autism, mental retardation, genetic syndromes, cerebral palsy, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, mood disorders, and giftedness. Medical information and treatment options are also included, as are references and footnotes for the reader who wishes to delve further into a particular topic discussed. The book is intended to be written in a style comprehensible to the general public but also of interest to the more medically sophisticated reader. The book also has a section of books and movies that are relevant to a variety of disabilities, so that parents and their children can learn more about a disability in an enjoyable way. [Buy Me]
