XZENOBIA A Fathers Guide to their child's Learning Disabilities

eBook (PDF), 125 Pages
(6 Ratings)
Price: $9.95
A systems view of Autism and Aspergers presented in easy and entertaining laymen's terms. This book also has an overview of what to expect from school boards and the medical establishment presented quite humerously. The Learning Disabilities addressed are Autism, Asperger Syndrome, Dyslexia, ADHD, Delayed Development Disorder, Attention Deficit ADD, Hyperlexia, and Sensory Sensitivity. Fathers in particular have a need to know "why?" this happened to their child when nobody gives an objective reason. This book reflects on this and strives to satisfy this need to know in a unique and positive way so that parents can get on to the task of helping and advocating for their children.

    Looks like there is a facebook page for the book Marcia. Maybe you can post a question there? It really is something else how it changes from beginning, middle and end isn't it. The ideas are just different and sensible. So calm and funny to.

    Thanks for the kind comments everyone. The reviews are great but they make the book sound more sophisticated to read than it is. It is written for the regular Joe.

    Very very interesting. I kind of picked this book out on a whim but found quite a lot I did not expect and have not seen any place else. A considerable and positve surprise not expected from the cover or description. They should change that. I have some questions about where to consider schooling my son who is a bit delayed, is there any way for getting touch with the author?

    Respectfully Jose Yo; you miss the point in your review of the book. I do agree with the praise but not for the reasons you give. In Xzenobia, first the definition for the Gestalt school of psychology is surreptitiously presented. Then an good example of Gestalt for the layman presented using a couple shopping at IKEA as allegory. I wish my psychology textbooks were so understandable, modest, memorable and complete. Then the justification with systems theory; all without looking like more than a simple explanation for a very complex topic. But then a leap; to the structure of consciousness itself! I wouldn’t have caught it at all myself except I am writing my paper on applying systems theory to the learning disabled as this idea goes back 50 years in psychology. My only complaint is not being able to assign more than 5 stars. Perhaps 8 would be more appropriate.

    It does show the differences between men and women by who will be interested in this book. My wife liked it too but it was definitely written for the fathers perspective. The understanding on what to expect from school boards and physicians etc was really an eye opener and presented in a way I will not forget.
