The Bipolar Child

Book Review   by:rapscallion_jones     Original Authors: Demitri Papolos; MD and Janice Papalos
ª
 
This is the definitive book on bipolar disorder in children. Dr. Papolos writes in a way that parents can understand, but gives enough important inforamtion that the book would also be helpful to therapists, teachers and social workers. The book explains the ways in which bipolar disorder in kids is sometimes mistaken as ADHD, ODD or Depression. He outlines the etiology of this disorder, ways to properly diagnose these children and gives great detail on the intervention that are most likely to be helpful. He covers both medical and non-medical interventions. Also covered is how the disorder presents differently across the child's development, how to design IEP plans for these children and ways to work with insurance companies to make sure that services are funded. An invaluable book for parents, kids and professionals alike.
