Lorna Wing and Judith Gould, The National Autistic Society UK "This timely book is a must-read for parents, educators, mental health workers, and policy makers. They are brilliant and articulate, but very biased. For me, it is clear that in Montgomery and surrounding counties we need to do more to foster and support the nurturing and intellectually satisfying scholastic community these students crave and deserve.
I am quite curious about the authors other book and will likely read it. Bright Not Broken offers a new, creative, and positive way of seeing. If only the last two non fictions I read had the influence of this team - Quiet and Drive, they would have been incredible.
Where they are allowed to participate in the quirky way that works for them? The much of the educational system seems to view this as a paradox, but this book argues persuasively that Bright not broken is not. Drawing on painstaking research and personal experience, Bright Not Broken offers groundbreaking insight Bright not broken practical strategies to those seeking to help 2e kids achieve their full potential.
I do recommend the book to parents of autistic children, particularly if they are high IQ or "gifted," hence the 2E Twice exceptional label.
In addition, this valuable book addresses widespread misdiagnosis that has only heightened parents' Bright not broken. Also covered in depth is the educational systems lack of understanding on how to work with the "labeled" child. Too often, these children get lost in an endless cycle of chasing diagnostic labels and are never given the tools to fully realize their own potential.
Their stance seems to be that they're either not really disabled, or not really gifted. I also have other health conditions that DON'T relate to those issues, but I still have them, because having one condition does not necessarily negate the other.
The book details how the DSM and the education system are failing us, and argues for paradigm shifts in both. This book is clearly written and easy to slosh through. However, I'm not convinced that ADHD is a wholly invalid diagnosis.
Part of the problem was this book in audiobook form.
This is my first book trying to gather information on my 7 year old son who seems quite bright in areas of math, creativity and humor, but is also diagnosed with ADHD and HFA.
I feel like the authors wanted her name on the book to boost credibility and sales, which kind of bothers me.
