Making Sense of Children’s Thinking and Behavior offers parents and professionals a tool for understanding children with neurological differences. These children have an atypical view of the world, unique to their particular disability, which can make their behavior confusing and, at times, challenging. Often, the child’s actions are misunderstood and, consequently, they are unfairly punished.

An individualized approach to understanding a child’s thought processes can help to resolve these problems. The authors’ Systematic Tool for Analyzing Thinking (STAT) offers such an approach. It provides a step-by-step method for understanding a child’s behavior by revealing the thought processes behind it. By viewing a situation from the child’s perspective, the root of the problem can be identified and one can then effectively address the difficult behavior. Case studies are used to describe the twelve common deficit areas, demonstrating to the reader how to apply the STAT in everyday situations.

This practical book is an invaluable resource for parents and professionals working with children with NLD, Asperger’s, HFA, PDD-NOS, and other neurological differences.
