Introduction (back cover) : Researcher and Author turns his attention to the second childhood and applies his experience in treating children with learning and behavioral problems to those potentially experienced with ageing.
The full extent of the postnatal development of the brain has only very recently been fully appreciated and its demise can in many ways be viewed as a reversal of this process.
Here Robin Pauc describes how the human brain grows , develops and matures and with ageing, the principle conditions that can afflict the elderly.
The carer will learn how to recognize potential problems. Understand the cause and nature of the most common disorders. Come to realize the importance of diet, supplementation, exercise, having a time frame , and that for the human brain to survive it needs love.
At least one child in five experiences some form of learning difficulty, however, learning difficulties as we understand them do not exist—they are not diseases, just symptoms. These symptoms never appear alone and are treatable and avoidable. Here, an expert in child neurology approaches learning difficulties of childhood—including dyslexia, ADD, OCD, ADHD, dyspraxia and Tourette’s syndrome—from a truly groundbreaking perspective. All human babies are born prematurely and develop special, new brain cells four months after birth. Every human’s development in the womb and particularly in these early stages of life can, therefore, be affected by developmental delay, which can blight childhood and marginalize a child at school. Since our brains continue to grow, however, the symptoms can also be treated. This book explains the background to human developmental delay and offers advice on how to get the best assessment for your child and an explanation of what the examination must include; the effects—good and bad—of certain foods on the brain; exercises and computer programs that you can use to expand your child’s neural function; and case histories of children on whom this plan has worked. In the single biggest breakthrough in the history of learning difficulties, this guide explains the cause of developmental delay syndromes using simple, easy-to-follow tips to show how to greatly reduce the risk of a child suffering from them, and gives advice on what can be done to treat those children that do.
Dr. Robin Pauc is a specialist in child neurology and runs his own private practice. He is the author of The Brain Food Plan.
Nutrition and exercise plans to help all children achieve optimum health.
In his groundbreaking book Is That My Child? Robin Pauc showed parents a revolutionary new way of understanding and treating their children’s learning difficulties. Now, in the follow-up book Is That My Child? The Brain Food Plan, Robin Pauc explains the vital importance of diet and exercise in helping children to overcome these conditions.
Through straightforward, practical advice, Robin Pauc, with nutritionist Carina Norris, explains how simple changes to your child’s lifestyle can have a massively positive impact on their health and their ability to overcome learning difficulties.
Including practical diet and exercise workbooks, the book explains:
- What learning difficulties are
- Why healthy eating is important
- How exercise targeting specific areas of the brain can help
- How combining a healthy diet and exercise plan can benefit all children as well as helping overcome learning difficulties
The Brain Food Plan will tell you everything your child needs to maintain optimum health and will help all children to be the best they can.
The new book from Robin Pauc, the fourth in the series of “Is That My Child?” gives a cutting edge, fascinating insight into the science behind parenting.
From falling in love to marriage, and from childbirth to tolerating troublesome teens – this easy-to-follow text takes readers through the chemical changes underlying all the major milestones of family life.
“In Mindful Parenting (a parent-thesis) best-selling author and researcher Robin Pauc looks at the postnatal development of the brain and the potential challenges this poses to parents. However, before considering the impact that a child makes upon the lives of their parents he also considers why we are attracted to certain people and not others and why indeed we fall in love. In considering the establishment of the family he looks in depth into the history of the individual members of the family unit and the effects such factors as the location of the family home and income have upon the functioning of the unit. An easy to follow questionnaire allows the reader look subjectively at their life situation and where possible make changes that will impact favourably upon the every day family life. Issues with both the parents and children with learning and behavioural disorders are addressed sympathetically and case histories are presented to demonstrate the effectiveness of appropriate interventions.
This fourth book in the series by Robin Pauc provides a mirror into which anyone can look to see their current life situation – the point on the line of history where it is bisected by their own biography – it provides an explanation as to why children do what they do and when things go wrong, why the particular problem arose and more importantly what you can do to change things. This book empowers parents by providing a knowledge of the postnatal development of the brain in a format that is easily digested and yet contains the latest cutting-edge neurology that few people on the planet are aware of”.
Is That My Child? is now available in Arabic.
At least one child in five experiences some form of learning difficulty, but:
- Learning difficulties as we understand them DO NOT exist
- They are not diseases just symptoms
- These symptoms never appear alone
- They are treatable and avoidable
In this must-read volume for all parents, would-be parents and educators, Robin Pauc, an expert in child neurology, approaches learning difficulties, including Dyslexia, ADD, OCD, ADHD, Dyspraxia and Tourette’s syndrome of childhood, from a truly ground-breaking perspective. All human babies are born prematurely and develop special brain cells four months after birth in the newly discovered process of bpoptosis. Every human’s development in the womb and particularly in these early stages of life can, therefore, be affected by developmental delay, which can blight childhood and marginalize a child at school. Since our brains continue to grow well into adulthood, however, the symptoms can also be treated.
Is That My Child? explains the background to human developmental delay and contains:
- Advice on how to get the best assessment for your child and an explanation of what the examination must include
- The effects – good and bad – of certain foods on the brain
- The use of exercise in the management of developmental delay
- Exercises and computer programs that you can use to expand your child’s neural function
- Case histories of children on whom this plan has worked
In the single biggest breakthrough in the history of learning difficulties, Is That My Child? explains the cause of Development Delay syndromes, uses simple, easy to follow tips to show you how to greatly reduce the risk of your child suffering, and gives advice on what can be done to treat those children that do.
