Great Potential Press, Inc has published a 2nd edition of this important book by James Thurman Webb et al.: "Misdiagnosis And Dual Diagnoses Of Gifted Children And Adults: Adhd, Bipolar, Ocd, Asperger's, Depression, And Other Disorders." http://stfi.re/eovkakv

From the publisher page:

Gifted children and adults are frequently misdiagnosed, particularly those who are twice-exceptional (2e).

This much-anticipated second edition of a best-selling book is your guide to help prevent that.

Some of our brightest, most creative children and adults are misdiagnosed as having behavioral or emotional disorders such as ADD/ADHD, Oppositional Defiant Disorder, Bipolar Disorder, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, or Asperger’s Disorder.

Many receive unneeded medications and/or inappropriate counseling. How can this happen?

'In 2010, President Barack Obama spoke at the University of Michigan and said,

“We can’t expect to solve our problems if all we do is tear each other down. You can disagree with a certain policy without demonizing the person who espouses it…It undermines democratic deliberation." '
 
America has survived many difficult times. We must survive this period as well. #inauguration   #presidentialelection  
The US presidential inauguration is upon us. It comes at a time when our country is deeply divided. We are better than this.
