The Mislabeled Child: How Understanding Your Child's Unique Learning Style Can Open the Door to Success, by Brock Eide, Fernette Eide

For parents, teachers, and other professionals seeking practical guidance about ways to help children with learning problems, this book provides a comprehensive look at learning differences ranging from dyslexia to dysgraphia, to attention problems, to giftedness. In The Mislabeled Child, the authors describe how a proper understanding of a child's unique brain-based strengths can be used to overcome many different obstacles to learning.

They show how children are often mislabeled with diagnoses that are too broad (ADHD, for instance) or are simply inaccurate. They also explain why medications are often not the best ways to help children who are struggling to learn. The authors guide readers through the morass of commonly used labels and treatments, offering specific suggestions that can be used to help children at school and at home. This book offers extremely empowering information for parents and professionals alike.

The Mislabeled Child examines a full spectrum of learning disorders, from dyslexia to giftedness, clarifying the diagnoses and providing resources to help. The Eides explain how a learning disability encompasses more than a behavioral problem; it is also a brain dysfunction that should be treated differently. (from the publisher)

Psychology Book Review for Parents and Teachers



Psychiatric labeling is controversial. Psychiatric labeling with children is even more controversial

Labels have a tendency to stick and can be harmful for a child's self-image. Parents need to be very cautious about pinning a label, or allowing a well-meaning professional apply a label to their child. Psychiatric labeling can immobilize a parent into taking any serious steps in self-help to assist their child towards improvement.


The system of labeling children is extremely flawed, according to this husband and wife medical team. Children are being inappropriately labeled, which leads to the next step of sometimes aggressive treatment with medication.

What can be done to help children and address their needs, without this flawed system. A book of interest to all in the medical profession and for some parents as well.

Another book with a similar theme is child psychiatrist, Scott Shannon's book based on his many years of experience, Please Don't Label My Child.

Shannon is not an anti-medicine campaigner, but, rather, feels that he has greater success in treating children with mental health disorders and difficulties without assigning a label, by simply addressing the problem. Both the Eide's and Shannon give convincing proof that the psychiatric system, as it is today, without labeling and drugging is an inadequate foundation for treating mental health disorders.
