Paediatricians and family physicians see increasing numbers of children who are struggling in school. Children with School Problems: A Physician's Manual is the first Canadian book specifically tailored for the needs of physicians working with kids who have learning disabilities and other difficulties in the classroom.

This newly revised and updated edition covers areas such as child development, school readiness, diagnosing different types of learning problems (including data gathering, screening and assessment, and physical examination), management (medication, behavioural management, and educational interventions), and prevention (including literacy promotion).

Written and reviewed by developmental paediatricians from the Canadian Paediatric Society, Children with School Problems is filled with practical tools and resources that physicians—including paediatricians, family physicians, and residents—can use to diagnose and treat children with learning problems.

More information on the book, along with supporting resources, is collected in the Focus Issues section.
