Greenspan's The Child With Special Needs, because our kids are at risk for Asperger syndrome.
Chansky's Freeing Your Child from Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder because our kids are at risk for OCD.
Kranowitz's The Out-of-Sync Child, because our kids are at risk for sensory integration disorders.
Sometimes I feel that I am in some weird science fiction movie. I have this beautiful happy baby who is a bit delayed, but not much, and in my hand is a piece of paper that says: Warning - your baby is at risk for: - obesity - Aspergers - OCD - mental retardation - sensory integration disorder - anger issues - the list goes on
