Reber
Differently wired : raising an exceptional child in a conventional world / Deborah Reber. Workman Publishing, [2018]
Description: “Today millions of kids are stuck in a world that doesn’t respect, support, or embrace who they really are–these are what Deborah Reber is calling the “differently wired” kids, the one in five children with ADHD, dyslexia, Asperger’s, giftedness, anxiety, sensory processing disorder, and other neurodifferences. Their challenges are many. But for the parents who love them, the challenges are just as hard–struggling to find the right school, the right therapist, the right parenting group while feeling isolated and harboring endless internal doubts about what’s normal, what’s not, and how to handle it all. But now there’s hope. Written by Deborah Reber, a bestselling author and mother in the midst of an eye-opening journey with her son who is twice exceptional (he has ADHD, Asperger’s, and is highly gifted), Differently Wired is a how-to, a manifesto, a book of wise advice, and the best kind of been-there, done-that companion. On the one hand it’s a book of saying NO, and how it’s time to say no to trying to fit your round-peg kid into society’s square holes, no to educational and social systems that don’t respect your child, no to the anxiety and fear that keep parents stuck. And then it’s a book of YES. By offering 18 paradigm shifts–what she calls “tilts”– Reber shows how to change everything. How to “Get Out of Isolation and Connect.” “Stop Fighting Who Your Child Is and Lean In.” “Let Go of What Others Think.” “Create a World Where Your Child Can Feel Secure.” “Find Your People (and Ditch the Rest).” “Help Your Kids Embrace Self-Discovery.” And through these alternative ways of being, discover how to stay open, pay attention, and become an exceptional parent to your exceptional child”– Provided by publisher.

This kit introduces young children to a variety of concepts, including shape, color and texture. It also assists in the development of muscular and eye-hand coordination. 3 years and up.

Lea
Mailbox
LEA mailbox game / [designed by Lea Hyvèarinen] Good-Lite, [20–]
Description: Used to assess visual perception of line orientation. Tests two components: information for the hand movements in the parietal lobe ; picture perception in the inferior temporal lobe. To observe the first function, the child is asked to drop a card through the slot of the LEA Mailbox Game. The child should demonstrate perception of the orientation of the slot by turning the card to the correct position before moving it half the distance to the slot (dorsal stream function). A ventral stream function can be observed through interactive play using the LEA Mailbox Game. If a child cannot visually perceive the orientations of lines, drawing them may be difficult, and drawing angles will make no sense. Includes instructions.
