MISDIAGNOSIS AND DUAL DIAGNOSIS OF GIFTED CHILDREN AND ADULTS
ADHD, Bipolar, OCD, Asperger's, Depression, and Other Disorders (2nd edition)

Authors James T. Webb, Edward R. Amend, Paul Beljan, Nadia E. Webb, Marianne Kuzujanakis, F. Richard Olenchak. and Jean Goerss write about gifted children and adults misdiagnosed as having behavioral or emotional disorders such as ADD/ADHD, Oppositional Defiant Disorder, Bipolar Disorder, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, or Asperger's Disorder.

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 behavioural 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 counselling. How can this happen? Physicians, psychologists, and counsellors often are unaware of characteristics of gifted children and adults that mimic pathological diagnoses. James T.  Webb, Edward R. Amend, Paul Beljan, Nadia E. Webb, Marianne Kuzujanakis, F. Richard Olenchak. and Jean Goerss guide parents and professionals to distinguish between behaviours that are pathological and those that are “normal” for gifted individuals.
