Back to Normal : Why Ordinary Childhood Behavior Is Mistaken for ADHD, Bipolar Disorder, and Autism Spectrum Disorder
A veteran clinical psychologist exposes why doctors, teachers, and parents incorrectly diagnose healthy American children with serious psychiatric conditions.
Back to Normal is the authoritative examination of all the factors that contribute to the overdiagnosis and misdiagnosis of ADHD, autism-spectrum, and bipolar disorders in our nation’s children. Drawing on his extensive professional experience and current research, Gnaulati tells the stories of wrongly diagnosed children and shows both how and why schools, medical professionals, and well-meaning parents are erroneously categorizing psychological, temperamental, and behavioral issues as psychiatric disorders in developing children. Back to Normal offers both a social critique of our underpsychologized nation and a tool for parents to see the difference between serious conditions and behavioral disturbances stemming from developmental, familial, or social issues.
