Increasing numbers of parents grapple with children who are acting out without obvious reason. Revved up and irritable, many of these children are diagnosed with ADHD, bipolar illness, autism, or other disorders but donat respond well to treatment. They are then medicated, often with poor results and unwanted side effects. Based on emerging scientific research and extensive clinical experience, integrative child psychiatrist Dr. Victoria Dunckley has pioneered a four-week program to treat the frequent underlying cause, Electronic Screen Syndrome (ESS). Dr. Dunckley has found that everyday use of interactive screen devices a such as computers, video games, smartphones, and tablets a can easily overstimulate a childas nervous system, triggering a variety of stubborn symptoms. In contrast, sheas discovered that a strict, extended electronic fast single-handedly improves mood, focus, sleep, and behavior, regardless of the childas diagnosis. It also reduces the need for medication and renders other treatments more effective. Offered now in this book, this simple intervention can produce a life-changing shift in brain function and help your child get back on track a all without cost or medication. While no one in todayas connected world can completely shun electronic stimuli, Dr. Dunckley provides hope for parents who feel that their child has been misdiagnosed or inappropriately medicated, by presenting an alternative explanation for their childas difficulties and a concrete plan for treating them.When parents are reluctant to put tablets away for a fast, or when I discover that a new iPad is the source of a relapse after months of hard-won gains, my response is often: aThe iPad is the devil.a Of course the iPad is convenient.
