Navigating Multiple Child Diagnoses, with Dr. Thomas Brown

It's not unusual for bright and quirky kids to receive multiple diagnoses. Decoding the puzzle of diagnoses can take patience and expertise.

If you feel overwhelmed and confused as to how to address these multiple challenges and where to start, you are definitely not alone.

Listen as Dr. Thomas Brown, former professor at Yale and Director of the Brown ADHD Clinic, helps us understand where to begin.

Take a listen . . .



Do you work with a clinician that "gets" the bright and quirky brain? If so, please share in the comments!

    I live in Austin, TX. My daughter is diagnosed ADHD, SPD and Anxiety. We have had good success with “Spectrum Services” for behavioral strategies and really understanding the complexities of my daughter and putting it all in a positive, helpful light. Our Psychologist, Dr Kristen Trocin can recommend strategies specific to my daughter’s uniqueness, even though Dr T is very well trained in Spectrum disorders.

    There are 2 exceptional people who stand out who understood my son’s the 2e brain so well:

    1- OT who specializes in fine motor skills and even creative writing. My son went from dreading the act of writing to enjoying all the excercises he was given for homework. The company is called Scribbles2Script (based in Phoenix, Arizona). But, don’t let the name limit your thinking, they do vision therapy, sensory motor integration, etc.

    2- A middle & high school teacher who was working for a private online school called Well-Trained Mind Academy. He worked so well with my son and was able to take my son from his “meltdown” moods to being productive and thriving. He was available for private summer tutoring and it was well worth our time & money: Mr. Thomas Hummel.
