"This book has been an invaluable resource in my clinical practice, and I welcome the publication of the revised edition. Incorporating the most current theories and techniques in the field, Dr. Bloomquist has shifted the focus away from pathology and toward appreciating the developmental pathways of each child. But the basic foundation remains the same: parents are in the best position to help their children and should be afforded the best strategies and opportunities to do so. This straightforward, easy-to-read, jargon-free volume is a practical and valuable resource for parents and professionals alike. The user-friendly framework, planning strategies, reproducible charts, and effective ways of measuring change help make this one of the most often used books on my desk."

"I like the way Dr. Bloomquist looks at children as 'struggling' rather than putting them into a box or labeling them because of a set of symptoms. So many times I have had to have my child tested, evaluated, and categorized, when all I wanted was to find solutions to problems. Dr. Bloomquist's very concise, step-by-step Success Plans help parents do just that. Many procedures in books sound easy to implement, but the ones in this book really are written with an understanding of parents' predicaments. Dr. Bloomquist suggests practical ideas that parents can readily execute and advises them to seek extra help when needed. I think this approach empowers parents."
