A quirky child experiences difficulty fitting in and connecting with others usually due to an interpersonal style or behaviour that stands out from other children. Maybe they are obsessed with a topic of interest or spend excessive hours a day reading, playing video games or playing with just one toy. These children are not so far afield as to fall on the autism spectrum but they are unique and their behaviour is not addressed in typical parenting books.

This book defines quirky markers and offers strategies for parents to understand their children's brains and behaviour; to know what is developmentally appropriate and what isn't; to understand how to reach their kids; and to help facilitate their social functioning in the world.

It will calm the hearts and minds of parents who worry that their child doesn't fit in and offer hope to parents who need strategies to support their quirky child's overall development.
