325 Resources Although this list is by no means exhaustive, we have found these resources most useful, both for us as pediatricians and for the parents of children in our care. Older kids and young adults have given positive feedback as well. These days, most resources are web-based, although there are still some great books that we recommend here. General Resources The American Academy of Pediatrics HealthyChildren.org website is an excellent resource for parents, families, and educators working with children of any age from newborns to young adults. Featuring evidence-based guidelines and information, HealthyChildren.org is an excellent place to start for more information. www.HealthyChildren.org The American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Family Resources website is useful for parents of children with any emotional, mental health, or behavioral disorders. There are resources for families for all of the diagnoses we have discussed in this book. https://www.aacap.org/AACAP/Families_and_Youth/Family_Resources/ Home.aspx The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention “Learn the Signs. Act Early.” website provides developmental tracking tools for parents. https://www.cdc.gov/ncbddd/actearly/index.html ep Magazine provides practical advice, emotional support, and the most up-to- date educational information for families of children and adults with any sort of developmental difference. www.ep-magazine.com Quirky_Kids_final-pages.indd 325 Quirky_Kids_final-pages.indd 325 10/19/20 10:07 AM 10/19/20 10:07 AM
