Ineffective Homeschooling in a Child with a Learning Disability
CASE: Charles is a 10-year-old African-American male who presents to the Developmental Behavioral Pediatrics Clinic for evaluation of his learning. His primary care provider (PCP) was concerned that his developmental delays were negatively affecting his ability to engage in his homeschooling curriculum and also that his mother seemed unaware of the severity of his delays. Neuropsychological evaluation had been recommended by the PCP several times in the past, but the family declined. At one point, the PCP had considered potential child protective services (CPS) referral for medical neglect because of missed appointments ...

General Cognitive Ability as an Early Indicator of Problem Behavior Among Toddlers in Foster Care
Conclusion: An increased number of toddlers in foster care displayed clinically significant levels of problem behavior, further demonstrating that these children are an extremely high-risk group. The association between general cognitive ability and change in problem behavior highlights the importance of early developmental screenings, which may help identify children at greatest risk of problem behavior and most in need of preventive intervention efforts.

Maternal Feeding Practices, Health Cognitions, and Children's Eating Styles and Weight Status
Conclusion: Self-efficacy and perceived benefits relate to maternal feeding practices and eating styles of the child. However, more perceived benefits of a healthy lifestyle were associated with inadequate feeding practices. Therefore, interventions targeted at mothers to reduce child overweight should focus not only on reinforcing perceived benefits of a healthy lifestyle but also on how the mother can translate her attitudes into adaptive parenting to achieve the desired health outcomes.

Young Children With Gender Nonconforming Behaviors and Preferences
ABSTRACT: Background: There is growing awareness and exposure in both the medical community and the lay media about the characteristics and complex needs of individuals who believe that their gender identity does not match their birth sex. Despite research and lay publications about teens with gender dysphoria and those who identify as transgender, little guidance is available regarding young (prepubertal) children with questions about their gender identity. Although many terms are used to describe these children, we have chosen to describe them as “gender nonconforming” (GNC). Objective: Primary care an...
