Product Details


“Stephen Camarata is the world’s expert on late-talking children, and one of the world’s experts on cognitive and social disorders of childhood. In addition to being a distinguished researcher, Camarata is known for his judicious evaluations of diagnoses and treatments of childhood disorders, many of which are closer to snake oil than solid science. In The Intuitive Parent Camarata mixes scientific judgment with common sense and a humane concern for the well-being of children and their terrified parents. This book is guaranteed to improve the welfare of children, protect the sanity (and wallets) of parents, and infuriate the quacks who prey on them.”
Steven Pinker, professor of psychology, Harvard University; author of The Better Angels of Our Nature

“In The Intuitive Parent, Dr. Camarata tells you to trust your judgment and do what comes naturally—intuitively—as a parent. As a pediatrician and a parent, I know it is important to do what he says: relax and answer your child’s amazing questions. Not only is it fun, but as Dr. Camarata explains so well, you are assisting healthy brain development.”
Dr. Ed McCabe, senior vice president and chief medical officer, March of Dimes

“Stephen Camarata, PhD and father of seven, has two important messages for worried parents: follow your child’s lead and enjoy the moment. This book is a welcome antidote to flashcards and tutors for two year olds.”
Erika Hoff, PhD, professor of psychology, Florida Atlantic University; author of Language Development
