Books and Sites to Check Out From the NeuroPsych Eval

I'm sifting through 27 pages of my 8 year old's NeuroPsych Evaluation Report and I am both overwhelmed by all the information and relieved to finally have it.  This doctor gave us so much great information within the report and someone on my Rantings and Ravings Facebook page asked for the book recommendations.  I thought I would post it here so that I could easily provide links to GoodReads.com so that we all can read more about the titles and get other readers feedback.  He also included some websites to check out and I will post those here as well.  I am an information junkie so I am loving all these recommendations!!!  (**please let me know if a link doesn't work or if it directs you to the wrong page**)
