Spotting The Tiger


This DVD narrated by Jamie Lee Curtis is a wonderful tool to help pediatricians, teachers and parents recognize anorexia. It was created as part of a project to help educate pediatricians (who are typically the first professionals to engage the illness - yet often miss the symptoms) recognize what they are dealing with. The series is also helpful to educate extended family members or friends who are trying to understand what is happening to your child. Our pediatrician did not recognize our son's anorexia for the serious disease that it was. He could have benefited from this DVD. I wish we could distribute this to all of the local pediatricians and educators in our area (and then get them to actually watch it).
