Description

ADHD (attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder) is now recognized as one of the most common causes of learning and behavioural difficulties in school-aged children. Symptoms may include poor concentration, forgetfulness, poor organization, impulsivity, restlessness, poor social skills, learning difficulties, low self-esteem, and defiant behaviour. Despite growing awareness of ADHD among parents and health professionals, it is still widely misunderstood.

This second edition of ADHD: The Facts provides information on how ADHD is diagnosed, on conventional medical and alternative therapies, and on ways of helping children to improve their own behaviour, self-esteem, and academic results. Written by an experienced paedtiatrician, this book features practical advice to help parents understand their child's difficulties and how to overcome them. With detailed explanations of the cause of ADHD, its nature, and the treatments of the condition
that have proved effective over time, this new edition includes developments in the understanding of conditions that often co-exist with it, as well as the problems experienced by adults with ADHD.

ADHD: The Facts will be of invaluable assistance to parents of children with ADHD and to teachers, psychologists, speech therapists, occupational therapists, and doctors wanting an authoritative, up-to-date, and practical review of the condition.

Review quote

. . . remarkably comprehensive considering its small (pocket-book) format. Indeed, it could almost be sub-titled 'all you ever wanted to know about ADHD and were afraid to ask'. . . the same author has another title in the series, on dyslexia, and there is also a book on autism. I have to say that if the others are as good as this one, they certainly are worth buying and reading. * Nurturing Potential, Issue 11 * Review from previous edition . . . provides healthcare professionals, parents and teachers with an invaluable insight and understanding. * Community Practitioner *
