ADHD has been a controversial issue over the last few decades but in child psychologist Glen Stenhouse's opinion, based on his 15 years of clinical experience, this should not be so. It is estimated that about five per cent of children have a personality type known as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, or ADHD. These children are active, impulsive, impatient, enthusiastic, demanding and exhausting to parent - and extremely likeable. Does My Child Have ADHD is for parents wondering whether their child (usually their son) has this particular personality type. Glen Stenhouse describes the characteristic traits and behaviours of the ADHD personality, both in children and adults; explains the challenges that ADHD children face at school; then explains how their behaviour can be managed at home and at school to bring out their very best. The great news is that ADHD children who are well managed by parents and teachers can - and do - grow up to become responsible, high-achieving, happy and fulfilled adults.
