Description

The last 10 years have seen major advances in the scientific understanding of ADHD and hyperkinetic disorder. This book builds on them to provide a practical, comprehensive and evidence-based approach to clinical work with these conditions and to similar problems in people with complex neurodevelopmental disabilities. It explains the scientific basis for understanding these conditions and gives practical step-by-step instructions on how to treat them. Multiple ways of intervening are examined. Several informative leaflets for parents and teachers are included. This book will be of interest to all professionals involved in treating ADHD and related problems: paediatricians, child psychiatrists, psychologists, head teachers and special-needs teachers, educational psychologists, and general, forensic, and substance abuse psychiatrists.show more
