Overview

The causes of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) are a matter of debate, but the problems that it creates can have a disastrous effect on a child's ability to learn, socialize, and lead a normal life. Directed at parents and teachers, this guide explains what the condition is, how it is diagnosed and what they can do to help the child in a positive and lasting way. It also addresses the needs of the adults, recognizing that they must first learn to deal with their own reactions and emotions. The treatment the resource advocates is aimed at enabling the child with ADHD to acquire techniques of self-control that will give him or her the strength to cope and which can be developed and refined through the years to adulthood. Drug therapy, the book stresses, should be considered as an effective complement to the measures which can be adopted by both home and school.
