In Daredevils and Daydreamers, Ingersoll--one of the foremost clinicians and researchers in the field--looks at what we've learned in a decade. From obtaining a good diagnosis through the most recent, cutting edge medical and psychological solutions offered, Ingersoll's examples and research have an immediacy missing from the other books in the field. In addition, she tackles a number of peripheral issues other books ignore such as the problem of the ADHD child in adoptive families, divorced families and step-families, and she handles "real-world" issues (like soiling and bed-wetting) that others disregard.
"ADHD has become a common part of the American vocabulary... the author examines what we have learned in the past decade about this disorder and how parents and teachers can effectively help and treat the ADHD child."
