Overview

Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (AD/HD) is the most common behavioural disorder affecting up to five per cent of children in the UK. This book provides a concise and comprehensive guide to educating children with AD/HD, offering a theoretical introduction to the disorder, and practical guidance for the classroom teacher on how to support children with this condition.


This practical guide is divided into three clear sections which focus on:


* the nature of AD/HD and its impact on the individual in school, as well as the ways in which it can be most accurately diagnosed
* the principles and practices of intervention, including specific educational interventions and behaviour management techniques
* a series of case studies illustrating the nature of AD/HD and its relationship with other difficulties making suggestions for school-based interventions.


Rooted in the experiences of practitioners who work with children with AD/HD every day, this book draws on up-to-date research evidence to challenge crude assumptions about AD/HD and argue that the best way to understand it is as a condition in which biological and environmental factors interact.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'The supportive way the book is written is likely to lead to a change in perception, by promoting adult understanding that many of the exhibited behaviours although irritating are unintentional. A book that would be of benefit to all those involved with pupils who display AD/HD' - Special Needs Information Press

'A treat to see this book finally in print. Along with explanations into why our children behave differently and learn differently from others, they give wonderful advice on how to help and get the best of our children. A simply must-have book for all schools.' - Caroline Hensby
