Overview

Children and adolescents with attention and learning disorders are being increasingly referred to clinicians for treatment. Whether the primary disorder or a comorbid condition to other disorders, treating the child or adolescent with attention and learning problems can present special challenges to the clinician. Therapist's Guide to Learning and Attention Disorders is a comprehensive and practical guide to better understanding these disorders and identifying empirically-based therapeutic interventions.

The book begins with four chapters presenting an overview of the etiology and neuropsychology of these disorders, and their assessment by both traditional and innovative mean. The remaining 11 chapters provide practical educational interventions for both the therapy setting and school as well as behavioral interventions for home management. Information is provided on how attention and learning disorders affect lives beyond education to impact social behavior, emotions, and cognition. Specialized chapters focus on the nutrition of these patients, medication management and/or collaborative treatment with physicians, and how the therapist can help patients through career and educational transitions.

Therapist's Guide to Learning and Attention Disorders provides practical forms, illustrations, and rating scales that can be readily incorporated into practice.

Audience: Clinicians treating children and adolescents.
