This text makes a strong companion book for the university or collegiate level in education, psychology, social work, medical, and early childhood development fields. Students will learn the challenges faced by parents as they seek treatment for their children with ADHD and this will increase understanding, enhance compassion, while inform their practice with such families. It is a must have for those working in schools and community mental health. Educators interface with children and families on a daily basis who are diagnosed with or meet the criteria for ADHD. It is imperative that such personnel understand the challenges and stigma many parents experience and be well prepared in applying effective interventions to meet their needs.
