Helping Your Hyperactive Child: From Effective Treatments and Developing Discipline and Self-Esteem to Helping Your Family Adjust

by John F. Taylor
 

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Ten years ago Taylor, a psychologist whose child has attention deficit disorder (commonly called hyperactivity), wrote The Hyperactive Child and the Family . Now, in an updated and more inclusive parenting handbook, he retraces familiar ground, offering chapters on choosing medications, encouraging self-esteem, preventing misbehavior, providing positive play experiences, and identifying hyperactive symptoms. Taylor not only reanalyzes the Feingold Program, a food-based approach to treating hyperactivity, but also explores marital stress points, educational alternatives, and confrontations with physicians. He provides a wealth of information in the appendix, including The Taylor Screening Checklists, support groups, a list of ``common offending chemicals,'' and more. Readable, practical, and jargon-free, this comprehensive text unmuddles a disorder that has confused professionals and parents for decades. Highly recommended.-- Janice Arenofsky, formerly with Arizona State Lib., Phoenix
