ABOUT THE BOOK
Attention deficit hyperactive disorder (ADHD) is the most common mental-health condition in children and is present in most countries around the world. Although there is an abundance of literature on ADHD with plenty of scientific information, this condition remains controversial and often under diagnosed.
This book is a go-to-guide for parents and teachers, providing up-to-date knowledge in a simple, easy-to-read format. It is filled with information your doctor would like to provide but is often unable to do in the limited appointment times available. This book also gives a framework and practical tips for how you can manage and advocate for your child in different settings, with or without medication. It summarises evidence to date, examines commonly held beliefs about ADHD and debunks myths.
Developmental paediatrician Professor Desiree Silva and ADHD coach Dr Michele Toner are both passionate about improving the lives of children with ADHD and their families and recognise the need for this practical guide.
