'We should not only be asking how our kids with ADHD are failing society, but also how society is failing these kids.' So writes Dr Brenton Prosser, author of this significant new book on Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.
ADHD : Who's failing who? aims to help parents, teachers, educational advisers and health professionals make informed decisions about how they can support children with ADHD. Dr Brenton Prosser, a research fellow in education, investigates the recent boom in ADHD diagnosis and the rise in drug treatments to ponder how an obscure medical diagnosis has become a well-known popular phenomenon. He proposes that if we ask only medical questions about ADHD, we will get only medical answers - and more drug treatment. Dr Prosser therefore examines the educational and social dimensions of ADHD as well.
In this way, the book offers a compassionate, balanced and holistic approach to understanding the disorder and helps us comprehend the impact of ADHD on our young people, our schools and society. This ground-breaking book provides a new view of ADHD as well as a wealth of advice and practical ideas. This book includes : an examination of myths and facts about ADHD; first-hand comments from teenagers with ADHD about their experiences at school; practical advice for parents; and a valuable section outlining 100 handy hints for teachers.
