A comprehensive and balanced approach to diagnosis and treatment is provided in this guide to ADHD. With the number of children diagnosed with ADHD increasing each year, the book suggests that doctors and parents too often rely on drugs without discussing long-term effects or treating contributing factors. This fresh analysis acknowledges that external factors such as the quality of long-term childcare facilities, the frenetic pace of modern life, social disadvantage, and emotional disruption caused by divorce and family dysfunction all contribute to children's ability to learn, concentrate, and self-regulate behavior. Case studies and practical recommendations for working in partnership with parents and children with behavioral and attention problems are included. Beneficial for teachers, psychologists, therapists, childcare workers, counselors, social workers, and parents, this resource provides a deeper understanding of children with attention and behavior problems.
