Attention Deficit Hyperactivity 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. Many books have been written for parents about ADHD, but most of them are quite scientific.

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 a doctor would like to provide but is often unable to do so 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 summarizes evidence to date for medication and alternative therapies, examines commonly held beliefs about ADHD, and debunks myths.

This book is written by a developmental pediatrician, Desiree Silva, and an ADHD coach, Michele Toner, both of whom are passionate about improving the lives of children with ADHD and their families. They both have over 20 years of experience in the field and recognize the need for this practical guide.
