Dr. Larry Silver's Advice to Parents on Attention-deficit Hyperactivity Disorder

Description

Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is estimated to affect between 10 and 30 per cent of all school age children in the United States. Larry B. Silver, an expert on ADHD and the author of "The Misunderstood Child", focuses on what parents can do to help their children with this disorder. ADHD is a disability that affects every aspect of a child's life. If undiagnosed and untreated, ADHD can seriously affect a child's academic performance, self-esteem, and relationships with family and friends. But how do you know if your child has ADHD? What causes ADHD? And what kinds of treatments are available? These are a few of the questions answered in this book. The chronically hyperactive, distractible, or impulsive child may be suffering from ADHD or from any number of other disabilities. How can you tell the difference? Dr Silver identifies some of the classic clues that parents should look for in deciding whether to seek professional help. He also offers practical guidelines on behavioural techniques that parents can successfully use. Treatment for ADHD is never simple. It may involve medication and a combination of education, individual and family counselling.
Dr Silver presents a thorough explanation of all available treatments, as well as a summary of the various types of professionals who deliver them.
