ADHD in Children and Adolescents
Compact and authoritative guidance on evidence-based treatment for ADHD in children and adolescents
Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a common childhood disorder that can have serious consequences for academic, emotional, social, and occupational functioning. When properly identified and diagnosed, however, there are many interventions for the disorder that have established benefits. This volume is both a compact “how to” reference, for use by professional clinicians in their daily work, and an ideal educational reference for practice-oriented students. The most important feature of this volume is that it is practical and “reader friendly”. It has a similar structure to others in the series, and is a compact and easy to follow guide covering all aspects of practice that are relevant in real life in the assessment and management of ADHD across the life span. Tables, relevant case studies, and marginal notes assist orientation, while suggestions for further reading, support groups, and educational organizations are provided for individuals and professionals.
