Practitioners seeking the most current advances in the field of ADHD and LD must often bridge the gap between research and practice. The Therapist's Guide to Learning and Attention Disorders provides that bridge through the authors, who are both researchers and practitioners with extensive experience in providing direct services to children and adults with ADHD and LD. Practitioners are often faced with the choice of reading research or consulting text that suggest strategies or techniques for serving children and adults with ADHD that are not base on research. This book provides practitioners a translation of research to practice in one source. This book provides practical forms, illustrations, and rating scales that can be readily incorporated into practice. The last chapter takes a fascinating look into the role of various practitioners twenty years into the future.

Children and adolescents with attention and learning disorders are being increasingly referred to clinicians for treatment.

The book begins with four chapters presenting an overview of the etiology and neuropsychology of these disorders, and their assessment by both traditional and innovative mean. The remaining 11 chapters provide practical educational interventions for both the therapy setting and school as well as behavioral interventions for home management. Information is provided on how attention and learning disorders affect lives beyond education to impact social behavior, emotions, and cognition. Specialized chapters focus on the nutrition of these patients, medication management and/or collaborative treatment with physicians, and how the therapist can help patients through career and educational transitions.
