Sourcebook for Children with Attention Deficit Disorder is written from a perspective of multidisciplinary intervention, and is full of practical suggestions and hands-on activities for management in the classroom, in one-on-one therapy sessions, and at home. Early intervention is the key to preventing later school failure and social problems; therefore, the book focuses on the child from birth to six years old. Unique to this book is the section on using computers with this population, including how to select effective software.
