About this title


Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) affects approximately five percent of American school-age children. In a classroom of thirty, it is likely that at least one child will have ADHD. Symptoms include extreme levels of hyperactivity, inattention, and disruptive behavior. A Harvard University study published in September 2004 reported that students with ADHD are less likely than their non-ADHD peers to complete high school and less likely to attend college. The study found that on average those adults with ADHD have household incomes that are about $10,000 lower for high school graduates and $4,300 lower for college graduates, compared with those who do not have ADHD.

Understanding Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder is a concise, clearly written overview of the condition's symptoms and the range of possible treatments.

Chapters explain:

How certain behavioral patterns can be misdiagnosed as ADHD

How early diagnosis and treatment of the condition is critical

How the various forms of the condition affect a child's psychology and socialization

How parents can help to address the condition effectively and supportively

Understanding ADHD provides useful, up-to-date information on a condition that can be treated with early diagnosis and intervention. The book will prove useful to professionals and parents seeking a better understanding of children and childhood development.
