The diagnosis and treatment of this apparently prevalent disorder has become increasingly controversial in recent years. This is a detailed but straightforward presentation of the current knowledge on attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. It will be welcomed by all those needing a basic understanding of the disorder and a reference point for making informed decisions on available treatments and courses of action. The book explores the questions and concerns of parents and teachers. Dr. Moghadam and six others describe the history of this disorder, its causes, prevalence, and diagnosis. Further chapters are on the use of drug therapy, behaviour management, educational issues, parenting and family life, and other approaches to the management of ADHD. Complications and ADHD in adolescents are also discussed.
