ADHD by Alan Train
Book DescriptionWhy do some children find it impossible to sit still, concentrate, complete a task or control their emotions? The causes of the increasingly recognised condition ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) are a matter of debate, but the problems that it creates can have a disastrous effect on a child's ability to learn, socialise and lead a normal life. Alan Train draws on many years' experience of working with emotionally fragile children to offer solutions based on acceptance that ADHD is part of the child's make-up. Writing for parents and teachers, he explains what the condition is, how it is diagnosed and what they can do to help the child in a positive and lasting way. He also looks at the needs of the adults, recognising that they must first learn to deal with their own reactions and emotions. The treatment he advocates is aimed at enabling the child with ADHD to acquire techniques of self-control that will give him or her the strength to cope and which can be developed and refined through the years to adulthood. Drug therapy, he stresses, should be considered as an effective complement to the measures which can be adopted by both home and school.
