Describes the spectrum of ADHD, the common difficulties faced by parents, and suggests solutions.


Realistic and optimistic, this book is the ideal source of information and advice for parents and professionals who are trying to keep up with children who are living without breaks.

The author describes the spectrum of ADHD, the co-occurring symptoms, and common difficulties that parents face. The rest of the book focuses on solutions based around four rules.

Rule #1 is keep it positive: punishments can change behaviour, but only positive approaches can improve attitude.

Rule 2# is keep it calm: it’s difficult to think clearly when you are feeling overwhelmed.

Rule #3 is keep it organised: this rule relates particularly to the child’s school life.

Rule #4 is to keep doing Rules 1 to 3.

Finally, Dr. Kutscher discusses the role of medication in treating ADHD. The concluding chapter summarises the information covered and can also be read as a complete, freestanding text. Useful checklists and further reading recommendations are also included.
