One of America's most trusted pediatricians outlines an effective, drug-free approach to treating children with Attention Deficit Disorder. Your child with A.D.D. can flourish-without drug therapy. That's the revolutionary and reassuring message that Dr. William Sears delivers in The A.D.D. Book. Dr. Sears, whose bestselling books, including The Baby Book and The Discipline Book, have established him as one of the country's most reliable authorities on parenting, joins forces with child psychologist Lynda Thompson, Ph.D., to provide all the information that you as a parent need to help your child with A.D.D. thrive. In The A.D.D. Book you'll learn what A.D.D. is and what it is not, how to tell whether your child has A.D.D., and how to increase your child's learning ability both at home and at school. Dr. Sears and Dr. Thompson outline effective behavior modification strategies that reach beyond the widely prescribed drug therapy to improve your child's cognitive abilities while reducing hyperactivity. Using real-life case studies and the results of the most recent scientific research, they offer guidelines for living with and helping your child with A.D.D., including: * Ways to improve your child's attention and motivation in the classroom * Tips for helping your child learn to handle frustration * Ways to increase parent-child communication and develop time-management techniques for the entire family * Advice on selecting the right professional help * How neurofeedback (using computers to increase attention skills) can help your child learn * How to know if your child needs medication and how to make the right decisions about using it Dr. Sears and Dr. Thompson take a positive approach to A.D.D. They believe that A.D.D. is a difference rather than a disorder, and they explain how you can make some of the behavioral and personality traits that are characteristic of A.D.D. work to your child's advantage. Their book is a clear, comforting, and uniquely comprehensive parents' guide to A.D.D.

My son has been diagnosed with ADHD and this book has helped me understand his condition and why he acts the way he does. It also made me realize that having ADHD does not mean that my kid is wrong but rather just different. It offers a lot of helpful tips for families to cope with ADD and ADHD without using drugs, which is the route we have gone and it's working out pretty well.
great author, great book.
item as described
I haven't read the whole thing yet, but the parts that I have read, have opened up my understanding and helped me to help my daughter. Creative ideas that are tested in the 'lab' of pediatric practice.
This is a great book. I would highly recommend for parents struggling with an A.D.D. child. It helps everyone understand how the child feels and what he/she is going through.
Very helpful I've had this book since my son was 10 and hes 14 now. Has a lot of advice.And Im still using it
Absolutely love this book. Easy to understand how a child with ADHD must feel and what can help daily. Buy this book!!!!
