Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is now one of the most common childhood disorders across the world, with a wealth of conflicting advice available everywhere you look. But most parents want only one thing: to find out what is going on with their child and how they can help them.

The ADHD Handbook draws on the most up-to-date research from around the world to present a comprehensive look at ADHD. Psychologist Stuart Passmore explains the different aspects of ADHD clearly, in a guide specifically designed for parents who want to better understand their children. He describes how the disorder is diagnosed, including the brain anatomy implicated in the disorder and common myths surrounding what causes it, so you no longer have to worry about every theory you hear.

Extensive information on the pros and cons of various types of medication, the most effective alternative therapies and psychotherapies, and the best parenting techniques will better inform you on how to get the right help for your child. Every case is different, so The ADHD Handbook aims to give parents the tools they need to cater to their child’s individual needs.

With accessible scientific explanations and comprehensive, practical guidance, this is the essential reference that every parent needs to help navigate their way successfully through the challenges posed by a child with ADHD.
