ADHD in the Schools: Assessment and Intervention Strategies


Product Description

Published USA, 2014 (3rd edition)
More than any other domain of major life activities, the educational sphere is devastatingly affected by this relatively common childhood disorder. Children with ADHD struggle in environments that demand restraint, goal-directed actions, single-mindedness of purpose and self-regulation. This text, now in its third edition, articulates techniques founded on science rather than educational fashion. Included is detailed information on medical treatments for ADHD, as well as the psychosocial ones favoured by educators.
