The methods and ideas described here have been field-tested and do work. Sometimes the results are astounding, with rapid progress in a short period of time. This book represents the life work of many public school educators and other professionals who work daily with children who have special needs, and was developed by public school educators. * Did you know that, many children with ADHD are highly visually-oriented? As a result, they may respond to visual stimuli more than other children. Doing artwork can be stabilizing for many children and adults with ADHD. * Diet can make a difference. Cutting back on sugar and refined carbohydrates can positively affect the behavior and focus of some children. * Educational remediation is recommended before experimenting with medications. * Sleep disorders and child abuse can mistakenly be diagnosed for ADHD. * ADHD treated with stimulant drugs can sometimes result in symptoms of bipolar disorder. - Children need love and attention. - Children need good nutrition and a healthy breakfast daily. - Minimizing the time that a child spends watching TV and playing video games can yield positive results for many children. - "Green therapy," regular time outdoors, and with nature, is effective therapy for ADHD and childhood depression. ADHD and the Medical Model Many reputable child psychologists and child psychiatrists do not agree with the current, prevalent view of psychiatry based on the "medical model" of labeling and prescribing drugs. There are other models in mental health which more adequately and holistically describe the many interrelated factors of mental health, especially when touching on the mental health of children. __________________________________________ Reviews -----Practical measures and lifestyle changes with some additional resources that can help parents assist their children based on thorough and accurate research done on the subject.

This wise and informative guide applies Stanley Greenspan's much admired developmental approach to a very common disorder. In his distinctive and original view, ADHD is not a single problem, but rather a set of common symptoms that arise from several different sensory, motor, and self-regulation problems. As in his highly successful earlier books and in his practice, Greenspan emphasizes the role of emotion, seeking the root of the condition and rebuilding the foundations of healthy development. Overcoming ADHD steers away from the pitfalls of labeling, or of simply stamping out symptoms with medication, and demonstrates Greenspan's abiding belief in the growth and individual potential of each child.

THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER All-New Revised Edition Attention deficit disorder (ADD) is a national health crisis that continues to grow—yet it remains one of the most misunderstood and incorrectly treated illnesses today. Neuropsychiatrist Daniel G. Amen, MD was one of the first to identify that there are multiple types beyond just purely hyperactive or inattentive ADD, each requiring a different treatment. Now, in this all-new, revised edition, Dr. Amen again employs the latest medical advances in the field, including the largest brain imaging study ever completed on patients with ADD, to identify, examine, and demystify the 7 distinct types of ADD and their specific treatments. With updated recommendations for nutraceuticals and/or medications targeted to brain type, diet, exercise, lifestyle interventions, cognitive reprogramming, parenting and educational strategies, neurofeedback, and more, Dr. Amen’s revolutionary approach provides a treatment program that can lead sufferers of ADD to a normal, peaceful, and fully functional life. Sufferers from ADD often say, “The harder I try, the worse it gets.” Dr. Amen tells them, for the first time, why, and more importantly how to heal ADD. From the Trade Paperback edition.

It is now possible for concerned parents to treat their child’s attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) without medication. This book shows them how. Written by a supervising psychologist who specializes in child behavioral issues, Parenting Your Child with ADHD presents a groundbreaking program for parents seeking to reduce their child’s inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity and strengthen his or her capacity for self-reliance and cooperation. This unique program promotes positive ways of interrelating and shows parents the five main ways they may have unwittingly reinforced ADHD symptoms in the past. Far from encouraging parents to strictly manage ADHD children, this approach promotes independence in kids so that less discipline and surveillance is necessary. Specifically, this book helps parents promote cooperation by phrasing their requests in specific ways, reduce pressure on their child, and acknowledge the child’s preference as a way to make cooperation a more attractive choice to him or her. Parents learn to resolve problems related to messiness, inappropriate silliness and intrusiveness, chores and helping family members, coordinating schedules, sneaking and stealing, noise and yelling, and overreacting. The second part of the book moves on to issues that take place outside the home, such as shopping excursions, family outings, and travel. Finally, parents learn ways to increase their child’s independence and cooperation with schoolwork and compliance in the classroom environment. The child learns the value of being knowledgeable without the motivation of punishment or gift rewards.

This children's book about one family's experience with ADHD helps kids, their parents, teachers and others understand why they can't sit still, talk too much, have difficulty following directions and paying attention. The book includes "Parent's Corner", an ADHD resource section. About the story: As a single parent, Earnest Williams Jr. set boundaries & cultivated a home environment that taught Justin right from wrong. Still, Justin's behaviors perplexed his dad. Justin was interrupting his class. At first, typical teacher punishment was rendered with no consequences deterring Justin's happy-go-lucky attitude. Quickly, he was known throughout the school, labeled and ridiculed by students. The letter finally arrived requesting a parent-teacher conference. "I took off work and spent the day in Justin's classroom," said Mr. Williams. "My concern for Justin overrode my amazement at Justin's behavior during the school day. I was equally devastated when the teacher recommended to have my son tested for ADHD," Mr. Williams said. Mr. Williams sought to find help for Justin as possible. He had to educate himself about ADHD after test results confirmed his son's disorder. "Come to find out thousands of boys and girls sit in classrooms across the nation with the same thing Justin has," said Mr. Williams. Most often the boys are more frequently diagnosed due to their overt activity. Your kids will enjoy this book and gain some relief from their behaviors.
