Based on the American Academy of Pediatrics' current clinical practice guidelines for attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), this updated guide offers parents balanced, reassuring, and authoritative information on this challenging and often misunderstood condition. Written in clear, accessible language, the new edition features the latest information on ADHD medications and offers expanded sections on preschoolers and adolescents. A new chapter on advocacy, updates on special education services and laws, and the role of the medical home are also included. Among the common questions examined are How is ADHD diagnosed? What are today's best treatment options? and Will my child outgrow ADHD? The reference also addresses what schools can do to support children with the condition and offers ADHD management strategies that balance the roles of behavior therapy, medications, and parenting techniques.
