Publisher Comments:

The ultimate guide to ensuring school success for kids with attention deficits.

School Success for Kids With ADHD offers parents and teachers the support they need to ensure children with attention deficits build on their strengths, circumvent their weaknesses, and achieve to their fullest potential. With the growing number of children diagnosed with attention problems, parents and teachers need practical advice for helping these children succeed in school.

Topics include recognizing the causes and types of attention deficits and how they appear in the school context, requesting school evaluations and diagnoses, understanding the laws regarding students with special needs, advocating for these students in the school environment, and coaching students with attention deficits to success.

The authors also include a brief overview of research and medical perspectives on attention deficits, strategies used by teachers of children with ADHD, and helpful tools for parents and teachers to employ, such as homework checklists and self-advocacy charts.

Book News Annotation:

Two clinical psychologists and a K-12 teacher authored this text offering parents and teachers a clinical perspective on ADHD and strategies to manage its effect on study. Early chapters discuss how the disorder has been viewed historically and the importance of attention in academics. The authors go on to propose a multimodal management plan that involves assessment, medical monitoring, case management, educational supports, parental involvement, attention to the patient's diet, calming and relaxation techniques, and counseling, among other interventions. Also covered are best practices for teachers, support for ADHD patients in college, the role of technology in managing ADHD, and a review of alternative treatments parents can consider. Appendices contain supplementary tools for use with ADHD patients and a research summary. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
