Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Explains, in everyday language, what Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is, how it is diagnosed, and how this condition affects people throughout their lifetime. It outlines methods of developing and assessing teaching strategies that can help individuals with ADHD both at home and at school. Unlike other texts, this book takes a positive look at the disorder. Rather than trying to repress the characteristics of ADHD, the author advocates that ADHD individuals use their disorder to maximize attention span, improve social skills, harness impulsivity, and turn hyperactivity into periods of extreme productivity.

Book News Annotation:

Taking a somewhat different approach than most discussions of Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Cimera (U. of Wisconsin at Oshkosh) suggests that not only can children with ADHD flourish, but that they can also turn the symptoms to their advantage. He argues that battles to repress the symptoms by parents and teachers are not necessary and frequently unproductive. After presenting an overview of ADHD, he provides methods for addressing inattention, impulsivity, hyperactivity, and social skills. Next he discusses the development of broader strategies for teaching children, adolescents, and adults with ADHD and examines the development, implementation, and assessment of educational programs.
