Overcoming ADHD: Helping Your Child Become Calm, Engaged, and Focused--Without a Pill (Merloyd Lawrence Book)by Stanley I Greenspan
Synopses & Reviews
This wise and informative guide applies Stanley Greenspans 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 Greenspans abiding belief in the growth and individual potential of each child.
From the author of Engaging Autism and The Child With Special Needs, an indispensible guide to overcoming attention and hyperactivity problems
