Now in a newly updated edition, Thomas Phelan's All About Attention Deficit Disorder continues to be one of the most "reader friendly" introductions and explanations for parents, teachers and care-givers of Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD). Phelan covers symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment for ADD children and adults. Highly recommended for personal, professional, school and community library collections, All About Attention Deficit Disorder will provide information, tools, and emotional support needed by anyone dealing with a loved one, student, or patient with this difficult, biologically based, psychologically impacting disorder.

All About Attention Deficit Disorder should be given out in doctor's offices along with the diagnosis!
It's an excellent and easy to read resource for parents, teachers, and caregivers of any child who has ADD/ADHD characteristics. This book also includes fantastic information for adults who maybe didn't have the "label" as a child but can recognize the symptoms in themselves or a parent who can see the symptoms in themselves now that their child has a label.
I am a special education teacher, not a medical doctor, so I am not allowed to give out any medical or medication advice to parents in school based meetings.
This is the information I would share at those meetings if I could. The straightforward information in clear to understand language with a sense of humor to go with it is a must read!
I also highly recommend adding 1,2,3 Magic to your cart. It's the behavioral "instructional" manual that all children should have tied to their ankle when they come out of the womb. It's an especially helpful read with ADHD and other special needs children with a mental age of at least 2 years but it's a system that works with children of all ages.

This book isn't meant to replace a visit to your family physician, but to educate and inform parents so they can make the right decision. If your child has been diagnosed with ADD, this book will help you get a better handle on the disorder, help you understand what your child is going through, and help you help your doctor properly treat your child. If you suspect your child has ADD, but aren't ready to take your child to the doctor, this is a good first-step. Get All About Attention Deficit Disorder, read it, and if you feel your child meets the criteria for ADD, contact your family physician for an appointment.

I have ADHD...didn't figure it out and get diagnosed until I was 50 years old, but as a teacher and a parent of ADHD kids I'd have to say that Thomas Phelan is right on the money on this topic! He's easy to read and has great insight and solutions for situations we face. Too bad more people don't realize that ADHD is a treatable physical condition and too many children are punished for their symptoms because of ignorance of the facts. This is a really good book.

Purchased this book back in the late 90's when my son was diagnosed at age 6.
The doctor lays it out so that it's very easy to understand what your child is dealing with. I'm amazed that even today, the majority of people I talk to think that it's a discipline problem. They could not be more wrong. I have given this book away to several friends. It's been the best book for getting an understanding across in the simplest terms. Highly, highly recommend this book to start with!
