From the Inside Flap

"How Can I Help My Child with ADHD?"

With this fully realized second edition of the classic guide, Dr. Larry Silver addresses the subjects all parents wonder about when they suspect their child has attention deficit hyperactivity disorder:

What causes ADHD? What signs should I look for?

How can I make sure my child is diagnosed correctly?

Could my child have a learning disability, too?

What's the latest information on medications and other treatments?

What controversial treatments should I watch out for?

What should I tell my child's school, and what should they be doing?

What legal issues do I need to understand to get my child the right help and protect his or her rights?

How can I handle behavior problems?

How can I help my whole family cope with the situation?

Dr. Silver's warm, thoroughly practical guide will give parents, teachers, and others the support they want and the answers they need.

This was one of the first books that I read after discovering that my daughter had ADHD and also LD. I found Dr. Silver's book very thorough and very readable. I particularly liked and appreciated the chapter on dealing with ADHD in the family. So many of the other books seem to focus solely on school and homework issues when ADHD effects all aspects of a child's life.
I highly recommend this book to any parent with questions about ADHD and related issues.

I purchased this book for personal needs as I struggle with my son with ADHD. I wish for him to be successful and be able to function in society. This book gave me additional perspectives and insight. My son cannot communicate well with me so I am constantly searching for resources that can "talk" to me about what to do.

I bought Dr. Silver's book on the recommendation of my daughter's pediatrician. I found it to be quite detailed and well-researched, but it was excruciatingly dry and clinical. I am usually a voracious reader, but I had trouble getting through this book. It's an important reference book if you are doing detailed research, but it's probably not the first book you should tackle after you learn your child has ADD. In my opinion, a better "first book" would be "Driven to Distraction" by Edward Hallowell et al.
