Format: Paperback
Dr. Wachtel, while providing a well-informed and knowledgeable perspective on ADHD, brings to the table the additional gift of compassion. This book would be of interest to anyone curious about ADHD, but it clearly speaks to those most concerned: parents who are dealing with the ways in which they can help to give their child the most happy and productive life. Dr. Wachtel explores not only the technical aspects of the disorder which seems to be on the tip of everyone's tongue nowadays, but treats the situation of a child with ADHD with respect, attempting to understand the ramifications of and possible solutions for the everyday situations one with this problem can find themself in. This book is a good first step for a parent attempting to inform themselves in order to work with both their child and the medical profession to find solutions.

Format: Paperback
The Attention Deficit Answer Book is one of the best resources I have come across for parents of children with ADD and ADHD. It demystifies the disorder clearly and concisely, and it is written in an upbeat and positive manner. Dr. Wachtel provides parents with clearly outlined advice and strategies for finding the right approach to treating their children, both medically and behaviorally. A must read for all parents of children with ADD and ADHD!
