The list author says: "Children with ADD / ADHD can be helped with symptoms of ADHD. In most cases lifestyle changes and practical measures, sometimes along with some non-pharmaceutical professional support, can help children to overcome the various symptoms of ADHD. This list represents some of the best books on this subject."
"Practical guidelines for parents and teachers on how to help children overcome symptoms of ADHD. Why do children develop ADHD symptoms? What can be done at home? What educational steps in school can help children? Do children really need medication? Children are medicated far too often in the public school system. Much can be done to help children without drugs."
"Interesting research from Joel Nigg, Ph.D., associate professor of psychology in Michigan State University. Excellent research demonstrating probably and possible causes of ADHD. Scholarly-type work/research."
"Wonderful work for parents to help them understand ADHD and especially to find their way through the maze of special education. The book tends to discourage medication in favor of educational remediation, therapy, when needed. Insightful work from a clinical psychologist."
"This book, by a child psychiatrist, demonstrates that not all physicians agree with the medical model of mental health. Rather, Dr. Scott Shannon believes that by not assigning a label (e.g. ADHD, bipolar disorder) he can more effectively treat his patients. One practical example Â take TV out of the childÂs bedroom. Now you are addressing a cause, rather than a symptom."
"This is an excellent reference for teachers. The only area I disagree with Sandra Reif is her assumption of the veracity of the medical model. Besides that, there is good information here for teachers."
