Medical Treatment of ADHD: A Practical Guide for Clinicians, Counselors, and Parents (Paperback)
This practical and easily navigable book covers the gamut of issues that need to be understood to provide excellent medical care for those with ADHD.

Based on clinical conversations with patients with ADHD and their families, this book provides concise, useful, up to date information of a practical nature for most, if not all of the problems, associated conditions and questions that arise when an individual has concerns about ADHD. Treatments discussed include a thorough review of medication options, with expected results and side effects, as well as other recommended treatments including a variety of therapeutic modalities, and a review of less commonly considered but important interventions regarding general health, sleep, diet, exercise, and school interventions.
Readers will gain an understanding of what ADHD is, practical reviews of the literature that will help in discussion with patients and their families the importance of intervention, and all the resources and options available to provide the best treatment strategies for anyone who has ADHD as well as the commonly associated conditions.
