ADHD: Who's Failing Who? Understanding the impact of ADHD on our young people, schools and Society, Prosser, Brenton
4 Prosser, Brenton ADHD: Who's Failing Who? Understanding the impact of ADHD on our young people, schools and Society
Australia Finch Publishing 2006 1876451718 / 9781876451714 1st Edition Pictorial Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
214 indexed pages. The recent phenomenal rise in the diagnosis of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) in Australia, New Zealand and the US has created significant challenges for families, schools and communities - and, most of all, for the young people diagnosed with the condition. Author Dr Brenton Prosser's view is that if we ask only medical questions about ADHD we will get only medical answers - and a continuing focus on drug treatment. He encourages us to ask educational, social and political questions in order to understand and address the barriers to other treatments. Have we failed young people by allowing drug-based solutions to dominate? Including real-life stories of teenagers with ADHD as well as advice and ideas for parents and teachers, ADHD: Who's failing who? explains ADHD in a compassionate and challenging way and explodes many of the myths surrounding the condition. The impact of ADHD on learning is significant, so Brenton Prosser offers 100 helpful hints for classroom teachers. ADHD includes real-life stories of teenagers with ADHD as well as advice and ideas to help parents make informed decisions about ways to best support their child. There are two creases in the front cover and in the first leaf.
