In its third edition, fully revised and updated, clinical psychologist Phelan (1–2–3 Magic) once again sets out all the tools, information, and strategies backed by the latest research to recognize, understand, and guide your child with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) effectively to success. In a simple, easy-to-read and -navigate format, Phelan describes the disorder, its symptoms and impacts on home and school, as well as on relationships. From here, parents can go on to explore the different types of ADHD; indicators predicting futures of children with it; the latest medications and treatments; and ways that school, counseling, social skills, and behavior can be managed and utilized correctly. Phelan also includes a section on adults with ADHD and what may be helpful for them when dealing with a diagnosis.
VERDICT Phelan's experience and honest commitment to helping those with ADHD and their families shines through with easily accessible information. Highly recommended for any library with developmental disorder and parenting collections.
