ADHD is a common, complex and yet often misunderstood condition, affecting children, adolescents and adults. It causes a wide range of difficulties with concentration, impulse control, hyperactivity, motivation and time awareness. This can often lead to school failure, expulsion, and emotional, behavioral and social problems. An estimated two per cent of the population suffers from ADHD. To ensure their effective treatment, three critical areas need to be addressed. Parents, teachers and professionals must become aware of the possibility of ADHD (symptoms can mimic other medical and environmentally related conditions, which can make accurate recognition difficult). Second, the reality of coping with ADHD in its many forms, both for individuals with the condition and those around them, must be acknowledged and understood. Finally, there is a need for a holistic approach to the assessment and management of ADHD to ensure the most effective resolution for individuals. The author gives an overview of the condition based on the broad internationally recognized approach to ADHD, which takes account of its biological as well as environmental elements. He discusses appropriate management guidelines, which include consideration of medication as well as psychosocial and educational strategies. The book aims to be a comprehensive and authoritative text on ADHD, its causes and management currently available in the UK. It provides a practical guide to the process of dealing more effectively with ADHD, from initial recognition to effective management strategies via assessment and diagnosis. It is intended for parents, teachers and other professionals to facilitate appropriate understanding and support for this distressing condition.

There is no other text that can inform, educate and involve so effectively about the needs of ADHD children in mainstream classrooms. I would recommend that it is included on reading lists for trainee teachers, and is promoted by Special Needs Co-ordinators in schools. - "Jane Spencer, De Montfort University " A remarkable story told with honesty, candour and real strength. It is powerful' - "Rt. Revd. Christopher Herbert, Bishop of St Albans " A fascinating and thought-provoking book written by the mother of an eleven year-old with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). This book is cleverly constructed and looks at ADHD from many perspectives. It follows a 22-hour expedition, but it is also a journey of discovery for Anna's family about how to best help their son. Peppered with humour, irony, laughter, pain, outrage, discussion and reflection, this book shows a way through the maze of ADHD, and provides a reader-friendly but challenging read.

In this groundbreaking and controversial book, behavioral neurologist Dr. Richard Saul draws on five decades of experience treating thousands of patients labeled with Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder—one of the fastest growing and widely diagnosed conditions today—to argue that ADHD is actually a cluster of symptoms stemming from over 20 other conditions and disorders. According to recent data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, an estimated 6.4 million children between the ages of four and seventeen have been diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. While many skeptics believe that ADHD is a fabrication of drug companies and the medical establishment, the symptoms of attention-deficit and hyperactivity are all too real for millions of individuals who often cannot function without treatment. If ADHD does not exist, then what is causing these debilitating symptoms? Over the course of half a century, physician Richard Saul has worked with thousands of patients demonstrating symptoms of ADHD. Based on his experience, he offers a shocking conclusion: ADHD is not a condition on its own, but rather a symptom complex caused by over twenty separate conditions—from poor eyesight and giftedness to bipolar disorder and depression—each requiring its own specific treatment. Drawing on in-depth scientific research and real-life stories from his numerous patients, ADHD Does not Exist synthesizes Dr. Saul's findings, and offers and clear advice for everyone seeking answers.
