Classroom teachers, guidance counselors, school psychologists, and school administrators are quite familiar with students who have trouble paying attention, learning, staying organized, and managing behavior. These children may have signs of Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), a neurobiological condition that can be successfully managed and treated. Now, educators, parents and health care professionals can work together to provide help for these children so they won’t miss important learning opportunities in school!
Our knowledge of ADHD has grown tremendously in the past decade. The ADHD Handbook for Schools contains chapters to help readers fully understand ADHD, assessment procedures, strategies critical for improving student learning and behavior, and new advances in medical and non-medical treatments.
