Description

This reassuring guide explains prescribed ADHD medicines for children in clear, everyday language. Based on questions the author has received from countless families in his work as a Consultant Psychiatrist, the expert information in this book answers the most pressing questions a parent will have about ADHD medicines: how they work, what they do, what is available and how to talk about them to your children.

This book sheds light on why not all medicines are easily available, the differences between certain medications and their level of effectiveness, all based on scientific evidence. This information will support parents in discussions with medical professionals, explaining the practicalities and demystifying the terminology around medication and treatments. The book also provides insights into the decisions behind prescribing certain medicines and how they should be taken. Armed with this guide, parents - as well as teachers and others working with kids with ADHD - can feel confident and assured when their child is prescribed treatments for ADHD.

Reviews

'Everything you wanted to know but were afraid to ask - this book provides the answers. Professor Peter Hill, an internationally recognised expert in the field, sits down with parents/carers and covers everything they want to know about pharmacological treatment for their ADHD child.'
- Professor Susan Young, Registered Practitioner Clinical and Forensic Psychologist, BSc, DClinPsy, PhD, CSci, AFBPS

'The absolute 'go to' book for parents and young people wishing to understand the facts about medication for ADHD. Clear, practical and honest, it is no surprise that Professor Hill has written this brilliant, step by step, conversational yet authoritative guide about ADHD treatment. A book designed to both dip into and read cover to cover. In the 20 years I have worked with families of children and young people with ADHD, this is the book I have longed to be written, and Professor Hill is the expert I hoped would author it. His experience, manner and ability to convey complex issues simply will ensure this book becomes a family compendium.'
- Valerie A Ivens, ADHD REACH Coach
