Step by Step Help for Children with ADHD

A Self-Help Manual for Parents

Jessica Kingsley Publishers
Raising a child with ADHD can be distressing and exhausting for the
whole family. But given the appropriate knowledge, and the right tools,
parents can intervene to manage their child's behaviour, leading to
improved relationships at home and, it is hoped, a more successful time
at school. This simple, flexible six-step programme is full of
tried-and-tested ideas for parents and professionals supporting
families of young children with ADHD. By practicing the techniques and
strategies, parents will gain confidence in their parenting and, over
time, will improve the child’s management of the condition. The
programme includes games that will help improve the child’s
attention, exercises to develop patience and tips for supporting the
child in successful self-organization. There are also plenty of useful
ideas for developing communication between parents and schools. Based
on research and extensive clinical experience, Step by Step Help for
Children with ADHD will help families to adapt their parenting to the
child, improving relationships and behaviours in the home and at play
group.
