The ADHD Update

Understanding Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder

Series: Disease Update

By Alvin Silverstein, Virginia Silverstein and Laura Silverstein Nunn

What is ADHD? What are the symptoms? How are the symptoms treated? Learn about this common behavioral condition that causes problems in three main areas: inability to focus or pay attention (inattention), being overly active (hyperactivity), and acting without thinking first (impulsivity). The disorder is most often identified in school-age children, but many of them will continue to have the condition as adults. The book includes practical sidebars and chapters highlight individuals who struggle with the disorder. Because ADHD affects so many people’s lives, this book is a must-have for every young adult collection.

"There is also an excellent section which explains the three types of ADHD.

It also offers their parents, teachers, and peers information about the workings of a brain with ADHD."
