The only book that covers the multiple ways in which ADHD is complicated by other psychiatric and learning disorders in both children and adults, ADHD Comorbidities: Handbook for ADHD Complications in Children and Adults features comprehensive, research-based information on ADHD and its full range of coexisting syndromes. Contributing researcher-clinicians, familiar with the complications that additional disorders pose, summarize in accessible language what is currently known about ADHD and its comorbidities, from preschool age to adulthood. These authors describe how ADHD leads to different profiles at different stages of development and how to adjust treatment strategies for both ADHD and additional disorders to reduce the impairments resulting from their combination. The book offers a new paradigm for understanding ADHD, viewing it not as a simple behavior disorder but as a complex developmental impairment of executive functions in the brain. This important handbook gives developmental context to ADHD by describing how symptoms at preschool onset differ from those of older age at onset. Clinicians will find practical help for patients whose ADHD appears in conjunction with 11 other syndromes -- from mood disorders to developmental coordination disorder -- and acquire valuable guidance on adapting and adjusting medications and other interventions to optimize treatment effects for the wide diversity of complex cases that embody ADHD.
Completely updated and expanded, Putting on the Brakes, 3rd Edition continues to be the go-to resource for kids with AD/HD. This essential guide — celebrating its 20th year in print — is loaded with practical ways to improve organization, focus, attention, time management, and scheduling, as well as studying and homework skills. Importantly, kids will also find strategies for making friends, controlling emotions, and being healthy. Putting on the Brakes gives kids with AD/HD the tools they need for success in and out of school and a plan to manage all types of attention disorders. From the Introduction to the 3rd Edition: Many things have changed over the last 20 years. Magination Press (an imprint of the American Psychological Association) acquired the title and through the years encouraged us to keep the book up-to-date as AD/HD developed into a better-understood disorder. Other things have changed as well, particularly with respect to the diagnosis and treatment of AD/HD. More children than ever are being diagnosed. The last Centers for Disease Control report from 2007 indicates that, according to their parents, 9.5 percent of all children have had an AD/HD diagnosis. That represents approximately 5.4 million children. Newer long-acting medications (both stimulants and non-stimulants) are now available to treat AD/HD. Teachers are better trained to recognize the impact of AD/HD on children in the classroom and to provide effective intervention. Counselors and therapists who treat children with AD/HD are able to provide important services to them and their parents. Coaching and other cognitive–behavioral therapies have been introduced as treatments for AD/HD. However, as we think back through all this, we realize that much remains the same. Kids still need to learn about their AD/HD, how it affects them, and what they can do to take control of their symptoms, emotions, and academic performance to ensure success. Kids need straightforward explanations and reassurance that AD/HD can be managed. Kids need to know that they are not alone. Kids with AD/HD are the reason we wrote this book in the first place and they continue to motivate us to share what we have learned over the past 20 years. It is with great pride that we welcome you to this new "20th anniversary" edition of Putting on the Brakes.
