Understanding Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder is a concise, clearly written volume that provides up-to-date information on how the condition can be treated with early diagnosis and intervention. The book will prove useful to both professionals and parents who seek a better understanding of children and childhood development.

ADHD affects approximately 5% of American school-age childrenˆthat‚s about one or two in a classroom of thirty. Symptoms include extreme levels of hyperactivity, inattention, and disruptive behavior. Students with ADHD are less likely than their unaffected peers to complete high school and less likely to attend college. Moreover, adults with ADHD have lower household incomes than unaffected peers with the same level of education.
