Description: Hyperactivity offers a unique approach to managing hyperactivity that can help you to channel your child's impulsive, risk-taking behavior from a source of failure and frustration into a potential advantage that can work for him or her well into adulthood. It was written by Dr. Sam Goldstein and Dr. Michael Goldstein, directors of the renowned Neurology, Learning & Behavior Center in Salt Lake City, and is based on their years of experience in training parents to deal with the problems of hyperactive children. In it they educate you in how to work with your child's limitations - and your own - to develop a lifelong strategy for coping with hyperactivity. Just as importantly, they teach you how to work with doctors and teachers to develop a well-rounded management program that emphasizes skill building over pill taking. As they rightly point out, while artificial stimulant therapy can be useful in helping to get your child to sit still, it doesn't help build the learning, attention, and social skills they need to succeed in life. Since the first step toward successful management of any problem starts with a thorough understanding, Hyperactivity begins with a thorough description of attention deficit disorder (ADD) and how it manifests itself in children from infancy to adolescence. It also provides questionnaires for your child's physician and teachers to fill out that help guarantee that your child isn't being mislabeled. And with the help of checklists and summary descriptions you'll learn to zero in on the specific behavioral problems that comprise the disorder as they appear in a variety of settings, including school, home, and with friends. You'll even find checklists and self-teststhat help you to get a fix on your own attitudes and behavior and how well you are coping with your child's hyperactivity. Hyperactivity reviews all of the most commonly used treatments for ADD including drug, behavioral, dietary and other methods, and it helps you to make informed choices in working with professionals in developing a management strategy. Hyperactivity is also an excellent source of information on where to go for further assistance and information in the U.S. and Canada. Included at the end of the book are appendixes that guide you to additional books, pamphlets, and videotapes on coping with hyperactivity, as well as such forms of assistance as counseling and parents' support groups. Hyperactivity is an invaluable resource for parents of hyperactive children as well as teachers, school counselors and anyone who works with ADD children. No other book offers you so much information, so many practical tips and guidelines, and such a wealth of sound commonsense advice on coping with hyperactive children.
