Book Review - The Myth of the ADHD Child

The Myth of the ADHD Child

About the Book
A fully revised and updated edition of the groundbreaking book on tackling the root causes of children’s attention and behavior problems rather than masking the symptoms with medication.
More than twenty years after Dr. Thomas Armstrong's Myth of the A.D.D. Child first published, he presents much needed updates and insights in this substantially revised edition. When The Myth of the A.D.D. Child was first published in 1995, Dr. Thomas Armstrong made the controversial argument that many behaviors labeled as ADD or ADHD are simply a child's active response to complex social, emotional, and educational influences. In this fully revised and updated edition, Dr. Armstrong shows readers how to address the underlying causes of a child's attention and behavior problems in order to help their children implement positive changes in their lives.

The rate of ADHD diagnosis has increased sharply, along with the prescription of medications to treat it. Now needed more than ever, this book includes fifty-one new non-drug strategies to help children overcome attention and behavior problems, as well as updates to the original fifty proven strategies.

My Take on the Book
This is a book that is a must have resource for any parent, teacher or others that are working with or are concerned about their own or other ADHD diagnosed child. The book is filled with amazing resources, facts, figures and more that will open your eyes to the way that the ADHD mind works and how we can work to support people with diagnosed to overcome the diagnose and manage this in many ways!
