ADHD in the Young Child is probably one of the most unique books you'll ever read. The authors sensitively and effectively describe what life is like living with a young child with ADHD. The book covers the gamut of treatments for young children with ADHD: medication, behavior management, educational interventions, how to get a proper diagnosis, and more! The authors Cathy Reimers, Ph.D. and Bruce Brunger, provide practical solutions to common problems using over 75 cartoon illustrations. The companion, Buzz & Pixie Activity Coloring Book is a wonderful tool for children to learn concepts of appropriate behavior.
"Young ADHD kids may be cute, but they can drive you nuts! This book contains a ton of useful ideas---for mom, dad and teacher---to help them keep their sdanity."
Thomas W. Phelan, Ph.D., Author of 1-2-3 Magic!
"ADHD in the Young Child addresses in a convenient format ways to redirect the behavior of young children in just about any imaginable problematic situation (at home, school and other settings). This book, along with the companion book, The Buzz and Pixie Activity Coloring Book, has a unique and interactive format. Through cartoons and hands-on coloring activities which children should find motivating, parents and teachers are able to engage young children with ADHD in discussion of appropriate and inappropriate behaviors and teach them many effective strategies in the process. The authors also present other valuable guidance and information that readers will find very useful as a resource."
Sandra Reif, Author of How to Reach and Teach ADD/ADHD Children and The ADD/ADHD Cheklist
"ADHD in the Young Child provides and useful and valuable road map for the parent of the pre-school child with attentional problems. It belongs on every parents bookshelf...and the waiting room of every pediatrician!"
Richard D. Lavoie, Author of It's So Hard to be Your Friend.
