If Your Adolescent Has ADHD

An Essential Resource for Parents

Dr. Thomas J. Power and Linda Wasmer Andrews

Adolescent Mental Health Initiative

  • Offers reliable, up-to-date information on adolescent ADHD, including causes, symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment
  • Provides practical, evidence-based advice from a leading psychologist on dealing with common issues, such as determining readiness to drive and instilling good homework and study habits
  • Covers teen-specific topics such as adolescent friendships, dating, curfews, and sports and extracurricular activities--many of which receive short shrift in other books for parents
  • Explores the full spectrum of treatment options, including behavioral therapy, stimulant and non-stimulant medications, educational interventions, and parenting strategies
  • Discusses approaches that may complement treatment, such as school-based mentoring and ADHD coaching
  • Includes case studies as well as a sample homework chart, sample daily report card, glossary, and resources list
