ADHD: A Challenging Journey

ADHD: A Challenging Journey

June 2003 | 162 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
`There is no other text that can inform, educate and involve so effectively about the needs of ADHD children in mainstream classrooms. I would recommend that it is included on reading lists for trainee teachers, and is promoted by Special Needs Co-ordinators in schools. - Jane Spencer, De Montfort University

`A remarkable story told with honesty, candour and real strength. It is powerful' - Rt. Revd. Christopher Herbert, Bishop of St Albans

A fascinating and thought-provoking book written by the mother of an eleven year-old with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). This book is cleverly constructed and looks at ADHD from many perspectives.

It follows a 22-hour expedition, but it is also a journey of discovery for Anna's family about how to best help their son.

Peppered with humour, irony, laughter, pain, outrage, discussion and reflection, this book shows a way through the maze of ADHD, and provides a reader-friendly but challenging read.
