Dr. Barkley, a foremost expert in the field, provides highly readable, interesting, and authoritative information about the neurodevelopmental basis for ADHD and the executive functioning and self-regulation deficits plaguing students with ADHD.

In addition, teachers will benefit from the detailed information about the latest medications for ADHD. This book will be extremely useful for teachers-easy-to-read, practical, and provides teachers with exactly what they need to know to best help their students with ADHD!"
