ADHD: The Facts

Mark Selikowitz

Oxford University Press

Children with ADHD are very challenging to bring up. No plan of management can ever be successful if it is not based on a comprehensive assessment of the child’s particular strengths and difficulties. Look upon the child with ADHD as someone whose behaviour and learning inadequacies are due to a hidden disability that are not of his, or his parents’, making. This chapter explores home management of ADHD, including steps in management—i.e. understanding the condition, explaining the condition to the child, parents’ needs, the needs of siblings, improving the child’s self-esteem, the parents’ role as a teacher, and working with a school.

Keywords:   ADHD, home management, siblings, parents’ needs, family stress, self-esteem, parents as teachers, school liaison
