MYTH OF THE ADHD CHILD Revised Edition
101 Ways to Improve Your Child's Behavior and Attention Span Without Drugs, Labels, or Coercion
Thomas Armstrong

When Thomas Armstrong's Myth of the A.D.D. Child was first published in 1995, it was controversial and confronted our obsession with Attention Deficit Disorder. Dr Armstrong argued that many behaviours labelled as ADD are simply a child's active response to complex social, emotional and educational influences and that by tackling the root causes of a child's attention and behavioural problems, rather than masking the symptoms with medication and behaviour-modification programmes, parents can help their children implement positive changes in their lives.

Now more than twenty years later, the rate of ADHD diagnosis has increased sharply, along with the prescription of medication to treat it. Dr Armstrong presents new developments and much-needed insights in this substantially revised edition. In addition to updating his original fifty proven strategies for parents to help children overcome attention and behavioural problems, he adds fifty-one new non-drug strategies.
