Given the high prevalence of ADHD in the community, strategies and interventions designed to assist those with inattention and hyperactivity difficulties has never been more warranted. Unfortunately, ADHD is often greatly misunderstood leading to problems with parenting and teaching that can result in ongoing behavioral and emotional struggles.
The ADHD Kit (Part 1) aims to assist psychologists, counsellors and other mental health professionals to teach parents and teachers alike the underlying causes of ADHD. Having a solid grasp of exactly what ADHD is (and what it is not) lays the foundations for effective management of this condition.
Part 1 offers colorful, vibrant, visual prompts that guide the client (step by step) with a comprehensive overview of the theoretical background necessary to understand what ADHD is and why their children may be responding and behaving in the way they are.
