This clear, informative book provides all you need to know about ADHD in the context of adopted and looked after children. Prospective adopters and carers are often faced with the prospect of having to decide whether they can care for a child with a health need or condition they know little about and have no direct experience of. It can be difficult to know where to turn for reliable information. What lies behind the diagnoses and “labels” that many looked after children bring with them? And what will it be like to live with them? How will they benefit from family life? In this book, adopters and foster carers also describe what it is like to parent an affected child, “telling it like it is”, sharing their parenting experiences and offering useful advice. This combination of expert information and first-hand experiences will help readers to gain knowledge, achieve understanding, and to make informed decisions. Parenting a Child with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder provides a short, easily understandable explanation of ADHD and related conditions in children and young people, including symptoms, prognosis and treatment. It also explores the different ways in which ADHD can affect child development and behaviour; the issues it raises with regard to educational provision for affected children; and where and how to get help.
