'As well as very sound advice, there are sections on setting up support groups, giving your child the best diet, what to expect from your child's school and many other helpful suggestions which should help to ease the burden of any parent or guardian who is unsure of the best way to help in this very distressing condition.' --Fidelity, the journal for the National Council of Psychotherapists
'This is a valuable book, an ideal first stop for parents and carers and I can see its use as a reference within the hard-pressed population of service providers in health, education and social services.' --Lea Hurst, IPSEA advisor, Independent Panel for Special Education Advice
'I would recommend this book as a good guide for any parent or carer who has a child with ADHD. It would also make interesting reading for anyone working with children and young people with ADHD.' --Melanie Exley, parent of a child with ADHD, Nasen Special Magazine
