Living Without Books: Drug-Free ADHD

 

Want treatment options for managing Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder that don't come from the pharmacy? Pick up Overcoming ADHD (DaCapo). Written by much-published developmental expert Stanley I. Greenspan, MD, clinical professor of psychiatry and pediatrics at George Washington University Medical School, the book outlines a program that parents can implement to address behavior difficulties. Greenspan's comprehensive approach looks beyond symptoms to the underlying condition, with seven key goals that include teaching your child self-reflection, building his or her self-confidence and improving family dynamics. Replete with real-life examples, games and exercises, Overcoming ADHD gives parents tools to help their child develop his or her potential—without the meds.
