"Highly readable and comprehensive....Reflects a scientist-practitioner model and multimethod approach to ADHD assessment and intervention in the schools. Each chapter has been updated and expanded to reflect current research, and the book contains an extensive literature review. The illustrative case examples and reproducible forms, checklists, and handouts add to the practical nature of this text. Highly readable and comprehensive, this second edition will be the standard for those working with students with ADHD or planning wide-scale intervention programs. Because of the breadth and depth of its coverage, the book will be particularly useful for school psychologists, social workers, counselors, nurses, and administrators, as well as for general and special education teachers. Additionally, the book will be widely used as a text in upper-level undergraduate- and graduate-level courses addressing special topics and issues in the schools and child and adolescent psychopathology, and in graduate-level practica in school psychology, social work, and counseling."--Howard W. Atlas, EdD, NCSP, Director of Pupil Personnel Services, Waukegan (IL) Public Schools "This book is a 'must'! DuPaul and Stoner have done a masterful job....The volume is packed with clear, readable advice about everything from causes to interventions. I am particularly impressed with the authors' careful delineation of the connections between ADHD and learning difficulties, in a chapter that speaks to the need for careful differential diagnosis. Also, for those of us who are always searching for appropriate interventions, the authors provide many for use in school and at home. I would like to see this book used as a text in school psychology programs across the country."--Margaret Suby, CAGS, Certified School Psychologist, Learning Disabilities Specialist, Simmons College "This practical book will be equally useful as a guide for seasoned practitioners and a graduate-level text. AmongVom Verlag:
Affecting one out of every 20 children and adolescents, ADHD is often first identified by education professionals - teachers, counselors, or school psychologists. Until now, however, the literature on ADHD has primarily been written by and for clinic-based practitioners. Addressing school-related problems associated with ADHD such as academic underachievement, noncompliance with classroom rules, and problematic peer relationships, this book tells school professionals how to identify and assess students who might have ADHD and how to develop and implement classroom-based programs. Included are a number of appendices containing examples of handouts and observation coding sheets. This book is specifically designed to meet the needs of school psychologists, guidance counselors, administrators, and both regular and special education teachers. It is an appropriate text for advanced courses addressing childhood behavior disorders and also serves as a reference for graduate students receiving training in a variety of school-based professions.
