Hailed by Child magazine as one of the ten best parenting books of 1993, this is the only book that offers the invaluable advice of an entire team of experts--a monther and the pediatrician and child psychologist she turned to when her son was diagnosed with ADHD--on every aspect of raising a hyperactive child, including:

Why it is essential to have your child evaluated by an expert diagnostic team--and how to go about finding more
How to be sure your child is receiving the best possible medical care
How to be your child's adocate in the school bureaucracy
How to help your child acquire the specific study skills that will help him or her learn most effectively
