ADHD Ð Living without Brakes | by Martin L Kutscher | code: B126 | The author describes the spectrum of ADHD, the co-occurring symptoms, and common difficulties that parents face. The rest of the book focuses on solutions based around four rules. Rule number one is keeping it positive: punishments can change behaviour, but only positive approaches can improve attitude. Rule number two is keeping it calm: itÕs difficult thinking clearly enough to solve problems logically if you are feeling overwhelmed. Rule number three is keeping it organised: this rule relates particularly to the child’s school life. Rule number four is to keep doing rules one to three. Finally, Dr Kutscher discusses the role of medication for treating ADHD. The concluding chapter summarises the information covered and can also be read as a complete, freestanding text. Useful checklists and further reading recommendations are also included.
