“Dr. Carroccia has written an exceptional book addressing the diagnosis and management of ADHD and ADD. I am very impressed by his well-organized book. It is the most comprehensive text on this topic that I have read. He discusses all phases of diagnosis and treatment, including extensive suggestions for home-based treatment, behavioral management at school and professional treatment. His writing style is articulate and practical for both family members and professionals to read. In addition to outlining specific treatment issues, his book aptly and compassionately describes the experience of those suffering from this condition. I highly recommend Treating ADHD/ADD in Children and Adolescents.”
“If you know or work with a child or adolescent with attention issues, this is a MUST HAVE book. Treating ADHD/ADD in Children and Adolescents is the most comprehensive book I have come across in working with children with ADHD. I fully expect this book to become a gold standard for parents and professionals in the field. It should be required reading for treatment providers. I can certainly say that after reading this book I not only feel more confident and competent as a clinical psychologist in treating these children, but also excited to work with this population!”
“Dr. Carroccia's book, Treating ADHD/ADD in Children and Adolescents, is the most practical and complete guide for ADHD I have read. As a psychiatrist and mother of three (two with ADHD), I found this to hit all the right notes for a parent and clinician. The multidimensional approach to evaluation, treatment, and management at both home and school will give every family what they need: the knowledge that this is manageable. I will be recommending this book to colleagues and patients. I wish I had it when my children were younger!”
