Synopsis
Discusses attention deficit hyperactive disorder (ADHD). Asks if hyperactive children are normal but naughty and whether the condition results from bad parenting, food additives, or may be genetically caused. Children explain what having the condition is like, and parents explain how they cope. Experts in diet, behaviour and special-needs education describe practical strategies for working with these children in the classroom to help them to cope at school, at home, and with life in general. Topics covered are: living with hyperactivity; causes of hyperactivity; eye contact and listening skills; keeping calm; short sentences; behaviour modification; choices; waiting; anticipating changes; snacks; time out; punishments; changing how the world looks; medication.
