How to Reach and Teach Children and Teens with ADD/ADHD, Third Edition

The third edition of How to Reach and Teach Children and Teens with ADD/ADHD has been completely revised to offer the most updated and comprehensive guidance to everyone engaged in the positive education of children and teens who have been diagnosed with ADHD or show signs and symptoms of the disorder. This valuable resource contains the research–validated treatments, educational laws, management tools, and myriad strategies designed to help these students succeed academically, behaviorally and socially. This book also includes authentic case studies, student intervention plans, communication forms, and much more. While addressing the specific needs of students with ADD/ADHD, the strategies are also appropriate and recommended for all children and teens who appear to have executive function weaknesses, or who are experiencing any learning, attention, or behavioral difficulties.

"I am pleased and honored to endorse this latest edition. Based on sound scientific evidence, this latest edition provides an excellent contemporary view of ADHD and the problems it poses for self–regulation and executive functioning. Of all areas of impairment, it is the school setting in which ADHD can have the greatest adverse effects in the lives of most children with the disorder. This book is filled with numerous recommendations for educators and school mental health professionals for managing ADHD effectively in school settings so as to promote better development, adjustment, and success at effectively dealing with the many difficulties ADHD may pose across a child′s education."
Russell A. Barkley, Ph.D., Clinical Professor of Psychiatry, Medical University of South Carolina, author of Taking Charge of ADHD, Third Edition

"Sandra Rief′s newest book could easily be every educator and parent′s ′go to′ handbook for ADD/ADHD. She includes a plethora of interventions and strategies to address difficult behaviors, many of which can be easily implemented in both home and school settings. This book is a must–read for anyone living or working with children with ADD/ADHD!"
Rebecca Moyes, M.Ed., educator, consultant, author of Executive Function Dysfunction

"I have used Sandra Rief′s books in my credential classes instructing students earning their M.Ed. in Special Education or their first teaching credential. This new edition is clear, to–the–point, and an extremely beneficial resource on ADHD for all."
Stacey J. Kasendorf, M.Ed., San Diego State University, Adjunct Faculty, Special Education Department
