Combining the latest research evidence with the authors’ practical expertise, Helping Children with ADHD offers a complete intervention programme for flexibly delivering behavioural and cognitive interventions to children aged 6-12 with ADHD and associated conditions.

  • Redefines and develops best practice in the application of cognitive and behavioural techniques to help children aged 6-12 with ADHD and associated comorbid conditions, including learning difficulties
  • Offers a range of engaging resources within a pragmatic and practically-focused approach; modular structure allows the interventions to be selected and tailored according to the particular age, ability and needs of the individual child
  • An appendix of entertaining stories about Buzz, a boy with ADHD, provides structural narrative while also teaching core skills in areas such as keeping calm, planning, managing impulsivity and dealing with anxiety
  • Straightforward, accessible language allows the techniques to be used by those without expert clinical training; dedicated sections provide advice for using the approach in school, home and group contexts
  • A companion website provides downloadable materials including illustrated patient worksheets to accompany the narrative stories
