Summary

Summary

This highly practical guide presents an empirically based "nuts-and-bolts" approach to understanding, diagnosing, and treating ADHD in adolescents. Balancing research and theory with detailed case examples, Arthur Robin takes readers through each step of his structured intervention program. Easy-to-follow guidelines illustrate the program's integration of educational, medical, and psychological components. The book contains numerous reproducible handouts and forms, including requisite rating scales and detailed checklists for evaluating ADHD, developing treatment plans, and monitoring psychological, behavioral, family, and academic progress.
