Summary
"ADHD doesn't just affect kids--adults can have it too. This will come as no surprise if you are close to an adult who has problems with attention, concentration, distractibility, impulsiveness, forgetfulness, or self-control (or all of these symptoms). The good news is that with effective treatment your loved one with ADHD can have a happier, more successful life and a stronger, closer relationship with you and others. Without sugarcoating the facts, ADHD expert Russell A. Barkley explains what ADHD is all about and how you can tell if your spouse, partner, friend, adult child, or sibling may have it. He shows how to guide your loved one toward the right treatment and, uses real-life examples to answer questions. Adults with ADHD can achieve their goals and live out big dreams--and you can help. In this book you will learn practical steps for helping your loved one accept and manage his or her disorder, and pursue unique, often nontraditional pathways to success." -- Page [4] cover
