Continuing research revealed that in many instances ADHD persisted into adult life, and that adult ADHD included symptoms that were not present in childhood. These findings resulted in his 1995 book Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder in Adults. He also authored the first book for the parents
of children with ADHD, The Hyperactive Child in 1974. Now, in this revised and updated edition of ADHD he presents the definitive resource on Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.
In his discussion of ADHD treatments, Wender stresses that drug therapy remains the most effective in treating the disorder. He adds, however, that psychological techniques, when combined with medication, can produce further improvement. Most important, Wender offers practical--and
extensive--instructions on how parents of an ADHD sufferer can best help their child.
Throughout, Wender supplies extensive case histories of children and adolescents with ADHD, as well as accounts of the experience of ADHD in adults as perceived by both patients and their families. In addition, the book contains valuable information on where to seek help, as well as on the
kinds of diagnostic tests currently available. Finally, in an appendix to the volume, the author includes instructions on how adults can self-screen for the disorder.
Now a classic work, ADHD grants parents and adults whose lives have been touched by this disorder an indispensable source of help, hope, and understanding.
Paul Wender, M.D. is author of the best-selling book The Hyperactive Child, Adolescent, and Adult was formerly Distinguished Professor of Psychiatry and Director of Psychiatric Research at the University of Utah School of Medicine. Known as the "Dean of ADHD" by his colleagues, he is a pioneer in
identifying and treating this disorder and he ran some of the first clinical trials on Ritalin. He lives in Andover, Massachusetts.
