"Informed, compassionate, eminently successful."--- Journal of Nursing Care
"Filled with warmth and useful suggestions. Parents of Hyperactive children will want to use this book as a continual source of help and encouragement."--- G. Hugh Allred, Ed.D., professor, Brigham Young University

Reviews - What do our customers think?
an answer to prayer  Dec 18, 2007
This book had so many answers that my husband and I had been searching for for our son. It is a very detailed book about causes, signs, treatment and behavior modification ideas. It often takes a long time of waiting to get in to doctors and to get test results and this book helps so much to make the waiting time productive.
Well...  Sep 25, 2007
I got this book and thought hummm this should give me hundreds of practical solutions...It gave me everything but that. This book is mostly about ADHD and other stuff not ADD like the title suggests. Thank goodness I did not pay too much for it. Like I said it really did not give me what the title suggests.
Worth the time to read it  Jul 2, 2005
Having listened to Dr. Taylor in person, read his publications and seen his video and audio tapes on helping children and adolescents with ADD/ADHD, I can attest to his breadth of knowledge on the subject, his creativity and the thoroughness with which he lays out information in this book. For anyone who wants practical suggestions to intervene with a myriad of behaviors including oppositional defiance,surviving summer vacations and holidays,overcoming distractibility, ways to prevent family conflicts, suggestions on diet and how to ensure you are getting an adequate Individual Education Plan at school, Dr. Taylor presents an excellent resource. Contrary to statements of several reviewers, he does provide research references and definitions for many term found in the field. As a practicing psychologist with 36 years of work with children and adolescents with ADD/ADHD, I would highly recommend this book for any parent or professional desiring helpful strategies.
Check the footnotes, or lack thereof...  Oct 13, 2003
Horrible! I checked the footnotes for some of Taylor's most outrageous statements and you know what his sources are? HIMSELF!
Most of the time, however, he doesn't bother with resources to back up his claims. There are no footnotes for statements like "There is also a four-hour protein cycle, in which the child becomes noticeably more symptomatic during the third and forth hours after the last meal, then becomes better shortly after consuming a protein-rich snack or meal." "Stuttering and stammering are common parts of the syndrome.""Their reading is disjoineted, only one word at a time with no flow between words and incorrect pauses for punctuation.", and "Fair-featured children (blue or green eyes and blond or red hair) account for 40 to 50 percent of all children with ADHD in the Caucasian category." I guess we're just supposed to take his word for these statements without having access to the sources of his information.
Here's a statement that really disturbed me: "Childen with ADHD tend to relate poorly to other children, especially in group settings. Though at first they may attract friends, hyperactives {his term} are not able to keep them. They are incredibly bossy, dominate play situations and intimidate their playmates, are bullheaded and stubborn about getting their own way, and remain inflexible to the appeals of another child." Notice the word "SOME" is not used--it's just a sweeping, negative judgment of all hyperactive ADHD children that can only add to the stigma of ADHD. Shame on the publisher and the author.
I too recommend Sears' book as an alternative, as well as The Myth of the A.D.D. Child (which although it has a outrageous title, has some excellent information and sources for learning more).
If you are dealing with ADD or ADHD, this is a treasure!  Apr 30, 2002
If you could buy only one book to assist you in helping an ADD/ADHD child, this would be it. Taylor has a real knack for "getting inside the skin" of these children. He has a genuine empathy, and is one of the few authors who can explain them in a way that makes sense.
Even after years of working in this field, I find that I gain new insights and practical information in each chapter. For example, he writes, "Poor depth perception results in clumsiness, awkwardness, and occasional stumbling and running into things." It's a lot easier to sympathize with the klutzy child when you look at it from that perspective!
Rather than simply list and catagorize symptoms, as do many books on the subject, Taylor digs into the issues, demystifying them and offering practical, hands-on suggestions for both professionals and parents.
His understanding of the physiology of ADHD is clear in his description of food cravings. The child who craves salty and highly seasoned food, he explains, is deficient in minerals; the excessive desire for cheese shows a need for amino acids. Similarly, itchy skin and rashes occur because, "Basically, their bodies have lost some natural moisturizers in the form of essential fatty acid derivatives and are suffering from a form of dehydration."
He covers many underlying and related conditions. Taylor has clearly done his homework and is aware of the newest research on conditions that include Asperger's syndrome, autism, PDD, etc. The stakes for these children are very high, and it's essential that a parent be well educated in all the various areas that are involved. The areas include: the use of medicine, the role of nutrition (not the politically correct nutrition du jour, but that which is backed by solid research), and those behavior modifying techniques that really work.
Taylor is unique in that he is an undisputed authority in all of these areas. His gift to the reader is that he offers a wealth of information in a way that can be absorbed and put to use quite easily.
