Hyperactivity and Concentration Disorders

Do you have a fidgety child? One who cannot concentrate on one activity for an extended period of time, one who reacts in a flighty way and can never sit still?

Hyperactivity and concentration disorders seem to have become a common illness among children these days. Parents do not know whether their children are simply lively or actually affected by a disorder.

The present guidebook presents a proficient and comprehensive description of the disorder and names the possible causes, which are not necessarily to be found in a child's upbringing. The book gives guidelines on how to handle and solve the problem within the family or how to find help from outside, and it describes effective methods of treatment.

The extensive appendix of the book contains a questionnaire to analyze the behaviour of a child.
