Beschreibung

Written by the mother of Stefan, a boy diagnosed with ADHD, Marching to a Different Tune is a day-by-day, moment-by-moment account of how his unusual and difficult behaviour affects and disrupts their family life inside and outside the home. Jacky Fletcher describes in intimate detail the struggles, embarrassments and triumphs her family experiences throughout a four year period of Stefan's childhood. The diary ends with an expression of the family's love for Stefan - as he approaches adolescence, they will learn new ways to cope with the challenges of his behaviour, applying the knowledge they have gained through experience. Marching to a Different Tune gives an essential new perspective to the understanding of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder - it describes this complex set of behaviours from the inside. It complements and deepens the clinical presentation of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, at a time when this diagnosis is being applied to more and more children. The last chapter of the book gives a clinical description of ADHD; the appendix contains useful addresses for more information and support networks, and a list of recommended reading. This book will inform the practice of teachers and psychologists who work with ADHD children, and guide and support these children's parents and families.
