"This is a valuable resource for parents, carers and school staff, and fills an important gap in the support available for children diagnosed with ADHD. The programme will lead to more positive outcomes for this vulnerable population"

Bill Colley Educational Consultant, The UK ADHD Partnership, London, UK

There is very little published guidance on how best to effectively deliver CBT in order to help children with ADHD understand and manage the challenges they face. Addressing this need for an authoritative way forward, Helping Children with ADHD offers a complete intervention programme for healthcare professionals and parents, allowing them to flexibly deliver behavioural and cognitive interventions to children aged 6-12 with ADHD

The focus throughout is on practical techniques to address symptoms, problem behaviours and emotional difficulties. Consistent with the abilities of young children and the evidence base for ADHD, the primary emphasis is on behavioural and environmental interventions, although cognitive interventions are also included as appropriate. A modular format allows treatment to be tailored to the needs of the individual child, and the information for expert practitioners is supplemented by straightforward guidance for teachers and parents on how to extend the techniques into the classroom and home

In order to ensure the engagement of young people, core concepts are presented in an innovative way through the eyes of Buzz, a young boy. The varied adventures of Buzz provide the intervention with a structural narrative, while also teaching children skills that they can subsequently apply themselves in key areas such as keeping calm, planning, managing impulsivity and dealing with anxiety
