"This book offers a lot more than its title suggests. The author has organized the topic of ADHD in a detailed and well-integrated context....The reader gets a great review of the field of child and adolescent psychiatry in which various theories of development are discussed, drawing from a rich and up to date bibliography....Clinically relevant information on ADHD covering every conceivable approach to the problem is available in a well-organized and structured manner, which allows the reader to pick and choose without losing the thread of the text....This book is highly recommended in part or in whole....It will be a comprehensive source of reliable information, not only on diagnosis and treatment of ADHD, but also for a detailed, yet easy to grasp understanding of child, adolescent, and adult developmental challenges. I found many practical suggestions pertaining to school based issues, particularly useful as a resource for physicians, parents, teachers and other professionals. There is little to be critical about in this well-written and well-planned text." --"The Canadian Child Psychiatry Review"
"Twenty tables in the book give readers critical information at a glance, and an index of these tables is helpful for quick reference. This text is well-documented....Not only is this book appropriate for educators and mental health professionals, it also would be a valuable resource for parents, as it presents very current, well-researched information in a very readable style." --"Childhood Education"
.,."everyone with an interest in ADHD should find something of value in this text. Clinicians are offered a rare view of ADHD as seen through the eyes of academia and an excellentsummary of the extensive research on the topic. At the same time, academicians will appreciate and learn more about the complexity of working with ADHD in clinical, community, school, and family settings, and, at the same time, benefit from the myriad of ideas for future research." -"-Child and Family Behavior Therapy"

Upper-division undergraduates through professionals." --"Choice"
"Dr. Teeter's careful, scholarly review of the ADHD literature is deftly integrated with the science of normal human development....In my work with children, adolescents, and adults with ADHD, this is a text I will turn to time and time again. First, to reacquaint myself with normal developmental issues. Second, to develop, integrate, and implement reasoned and reasonable treatment plans for those with ADHD." --From the Foreword by Sam Goldstein, PhD, author of Managing Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder in Children, Second Edition
"Dr. Teeter has accomplished the difficult task of writing a scholarly, yet practical and readable book that will be useful to academics, practitioners, and parents alike. Her comprehensive developmental approach to the topic fills a critical gap in the literature on ADHD. If I were to choose one book on ADHD to have on my bookshelf, this would be it." --Cindy Carlson, PhD, Professor, Department of Educational Psychology, University of Texas at Austin
