ADHD Go-To Guide

Desiree Silva and Michele Toner

Many books have been written for parents about ADHD but most of them are quite scientific. They can be difficult to navigate, especially if you are a parent with some symptoms of ADHD yourself.

This book is a go-to guide for parents and teachers, providing up-to-date knowledge in a simple, easy-to-read format. It is filled with information your doctor would like to provide but is often unable to do so in the limited appointment times available. This book also gives a framework and practical tips for how you can manage and advocate for your child in different settings, with or without medication. It summarises evidence to date for medication and alternative therapies, examines commonly held beliefs about ADHD and debunks myths.

This book has been written by a developmental paediatrician (Desiree Silva) and an ADHD coach (Michele Toner), both of whom are passionate about improving the lives of children with ADHD and their families. They both have over 20 years of experience in the field and recognise the need for this practical guide.

Clear, compassionate and thoughtful. An essential, informative, practical guide for anyone who has or knows someone with ADHD.
