For the parent of a son with ADHD, the cover's beaming poster child is emblematic of success: handsome, happy, relaxed, and as comfortable with a notebook in his hands as he might be with a video game controller. As Forgan and Richey reiterate, they are not merely professionals working with boys with ADHD and their parents; each has a son with ADHD as well. The book is informational and action-oriented: terms are explained, and current research and treatment options are explored in language that parents can understand, use with their sons, and disseminate to others. With sections like "Infancy and Preschool," "The Elementary Years," and "The Teenage Years," parents can zero in on current issues, what's ahead, and what's behind them. Practical solutions are given in terms of what help is available in schools, how to access it, and setting specific goals, with a "Dynamic Action Plan" in the concluding section of the book. Focusing largely on their experiences as parents, Forgan and Richey emphasize methods that were effective with their own kids, while downplaying other less-successful treatments and tactics. Throughout, the authors deal extensively with the issue of stigma—internal and external—and provide examples of letters and dialogues parents might use to explain the condition to friends and family. Additionally, Forgan and Richey highlight the many unique strengths of boys with ADHD. Illus. (Mar.)
