Up to one-third of all school-aged children are diagnosed with Attention Deficit Disorder or Attention Deficit with Hyperactivity Disorder. Many of these children are being coerced by teachers, administrators, and doctors into taking Ritalin, which has serious side effects. This crusading book advocates a new alternative to Ritalin-the Caregivers Skill Program (CSP), a step-by-step plan for both school and home that focuses on behavioral and motivational problems. Based on extensive clinical trials and application, CSP offers concrete, easy-to-apply techniques for understanding and improving children's behaviour, school performance, and self-esteem. The book also tells parents how to resist pressure from teachers and doctors to give their children ritalin.
