‘Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is found in 2-5% of children in New Zealand. Although up to three times as many boys are diagnosed with ADHD as girls, it is now suspected the incidence is more like 1:1.
With many myths surrounding ADHD – such as it is caused by sugar or bad parenting – these make ADHD one of the most misunderstood disorders in the world.
Author and psychologist Stuart Passmore says that parents need to understand that ADHD is real, it’s a neurological disorder and it can be treated.’

Written in a calm, direct and non-judgmental language this is a must-have for any family juggling the maze of ADHD treatments and lost in the jungle of contradictory and confusing messages.’
