About the Book

Is your toddler going through the "whacky one's," "terrible two's," "troublesome three's," or "fudgesicle four's/five’s?" Or could their behavior be something more? ADHD is a genetic condition that usually has an onset prior to the age of 4. It presents with hyperactivity, impulsivity, inattentiveness, irritability, and aggression. Due to the fact that all toddlers show some “ADHD behavior,” it’s challenging to discern if behvior falls “within normal limits” or if it is “clinically significant.” Learn the distinction. Toddlers & ADHD shares the latest research on the diagnosis and the treatment of 1-5 year olds with this condition. The goal is to reduce the child’s ineffective symptoms, which will subsequently lessen the stress level of the entire family unit. Therefore, you will learn parenting strategies specifically for a toddler with ADHD, and you will also find out how to seek help for your child, the right \questions to ask, and what to expect from Early Intervention services, preschool and kindergarten based services, and therapeutic/psychiatric services.
