Reviews

"If I were asked to select only two or three books that I would consider essential to clinical practice in relation to adolescents with ADHD, this book would head the list. It should be readily available to every clinician who works with adolescents and their families."
-George W. Hynd, EdD

"An excellent resource for both therapists and educators."
-Craig A. Everett, PhD

"Dr. Robin's approach is especially successful in balancing medical and psychological aspects of treatment....Unlike many other works on ADHD, the book specifically addresses important psychological characteristics of adolescence that affect this age group's understanding and acceptance of treatment."
-Esther H. Wender, MD

"Robin's careful focus on both broad concepts and the details of the clinical process addresses an array of important topics in an area that is too often ignored."
-Michael Gordon, PhD
