Attention Deficit Disorder (A.D.D.) is now recognized as the commonest cause of school under-achievement and behaviour difficulties in schoolchildren. It affects 5-10% of children aged 5-18 years - that is, the same proportion as asthma. Australia, like other countries, is undergoing a rapid increase in awareness of this condition amongst child-care professionals and parents. New parent support groups have been formed throughout Australia. There is regular coverage of the condition on radio and television and in newspapers andpopular magazines. In All About A.D.D. Mark Selikowitz notes changing attitudes towards the diagnosis and treatment of A.D.D. among the ranks of paediatricians. This recent focus on A.D.D. proves that there is a need for an up-to-date, comprehensive and practical guide covering the condition in abalanced and authoritative manner. The book will be useful for parents as well as health professionals - doctors, psychologists, speech therapists, etc. - and educators. The book is of particular relevance to Australian readers, but will also be of interest and value to readers in the USA and theUK.
