This important volume takes a lifespan perspective on ADHD, dispelling the notion that it is only a disorder of childhood and enabling clinicians to develop effective and appropriate interventions for preschoolers, school-age children, adolescents, and adults. Within a biogenetic, neurodevelopmental framework, the author reviews empirically and clinically based treatment interventions including psychopharmacology, behavior management, parent/teacher training, and self-management techniques. Specific challenges and milestones for each clinical population are examined and related disturbances of self-control and impulsivity are placed in their developmental context.

"Dr. Teeter's careful, scholarly review of the ADHD literature is deftly integrated with the science of normal human development....In my work with children, adolescents, and adults with ADHD, this is a text I will turn to time and time again. First, to reacquaint myself with normal developmental issues. Second, to develop, integrate, and implement reasoned and reasonable treatment plans for those with ADHD." --From the Foreword by Sam Goldstein, PhD, author of Managing Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder in Children, Second Edition
"Dr. Teeter has accomplished the difficult task of writing a scholarly, yet practical and readable book that will be useful to academics, practitioners, and parents alike. Her comprehensive developmental approach to the topic fills a critical gap in the literature on ADHD. If I were to choose one book on ADHD to have on my bookshelf, this would be it." --Cindy Carlson, PhD, Professor, Department of Educational Psychology, University of Texas at Austin
