SA’s Leading Expert on ADHD, Helena Bester, Presents New Hope for ADHD in Children and Adults

New Hope for ADHD in Children and AdultsNuwe hoop vir ADHD by kinders en volwassenesTafelberg presents New Hope for ADHD in Children and Adults by Helena Bester:

There is hope for ADHD sufferers!

Helena Bester, South Africa’s leading expert on ADHD, shares with great compassion some success stories from the thousands of ADHD sufferers who have crossed her path. With this readable, practical and useful book she shares the latest information on ADHD in children and adults.

In a conversational tone, practically illustrated with case studies, she shares the latest treatment options from physical therapies to relaxation techniques, diet and new medications.

One of the new alternative treatments that she discusses in depth is neuro-feedback therapy. It is used for all forms of ADHD and, although less commonly, is also used successfully in the treatment of anxiety disorders, insomnia, depression, epilepsy, brain injuries, autism, intermittent explosive disorder, and addiction.

The author also provides guidance on how to handle ADHD-children in the classroom and how to deal with the Department of Education.

With her practical approach she equips parents, teachers, spouses and family members with survival strategies to reduce their own stress in dealing with “difficult” situations. New hope for ADHD in children and adults arms its readers with up-to-date knowledge, expert and sympathetic guidance, and the confidence they need.

Also available in Afrikaans: Nuwe hoop vir ADHD by kinders en volwassenes.
