Marching to a different tune: diary about an ADHD boy

FLETCHER, Jacky
This text is a day-by-day account of how Stefan Fletcher, a boy diagnosed with ADHD, unusual and difficult behaviour affects and disrupts family life. The author describes in detail the struggles, embarrassments and triumphs her family experiences throughout a four-year period of Stefan's childhood. The diary ends with an expression of the family's love for Stefan - as he approaches adolescence, they will learn new ways to cope with the challenges of his behaviour, applying the knowledge they have gained through experience. The book gives a different perspective to the understanding of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder - it describes this complex set of behaviours from the inside. The last chapter gives a clinical description of ADHD; the appendices contain useful addresses for more information and support networks, and a list of recommended reading.
