This video provides both professionals and parents with a helpful look at how these problems can be handled. It explores the many challenges facing parents of children with the combined diagnosis of ADHD and developmental delay.
When children diagnosed with ADHD are also developmentally delayed, the difficulties facing their parents can seem insurmountable. This videotape provides both professionals and parents with a helpful look at how these problems can be handled. It explores the many challenges facing parents of children with the combined diagnosis of ADHD and developmental delay (including difficulties with language, coordination, and learning), and depicts how parents can learn not only how to cope effectively, but also how to achieve a closer and more meaningful relationship with their children.
This important videotape shares the intimate, behind-the-doors experience of what it is really like for two families with ADHD-delayed children in jargon-free language from the parents themselves. Viewers will learn the actual problems these parents struggle with and the solutions they have devised, and see firsthand how parents monitor play activities, handle sensory-motor delay, cope in public places, and manage daily routines.
The accompanying manual summarizes and expands on the information presented in the video. Particularly helpful as a resource and as a guide for work with parent groups, it suggests issues for discussion, and includes specific questions to be explored. "An excellent videotape portraying the problems and frustrations of two families who are dealing with children who have ADHD and developmental delays....Useful in preservice or inservice training of various professional groups including child psychologists, social workers, teachers, and others who may end up working with such families."
