The Elephant in the ADHD Room (ON SALE)

Boredom and boredom avoidance drive the behaviours of inattention, impulsivity, and hyperactivity – the diagnostic criteria of ADHD.

This is the first ADHD resource to thoroughly explore the connection between the two.

This book is full of innovative approaches for professionals working in clinical, educational and therapeutic settings to help those with ADHD beat boredom and engage with tasks and goals they want or need to achieve.

These are presented with strategies specifically designed for toddlers, children, teenagers and adults. They can then be incorporated into schoolwork, jobs, relationships and everyday life.

This practical resource will provide professionals who diagnose, treat, coach, and teach those with ADHD or those who suffer from frequent or pervasive boredom, with the tools to alleviate the discomfort of boredom in order to improve both concentration and mood.
