Commonly referred to as ADHD, this condition affects teens in a number of ways, from excessive fidgeting and difficulty following instructions to avoiding tasks that require concentration and displaying impulsive behavior. While ADHD has become a household term, there are many questions about the nature of this condition and how it can affect young adults.

In ADHD: The Ultimate Teen Guide, John Aspromonte looks at the causes of this condition, examines its various symptoms, and dispels the myths associated with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. Most importantly, the author offers sound advice about how to cope with ADHD. Included in this volume are details about:
