Summary: "The purpose of this book is to provide comprehensive, empirically grounded information on assessment and early intervention for young children with ADHD. Each chapter presents detailed guidelines for assessment and treatment that are data based and practical (i.e., that take into account the inevitable challenges to comprehensive evaluation and treatment in real-world settings). Case illustrations are used throughout to provide examples of early identification and intervention in action. The organization of this book takes into account several factors. First, we describe the home-based component of early intervention because our experience indicates that most referrals for ADHD will come from primary care physicians and parents, and thus treatment strategies will initially be implemented in the home. Further, some young children do not attend preschool or day care, and intervention would be limited to the home in such cases. Therefore, we present information on home-based intervention before discussing preschool-based strategies. Second, one of the goals of early psychosocial intervention is to delay or avoid pharmacotherapy given the limited data regarding efficacy and safety in early childhood. Thus, medication treatment is not addressed until later in the book. Finally, we present the outcome findings from our early intervention research in the final chapter because we evaluated our program as a comprehensive treatment package (rather than dismantling effects due to each component); this also ensured that the earlier chapters are fully focused on presenting clinically relevant details about intervention"--Introduction.
