All Dogs Have ADHD takes an inspiring and affectionate look at Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), using images and ideas from the canine world to explore a variety of traits that will be instantly recognisable to those who are familiar with ADHD. Following the style of the award-winning All Cats Have Asperger Syndrome, charming colour photographs of dogs bring to life familiar ADHD characteristics such as being restless and excitable, getting easily distracted, and acting on impulse. This delightful book combines humour with understanding to reflect the difficulties and joys of raising a child with ADHD and celebrates what it means to be considered 'different'. This absorbing and enjoyable book takes a refreshing approach to understanding ADHD.
All Dogs Have ADHD, like its predecessor, All Cats Have Asperger's Syndrome (Hoopmann, 2006) is designed as a teaching aid to help young children to understand their classmates' behaviour or, if you prefer, behavioural disorders. Bright pictures of jolly exuberant dogs with simply worded one-sentence captions in large print make this an ideal tool for the purpose... All Dogs Have ADHD is a handy teaching tool.
