Toby and his identical twin brother Booh were adopted when they were tiny babies. They look so alike that sometimes people can’t tell them apart. But there is one very big difference between them. Booh is always getting into trouble: upsetting other children, fidgeting in class and losing his temper. And as he gets older his behaviour just seems to get worse. What is wrong with Booh?
This story about Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) will be helpful for any child aged seven to 11 who finds it difficult to stay still or pay attention or whose behaviour frequently gets them into trouble. It will be equally useful for a child who knows someone with ADHD. The book includes a question and answer section which covers a wide range of queries and concerns about ADHD, and provides practical information and advice in a straightforward and child-friendly style.
My Brother Booh Has ADHD is one of a new series of books for children exploring health conditions that are common to many looked after children. Other titles in the series focus on emotional and behavioural difficulties, Foetal Alcohol Syndrome and dyslexia. The books in the series will be invaluable for social workers, foster carers, adopters, residential workers, health care practitioners and teachers to use with children who have these health issues or who know an affected child.
