Kathi J. Kemper, MD, MPH translates cutting-edge ideas into a practical and accessible book.
Winston-Salem, NC– September 10, 2010 – A practical, authoritative resource for parents of children with ADHD and ADD awaits readers in a new Xlibris release. Authored by the world’s leading authority on complementary medicine for children, Kathi J. Kemper, MD, MPH, Addressing ADD Naturally provides a solid scientific basis for using natural therapies to help their child succeed.
The first few chapters of this book introduce a basic concept about ADHD and ADD, identifying common family goals for improving their child’s attention and self-discipline. It frames these goals as skills to be mastered, building on the child’s existing strengths. After which, the five fundamental strategies for success are introduced. The next chapters provide practical tools for translating these fundamentals into habits and tracking success, and give parents an idea on how and when to use additional help.
Addressing ADD Naturally also includes links to helpful resources and provides over 200 references to recent scientific studies to support its recommendations. It also provides charts and worksheets as tools to realize a child’s strengths, turning stumbling blocks into stepping stones to success.
“In writing a practical guide for parents of children and adolescents diagnosed with ADHD, Dr. Kemper has successfully translated cutting-edge ideas and research about emerging treatments from obscure medical references into a book that is both accessible and scholarly. This book will have a lasting impact not only on how ADHD is treated but also how parents, teachers, clinicians, and researchers think about ADHD.” —Dr. James Lake, author of the Textbook of Integrative Mental Health Care
