"DuPaul and Stoner have once again produced a significant, 'must-read' volume. Recognizing ADHD as a complex neurocognitive disorder, the authors eloquently describe the importance of early screening and assessment for informing individualized supports, accommodations, and evidence-based interventions. The volume includes excellent case examples, highly useful strategies for communication and collaboration with other professionals and parents, and resources such as referral letters and relevant websites. Highly recommended." --Linda A. Reddy, PhD, School Psychology Doctoral Program, Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey
