Otto Learns About His Medicine: A Story About Medication for Children With ADHD, Third Edition
For individuals in the U.S. & U.S. territories
Otto is a high-octane young car whose motor runs too fast. He also has trouble paying attention in school, is easily distracted, and says and does things without thinking. Otto and his parents visit a pit crew of special mechanics who prescribe a medicine to help slow down Otto's racing motor and help him find ways to be more focused and organized.
This new edition of a classic resource for young children and their families includes the latest advances in the understanding of ADHD. An expanded Note to Parents by the author discusses treatment approaches and current findings about medications, including their possible side effects.
