Around the Clock: Parenting the Delayed ADHD Child

Resource Type

Video - Parent


"This is the story of two families coping with their preschool sons who carry the diagnosis of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and developmental delay. There are pronounced differences between the children, but they also have many characteristics is common. Neither child can focus on an activity for any length of time, or accept transitions, or conform to routines. They both also exhibit developmental delays in language, gross and fine motor skills, and imaginative play. They respond to their world with superficial contact and a powerful resistance to change. In the video the parents tell their stories about the constant challenges they face, how they have learned to cope, and how they have achieved a closer and more meaningful relationship with their children. The tape offers an intimate experience of what it really is like for families who have children with the combined diagnosis of ADHD/developmental delay." -Child Development Media, Inc.
