  • offers a unique developmental perspective and covers ADHD throughout the life span from infancy to adulthood.

  • proposes a complete and coherent approach to treatment (the multi-level approach) that combines elements of the most important evidence-based treatments but also presents a number of innovations in an attempt to overcome several of the shortcomings of the existent interventions.
