For many years he wrote an award-winning column on family relationships and mental health for "The Oregon Statesman. He is the author of several books, including the highly praised "The Hyperactive Child and the Family.
Helping Your Hyperactive/Attention Deficit Child is by far the most comprehensive book on the subject of hyperactivity. Most books take a one-sided approach, be it nutritional, psychological, or medical. Dr. Taylor, however, believes that hyperactive activity/attention deficit disorder requires using all the tools from every method available to achieve the best results for the child. This book reflects this multi-dimensional approach. Among the areas covered are: How to determine if your child has hyperactivity/attention deficit disorder; (includes the Taylor Hyperactivity Screening Checklist)
Approaches to treatment, including medical, nutritional, and drug therapy
The psychological factors, including the child's self-esteem and the impact of his or her behavior on family
Your child at school, including effective teaching approaches, getting help, instilling discipline, and play activities
How to start or join support groups
And much, much more!
If you are the parent or teacher of a hyperactive/attention deficit child or are in the helping professions, this book is essential reading!
