Your A.D.D. Child Mar 8, 2007
This was a great book, very helpful. I ordered one for my child's teacher and for his teacher next year so she could be reading it over the summer. I intend to give this book to each new teacher my child has and he is only in second grade.
practical and easy to read Jan 10, 2007
After reading this book I feel more prepared to face the day to day challenges living with a child with ADD. This book offered practical ideas and easy to understand information about Attention Deficit Disorder. I have already utilized many of the ideas mentioned in the book. My only concern with this book was the publishing date. This book was published in the 90's. I am aware that a lot of new research has been done since this book was published so the chapter about medication is dated.
Best yet! Sep 21, 2005
I've read many, many books (most recommended by my pediatrician) on this subject for my 2 sons who are affected. This is, by far, the best, most insightful book I've read yet on ADHD! I actually called and recommended THIS BOOK to my pediatrician!
If you have a child, or student, affected by ADHD, this is a MUST READ! It will change your perspective and help you gain the patience with that child that you thought was long gone.
I would also recommend Celebrate! ADHD by Kirk & Anita Martin.
Practical Help for Parents of ADD Kids Sep 18, 2001
This was the best book on ADD my wife and I have read. It not only explained ADD in understandable terms, it also provided us with practical ways to help our child succeed at school, at church, and in society. We appreciated the examples given because they enabled us to explain our situation to others in ways that help others (family and friends) to understand that ADD is not a curse and that an ADD child is not damaged goods. This is a must-read for anyone related in any way to someone with ADD.
