Best book for kids on ADHD/ ADD Fantastic book for kids with ADHD/ ADD. It has really helped in our household and I cannot recommend it highly enough. It is easy enough for kids to read and has loads of great chapters - Eating right, Ways to succeed at school, How to make and keep friends etc etc.
It talks about ADHD in a non-confronting way and has been an enormous help. My daughter carries it with her and quotes from it all the time. She has become a little more settled since reading this book and I think she is starting to understand a bit more about why she behaves the way she does. ...more info

Great parent/child dialogue I am a therapist involved with identifying kids with learning problems and assisting them and their families in dealing with their special needs.

It frames AD/HD in a more positive light and offers practical strategies for answering questions that others ask and help the child themselves understand that the diagnosis of AD/HD is not "the end of the world!" It is more geared towards elementary age and uses artwork and reading level that appeals to this age group. The reasonable cost and small format makes distributing this book to all my clients possible....more info
