Rave Reviews From the Experts!

"An excellent and practical workbook developed out of years of experience and caring. I highly recommend this workbook."
--Edward Hallowell, of Driven To Distraction & Answers To Distraction

"Finally, a book for the kids! One that they can really use to boost their self-esteem, along with good information for their parents to help them understand also. It's just like having your own portable support group--take it with you, and read and write when you feel you need an ego boost. An easy-to-read book for everyone: parents, teachers, students--it goes a long way in advocating understanding of AD/HD--what it is, and what it is NOT!!!"
--Theresa C. Cavanaugh, LDT-C, President, Learning Disabilities Association of New York

"Kerin's understanding, borne of her many years of working in the field of AD/HD, has given her the ability to write a workbook that is an essential and comprehensive resource."
--Roy J. Boorady, M.D., Assistant Professor of Psychiatry, New York University School of Medicine Director, Psychopharmacology Service, NYU Child Study Center

Editorial Reviews

Kam Aures
I really like the interactive approach that Bellak-Adams has taken in her Diary method. I have always been a fan on hands-on approaches to things and believe that it the way that people learn best. Her method is very positive and I think that any parent with a child who has ADD or AD/HD should give "AD/HD SUCCESS! Solutions for Boosting Self- Esteem: The Diary Method Ages 7-17" a try!
Nancy Oelklaus
AD/HD Success is a book for improving communication between parent and child so that understanding and mutual respect may grow. What parent doesn't want that? Our fast-paced, multi-faceted, technology-distracted lives leave us shouting at each other over media noise and talking at each other while on our way to somewhere else. Thank God for this book: a workbook for parent and child that may be shared with teachers and that progresses as the child grows. I highly recommend this book.
Vicki Landes
"AD/HD Success!" is a quick and easy read for parents who need more than just the `science' of AD/HD. Bellak-Adams gives proactive measures for parents to get their kids on the right track NOW. Since the book doesn't take long to read, the program implementation is that much faster. Age appropriate information further helps parents give their kids a focused agenda for boosting self esteem. The book is also sprinkled with quotations by successful people - some of which had ADD tendencies -
