    Highly Recommended

    Helps to understand the disorder. A must read for all, whether your child is ADHD or not. It helped us to understand our child and his difficulties he faces. It also helped us to see how we needed to approach situations to better our life as a family. I have to pick it up time after time to remind myself of certain topics and how to handle them. This book was recommended by a behavior therapist.
