Overview

Congratulations! You're now a middle school or high school student and are looking forward to exciting times and meeting lots of new friends. Maybe you were recently diagnosed with ADD, or maybe you have been living with it for some time, but either way, you are probably finding that coping with your life -- starting a new school year, dating (perhaps for the first time!), joining a football, basketball or other team, getting an after school job -- seems to be more challenging. Adolescents and ADD: Gaining the Advantage has been written just for you. It will give you a better understanding of your ADD and will provide you with some valuable advice to help you achieve success in and out of the classroom. Most importantly, other students your own age tell you, in their own words, what works best for them, and may work best for you, too.

In addition, this book will give you a better scientific understanding of ADD. It offers tips on getting yourself organized, on dating, on driving, on how to achieve greater success in your classes, on how to stand up for your rights, and much, much more. It answers some of the most frequently asked questions about ADD. And, for further help, it includes a resource list of other books on ADD. This book is essential reading for every adolescent with ADD (and their parents as well). You will learn that you are not alone, but with the help and support of others can find ways of gaining the advantage!

Describes the particular concerns of adolescents diagnosed/w attention deficit disorder/offers coping strategies/etc.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 8 Up-Despite the author's expansive knowledge of her subject, she never loses sight of her audience. She defines Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), explains diagnostic criteria, and discusses treatments in straightforward prose that is never patronizing. She uses a question-and-answer format throughout much of the book, anticipating virtually any question readers may have. She is realistic in her discussion of the havoc this disability may wreak, yet she maintains that young people can learn to live with it, especially if they are willing to work hard and keep a positive attitude. Her discussion of various medications and their possible side effects is especially useful and informative. The author is extremely positive when outlining the steps individuals with ADD may take in order to gain greater autonomy, and does an excellent job of putting the disorder in perspective. Teens may particularly appreciate the inclusion of first-person accounts by ADD youths, as they share practical coping strategies, including developing time management skills. The book's one drawback is its black-and-white photographs, which are of poor quality and feature mostly white teens. That concern aside, this text should be a fine addition.Jerry D.
