Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 7 Up-This readable text offers insights for those readers who have been diagnosed with ADD/ADHD, those who wonder if they might have one or both disorders, or those who know someone who does. Morrison's tone is optimistic throughout as she stresses various coping mechanisms and the value of a positive attitude. Specific case studies add a personal touch to the narrative. A multimodal treatment combining medication, counseling, time and behavior management, as well as an individualized educational plan for students is recommended. Throughout the book there are lists and charts to help ADD/ADHD people assess their own needs, accomplishments, relationships, and goals. It seems to have been written for YAs who have not been fortunate enough to have been diagnosed at a young age. The list for further reading is up to date, and includes Patricia Quinn and Judith Stern's Putting on the Brakes (Magination, 1991), an excellent book for younger children trying to cope. Overall, the positive tone, the ease of having ready-made charts for self-analysis, and the hope that pervades this title make it a valuable resource.-Marilyn Fairbanks, East Junior High, Brockton, MA
