    Highly Recommended - Very Resourceful

    I bought this book so I can find different approaches to working with my younger brother who was diagnosed with ADHD the year before. Although I was more or less acquainted with most of the subjects in the book, it really addressed many of the concerns we had as a family. The book is a great guide and addresses all concerns including medications, making sure to find the right diagnosis and treatments. I think the book is extremely helpful to families who are struggling trying to find a diagnosis, treatment and if at all other behavioral concerns.
