Praise for Nowhere to Hide

"[Some 10-15% of America's kids] fight the battle of learning disabilities and attention deficits every day. Through no fault or choice of their own, they become a daily source of puzzlement and frustration for the parents and teachers in their lives. In Nowhere to Hide, Schultz brings his unparalleled experience, knowledge, background, and wisdom to this issue. He provides the reader with comprehensible explanations of the latest neurobiological research and translates it into practical strategies parents and professionals can use to assist these students in reaching their fullest potential."—Richard D. Lavoie, M.A., M.Ed., educational consultant and author, The Motivation Breakthrough and It's So Much Work to Be Your Friend

"Jerry has helped thousands of teachers, students, parents, and others triumph (by turning) what seemed at first a shortcoming, even a disability, into an asset."—from the foreword by Edward Hallowell, M.D., coauthor, Driven to Distraction and Delivered from Distraction

"In Nowhere to Hide, Jerome Schultz brings to light the extraordinary stresses experienced by children with learning disabilities and ADHD. Kids with learning disabilities struggle academically, but they also experience tremendous fear—and so do their parents! I wish my wife and I had had this practical, comforting book when we were raising our two children."—Michael Thompson, Ph.D., coauthor, Raising Cain and It's a Boy!., coauthor, Driven to Distraction and Delivered from Distraction

From Barnes & Noble

Stress accompanies every ADHD and LD student to school. Even the most basic classroom assignments or discussions can generate anxieties that these youngsters are reluctant to voices. Teacher, school consultant, and neuropsychologist Jerome Schulz has dealt on several levels with the persistent problems that these children must confront daily. His useful book Nowhere To Hide offers not only new ways to identify causes of such difficulties, but also effective strategies to reduce stress and create an authentically interactive learning environment.
