Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Publishers Weekly, 6/1/09
“offer[s] the straightforward advice, information and support eagerly sought by parents of special needs kids”

Blogcritics.org, 7/26/09
“A short, to the point, easy to read book promoting behavioral strategies to consider before seeking medication for ADHD. This book will be helpful to parents of young children who have been diagnosed with ADHD (or ADD) and to parents of undiagnosed children who display some degree of what I call 'ADD-ishness'.”

Columbus Parent(OH), August 2009
“Provides a comprehensive approach to treating ADHD effectively and without drugs.”

Blogcritics.org, 8/9/09
“Provides a variety of suggestions a parent, caregiver, teacher, or counselor can follow…I would highly recommend any parent, educator, doctor, psychologist, psychiatrist, or minister read Overcoming ADHD and apply its suggestions to their charges, if they seriously want to help a child or adult typically labeled ADHD. The book is written in layman’s terms. It is fascinating. It is extremely well organized. It is hopeful. It is easy to follow. It just might start a more promising life for a problem child.”

BookViews.com
“Addresses the fact that schools have been pushing the ADHD diagnosis (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) now for years and pressuring parents into drugging their children with Ritalin. The author brings 35 years of clinical practice as a child psychologist to bear on the topic.”

InfoDad blog, 9/17
“A bold book, willing to look past the apparent simplicity of using a pill to counter a life-altering condition toward a more difficult and time-consuming approach that has the potential to improve patients’ long-term living conditions…For parents determined not to give psychoactive medicines to children with attention-related disorders, Greenspan points the way toward a potentially excellent alternative approach to treatment, and provides the basics of how to go about implementing it…Greenspan’s ideas are excellent…A thoughtful approach to a serious health problem.”

Midwest Book Review
“It shows how kids can learn to engage, understand their senses and maintain focus without medication and offers an alternative set of ideas for parents and educators seeking different management approaches.”

Metapsychology Online Reviews, 3/28/10
“In reading this volume, parents can be helped in coming to better understand the most up-to-date behavioural patterns their child may develop as they continue to monitor progress, and analyse the changes in previously identified strengths and weaknesses that may underlie their hyperactivity…With the inclusion of several regularly updating website addresses to continue checking in the ‘Resources’ section at the end of the book, Greenspan has offered here a great opportunity for both parents and educational/psychological professionals [who] work with suspected ADHD/ADD cases without immediate resort to psychotropic drugs and/or medical specialists.”
