This is a must have for teachers (of all areas regular and special education) and parents. I found this book very helpful in dealing with my son's issues and working with the students I do daily. Great ideas in making appropriate modifications, dealing with the impulse/hyperactivity, and dealing at home and in the classroom. I understand Rief has a new book and I plan to read it.
For any parent who has an ADHD/ADD child, this book is a must! It gives simple solutions to difficult problems. It gives solutions for teachers for in the classroom. And gives parents ideas to help their child or children at home or in the classroom. It also gave me ideas on what the teacher could be doing in the classroom to help out my son. I truely loved this book!
