Congratulations! You're now a middle school or high school student and are looking forward to exciting times and meeting lots of new friends. Maybe you were recently diagnosed with ADD, or maybe you have been living with it for some time, but either way, you are probably finding that coping with your life -- starting a new school year, dating (perhaps for the first time!), joining a football, basketball or other team, getting an after school job -- seems to be more challenging. Adolescents and ADD: Gaining the Advantage has been written just for you. It will give you a better understanding of your ADD and will provide you with some valuable advice to help you achieve success in and out of the classroom. Most importantly, other students your own age tell you, in their own words, what works best for them, and may work best for you, too.
In addition, this book will give you a better scientific understanding of ADD. It offers tips on getting yourself organized, on dating, on driving, on how to achieve greater success in your classes, on how to stand up for your rights, and much, much more. It answers some of the most frequently asked questions about ADD. And, for further help, it includes a resource list of other books on ADD. This book is essential reading for every adolescent with ADD (and their parents as well). You will learn that you are not alone, but with the help and support of others can find ways of gaining the advantage!
