This journal invites the reader to respond to the short chapters by providing thought provoking questions and space to journal themselves. This interactive element makes this an excellent resource for parents, therapists and counselors to use with boys and girls diagnosed with ADHD. This book helps kids to know that they are not alone. It offers practical advice and strategies for living with ADHD, modifying behavior, succeeding in school, having fun, working with doctors, counselors, and dealing with taking medication.
