I wish I had found this book when we first got the diagnosis of ADHD. There is so much information in this book that even the doctors don't cover. It was so helpful in explaining some behaviors that we didn't know were related to the disease. Another great feature of this book is that the information was broken down into categories. When it was directed to the child it was in terms the child could easily understand and relate to. It is an outstanding source of information and should be required reading for families.

I highly recommend this book for your child if he/she has ADD. My son and I read this together. I liked the checklist the the child can check off how he feels and how he felt how others viewed him. It was enlightening. My son and I learned a lot when we shared this book. He realized he wasn't the only one out there that felt this way.
