After receiving yet another note from my daughter's school about how she isn't even trying to do her work, I went to the book store looking for a book that I could recommend to her teacher who clearly doesn't know what to expect. 5 minutes after opening the book I had tears rolling down my face. On page 51 alone the book addressed every complaint the teacher had written home about. This book described and explained everything that I haven't been able to make others understand. I'm so thrilled to finally have found a tool that will help me advocate for my daughter!

out of 850 children at our school, the only ones that take add/hd meds are boys. After being frustrated and watching my daughter start to fail I was finally able to convince teachers that she had a problem with add, just because your daughter is not bouncing off the walls doesn't meant there isn't a problem. This book help me to explain many painful experiences so that the staff was able to finally step in and help. My daughter is now in excelled classes, not on meds and yes we still have our interesting days but we are able to handle them better. Our social worker used this book to give an inservice during the summer. Teachers are often taught to identify boys who cause problems as add candidates. Girls who are day dreamers or chatty cathys are overlooked, and often highly intelligent children mimic add qualities, and are just 'hardwired' differenly, they can be seen as challenging authority and problems, too often used as tutors to their classmates, when they get home is when they have a melt down, but being people pleasers somehow hold it together all day at school and save it for mom. Get the book! It saved our family.... :)

This was an excellent place for me to start on my search for information regarding ADHD in girls. My niece is recently diagnosed and a lot of what I found elsewhere just didn't seem to fit. The descriptions found in this book fit almost too well. This book gave me a better understanding of my nieces behavior and gave me concrete ways to help. Topics discussed include school, medications, treatments as well as what ADHD in girls looks like. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who knows or works with a girl with ADHD.
