"An excellent and practical workbook developed out of years
of experience and caring. I highly recommend this workbook."

"Finally, a book for the kids! One that they can really use to
boost their self-esteem, along with good information for their
parents to help them understand also. It's just like having your
own portable support group--take it with you, and read and
write when you feel you need an ego boost. An easy-to-read
book for everyone: parents, teachers, students--it goes a long
way in advocating understanding of AD/HD--what it is, and
what it is NOT!!!"
