Rave Reviews From the Experts!

"An excellent and practical workbook developed out of years of experience and caring. I highly recommend this workbook."
--Edward Hallowell, of Driven To Distraction & Answers To Distraction

"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!!!"
