Comprehensive, clear, concise and up to date. As a parent of a child recently diagnosed with ADHD, I gained a lot of knowledge and understanding of my daughter's condition now and what the future might looks like. Good advice on what to do and what not to do when managing behaviour in an ADHD child and a well structured and comprehensive section on medication. Thank you Dr Barkley!
"If you love someone with ADHD..."
If you love someone with ADHD please take the time to listen to this book in full. Opening the door to this scientific point of view has stopped me in my tracks from traveling down a failed path many parents before me have. My son is happy. I am happy. The school day is improving. I do not feel like the school is fighting us but working with us thanks to the tips and information provided in this book. My expectations are still realistic and I know what to do when symptoms seem to explode. I now know what ADHD is and that makes is manageable.
"Excellent source of critical information"
Excellent source for parents learning to understand ADHD. Abby Craden does a wonderful job of narrating such a technical and sensitive subject. The author hits all the important points with precision & compassion for parents and their kids.
"Step one towards understanding ADHD Kids"
This book should be your step one towards understanding ADHD. My daughter psychologist was impressed by the amount of information I had in very short time about ADHD and ADHD kids, thanks to Russell Barkley.
"Scientific & in-depth"
Gave me a new perspective on ADHD. A bit depressing but helpful. Maybe too in-depth for audio.
