"I picked up this book in order to research ADD/ADHD in response to my child's teachers suggestions that he may be such a child. This book is written in such clear terms that it de-mystifies this all enveloping area. It contains simple to follow checklists. But it's best feature for parents are the numerous suggestions for supporting your child at home and at school. I felt empowered by it to gain help for my child who is possibly borderline ADD, but to me seems like a regular boy who does not like putting much effort into school work and resents homework. The label ADD is frightening, but by no means suggests that your child should be medicated. This book supported my search for alternatives."
