About the Author

Harvey C. Parker, Ph.D. has been one of the country's leading ADHD advocates. In 1987, he and two parents of children with ADHD started CHADD, a national organization founded to help children and adults with ADHD. He played an instrumental role in helping the US Department of Education better understand the educational needs of children with ADHD. He was inducted into the CHADD Hall of Fame in 1994 and has served as a member of the CHADD Board of Directors for the past eighteen years.

Dr. Parker is an author and co-author of over ten books and Internet websites on ADHD, study strategies, and behavior management. He lectures nationally to parents and professional groups and maintains a private practice in clinical psychology in Plantation, Florida. His other books include: The ADHD Handbook for Schools, The ADHD Workbook for Parents and Study Strategies Made Easy and Study Strategies for Early School Success with Leslie Davis and Sandi Sirotowitz.

The Goal Card Program is a school-home contingency program designed to improve specific behaviors at school with parent-applied rewards and consequences. The cards have proven successful with thousands of children in a clinical setting when used consistently by parents and teachers. Based on the concept that impulsive children require structure and positive reinforcement to maintain appropriate school behavior, the Goal Card Program offers a motivating opportunity for students to improve in school.
