From the Back Cover

CHANGING BEHAVIORS The Kit gives you detailed guidelines to get kids started in developing new behaviors and abandoning inappropriate behaviors, including 9 ready-to-use exercises like "Sample Modeling Behavior" and techniques for using time out, grounding and ignoring productively.

BUILDING SOCIAL SKILLS A variety of reproducibles are included to help kids learn social graces, how to play by the rules, control impulsivity and anger, overcome the common problem of low self-esteem and more. You'll also find a "Behavior Check Card" and "Social Graces Checklist" to foster home-school cooperation, and "Positive Strokes" examples to build healthy self-esteem.

SOLVING HOMEWORK ISSUES The Kit presents practical strategies and forms to solve problems with homework, such as losing or forgetting work, lying about homework, and requiring constant supervision, including reproducible organizers like a "Homework Problem Checklist" and "Homework Check Card."

IMPROVING CLASSROOM BEHAVIOR You'll also find tested materials and techniques to keep the child focused and on task in the classroom while ensuring that all students are learning, including a ready-to-use "Behavior Contract," "Weekly Notes," and "Home-School Behavior Chart."

COPING WITH KIDS Plus the Kit gives you a host of survival strategies to help teachers and parents reduce their own stress, get support from others, and develop an assertive style to keep kids from "pressing their buttons."

In short, the ADD/ADHD BEHAVIOR-CHANGE RESOURCE KIT gives you virtually all you need to help kids take charge of their own behavior and build effective life and social skills. As the author states, "When there is increased confidence in dealing with difficult ADD/ADHD behaviors and where there is consistent use of the most effective techniques, then opportunities for academic, personal, and other successes can be achieved for all individuals."

Format: Paperback
This has got to be the best book I've read on dealing with ADD/ADHD kids (and I've read many!). This book offers real strategies that any family can incoroporate. It is VERY useful how the explanations are laid out in a step by step manner. For example, it picks one specific behavior and then shows parents and teachers how to modify, model or shape that behavior by incoporating a specific strategy and walking you through it step by step. Medical information (including medications) is also informative, and I like the section explaining many of the other disorders that often go hand-in-hand with ADD. The author is a doctor and a specialist dealing with ADD kids. He even runs his own special ADD clinic and summer camp in Mississippi. Highly recommended!

Format: Paperback
This book should be extremely useful to parents and teachers who deal with children and teens with AD/HD. It gives firm but compassionate guidelines on how to help create positive behavioral change.
It gives specific, step-by-step insturctions on how to facilitate behavioral change. Although the book contains a number of useful checklists and rating scales, the author does not fall into the trap of "checklist rigidity." He uses these checklists flexibly within the context of a rich understanding of the child and his environment.
I enjoyed his sections on how to phrase commands in an assertive, not aggressive manner. The parent or teacher is invited to rewrite some of his or her commands in a different style. The author enlisted the help of child psychiatrists in writing the section on medications. Thus, the medication chapter is more accurate and comprehensive one finds in many books.
He gives lists of age-appropriate, non-food(thank goodness!)reinforcers to help reward elementary, milld and high school-aged students. The Appendix on neuropsychological reports gives an overview that would help a parent understand how testing is done and how the results might look.
I plan to use this book a lot! Carol E. Watkins, M.D.

If you have an ADD child, order this book NOW!! How do you teach a child that cannot sit still to save her life? How do you teach a child to concentrate? How do you reach a child whose brain is so disorganized she can't remember what you've just said to her? This book actually gives you the answers. Dr. Flick actually tells us HOW TO REACH (and teach!) ADD children. The book contains surveys, checklists, charts, and worksheets to help us help ourselves. This book is the "meat in the sandwich". I highly recommend it!!

This book has got it all. I was very impressed with the comprehensive nature of the book and in fact refer to it all the time. I like the positive behavioral supports it offers as I am often called upon to help with these students (I am a school social worker). I am considering doing a parent workshop on ADHD and will definately use this as my guide.
If you are a parent of an ADHD child I recommend this as well as any Russell A. Barkley book.
I would like to see a revised edition which includes information about the new medication, Concerta.
This is the most comprehensive ADHD resource out there! Worth every penny!

Format: Paperback
This is a comprehensive and excellent guide on ADD/ADHD for parents, teachers and professionals. The first part presents an update of the scientific knowledge on ADHD and its neurological roots, along with a detailed review of the diagnosis methods (neuropsych testing), the other disorders that go along with ADHD, and the different treatment options including but not limited to medications. The second part is a practical guide explaining step-by-step how to deal with typical behaviors, how to reinforce good behaviors and eliminate wrong ones. Dr. Flick shares his long experience as a practicionner with ADHD children. As the parent of an ADHD child, this book really helped me understand and do the right things. I highly recommend this book.
