Format: CD-ROM
While I'm sure these techniques have some benefit to adults with a desire to change, children get nothing from this book. And for those of us with LD children desperate for help, this felt like snake oil. Sorry to be that harsh, but if felt like the author has a life coaching, biofeedback business and thought, "gosh these techniques should work for anyone. I'll tap into the huge LD market with my title." There are many, many great ADHD books out there for parents, teens and elementary kids. You could get 4 books that offer real advice for the price of this one.

This rating system forced me to give it a star, it didn't really deserve any.
