Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 5 Up-Dendy, a former teacher and mental health counselor, collaborated with her son, who was diagnosed with ADD as a child, to produce this "survival guide" to help kids with attention deficit cope with life. The book introduces 12 young people (ranging in age from 12 to 18) and describes their struggles with ADD/ADHD issues. Chapter two deals with 13 common challenges of these disorders (e.g., disorganization, impulsivity, inattention, procrastination) and includes advice from the teens. Next, the authors move to potential hot-button issues, including schools and IEPs, medication, driving, and friendships. The appendixes are chock-full of easy-to-understand information about how the brain works, the difference between the two conditions, and strategies for success in school. Black-and-white photos of the teen contributors and computer-generated cartoons appear throughout. This is a pick-it-up, read-a-bit, and set-it-down kind of nonfiction, and the text is to the point and list filled. A very practical resource.-Linda Beck, Indian Valley Public Library, Telford, PA

this book is the best insight for a parent dealing with the frustrations of a bright teen struggling with ADD issues. The opportunity to read the words of teens who have dealt with the struggle give moral support to parents that there is hope. This is a must buy!

Format: Paperback
I ordered this book at the recommendation of the psychologist who tested our daughter for ADD. It is written for older children and teenagers who have ADD or ADHD. My daughter, age 17, found it interesting. It helped her know that she was not the only one with this condition and gave her many tips for coping with life. Although I found much of it redundant, the book helped me see ADD from the perspective of a teenager.

This book is a must for parents of ADHD children as well as educators. As both a parent of an ADHD child and a teacher, I found this book enlightening as well as practical. It is a very easy read, in fact, I read it in two days. It is easy to understand and is written in layman terms not scientific/medical jargon. It explains so many aspects ADHD is language that parents can understand and offers some sensible solutions to everyday problems. This book has become by ADHD bible.

This is an upbeat and hopeful book written for tweens and teens, but a good read for parents of kids with ADHD as well. The children in this book are high achievers or talented in some way, so they make good role models. Lots of hard science written in an interesting and age appropriate way. Also lots of tips for coping with situations that can be challenging for kids with ADHD.

This book is easy to read, in down-to-earth language, and Question & Answer format. Presents ideas from a teenager's 1st person perspective. Covers a variety of relevant topics. Besides helping parents and teachers, I think high schoolers, college kids, and maybe junior high kids will find this book to be useful.

I had purchased this book but before it arrived we received a similiar one. It was so EASY with AMAZON to print out the return label and follow the clear instructions and ship it back for a perfect refund! BTW, this book "A Bird's-Eye View of Life with ADD and ADHD" is a WONDER! If your child has been diagnosed with this disorder...THIS IS THE BOOK FOR YOU TO READ! I have two sons with ADD AND ADHD and this book tells you ALL you need to know! I love this book! I only wish that it had been around when 12 years ago when my first son was diagnosed with it. BUY IT! READ IT!...and give it to your teen to read or read it to him, because it is a most encouraging source of HOPE and KNOWLEDGE!
