From the Back Cover

Nationally recognized authority on ADD, Kathleen Nadeau, Ph.D., is a psychologist who specializes in treating teens and adults. She is the author of A College Survival Guide for Students with Add and LD, and is at work on her next book, Ready, Set, Go! - Making a Successful Transition to Independent Living for Young Adults with ADD. These books, along with Help4ADD@HighSchool, can help teens through the challenging years of high school, college and young adulthood. Dr. Nadeau maintains a private practice in suburban Maryland, near Washington, D.C.
High School feels like a constant hassle.
My parents are always bugging me about grades.
Everyone says, "You're so bright, you just need to try harder."
I can never get myself to study unless there's a test tomorrow.
Even when I do my homework, half the time I forget to turn it in.
Sometimes I wonder if I can really handle college.
I'm sick of hearing about ADD. I just want to be a normal teenager.
Even when I try to read my assignments, my mind wanders.
I feel exhausted most of the time, so how am I supposed to pay attention:
If these sound like comments that you might make, if you are a teenager with Attention Deficit Disorder, this book was written with you in mind. Designed like a web site that you can "surf," its short, easy-to-read, information-packed sections will tell you what you need to know about how to get your life together - for yourself, not for your parents and your teachers. You don't have to read the whole book to find the information you want. Just check out the "home page" and turn to the topics you're interested in.

This book can help make your High School years a time that you can feel good about, instead of one long struggle. Help4ADD@HighSchool includes tips on how to study smarter, not harder; information about your rights in school, and the ways that your high school can help you succeed; tips on getting along better at home; on dating; sex; getting enough sleep, the importance of exercise; and much more. It's a survival guide for high school students with ADD! This is the book you'll want to read, even if your mom bought it for you!

Format: Paperback
I recently read Help for ADD at High School by Kathleen Nadeau. There were many pieces of advice that were new to me and other things that my parents and tutors had taught me before. The advice that I had heard before, I have used during my years in high school. These simple tips are how I survived and passed every single one of my classes. I could tell that when Dr. Nadeau wrote this book, she understood the people who would be reading it. Usually when I read information books, I get bored and distracted easily. This probably has alot to do with my ADD. Dr. Nadeau remembered that the reader of this book, like myself, probably has ADD. In writing the book, she made a special effort to make sure I didn't loose interest. The content of the book helps students to understand their obstacles and teaches them how to overcome them. I would recomend this book to any high schooler who has ADD, it will truly help you through your difficulties.

Format: Paperback
As a school psychologist, I am always searching for excellent materials to share with students, parents and teachers. Help4ADD@High School addresses this important need. The font is easy to read and the format is organized and clear so that students with learning and attentional problems are engaged immediately. Issues relating to study skills, homework, social problems and medication are discussed so that students understand how to self advocate and make intelligent choices for the future. I strongly recommend this book for students, teachers, psychologists, educational therapists, administrators, and parents.

Format: Paperback
This book was very helpful to both me and my teen. The information is presented in a very clear, teen-friendly and organized manner that's easy to read. It made me aware of what issues I should be discussing with my teen with ADD and gave me suggestions I can make that are helpful. This book also gave my teen insight into typical struggles and solutions that he's dealing with as a result of living with ADD. From basic information about how to know if you have ADD to social and school issues, this book covers all areas of concern in a user-friendly, straightforward and practical manner.

For its format alone, this is a must-buy for teachers and the administrators who work with them! As a middle school AP, I've visited far too many classrooms where teachers try to keep students' attention nailed to dreary handwritten overheads in black marker no less. Yawn. Every page of this book demonstrates what good overheads should look like (minus the color I'd like to see)while the text explains WHY this is imperative for ADHD students. GET IT! I love it. I ordered two more for my school.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book takes a very down to earth look at life as and with an ADD teen. It starts with an easy diagnostic test to see if your child is likely to be ADD in case you're just wondering about it - which you are since you're reading this. The book is written in a way that might even be engaging enough for your teen to actually read! At the very least, if you read it (it takes about 45 minutes to read cover to cover), you'll be less frustrated by the challenges of guiding your child... which is worth every penny this book will cost you.
