Review

Sending an ADHD child off to college can be terrifying. Ready for Take-Off provides a practical, down-to-earth game plan that allows parents and kids to make the break with maximum success and minimal disruption. This book tells parents exactly what to do and-just as important-what not to do! --Thomas W. Phelan, PhD, author, 1-2-3 Magic: Effective Discipline for Children 2-12 and Surviving Your Adolescents

Ready For Take-Off is the indispensable guide for teens with ADHD and their parents in making the transition to college and then managing college well. Written by real pro's in the ADHD field, this book is practical, useful, needed, and utterly reliable. I recommend it highly! --Edward Hallowell, MD; Harvard Medical School; founder, The Hallowell Centers; author, Married to Distraction: Restoring Intimacy and Strengthening Your Marriage in an Age of Interruption

An Honors NAPPA (National Parenting Publications Awards) Winner, 2010. "Fills the huge gap that suddenly appears between the parental involvement (and sometimes micro-managing) of high school, and the independence of college." --National Parenting Publications Awards, 2010

Is your child bright enough for college but needs your help to get through the daily grind of high school? Do you worry whether she or he will thrive on campus alone? Me, too. That's why it was such a relief to find this book. _Ready for Take-Off_ provides a checklist of specific college survival skills and advice on coaching your child to acquire them. Dr. Maitland's goal is to help you gradually put your teen in charge of managing his or her own life so the transition to college will go more smoothly. I wish schools would put this book in the hands of all parents of teens with ADD or LD.

Good to read, best to buy in the senior year of high school though. It has a lot of great information about things to do to prepare them to leave, but that those need to be started long before you pack the car. I wish we would have read it earlier as many of the challenges that she warns about have presented themselves in our college freshman.

Excellent! The authors of this book are absolutely dead on with their experience and insight on ADHD, LD students and recommendations for planning now, complete with discussion points and planning outlines, for the critical transition to college. This book was easy to read and it is organized in a very useful, practical manner. I have shared it with all of the parents I know facing a similar college transition with their ADHD and or LD teenager. I highly recommend.
