Editorial Reviews

Review

This is a marvelously written, easily read and richly informative book on understanding and managing the executive, organization, attention, and other deficits associated with ADHD/ADD in children and adolescents. The information provided here is refreshingly science-based and remarkably useful instead of just being recycled or wholly invented clinical folklore. The author has not only worked with legions of families having ADHD children, but has lived with the disorder in her own family as well and so knows well of what she preaches in these pages. Both parents and teachers will find here numerous recommendations for addressing the home and school problems often associated with this disorder. In short, if you have a child with ADHD, you need to read this book. --Russell A. Barkley, Ph.D.
Clinical Professor of Psychiatry, Medical University of South Carolina
Author of Taking Charge of ADHD

After reading Teaching Teens, you'll be empowered to create a climate in which your student can do well. This book should be in the backpack of every parent and teacher who is involved with children, teens, or young adults with ADHD. --ADDitude Magazine, Summer 2011

I am only half way through reading this book and it has helped me immensely. The iceberg diagram helped my ADD child and me prepare for a 504 meeting at the school. It helped us come up with all of the problems she is experiencing with ADD and Executive Function Deficits so that we could point to the diagram and show how they all are related. Also the description of accommodations that can be made by the teachers is amazing. I am ordering extra copies of the book to give to the teachers so I can say to them, "Here is a book I think you need to read so you can provide the accommodations my daughter deserves."

I have a teen with ADHD, and I also have ADHD. The book had some very useful information, BUT, also did a lot of cross referencing to other sections of the book - I would start to read one section, and by the time I finished reading, I might have looked at 5 or 6 sections, and not finished any of them. Once you get used to that, it is a good book. There are also several other ones that are just as useful as well. You do not need to buy the Parent version and the Teacher version of this book - I have both, and they have a lot of the same information in both. The parent version had a section on dealing with driving, curfews, etc. and theTeacher one has more on techniques for the classroom.

This book is written by a teacher, and a mother, and she has combined her strengths and knowledge to write these informative, precise and useful "one-pagers" or "two-pagers" on a specific aspect of working with a student with executive functioning deficits. The short summaries are great to give to a principal or administrator to explain what the disorder is. Her advice is very practical, and she finds lots of ways of working within the general education environment to help these kids.

My teenage grandson is more ADD & Executive Function Deficits than HD. He has struggled thru school and is now a junior in high school. This by far, is his worst year. My grandson does not go to a public school, which have plans set up for students with ADHD.
I purchased this book for my daughter to help her and the teachers at his high school set up a plan. The principal and teachers at the private school he attends are now working with him and are using some of the material in this quick reference guide, to get him thru his last two years of high school.

or unseen symptoms. Very helpful for teachers as well. Great list of
accomodations.
