Review

"Sandy Reif's vast knowledge of youngsters with ADD/ASHD is readily apparent in her impressive new book. In a refreshingly concise, easy-to-read style, she provides a wealth of information about ADD/ADHD that will serve as a wonderful resource for parents, teachers, and other professionals. The recommendations she offers for both the home and school environment are clear, practical, and achievable and based on a belief in the child's ability to succeed."
— Robert Brooks, Ph.D., author of The Self-Esteem Teacher and on the faculty of Harvard Medical School

"Sandy Rief has provided an encyclopedia of practical information, tips, and suggestions. The organization of The ADD/ADHD Checklist makes a very large volume of information easily accessible to the reader. Ms. Reif has deftly blended the current scientific knowledge concerning ADHD with a wealth of experiential knowledge developed from her years as an educator."
— Sam Goldstein, Ph.D., coauthor of Managing Attention Disorders in Children, Second Edition and on the faculty of the University of Utah

"I teach many in-service workshops on AD/HD Checklist for parents and educators. The ADD/ADHD Checklist is the book I have been waiting for. I'll be referring many people to it because its comprehensive, but simple, format of checklists will be valuable in providing that 'extra understanding' that parents and educators need to help those with AD/HD achieve successful outcomes."
— Linda P. Smith, educator and parent of an AD/HD child


From the Back Cover

The purpose of The ADD/ADHD Checklist is to better understand children and teenagers with ADD/ADHD and the kind of support and intervention that is necessary for their success. Written in a simple, concise, easy-to-read checklist format, the book is packed with practical advice and information on a wide range of topics and is organized into the following five sections:
  • Checklists for Basic Information on ADD/ADHD
  • Checklists for Parents
  • Checklists for Teachers
  • Academic Strategies for Home and School
  • Other Important Checklists for Parents and Teachers
As the author reminds us, "It is never too late to help a child with ADD/ADHD. If I am able to convey any message throughout this book, I wish it to be one of hope and optimism. When we work together, each and every one of our children can succeed!"

I picked up this book in order to research ADD/ADHD in response to my child's teachers suggestions that he may be such a child. This book is written in such clear terms that it de-mystifies this all enveloping area. It contains simple to follow checklists. But it's best feature for parents are the numerous suggestions for supporting your child at home and at school. I felt enpowered by it to gain help for my child who is possibly borderline ADD, but to me seems like a regular boy who does not like putting much effort into school work and resents homework. The label ADD is frightening, but by no means suggests that your child should be medicated. This book supported my search for alternatives.

This is an excellent, reader-friendly guide to ADD/ADHD. It is useful for parents and teachers alike, an it allows the reader to get answers to their questions quickly by simply looking through the detailed subject index to their specific issue. Topics like medication alternatives, specific approaches for parents, educational guidelines, and teaching strategies are but a few of the topics covered in this book. As an educator with experience dealing with ADHD children, I highly recommend this book.

This book is a very good "first book" to start with if you are researching how to help your child. It is written in simple terms that parents can understand. It gives helpful tips on setting up your child's environment in order to help them be more successful. I have read many books on this subject, and this is a staple book for any parent of a child with ADD/ADHD.

The checklist format of the book (really more like bullet points) makes it easy to locate and absorb the information you are looking for. Once you've read the book, the format is great for future look-ups.

Right off the bat, the book jumps into the nebulous nature of ADD/ADHD. These particular symptoms may be correlated with ADD/ADHD... or it may just be within the spectrum of normal kid behavior. ADD/ADHD is a multifaceted neurological problem, so while parents, teachers, guidance counselors, and daycare workers may suspect a child has the condition, only really good medical testing, psychological testing, coordination with the school, and family counseling can accurately diagnose the condition. Having that spelled out early in the book is welcome information. Section 1, List 11)

You get a little freaked out reading this book... because *every* kid is like this. They are, by nature, childish. Impulsive, inappropriate, wiggly... poor concentration, inconsistent, daydreaming. And we grown-ups get this under control, but in times of stress, you see all the same childish behaviors coming out of adults, too. So when a parent is frustrated by their children's "childishness," it is appropriate to remember that they are only children.

Still, there is a difference between "childishness" and Add/ADHD. This book assumes that you have (or are working toward) a diagnosis of ADD/ADHD and lists all kinds of information, categorically. Information for parents, for teachers, and for ideas to try. It's good information for any parent because... well, children are childish.

I'm not a teacher (apart from Sunday school), but there was good information in there for parents.

I have purchased many books on ADD/ADHD, and have found this one to be the best! The rest of the books on ADD have all found their way to the tip or to fete bookstores over the years. This book provides both practical and detailed advice for parents in the form of useful checklists. Other books on this subject matter tend to be too fatalistic and theoretical. This is pro-active and practical!

I thoroughly recommend this book.

When our son was diagnosed with ADHD, we were surprised. He made straight A's in school and was never a behavior problem. He was the one who begged us to get him tested. Once he was diagnosed, we read up on it His doctors recommended this book. It was an eye opening experience. Our son was actually a classic ADHD child. While he was not a behavioral problem, he did lack the organization skills needed as school became more difficult. His messy room, which we thought was a lack of desire to keep clean, was a symptom of the problem. We now spend less time "blaming" and more time trying to give our son the skills he needs to succeed.
