This book has some good activities to help children with ADHD master key skills, but many of the activities are "paper and pencil" and therefore not particularly engaging. Other books on this topic that I recommend:

We have found this workbook to have a great variety of topics that are helping our son with many of his area's of need. When he has had a difficult day, we look through the topics, find one that seems most appropriate and work though that section of the workbook together. It has helped him focus on the topics, think through issues, and has helped us discover some of the things that he is thinking and feeling but had not been able to express.

I found this book to be not only useful in helping kids with ADHD but also with parents who wish to help their children cope better in life generally. The book has lots of practical skills,and activities for kids to do,but they are heavily pencil based which maybe difficult for some people. However, they are short exercises,which is great, from decision making, getting organised ,dealing with homework, controlling anger to specific behaviour. Many exercises could be done as part of a daily conversation or as a family activity to help reinforce what has been done from the book. Again, I think every family (ADHD or NOT) could benefit from many of these exercises. However there are two points which I think could be improved in this book.
1. The author constantly uses "kids with ADHD,many kids with ADHD,some kids with ADHD",and after a few exercises, it seems to drill into the child/parent that they are ADHD. So i would prefer the author dropped the ADHD label. After all the person understands the reason why they bought this book.

2 The author has many exercises for parents and children to do,but he gives very few examples or answers that some parents could use with younger children. It would be nice to give an example or two.

I would recommend this book but you should photo copy the exercises so you can do them again and again.

I am working with middle school students and ordered this by mistake. I meant to order the one for teens. However, I have found that the 6th graders are very receptive to the tasks in the book and find that I am using it more frequently as the year progresses. I will order the one for teens based on my success with the students using this book.

I find this workbook laughable. It's so hard to use this with kids who have ADHD (especially hyperactive) because they're all over the place! I could use this a bit more with my inattentive kids, but it really is not appropriate for the whole spectrum of children who have ADHD.

I bought this book in hopes of using it with a student who has ADHD. Overall, it is a bit too tedious for the 4th grader I got it for. ADHD and a program that is predominately paper-pencil tasks don't really go together.

I really enjoyed utilizing this workbook during my counseling sessions with children. The child I counseled possessed the behavioral and cognitive symptoms of ADHD and the worksheets were deemed both informative and fun. The workbook focuses on appropriate and inappropriate behavior, setting limits, self-esteem, and much more. I recommend it for anyone who is a Behavioral Assistant, Case Manager, School Counselor, Teacher, etc. It will definitely help you!
