While this book has not "fixed" my son, it has helped me see the strengths my son has. Perhaps the most helpful aspect of this book was learning to hold a positive image of him by identifying his strengths and using positive words like creative, imaginative and energetic to describe him. I found he had many strenghts like incidental learning which I was not aware of. Knowing my son's strengths and needs allowed me to chose a new elementary school better suited to his learning style. For example, this new school takes lots of field trips which allows him to take advantage of incidental learning. They also have yoga twice a month which is one of the attention building activities listed in Armstrong's book. In addition, movement is built into the school day. My son is now doing well at school and views himself as a competent learner.
Armstrong offers a refreshing perspective on ADHD that allows a person to appreciate a child while meeting his/her needs. I wish all my child's teachers would read this book.
