I felt this book was very helpful and informative. It was a compact explanation that was easy to read and comprehend for stressed-out parents. Different forms of ADHD were covered. Dr. Handelman discusses medication, diet, and supplements that may help. I felt the book was well-rounded.
When parents first come to me for coaching and their child has just been diagnosed, what they need first of all is comprehensive up to date reliable information about ADD and fast!
And I know the feeling, when my kids were first diagnosed- I just needed the information, and I needed it yesterday, but finding that resource was not so easy, there were so many books already on the market, which to choose? And how do you trust the internet?
So far all the books I have read about ADD, although they pretty much all have great information,ironically they can often be difficult to get through, especially if you are ADD yourself, therefore as a coach I am loathe to recommend them.
But not so with this book, this is delight to read, it's warm and witty as well as being full of practical down to earth tips and strategies that are simple and relevant.From parenting, to medications, to school issues and so much more, it not only demystifies all of the hot topics, it's been designed to be easy to read and ADD friendly and you can tell!
This will be my new "Go to" resource to offer the overwhelmed parents I work with, who need all the right information,right now.! ..Dr Handelman's personal experiences with his patients,and his passion for the children he works with shine through to give us a great new book that will surely be a new bestseller in the ADD world.
Dr. Handelman also covers and debunks many myths about ADHD and addresses the confusion and guilt that parents may feel as they may run into roadblocks when seeking the best solutions for their child/teen.
I recommend this book for anyone with ADHD or who has a child or teen with ADHD. It is well written, easy to read and a practical reference tool rather than just a one time read. I would purchase it again.
