From the Author
For more than twenty-five years, I've worked with children and adults who had been diagnosed with learning disabilities, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, oppositional defiant disorder, Asperger's syndrome, language disorders, Tourettes syndrome, obsessive-compulsive disorder and a combination of these disorders. Even though my job description was working with the students, a major part of my routine included working with the parents of these children or the spouses of the adults. One characteristic was always palpable in working with them--fear. Yes, sometimes the diagnosed person had feelings of fearfulness, but the fear I experienced most often festered in the parents and close relatives. What kind of things were they afraid of?
- Will he have a normal life? Marriage and family of his own?
- Will he be picked on and bullied because of this?
- Will teachers/scout leaders/other parents judge him unfavorably?
- Can she succeed academically or have a career?
- Will my parents compare him unfavorably to the other grandkids?
- Will my parents think I caused this? Have I?
- Will I always have to take care of her?
I'd like to share some good news with grandparents of Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder children.
1. ADHD children can achieve great successes and fulfillment.
2. ADHD children can learn skills and tools that can enhance the quality of their lives.
3. You, as concerned grandparents, are not alone.
4. You, as a grandparent, can help make it happen!
So many wonderful books and websites can tell you all the science and statistics about ADHD. They provide any specific information you could ever want concerning teaching methods, laws regarding disability rights, brain development, or even summer camps for children with these issues. This book is written with a different purpose in mind. It is written for grandparents, but it is written for parents who need to let their parent know what they do that helps and what they do that harms.
