Editorial Reviews


“This wonderful, practical book is full of help and heart. Drawing on both sides of the brain, and integrating thinking and feeling, it has tons of specific suggestions and activities for kids and their parents. It’s fun, to the point, encouraging, and hopeful. A real gem.”
Rick Hanson, PhD, author of Resilient

“Debra Burdick has done it again! She has written a very informative, easy-to-digest book to help children, parents, and helping professionals use mindfulness strategies to navigate through common life issues facing children with attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Since children with ADHD have trouble paying attention, the focus on present-centered mindfulness skills is very intuitive and effective. Her easy-to-follow structure, using ‘For You to Know,’ a case example, and ‘For You to Do’ for each tip makes each activity very clear and engaging. A great resource for parents and children alike!”
Judith Belmont, MS, LPC, author of the Tips and Tools for the Therapeutic Toolbox series

Mindfulness for Kids with ADHD goes beyond the title. In fact, the skills in this book can be used by any age, including young children and their parents, teachers, and helping professionals. The mindfulness activities are perfect for parents to do with their kids, and also for teachers to integrate into their classrooms. The information is easy to unpack, expand, and apply to meet the needs of different children in real-life situations. The timing of this book is perfect with all the challenges in our world today to help our kids adopt mindfulness and self-awareness as a way of life.”
Nancy Hayes, MS, educator, special education coordinator, and elementary school principal

“Debra Burdick has crafted the perfect resource for children with ADHD. This book is filled with fantastic, age-appropriate activities that can help children maximize the power of mindfulness to control their symptoms of ADHD. Parents may find themselves using the book themselves as the exercises are useful to us all. Outstanding in every respect!”
Ellen B. Braaten, PhD, director of the MGH Learning and Emotional Assessment Program (LEAP), codirector of the The Clay Center for Young Healthy Minds, associate professor at Harvard Medical School, and coauthor of Bright Kids Who Can’t Keep Up and Straight Talk About Psychological Testing for Kids

“I know lots of kids who moan and groan when they hear that it is time to practice mindfulness exercises. But these kids have yet to experience Debra Burdick’s book for children with ADHD. Debra has a keen awareness of what it takes to help children with ADHD, combining a unique blend of helpful therapeutic techniques and good old fun. Thoughtful and well written, this book is sure to be a hit with ADHD kids, their parents, and teachers.”
Lawrence E. Shapiro, PhD, author of How to Raise a Child with a High EQ and The Secret Language of Children
