From the author of the highly successful Maybe You Know My Kid comes a desperately needed follow-up–the first comprehensive guide for dealing with the unique challenges of raising an adolescent with ADHD. Adolescence is a tumultuous turning point for everyone, but for teens with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, it can be especially challenging, and for some of their parents, downright terrifying. Predictably, stress ensues over inconsistent or poor school performance and over inevitable decisions regarding higher education and life after high school. Adolescents with ADHD get more traffic tickets, have higher school-expulsion and drop-out rates, and are more likely to experiment with alcohol and drugs. Maybe You Know My Teen brims with management strategies for parents new to ADHD as well as those who have coped with it throughout their child’s life. Explaining the roots of the disorder clearly and extensively, while discussing situations most likely to cause symptoms to manifest themselves, ADHD authority Mary Fowler presents step-by-step advice, along with in-depth personal stories and first-person advice from leading experts in the field. This is the one-of-a-kind lifesaver thousands have been awaiting.

So much depends on how you look at things: Are you a glass-half-empty person, or do you discover advantages where other people find only weaknesses? When it comes to raising healthy, happy kids, positive encouragement and support can work miracles where attempts to change and control create frustration and resentment. In her first book, The Gift of ADHD, psychologist Lara Honos-Webb offers a positive, strengths-affirming new way to look at kids who present behaviors associated with attention-deficit / hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Instead of struggling to “tame” your easily distracted child, she shows you how to appreciate your child’s creativity, sensitivity, and passion for living. In this book, she develops the ideas from The Gift of ADHD into 101 simple and engaging activities you can use to develop your child’s unique strengths. The chapters of the book explore ways you can shift your thinking about different aspects of ADHD. Each starts with a short discussion of how a particular challenge can be reconceived as a strength. After that, the book dives into fun and positive activities you and your child can do together—often in just a few minutes—to help develop and reinforce the gifts of ADHD.

In "The ADHD Fix," father and son authors Dr. Henry and Joshua Svec discuss their professional and personal experience with ADHD, addressing myths and testifying to the underlying potential in every diagnosis. Dr. Henry Svec has spent the past twenty years helping children and adults with ADHD achieve success by developing tools and strategies to overcome associated obstacles. The victories of his son Joshua vouch for the effectiveness of the strategies disclosed in this book, which includes a chapter dedicated to Joshua's experiences growing up with ADHD. ADHD is a bit like the Niagara River: often out of control, unpredictable, and has a lot of energy. It's not until you see the hydro electric dam that you realize the gifts of that river. The same can be said of ADHD; it's not until you break down the brick wall of trials and tribulations, that you discover that ADHD comes with its own unique gifts and doesn't have to be an impediment to success. With the right strategies, ADHD can be a pillar of strength and a fount of otherwise unknown abilities.

NON MEDICATED INTERVENTIONS FOR LEARNERS WITH ADHD

This booklet describes techniques classroom teachers can use to do three things to ameliorate behavior for children with ADHD: 1) revise the environment to set the student up for success, 2) replace the behavior, by teaching an alternative behavior that is socially acceptable, and 3) reframing the response, so the behavior is not fed by the behavior of the adult. We call this the Three R's which are based on the Three T's. The three T's are 1) Trigger (what sets the behavior in motion, 2) Target (what behavior are you wanting to target for change in measurable and observable terms, and 3) impacT (what is the student trying to gain or escape by having this behavior?) So the three T's (Trigger, Target, impacT) form the basis for the three R's (Revise, Replace, Reframe). It's simple and Dr. Riffel's presentation that coincides with this book is color coded to help you remember which of the sections you are addressing with each intervention.

You've had them in your class. Their behavior has troubled you. Their lack of academic focus has frustrated you. And the problem of what to do about them has stretched your every professional nerve to its breaking point. So imagine what school is like for them.

In America, as many as 25 million people are diagnosed with ADHD; chances are you're teaching at least one of them. If so, don't lose patience. Pick up The Kids Behind the Label and read the thoughts of the students often branded as problem children. You'll soon discover that they want a meaningful educational experience, and that, by listening to them, you can provide it.
