A Story to Explain ADHD and Tic Disorders/Tourette Syndrome
Regular price £10.99
Regular price Sale price £10.99
Meet Jamie, a young boy with ADHD and a tic disorder called Tourette Syndrome. He's not being fidgety or naughty - he really can't help it! Jamie explains how he was diagnosed and what having tics and ADHD is like for him. He also shares how he has learnt to relieve his ADHD symptoms, minimise his tics, and how friends and adults can help at home and school.

This illustrated book comes in two parts - one with interactive activities and heaps of useful information about having both ADHD and tics. Jamie explains how it can be really tricky to tell whether your fidgeting comes from having ADHD, tics, or both! The second part tells the story of how Jamie's Grandfather encouraged him to learn more about his tics. Jamie and his friends who attend the after-school tic club learn about each other by sharing their experiences of ADHD and tics at home and at school.

This book is ideal for children aged 7+ as well as friends, teachers and professionals working with children with ADHD and tic disorders, and a great starting point for family and classroom discussions too!

Press Reviews

  • Soli Lazarus, ADHD consultant and author of ADHD Is Our Superpower

    ADHD, Tics & Me! is a must-get book for children, parents and teachers. It follows the story of Jamie who clearly explains how tics affect his day-to-day life. The book is written in language that children can relate to. It encourages young people to think about their own lives and experiences and offers suggestions how adults can help.
  • Professor Uttom Chowdhury, University of Bedfordshire

    ADHD, Tics & Me! is a very accessible book that will appeal to young children who have been recently diagnosed with ADHD or Tourette Syndrome. The authors have done well by normalizing some of the subtleties of the conditions. I particularly like the fact that there is a focus on personality, interests, and hobbies which empowers the reader to see that they are much more than a label for medical symptoms. The book will help with improving knowledge but more importantly help with self-esteem issues which is often neglected in books on the subject.
