This book is a common sense guide to helping children with ADD/ADHD... The chapters or 'time and transitions' and 'ADD/ADHD questions' are particularly pertinent and many parents will find these useful. For the professional working in the field it is felt to be a good summary of many of the strategies usually discussed with parents and schools.
For parents tired of their ADD/ADHD children's forgetfulness, lost homework, messy bedrooms, and tantrums over chores, there's help in this easy-to-read yet long-lasting guide... Parents will not only appreciate Carter's informative strategies, all told in a conversational tone, but the myriad resources that wrap up this must-have guide. A Helpful Tips section, broken down by such catagories as chores, home life, and leisure time, will benefit any child, not only those with ADD and ADHD. Other resources comprise a list of equipment (e.g., an electronic dictionary and analog visual timer) beneficial to special needs children, a list of realistic chores for different age spans, multiple checklists (e.g., morning routine and night before school), and chart and planner templates. Together, these resources give parents the tools they need to help their ADD/ADHD children become more productive and independent.
