4-0 out of 5 stars Very good book for teachers - one thing missing
This is an excellent book for teachers. I saw it about six years ago, the first time in a grade school classroom in Paterson, NJ. It is a book that can help teachers to help children who demonstrate ADHD symtoms be successful in school. So, it is a recommended book.

One thing that I would say is missing in this book is, it does currently subscribe to the medical model, that is, itis a pro-medication book. It really doesn't delve into the controversy of medication at all, but accepts the standard model for treatment. In that respect, I feel, the book falls short.

For the reader interested in another view of this from psychologists and educators, please note the following books. These should supplement Sandra Rief's good work.

Overcoming ADHD Without Medication: A Parent and Educator's Guidebook

The ADD & ADHD Answer Book: Professional Answers to 275 of the Top Questions Parents Ask

Rethinking ADHD: Integrated Approaches to Helping Children at Home and at School

These three, Susan Ashley's book is more for parents, Rethinking ADHD helps to lay an excellent theory for understanding childhood mental health issues, specifically ADHD, and Overcoming ADHD Without Medication is helpful for parents and for teachers.

This is the Kindle version:
Overcoming ADHD Without Medication: A Parent and Educator's Guidebook

These, along with Sandra Rief's guidelines in teaching children with ADHD can be of much value for teachers and for parents who want to be more educated on this subject.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Must for Every New Teacher
This year 25% of my students are ADHD-Inattentive or ADHD- Hyperactive/Impulsive Type. It seems to me that the number of students I have with this disease is increasing every year. Being an early childhood elementary teacher, so many parents are refusing to medicate their children and would rather have them earn C's, D's, and F's than treat them. Then the parents wonder why they struggle with 2nd and 3rd grade in reading and content area. Most of them are in Tier II RTI.

I purchased this book in order to help me in the classroom and document thoroughly their symptoms, behavior, and compliance. This is a great book! It has given me some good ideas to help my students learn to monitor their behavior. The bottom line is students' learning.

5-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic resource for educators
How to Reach and Teach Children with ADD/ADHD is a truly fantastic resource for educators trying to best serve children with ADHD.Rief begins the book by demystifying ADHD, writing a succinct summary of ADHD and how it manifests in academic domains.She moves on to sharing suggestions on how to best manage ADHD in different tasks like math, reading, and writing. Her suggestions are research-based and easy to implement.I found her writing easy to read, and I really liked how she interspersed bullet points into the text to clearly and quickly move through a lot of material.I shared this resource with some classmates in my special education master's program, and three ended up ordering their own copies.Teachers, if you purchase any book about ADHD, make sure it is this one.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent applicable strategies
This is an excellent book.It provides a clear explaination of ADD/ADHD. As well as pratical learning and studying techniques for students with ADD/ADHD to succeed.I highly recommend this book.

5-0 out of 5 stars ADD ADHD
I am pleased with this book.I am a grand mother of a 7 year old child with ADHD and I am learning a lot about this condition.Delivery of this book was as expected.

5-0 out of 5 stars What a Great Book

The ADD & ADHD Answer book is great source to use on a daily basis, when problems arise.It makes it alot easier for me as a parent to decide what to do, when I read this book.Easy and format is good,

5-0 out of 5 stars Q&A format is fantastic for easy-to-find, easy-to-read information
Bought this while browsing the ADHD section at a bookstore, shortly after my 5yo son was diagnosed (just couldn't wait for a copy to arrive from Amazon!) Finished reading it cover-to-cover within the week.I love the Q&A format - if you don't have time to read an entire chapter as in a "traditional" book, you can look at the table of contents or index and simply flip to the issue at hand to read one or two questions & answers. The first page of each chapter lists each question that will be answered - hopefully a future edition will also include the page numbers here, but not that difficult to flip through to find. The Q&A format will also make it easy to return to a topic at a later point and briefly re-read the pertinent information. The tone of the writing is that oftalking to a trusted friend, rather than reading sleep-inducing textbook-level information. Dr. Ashley has really hit one out of the ballpark with this book!

The biggest benefit for me in reading this book was that it gave me such a positive outlook on helping my son... I now realize that so many of my son's frustrating behaviors stem from his inability to control his impulses. A chapter on possible co-existing disorders opened my eyes to topics/behaviors that I never would have thought to bring up to his therapist or psychiatrist.Suggestions and tips on success at school and at home have helped immensely as well. The chapter on medication helped me understand how various meds work and their benefits and considerations.

While reading, I flagged certain questions/answers and even entire chapters and asked my son's Kindergarten teacher if she would be willing to read what I had marked... she did!We both feel like it has answered so many of our questions about my son's behaviors, and I think we are both more flexible and understanding as a result.I'll be re-reading it soon with the intent of marking pages for my dear hubby, who would never read it cover-to-cover!

Finally, the last appendix points the reader to additional Recommended Reading that may be helpful, including books and websites. The sources include a brief description and are organized by the chapter headings of the book, making it very easy to find additional information on a particular topic. I have starred several books to locate through the library or to purchase.

Chapters include:
1 - The ABCs of ADD and ADHD
2 - Getting Your Child Evaluated
3 - Coexisting Disorders
4 - Succeeding in School
5 - Homework
6 - Parenting: Rules, Routines, and Rewards
7 - Medication
8 - Social Skills
9 - Self-Esteem
10 - Growing Up with AD/HD

Also includes appendices:
A - The 5 Most Important Lists You Need
B - Section 504 Accommodations and Modifications
C - Behavior Charts
D - Educational Tests
E - Recommended Reading

I cannot say enough good things about this book... if you are looking for an easy-to-read introduction of the topics related to raising a child diagnosed with ADD or ADHD, do not hesitate to purchase this book.You won't regret it.

5-0 out of 5 stars OMG!Get this Book!
OMG!What a great book!Easy to read. Quick to read.Easy to understand.Helpful tips on what to do to solve various problems.You can't go wrong with this book.I also like Dr. Ashley' other book The Asperger's Answer Book.

4-0 out of 5 stars One of the better, or best ADHD books for parents and educators.
Susan Ashley's book on ADHD is one of the most informative books on the subject. It can help parents, as well as professionals and educators. Dr. Ashley is a psychologist with many years of experience with children. The book is well researched and well thought out. She does not push or even recommend medication, rather, encourages therapy, good parenting, and educational remediation.

Product Description
Attention Deficit Disorder and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADD/ADHD) are among the most misunderstood problems facing young children today. Drugs like Ritalin and Cylert are traditionally prescribed to treat these disorders, but their use is controversial. While many children have been helped by these medications, at best, pills only temporarily improve symptoms. Some­times they don't work at all, and they can come with disturbing side effects such as weight loss, insomnia, and may even slow growth in younger children. ADD/ADHD Drug Free gives frustrated parents a long-awaited natural alternative. The first book to feature enjoyable, practical activities for children that will help them cope with their disorder by strengthening brain functioning, this life-changing guide shows parents, teachers, and counselors how they can improve learning and behavior effectively and without medication. Timely and thoroughly researched, this guide will help thousands of children become more focused and more successful in school and in life, without jeopardizing their health. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars great resource
full of activities, easy to understand and a helpful tool for anyone trying to help those with difficulty concentrating or staying on task - a must have!!!!!!!!!!!!!

4-0 out of 5 stars Learned alot
Loved the information. It has helped alot and we were able to make small changes so they became the new normal so our son did not even realize we were changing our food choices.

5-0 out of 5 stars A useful book
It's a useful book, have a grate resume about ADD/ADHD acording to parents and teachers, but, in my opinion, the exersices are more to 5 or 6 years old and forgot 7 to 10 (or more) years old children, but if you understand the basic idea you can improve those exercises.

5-0 out of 5 stars Learn How to Cope
The authors aren't totally against drugs to help with ADD/ADHD. They point out that some children respond well, some don't, and some can't tolerate the side effects. But whether you choose to go with the drugs or not, this is a useful book. The authors lay out the signs and symptoms of ADD and use their experience and knowledge to ferret out ways to help children and parents. Practical exercises can help children develop their minds and manage their symptoms. Brain function can be strengthened.
The first part of the book is devoted to case histories and information about ADD and the second part contains a survey to help gauge the seven strengths survey. Caregivers can then choose from a variety of exercises developed to strengthen areas where the child is weak. A must read to help children at risk become successful.

5-0 out of 5 stars Balanced resource
This is a very balanced approach to ADHD treatment.Although the title of the book would lead one to believe there is no place for prescription drugs in the treatment of ADHD, this book clearly shows when and also when not to use medicine.The book helps parents of young children not to panic that their active preschooler is hyperactive, but helps the parent to learn about the developing brain and tips to help their preschooler avoid the ADHD label at some later point in his life.The discussion of learning styles is wonderful andespecially useful to every parent andteacher. Educating children from the starting point of their learning strengths is beneficial to everyone. The book has a short list of lifestyle modifications to help the child, but this is not the sole focus of the book. The list, though, is worthwhile and should be tried before entering the dangers of medicating a child (or adult).The book clearly states the cold hard fact, that medication alone without behavior modification/ therapy will be unsuccessful in the long run of helping a child/ adult with ADHD. Although I was expecting the book to advocate never using medication, it clearly does not say that, but the book shows that medication alone will never suffice.The book also helps one to see where medication needs to be used in order to make any progress in therapeutic exercises. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars My granddaughter loves it!
My 13 year old Granddaughter has suffered with ADHD and it's comlications all of her life.She loves this book that helps her understand others are going through it too and gives her hints on organizing herself and getting things done.It has made a difference in her life!

4-0 out of 5 stars strikes the perfect tone -- with one caveat
I think the layout and approach of this book is excellent.
The use of vignettes and the input from ADHD youths is well implemented.
Very useful material is presented, and presented accessibly.
Excellent overall.

... BUT ...

The authors' caveat regarding medication is watered down.And it belongs IN FRONT OF the advice given.

Pharmaceuticals are controlled for many reasons.The book should make it abundantly clear that medicines are serious business, and should only be considered after adequate consideration and in consultation with AND ONGOING SUPERVISION BY medical professionals.

I'm not anti-medication.But I do think that this book is a little too glib on the seriousness of medication.

5-0 out of 5 stars best ADD book for teens and parents of ADD teens
I have read many books on ADD (I have it, both kids have it).This is by far the best book for teens to read to understand their ADD and how it affects their lives.PArents should read, too.Helps to understand what kids are going thru.Started out as library book, and then bought this copy.Make sure you give your teen a pack of post-it notes as they read thru to mark passages.Recommended to teens, parents and any psychologist who claims to understand ADD.

5-0 out of 5 stars For Tweens and Teens with ADHD
This is an upbeat and hopeful book written for tweens and teens, but a good read for parents of kids with ADHD as well.The children in this book are high achievers or talented in some way, so they make good role models.Lots of hard science written in an interesting and age appropriate way.Also lots of tips for coping with situations that can be challenging for kids with ADHD.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great book for teens & young adults
This book is easy to read, in down-to-earth language, and Question & Answer format.Presents ideas from a teenager's 1st person perspective.Covers a variety of relevant topics.Besides helping parents and teachers, I think high schoolers, college kids, and maybe junior high kids will find this book to be useful. ...

Very good informational book to comprehend & teach students with ADHD.Although, I just started this book,I am very satisfied as to how the author explains ADHD.I think that is because she talks from a professional and a personal point of view; she has two sons with the condition.I wish, I could get this book in spanish!

5-0 out of 5 stars The book every parent and doctor should read!
I can't say enough about this book.As a nurse, it has all of the medical information I am looking for and as a parent (son with ADD) it is very informative and easy to read.This is a book that can be utilized from cover to cover or to look up specific topics.It does an amazing job of explaining how every child with ADD or ADHD is an individual and discusses all of the factors that may be influencing the severity of our child's problems.Best of all, this book does a very good job of listing many treatment alternatives, the studies and results done on each treatment, and in what setting the treatment is appropriate.Medications are discussed but by no means are they the first "go to" treatment mentioned.At the back of the book are tools for parents, teachers and medical personnel to use as you navigate the best options to help your child.After reading this book, I have been able to work with my son's teachers and implement simple things in the classroom so that he can be successful and proud of himself!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Resource
This book is excellent for parents, teachers and administrators.There are wonderful ideas to help in the classroom and at home.I would strongly recommend this book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Superb, practical behavior manual for parents and practitioners
This is one of the best manuals for my practice with kids with ADHD that I have found.I use this daily and have found immeasureable help in parenting suggestions for parents who are struggling.I am really impressed with this!

4-0 out of 5 stars Through and comprehensive
There's certainly no dearth of information or misinformation on ADHD available to the public.However, compiling a comprehensive knowledge base for the newly initiated is a challenge.I came across this book after reading nearly everything the public library had to offer on ADHD.In this book Dr. Flick succinctly puts together an excellent resource on all the evidence-based information on ADHD.He also includes sections on "alternative" treatments that will appeal to some but is careful to indicate where science meets the marketting.

If you're new to ADHD this tome may be a little intimidating.The writing is here is a bit more dry than some other good sources on the subject like Barkley, Rosenthal, Phelan or Hallowell.Also as with all books on ADHD published before 2000-2002 some of the details on medication are out of date.The only serious omission is an explicit section on choosing good professionals to help you manage ADHD.But if you read and assimilate all the information in this book you should become a good judge of whether or not every member of your treatment team is functioning well.

If you are only buying one book on ADHD to keep on your shelf at home this is it.

2-0 out of 5 stars ADD parent not satisfied!
I purchased this *kit* based on the fact it had ideas, activities ... etc.Maybe me having ADD I missed some info on it?When I got it I was surprised to find it was a book!Not a *kit* at all.So I will probably never use it ... unless I was to purchase a copier machine and print off items as needed.

An invaluable resource for couples in which one of the partners suffers from Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), this authoritative book guides troubled marriages towards an understanding and appreciation for the struggles and triumphs of a relationship affected by it, and to look at the disorder in a more positive and less disruptive way. Going beyond traditional marriage counseling which can often discount the influence of ADHD, this discussion offers advice from the author's personal experience and years of research and identifies patterns of behavior that can hurt marriages —such as nagging, intimacy problems, sudden anger, and memory issues —through the use of vignettes and descriptions of actual couples and their ADHD struggles and solutions. This resource encourages both spouses to become active partners in improving their relationship and healing the fissures that ADHD can cause. Also included are worksheets and various methods for difficult conversations so that couples can find a technique that fits their unique relationship and improve their communication skills. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Well worth it
Very good read and easy too.Book came in excellent condition and has great ideas.

5-0 out of 5 stars Immense relief that we didn't need to try harder, just needed to try differently!
This book, and Melissa's website were an immediate relief to the daily struggles our marriage was experiencing.We put in place some of the exercises mentioned in the book and it has been amazing.I stopped nagging, my spouse found a way to follow through on projects long unfinished.It's been less than a month since we read the book and we feel it's been the best few weeks of our 15 year marriage.

5-0 out of 5 stars Hopefull again
Finding this book at this time has truly been a gift. My partner has just been diagnosed with ADHD and Melissa's book has helped in so many ways I can't even begin to count.I has helped me so much as I was at my wits end and really feeling hopeless and contemplating leaving.Now I know that there is a reason for my partners actions and we are aware and now are addressing them and I am looking at ways that I can do things that will help me cope differently that will help ease the pain, dissapointment and resentment.There are no words to express how valuable this book is and how much it has changed by life.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very Worthwhile
Not quite finished yet, but I highly recommend this book to any couples who have or suspect they might have ADHD affecting the relationship. This book is a must for you. So much of what I read was spot on scary. But after scary, there is hope because she gives several ideas on how to best handle your relationship with an ADHD spouse.
Read it and weep, and laugh.

5-0 out of 5 stars This book will save your troubled ADHD relationship!
I bought "The ADHD Effect on Marriage" because my ADHD daughter is about to be married.I didn't have to read much of the book to realize that my children's dad is also ADHD. The problems in my marriage and subsequent divorce wreaked havoc in my life and the lives of my ex-husband and children, who continue to be impacted today in their adult lives.Melissa Orlov has written a very knowledgeable, honest, practical, compassionate, and positive book in which neither the ADHD partner nor the non-ADHD partner is considered flawed or wrong.Her empathetic approach encourages the couple to hear and be heard in a manner that enables them to reconnect and work out their problems together.She also offers specific ideas and techniques for doing so.Furthermore, reading her book is like sitting aroung the kitchen table, talking with a friend. Ms. Orlov not only knows her subject inside and out, but has lived it and successfully turned her own marriage around.If we had read this book thirty years ago, four lives would have evolved quite differently.I am passing the book to my children so that we can make the most of the present and future even though we can't change the past. ...

Product Description
(2006 ForeWord Magazine Book of the Year Award, Bronze Finalist in Parenting category). The newly updated and expanded guide to raising a teenager with an attention deficit disorder is more comprehensive than ever. Thousands more parents can rely on Dendy's compassionately presented expertise based on the latest research and decades of her experience as a parent, teacher, school psychologist, and mental health counselor. Her book looks at key areas that make adolescence--an already challenging time of life--potentially more difficult for kids with ADD or ADHD: academics, dating, driving, socializing, and greater independence.

TEENAGERS WITH ADD AND ADHD gives parents insight on everything from understanding the diagnosis to treatment options, and from behavioral and academic issues, to parent involvement and self-advocacy. The new edition includes additional or updated information in several areas. A separate chapter on medications provides details on specific drugs, including many new ones, and what research shows about their effectiveness in improving attention, impulse control, and distractibility. Dendy discusses new findings about the role of executive function problems and how they relate to teenagers difficulties with organizational skills, long-range planning, and staying on task. She advises parents on their role in working with schools to find strategies for academic success. Teenagers also speak out about their condition, and Dendy points to ways to involve them in their own treatment plan. In addition, the book covers coexisting disorders such as learning disabilities, depression, anxiety, Tourette syndrome, and Asperger syndrome.

Since 1995, this nuts and bolts guide has given parents hope and empowerment. It's chockfull of the latest data and proven strategies that can help manage the symptoms of ADD and ADHD at home and school. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars OMG! This book is FABULOUS!
As the mother of a teenager with ADD, this book was a real eye-opener. After years of seeing many behaviors in my adolescent/teenager that I thought seemed a bit odd, I read this book and realized that these behaviors added up to ADD. Did you know that a teenager with ADD often struggles with falling asleep and getting up in the morning? I'm not talking about the normal "night owl" thing - I'm talking about staying up until 4:30 AM on a school night - and not because s/he is doing homework!!! Heavenly days - no homework!! Did you know that a teenager with ADD can be very creative and think thru multiple details of something they are really interested in? - Have you ever tried to have your teenager dictate a research paper to you - and you do the typing? You can unleash their abilities in many different ways! I do agree that often times medication is necessary (it is with my teenager). This book will help parents understand the symptoms, common behaviors, along with helpful solutions to really help your teenager with ADD/ADHD reach their full potential! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this book!

5-0 out of 5 stars Teenagers with ADD and ADHD
I have read sooooo many books about ADD/ADHD and when I came across this book at my library I sat down and started reading.Couldn't put it down so took it home, started taking notes and found myself wanting to highlight and sticky note so many places.So I returned the rental to the library and bought my own.I have share the information with other parents and they are just as relieved as I was when I found this book.It is so easy to use and to understand. The writers totally got the fact that if a parent is reading this book that they are already overwhelmed and need to be able to read a book that calms them first and gives them a hug and says "Hey, I've been there and I made it, my child is happy,successful and I still have my hair."It's a MUST HAVE!!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Teenager with ADD and ADHD
This is a very helpful book for teachers, counselors, doctors, and parents. Even my teenager was very surprised how many times it was exactly her way of thinking and what she did. It helps to understand why ADD and ADHD teens do things. When punishment is useless, a lot of times understanding goes a very far way and makes a big difference. Very recommendable.

5-0 out of 5 stars The best I've read on the subject!
My shelves are chock full of books on ADHD and how to manage children with the condition.Focusing on the teenager put a different spin on what we experience.As parents, we know how chaotic teen years can be for everyone!This book was by far the most complete compendium of information I've seen.Helpful insights on how to keep a positive outlook on the future, viewing your teen with compassions and understanding as we confront the many challenges this condition demands for both the teen and the parents. Very helpful explanations of meds and their potential side-effects.I actually bought a copy as a Christmas gift for a friend of mine who has a son with ADHD. Truly a super resource, which I refer to often.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Must- Read for parents
I have read many articles and books for AD/HD and this by far has been the most useful. It describes not just the usual symptoms but other problems/situations that one might have thought unrelated.

Excellent condition.Received item promptly.

5-0 out of 5 stars I wish I had this book 5 years ago!
This easy to read book helped us find a little peace in our lives. We implemented many things from this book with our ADHD son. We have been doing this diet for about three months now. I have never recommended any other ADHD book. This is the first. I am amazed at the difference. These were easy things to implement. The nice thing about this book is you can try one thing at a time or a lot. It is not overwhelming. Some things this book helped my son with are; he's much less hyperactive, sleeps better, eats better, less moody and fewer meltdowns. The stress level in our family is way down. Thank you Laura! My son enjoys the recipes in the book as well. Check out her website too!

3-0 out of 5 stars Good Resource
This a good resource for people who are choosing not to use medication to help manage AD/HD. The book give a basic idea of what AD/HD is. It offers suggestions for natural ways to help with AD/HD such as changes in diet, toxin removal, biofeedback. etc. The suggestions in the book may also pertain to ADDults.

Laura Stevens provides a much needed road map for parents seeking help for their children with ADHD.By providing step-by-step instructions, sound nutritional knowledge, excellent examples, problem-specific narratives, and good, common sense day-to-day practices (i.e.-recipes), she is eliminating the frustration in the search for answers for current and future parents of children with ADHD.This book provides the type of aid that only could have been given by someone who has had first hand experience in raising children with ADHD.Parents can now learn what to do directly from the book rather than waiting while much of the medical community is playing catch-up to scientific literature.

5-0 out of 5 stars 12 Effective Ways to Help Your ADD/ADHD Child
This book is superb in every respect.It's comprehensive, yet concise, well organized and reader-friendly.It contains information which parents cannot find elsewhere.

Stevens is a mother and highly educated professional who is now carrying out research at Purdue University on the critically important role of essential fatty acids on children with ADHD.

In this book she gives parents and professionals a step-by-step approach for helping children.In my opinion, this book will be a bestselling book for parents in the first decade of the 21st Century.

There were things in this book that had never crossed our minds.A great book to have in your collection and easy to understand.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very Helpful
As the wife of a husband with ADHD and mother of a son with ADHD, I have struggled for years like many other reviewers to do what is right for "my boys". Sandra Reif offers some very encouraging and helpful strategies in this books. I think the key point that all books on ADHD need to make is that each person with ADHD is an individual with unique talents and gifts, and we need to view these in a positive light. Anyone who has struggled with this needs to read a book called GIFTED by Kirk Martin. It's actually a novel about a young man with ADD who comes to understand that the "disorder" parents and teachers had considered negative all his life actually turns out to be a gift. I think you can read a summary at kirkmartinbooks.com, it presents an entirely new way to view the ones you love.

5-0 out of 5 stars Thorough strategies for teaching ADHD children
I bought this book after I heard Sandra speak at an ADHD convention... A very thorough book on how to teach ADHD children. If you are going to buy just one book that says it all this is it...

5-0 out of 5 stars GREAT Reference for School, or Real Life
This book made me wish that ALL reference books were written this clearly. Whether your looking to use this book to do a presentation in school, a teacher looking for help on teaching ADHD students, or have an ADHD child of your own, this is for you. It's a no non sense, straight forward guide to ADHD. It includes the causes, symptoms, treatment suggestions, and more. It even goes into specific strategies that teachers can use in the classroom.

The best part about it is that its broken down into detailed chapters and sections, making it easy for yout to find EXACTLY what your looking for. It's also written in VERY understandable terms. This is not a medical book, it's a for the average person. This book is an unbeleiveably well written guide to one of the most common learning disabilities of today. If your looking for a great reference, look no further, you've found the best.

4-0 out of 5 stars Quite Theoretically Sound
This 'manual' presents a technical and philosophical overview of the complex array of variables that factor into effective teaching of the ADHD child.The author has compassion as well as insight into the children, who often face rejection and failure. The co-occuring low self esteem can carry over a lifetime.A variety of methodologies specific to learning domains are very helpful for diagnostic purposes and lesson planning.As a principal and mental health administrator, I have this book well-placed on my shelf. I refer to it often and occasionally lend it to my staff who are searching for help with a specific child.

Glancing back at the chapters as I prepared this review, I was actually astounded at the sophisticated details embedded there. In particular I think the information that supports the "multi-sensory" approach is greatly needed. The amount of times we write "multi-sensory" activities just because it fits in an IEP is amazing. My own experience with teachers is that they basically have a very limited understanding of the neurological underpinings of sensory and perceptual limitations.

My only reservation about the book is that despite its layout, it actually is fairly theoretical. I think that when a teacher reaches for it, he or she may be looking for some more 'lesson planning' ideas and tend to gloss over the more comprehensive information. I definitely recommend the book for special education teachers who are genuinely interested in a more in-depth review, as well asfor purposes of diagnostic and prescriptive planning. I also recommend it for administrators who are involved in staff development or individual supervision.
The only other concern I have is that despite the amount of information about the medication questions, it does not include enough about the tomes of research that is available to support augmenting behavioral programs with psychopharmacology. A teacher should check with his or her supervisor to gain access to this data so that they can respond to questions on this highly charged subject with sophisticated and thus helpful answers. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars great book
I have a 5 year old son who was just diagnosed with ADHD. We bought several books on the subject but I thought this was the best. It is straightforward, easy to read, well organized and full of manyuseful facts. It has really helped us understand the disease better. We have been able to make some positive changes both at school and home. I would definitely recommend this book.

4-0 out of 5 stars Very easy to find your area of interest
The checklist format of the book (really more like bullet points) makes it easy to locate and absorb the information you are looking for.Once you've read the book, the format is great for future look-ups.

Right off the bat, the book jumps into the nebulous nature of ADD/ADHD.These particular symptoms may be correlated with ADD/ADHD... or it may just be within the spectrum of normal kid behavior.ADD/ADHD is a multifaceted neurological problem, so while parents, teachers, guidance counselors, and daycare workers may suspect a child has the condition, only really good medical testing, psychological testing, coordination with the school, and family counseling can accurately diagnose the condition.Having that spelled out early in the book is welcome information.(Section 1, List 11)

You get a little freaked out reading this book... because *every* kid is like this.They are, by nature, childish.Impulsive, inappropriate, wiggly... poor concentration, inconsistent, daydreaming.And we grown-ups get this under control, but in times of stress, you see all the same childish behaviors coming out of adults, too.So when a parent is frustrated by their children's "childishness," it is appropriate to remember that they are only children.

This book assumes that you have (or are working toward) a diagnosis of ADD/ADHD and lists all kinds of information, categorically.Information for parents, for teachers, and for ideas to try.It's good information for any parent because... well, children are childish.

I'm not a teacher (apart from Sunday school), but there was good information in there for parents.I thought the most helpful sections were on positive incentives and reinforcers for home (Section 2, list 25), Giving Directions -- Tips for Parents (Section 2, list 28), and Getting Student's Attention (Section 3, list 40).Any parent can benefit from adding more structure to the home, creating a sense of excitement, and being positive and encouraging.

The book was written in 1998.I would be interested in learning what developments have taken place in the past decade, for example, with rates of diagnosis and academic outcomes for children diagnosed in the 80s and 90s.

2-0 out of 5 stars Unrealistic for a family in Rural America -- Organic farmers with two boys ages 10 and 12
Dr Jay's book may be great for the movie stars & elite who have an unlimited amount of cash and assistance to follow this menu plan and his other recommendations but it is unrealistic for the rest of us.

First of all, the menu plan is disorganized and hard to follow.He gives a menu but fails to list the recipes or what pages they are located on.It would be helpful if he listed them in an easily accessible area with an Index as in other recipe books.Also, it would be helpful if his shopping menu would list quantities!!!Secondly, his recommendation for replacing milk, dairy and meat with soy is not correct.Anyone who has read "The Whole Soy Story" knows that the Chinese who have been experimenting with soy for over 1,000 years do not eat any soy that has not been fermented first!! Soy is bad for the digestive system and causes cancer.

Thirdly, his recommendation to go out and get some exercise does not work when you live out in the middle of nowhere which is where most of the working poor live and cannot afford to indulge themselves in extracurricular activities.Also, when you have one child that is ADHD and the other is autistic and they are fighting he recommends to separate them.Well what do you do when you don't have 2 adults to do that???What do you do when your child hits you Dr. Jay?Oh yes, I'm sure his solution is to send them to jail so they can get abused there!Oh yes, and the slave class that's what we are calling ourselves have so much time to spend 4-5 days a week to take our children on hikes, etc. in between the extensive food prep and cleanup never mind milking the dairy goats or feeding the chickens!

What is even more disgusting is that the same people who created this disease and unleashed it on our children are the same despicable people coming out and tooting their horn about the so-called cure (READ HITLER'S MEIN KAMPF!!)Gordon -- [...]

Do yourself a favor, get the book Nourishing Traditions, raise your own food and stop feeding any kind of sugar.This book has some good ideas but is definitely not a cure.After three weeks of trying this program AND NO CURE we are moving on to something else.

3-0 out of 5 stars A bit disappointed.
The main idea of the book is to eliminate sugar, dairy, and artificial ingredients from your child's diet.From what I've learned so far in my research this is a pretty common plan.This book did not provide much information on why these things can lead to ADHD behaviors in children and did not provide an extensive list of what to stay away from on food labels.Sometimes labels include items that you might think are ok but are actually another term for a dairy product or something artificial.But most of all, I was disappointed in the menu plan and recipes.They are all vegan/vegetarian and not kid friendly at all.For example, Tofu Lettuce Cups and Three-Bean Salad.I understand that it is definitely a healthy diet however I expected recipes that would be more appealing to children as this is a book about ADHD in children.There were very few recipes that I imagine my daughter would even try let alone enjoy.I understand that changes have to be made and it won't be easy but come on.Where are the recipes that are more "average" children's dishes that have been modified to fit in with the plan? I don't know, maybe I should give them a try and see what happens . . . maybe my resistance is the real problem?

5-0 out of 5 stars A MUST HAVE FOR EVERY PARENT - With or Without ADD/ADHD
Another amazing book by the brilliant Dr. Jay Gordon.I found it to be utterly fantastic.It is concise and to the point and provides excellent nutritional advice from one of the world's finest pediatricians (and IMHO, THE FINEST pediatrician).Dr. Jay specializes in pediatric nutrition and this, coupled with the fact that he has ADD/ADHD and has helped countless children with ADD/ADHD in his practice, makes him an expert in this subject.He is a prime example that it can work for ADD/ADHD sufferers.He advocates a healthy lifestyle, which should be paramount to every family - regardless of ADD/ADHD.

In the book, Dr. Jay simplifies the "how to" by providing recipes, weekly meals, even shopping lists.Every busy parent will certainly appreciate that.He discusses the importance that food plays in our ability to focus, concentrate, learn, listen, adapt, adjust, etc.There are countless studies that support his findings.Simply removing sugar in the diet will make a huge (and wonderful) change in a child with (or without) hyperactivity.Glutten is a trigger so avoiding that will help calm an otherwise overactive little one.He also stresses the importance of exercise and outlet and even lists the benefits of different forms of exercise, as well as a specific program to implement.I loved this book!

To the previous reviewer, whom I suspect did not actually read the book, I want to state that Dr. Jay does mention that some severe cases may still warrant medication; however, it should NOT be the first resort.Many (if not most) cases can be lessened and *cured* to the point that even without medication, no one would suspect that child has ADD/ADHD.I'm sure most parents would prefer to go the natural route and avoid as many side effects as possible.And certainly many have done so (including Dr. Jay himself).So if you are considering this book (and I mean no disrespect here), don't let the previous reviewer lump your child into the category of his son, who very well may have a severe case that could only be "lessened" by following the advice in this book.But it still goes without saying that even if his son wasn't *cured*, he would benefit from this healthy lifestyle.

Every child is different and deserves a chance at being as healthy as possible.It certainly can't hurt to try this - if nothing else, you will be implementing a healthier lifestyle with less disease, illness, and a longer lifespan for your child.The diet is heavily plant based, but does list where meat can be added to the recipes so it is very flexible to fit just about every family's eating style.The recipes are very tasty (we are enjoying them immensely) and are fun to make as a family.For those who eat a plant-based diet, I'd also like to recommend a wonderful book by Dr. Fuhrman called "Disease Proof Your Child".

This book also has a section on additional treatments and discusses how the mind and body are linked, how yoga/meditation/tai chi can calm a child with ADD/ADHD.He also briefly discusses herbal remedies and accupuncture.

This book, I am recommending even for those who do not have ADD/ADHD.My twins are patients of Dr. Jay and thanks to him, have been eating and exercising optimally since birth.My husband and his mother both have ADHD and one of my children may have it, but I honestly can not tell for sure because we've always been on Dr. Jay's healthy lifestyle program.When she eats healthy and follows his advice, she acts like a calm, concentrated child.So if she does have it, her symptoms are masked and she is *cured*.Now, I do notice that if we slip and she has sugar or doesn't sleep enough, her behavior changes dramatically, and this has led me to suspect she has a case which is cureable by following the advice recommended in Dr. Jay's book.(I should note that my children are homeschooled so I have not had a teacher slap the label on her.She certainly doesn't *sit still* behind a desk all day or I suspect the call would have come on a day when cookies were passed around the classroom.)Regardless, this is a lifestyle change that needs to be followed thoroughly.I will continue to follow his advice and watch my children flourish.

I'd highly recommend this book as a must read for all parents who want to follow a healthy lifestyle, as well as those who suffer from ADD/ADHD in their family.The recipes can be easily adapted to meet special needs (like rice allergies or nut allergies) and I guarantee that your family will thrive in this beautiful, healthy family lifestyle!Good luck to all of you!

1-0 out of 5 stars Misleading
There is no "cure" for ADD or ADHD. This book lends itself to the idea that natural remedies are the answer, they are not. In fact, most of these so-called remedies don't work as well as prescription medication. My son is almost 18 and has lived with ADHD and Asperger's his entire life, there is no cure, especially a "natural." We've tried many "natural remedies" and none of them even took the edge off; so, he took prescription medication for most of the past 15 years. He's learned, with help from me and school programs, to control the behaviors on his own and no longer takes prescription medications, but nothing "natural" works. Don't be misled. ... Read more

Product Description
If you have attention deficit disorder (ADD), you may act impulsively, daydream, and have trouble focusing, but clinical studies suggest that these same symptoms may make you exceptionally creative, intuitive, and energetic. In fact, many people with ADD claim to have become successful because of their ADD, not in spite of it.

In The Gift of Adult ADD, Lara Honos-Webb adapts the revolutionary approach first introduced in the parenting book The Gift of ADHD to the lives of adults with ADD. Instead of focusing on your weaknesses, this book shows you how to transform symptoms into strengths to improve your relationships, job performance, parenting skills, and overall quality of life. You'll also read inspiring stories of real people with ADD who have become successful in part because of their ability to meet the challenges of ADD and make the most of its gifts.

"Lara Honos-Webb shows us how the demands of a global and digital culture may make the signature traits of ADD--inventiveness, need for stimulation, and interpersonal intuition--in high demand."

1-0 out of 5 stars Delusional; pandering; reckless
I couldn't get through the first chapter without questioning this author's motives. The "gift" angle is an easy seller to people with ADHD, especially those who don't know what they can do about their problems.This book is a complete departure from other books by respected expert. This woman's just making all this stuff up!This s is just feel-good dreckthat doesn't move the ADDer forward; only makes them feel good about their problems.Yeech.She even discourages medication as it might medicate away your "gifts."Wow, perfect for all the anti-medication people.

Ecological conscience????? She's got to be kidding.Most ADDers are shopaholics and have terminal clutter problems. They consume consume consume and are often on the go, driving here and flying there. Wasting resources. What is ECOLOGICAL ABOUT THAT?

And 'Stay in your ADD Zone" and don't feel guilt about it? Do the things that make you feel "in the zone"includes getting divorced so you can dump your kids on your ex-spouse:

"Living in your ADD zone means finding ways to cultivate your ideas. It means not feeling guilt for what you cannot do. One woman sheeplishly reported that she enjoyed parenting more after she got divorced and had shared custody arrangments. Thgis big of mixing it up met some of her basic needcsa nd increased her enjoyment of parenting.'

This book is a giant farce and the author is lost in some lala land.She tells you to feel good about yourself, despite glaring problems.She wants you to thinkthat the differencebetween feeling guilty and feeling good about yourself is in how you view your "gifts," not in treating them.This is dishonest and self-serving but definitely her niche market.

5-0 out of 5 stars Inspiring
I think this book is amazing because it goes far beyond explaining what ADD is. It shows the reader how to focus (and capitalize) on the strengths that the condition brings with it while also minimizing the impact of the drawbacks. It's not necessarily easy to follow all the advice; but implementing the suggestions one at a time so that they become a natural habit, helps to accomplish those exact goals.

Reading this book was a breath of fresh air in a world where so many with ADD are given pills to keep their "disorder" "under control". In reality, the author takes a step back and suggests that just because people with the condition don't fit within societal norms doesn't mean that making them "normal" is necessarily in anyone's best interests. Instead of feeling powerless against the "disorder", this book helps the reader to feel empowered by the way their brain is wired by giving actionable items that turn the chores of daily life into a game or a challenge (which really appeals to the ADD mind) while given examples of people who have been great successes who attribute their success as "because of" not "in spite of" ADD.

5-0 out of 5 stars this book is a gift
This book included every seemingly ridiculous thing a person with ADD does and thinks. The Gift explains that these are truly positive, creative, intelligent ways of looking at the world and gathering information. I loved the strategies to focus, remind, and motivate myself, but most important, I learned to stop nagging at me and build upon the gifts of creativity, sensitivity and thinking outside the box. It's short and sweet and NOT boring.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Phenomenal Book by a Phenomenal Writer
I bought this book after seeing Dr. Honos-Webb speak on a different topic (parenting). She spoke with such wisdom and insight, and addressed some of the most important questions and fears regarding parenting today -- and she did it in such a simple way. I am a lifelong lover of learning and I can honestly say that I have never seen a speaker come at a topic so directly yet so intimately. It was a life-changing talk.

It made me want to hear more of Honos-Webb's take on the world - so much more that I went home and ordered all of her books (which is a lot to say for a single mother watching every dime!): Listening to Depression: How Understanding Your Pain Can Heal Your Life, The Gift Of ADHD: How To Transform Your Child's Problems Into Strengths, The Gift of ADHD Activity Book: 101 Ways to Turn Your Child's Problems into Strengths (Companion) as well as this one.

Her books are more than I had hoped for. Honos-Webb approaches depression, ADD and ADHD in a uniquely positive way. There are new insights and food for thought on every page. She is also a wonderful writer. I am a writer and an editor myself and I was continually impressed with not only the beauty of the ideas she expresses but the beauty of her words as well.

Honos-Webb sheds extraordinary light on these topics. Her books should be required reading for everyone who cares about the human mind.

PS And if you ever get a chance to see her speak, seize the opportunity. This woman should have her own TV show! (Could she be the next Oprah????? We can only hope.)

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Book - Who Want's to Live Down to Someone's Else's Definition of "Disorder"?
This is a great book. It develops a lot of the ideas I first read in "The Edison Gene". The "disorder" comment is exactly the type of judgmental negativity that books of this type helped me recognize for what they were. So what if adults with ADHD only have a few close friends! I've had large numbers of ongoing superficial relationships at various times in my life, and actually ENJOY having just a few close ones.Books like this helped me understand that its "OK" for me to relax and enjoy my true nature, instead of trying to change it. Also, the book actually does cover the "negative" aspects of ADHD, the importance of recognizing them and minimizing their disruptive impact on your life. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great introductory book for the adult ADHD-er or someone close to one
Just a warning - this is both a review of the book and how it has helped me personally.

This book is fantastic for someone who wants to better understand the disorder.It gives an overview of all of the treatment options and states which are scientifically supported and which are considered controversial.A very useful aspect to having the book has been that my girlfriend has gained a much better understanding for why I am the way I am.The book is packed with useful statistics that show just how much more difficult everyday things are for those of us with ADHD.For example, the book includes statistic such as only 12 percent of ADHD adults get a bachelors degree and only 4 percent of ADHD adults are able to establish and maintain a professional career.It also talks about all the great traits ADHD adults usually have such as creativity and guts.It quotes Forbes magazine as saying people with ADHD are 100 times as likely as people without it to start their own business.The book is full of facts and statistics.

While the book has a lot of useful information, this is not an advanced text.It does discuss the most popular current scientific theories as to the origin of the disorder, but is not packed with advanced discussion on the topic.It discusses the benefits of talk therapy and behavior modification as well as giving a great overview of the medication options, but you will need to seek more targeted advanced books if you want a really in-depth discussion.This book is really just a great overview and introduction.

The chapter on medication mentions almost all of the drugs I have seen anywhere else that have been studied for the condition including SSRI's, SNRI's, TCA's, mood stabilizers, antihypertensives and one I looked into thanks to seeing it in the book, Wellbutrin (bupropion).I had taken only various forms of Ritalin (concerta, metadate cd, etc.) since being diagnosed 8yrs ago until several months ago when I decided to try out some non-stimulant options.Until I really did my research, including reading this book, I didn't know there were so many non-stimulant options.Strattera worked for me, but made me depressed and anxious which was the complete opposite effect of Ritalin for me which had a calming effect.I stopped the Strattera and have been on Wellbutrin for 2 weeks and it is starting to work, so I am hopeful.If it works and I get off the stimulants I will have this book to thank for introducing me to the other options. ...

Product Description

This is the only book on Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) written in a structure that caters to the tendency for adults with ADHD to jump around. This essential guidebook begins by describing how the ADHD brain processes information and how that leads to typical challenges that people with ADHD experience, as well as why certain strategies are effective and others aren't. This lays the foundation for everything that follows, from getting diagnosed to an overview of the research of how ADHD affects people's lives. A thorough explanation of standard treatment options-including medication, therapy, and coaching-as well as alternative treatments, helps guide adults with ADHD to get the most from their healthcare providers. From there, the book provides an extensive collection of practical strategies to overcome common struggles in the areas of self-esteem, work, relationships, friendships, parenting, and everyday life. It covers everything from time management to getting organized. Brief, ADHD-friendly articles can stand alone or be read in sequence, making it the perfect book for the busy adult with ADHD who wants rock-solid information that is easily digestible.

5-0 out of 5 stars Real Help, Real Answers, Ugly Design
Don't let the horrendous, I-Published-This-Myself-Stock-Photo-Cover design fool you. This is the FIRST book you should get if you are an adult with ADHD. I haven't finished it (surprise!) but I've been listening to his podcast from day one, and that shares content with the book.

Not to knock some other fine books on ADHD, but if you've been diagnosed, you are probably looking for solutions to your problems. The problem is many books on adult ADHD are stuffed with anecdotes about people with ADHD. This is a book for someone who doesn't need the convincing and handholding.

Tuckman gives effective suggestions on how to deal with daily issues. The book is written in an ADD-friendly manner, so you can literally open it at any page and find something useful. The pages even have perforated corners so you can rip them to mark what you've already read. But I think you might be reading it again and again, anyway.

To Dr. Tuckman: for the next edition, put a little money into hiring a designer! If I had not been familiar with the podcast, I may have never picked up this book. UGLY cover. You'd think it was an Economics Theory textbook for a community college.

5-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic book
Written informatively, without attacking the ADHD reader and without feeling sorry for him or her.Taught me so much I didn't know about myself, highly recommended!

5-0 out of 5 stars Read the Table of Contents and you'll buy it!!
Is it legit to write a review _before_ you've actually read the book? Well, anyhow I'm going to...

I read 14 5-star reviews and felt sure this was a worthy book. But what with the change in terminology involving ADHD and ADD, I wasn't sure it was for me. (After finding my first book on the subject overseas after age 50, I diagnosed myself as ADD-Inattentive - a Space Cadet, not the Whirling Dervish type.)

So I looked at the Table of Contents... and WOW! The organization, the topics, and the Good Doctor's wisdom and humor shine throughout. It seems to cover _everything_!

Some examples chosen _at random_: "Consistently Inconsistent: I Can Do Anything Once" "Money Management: Where Does All My Money Go?" "Self-Image and Sense of Effectiveness: A Little Bit Dented" "Driving: No Big Deal -- Until It Is"

I didn't read the whole TOC (no surprise there, considering...) or look for specific proof that ADD-Inattentive is covered (though I feel confident it is) -- because I was so excited by what I _did_ read, that I wanted to rush to the review box and tell YOU about it! (A bit of impulsivity there, but justified. And you'll thank me for it later.)

Now I have to run off to the ordering section and actually buy the book! I urge you: just read the TOC and you'll be stunned how many bells it rings with you!

5-0 out of 5 stars Top recommendation
I have read numerous books on adult ADHD (I am a late diagnosis adult), and this is by far the best book I have ever read on the subject. If you were to read only one book, read this one (although I would recommend reading more for a broad perspective). Other reviews submitted here provide good specifics; I am writing this to add another 5 star recommendation. The book is a must read about adult ADHD, and a book I would highly recommend about ADHD as it pertains to any age group.

5-0 out of 5 stars The best and dare I say the only book you will need to buy on adult ADHD.
I have read a whole heap of books on ADHD since being diagnosed and none of them have ever given me what I wanted. They tend to focus on case studies of suffers, lack information for adults with ADHD, have too much information on what to do if you think you might have ADHD, be outdated, focus on pseudo-science/'natural remedies', contain loads of fluffy talk such as 'ADHD is really a gift' and they quite often lack any real helpful information on what you can do to begin to address the issues that you're faced with as an adult with ADHD. More Attention, Less Deficit is very different.

Dr Tuckman's book is split up into 4 sections: 'Understanding ADHD in adults', 'Start with effective treatment', 'Build the necessary skills' and 'Improve specific areas of your life'. The book is wonderfully accessible and it's designed to be read however you like - you can read it right through or just dip into it when you want to read about a particular topic. Personally I read it right through, but I still find myself dipping into it all the time as I try to put new skills into action or try and remind myself where I went wrong.

If you want a concise, up to date, accessible and authoritative book explaining what adult ADHD is, how to live with it and that is packed with scientifically sound information (rather than dodgy new age weirdness)then look no further. If you're like me and struggle with reading anyway don't waste any time or money on any other book. Once you have read and adsorb this one any further information you could possibly want is on the web. ... Read more

Excellent resource, easy to read and understand. I highly recommend this book as a grandparent of a child with ADD and as a health professional!

5-0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly thorough and good read
I was reluctant to pick up a book with "for Dummies" in the title because I do not believe that I am a dummy!However, a lot of the books on ADHD that I found either focused too much on ADHD in childhood or had too many long anecdotes/ case studies.This book was an excellent introduction to ADHD.It took the disorder seriously and laid out every aspect on diagnosis, treatment, familial issues, etc. in a simple manner.The information provided was eye-opening, and the book was full of details that showed the depth of this disorder.This book never gave the impression that ADHD is just a collection of undesirable behaviors or laziness or what have you.It's a terrific reference book. ...

1-0 out of 5 stars Skip this one
While the authors are upbeat and encouraging, they are pushing an online evaluation tool to identify your child's strengths. Nice idea, but it costs $ for another report about your child, and very little guidance on how to use it. You have to trust that the report will give you the advice you're seeking, and didn't find in the book.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good book. ADHD kids need all the understanding and help they can get
When I was growing up, no one knew ADHD as a learning disability existed.With the knowledge we have now, we can help, instead of hurt, these kids, and take advantage of the strengths these kids have as well as help them deal with their perception by society.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Must Read for Parents With ADD Children
As a grandparent of a 3 year old and a life long ADD'er, this book provided excellent information. In fact even if you don't have anyone in the family with ADD and you think you might have ADD, it worth a read.
I would recommend any of Edward Hallowell books on ADD, I learned much from each one.

This book is a refreshing approach to parenting children with ADD.I wish I had read it years ago when my child was first diagnosed.It is written in an easy-to-read, very interesting way that keeps you wanting to finish the book.It also has some very practical tips.Most important, it gives a parent hope at a time when that seems impossible.

Product Description
What does it mean to a kid to be labeled attention-deficitdisordered (ADD)? Or to have "hyperactive" added to the label(ADHD)? What can teachers do to boost the success of studentswith attention and behavioral difficulties? Are we relying toomuch on medication for these kids and not enough on newperspectives on learning, child development, the child'ssocioeconomic and cultural background, biological andpsychological research, and the learner's emotional and socialneeds?

Armstrong urges educators and parents to look for the positivecharacteristics in learners who may carry the ADD/ADHD label. Arethey bursting with energy? Are they intensely creative? Do theyenjoy hands-on learning? Are they natural leaders? Are theyunusually introspective and reflective? We need to look beyond a"deficit" approach and embrace a more holistic view oflearnersthat includes teaching to their multiple intelligences, learningstyles, and other brain-friendly approaches. For example, hereare some classroom activities for kids who "can't sit still":

- Learning spelling words by having kids jump up out of theirseats on the vowels and sit down on the consonants.
- Mastering the multiplication tables by forming a conga line,moving around the classroom counting from 1 to 30 out loud, andon every multiple of 3 shaking their hips and legs.
- Showing patterns of molecular bonding in chemistry classthrough a "swing your atom" square dance.

Thomas Armstrong, an educator and psychologist from SonomaCounty, California, has more than 26 years of teachingexperience, from the primary through the doctoral level. He isthe author of two other ASCD books, "Multiple Intelligences in theClassroom" and "Awakening Genius in the Classroom." ... Read more
