You and Your A.D.D. Child... by Jody Capehart

You and Your A.D.D. Child: How to Understand and Help Kids with Attention Deficit DisorderYou and Your A.D.D. Child: How to Understand and Help Kids with Attention Deficit Disorder by Jody Capehart

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


My son's specialist highly recommended this to us and I loved it. The tone was authoritative but not pretentious. As an unexpected bonus, it wasn't just based on steril, clinical over-my-head mumbo jumbo, made accessible for the non-PHD. This book included a spiritual approach which really gave me hope that maybe I'm not doing everything wrong after all. And it was so refreshing to hear that spritual nurturing is not only advisable but essnetial for the ADD child. It also addressed issues that I had never considered before, such as learning style and environment. But now that I know these things can have a huge impact on how an ADD child deals with the world, I hope it will be easier for me to change how I deal with him as I learn to help him cope. I would recommend it to any parent with an ADD child and to any educater.

note: since this is edition is a little older, the section on types of medications is outdated.

Still, I thought it was fabulous. Solid 5 stars.
