What are ADD and ADHD? How can kids diagnosed with ADD and ADHD help themselves succeed in school, get along better at home, and form healthy, pleasurable relationships? In kid-friendly language and a format that welcomes reluctant and easily-distracted readers, this comprehensive survival guide helps kids know they're not alone and offers practical advice and strategies for taking care of oneself, modifying behaviour, enjoying school, having fun, and dealing (when needed) with doctors, counsellors, and medication. It includes real-life scenarios, quizzes, and a special message for parents.
