When I grew up, the diagnosis of ADHD wasn’t as prevalent. Over the years, I’ve seen it described as a problem, a benefit, and as an excuse to misbehave. I wanted to read this book to better understand how I could be helpful to the people I know with ADHD.
After providing background information and statistics about ADHD, Dr. Jim Poole goes into sharing how it can be focused and seen as a strength. For years, kids with ADHD have been viewed as having below average learning abilities. However, Dr. Poole aims to change that view, and show that they just need guidance, structure, and patience. He gives easy to follow advice for helping your child see themselves as capable of learning and being successful.
If you have children, or work with children, who have been diagnosed with ADHD, better called Fastbraiin in the book, Flipping ADHD on its Head can give you a good start on helping them do better in life and school.
