Hi


I have not yet finished it, just got it last week. I am not impressed with the theories. You can teach ALL the behavoiral, and Cognitive skills you want and some kids will STILL need meds to function. No one child with ADHD is the same as any other, so this "across the board" approach just will not work for some kids. IMO , I should have used my $9.95 on something else,

A child may HAVE ADHD, but it is not what they ARE. Never tell a child they ARE ADHD.
