Reviews

Because we are getting Ben's point of view about how he feels about his ADHD and how it affects others, we get real insight into what this condition must be like to those with it... This book could be of real importance of children with ADHD, giving them the knowledge about themselves that can be so important when dealing with a serious condition and also helping them to understand that they are not alone. It will also be important to families, teachers and friends because they will find hints and practices to enable them to support the child. An important book all round. -- Healthy Books This book is a perfect choice for every child diagnosed with ADHD and lends a voice to children with ADHD who are unable to express themselves. Written in an engaging and conversational style, the book provides a window for parents and professionals to see how children with ADHD feel rather than how other's perceive them. I highly recommend this book for children and parents, as well as professionals working with children who have ADHD. -- Dr Inyang Takon, Consultant Paediatrician, Queen Elizabeth II Hospital, Hertfordshire
