Imagine your AD/HD students among the most successful in your classroom!

Diagnoses of AD/HD are exploding in the student population. As a teacher, administrator, staff developer or counsellor, it is up to you to meet the needs of these students. This remarkable book gives teachers and parents hope as it examines the positive attributes of AD/HD and builds on the characteristic strengths. By embracing, rather than resisting differences in AD/HD students, a very productive and rewarding learning relationship is possible.

A New View of AD/HD does a great job of examining the most current research and offering practical insight into how to get the best out of these distracted students. A common-sense approach offers concise action steps that really work. Your frustration will be dramatically reduced and your effectiveness will increase when you understand how to identify and teach to strengths instead of focusing on areas of weakness.
