    A diagnostician at difficult child's school recommended a book, ADD Quick Tips - Practical Ways to Manage Attention Deficit Disorder Successfully. I wish it had been recommended 7 yrs ago when we first started down this road.

    It'd be a good resource for many; most particularly if a parent is new to ADD/ADHD.

    This book is primarily written for parents and teachers. The diagnostician said she keeps it in her library for teachers.

    I bought my book on line used for about $8.00.

    Table of Contents

    *Answers for ADD Questions
    *Using this Book
    *A Disorder of Desperation
    *Management = Success
    *Quick Tip Guidelines

    The book goes into some detail about math and reading problems that can occur with-ADHD, fine/gross motor skill problems and how it may be impacting performance, etc. Pretty good little reference book in my opinion.
