This third edition of reflects changes in understanding of ADHD and in our approach to its treatment.. While the majority of what's written about ADHD emphasizes behaviors that bother adults, this book emphasises those aspects of ADHD that are troublesome to the children, trying to look at the world more from their point of view.
  • As a mental health professional, "Learning to Slow Down and Pay Attention" is my go to resource for ADHD. I purchase a personal copy for each one of my clients diagnosed with this condition as it promotes UNDERSTANDING, ACCEPTANCE, OWNERSHIP, and EMPOWERMENT. It's also a great tool to initiate PARENT-CHILD COMMUNICATION. I saw reviews that mentioned using it with their elementary age kids (8 and 9), but my recommendation would be to use it with middle to high school age kids. It's not the most exciting book (from a child's perspective), but it's beneficial and cost effective and written just for them. To a normal functioning individual (or even a parent or adult) these practical solutions may seem like a matter of "common sense", but to a child whose executive functioning is disrupted by ADHD they are useful tips to enhance their personal development and social skills.

  • I was skeptical about how my 8 year old would respond to this book- Would it engage him? Would he accept the ideas? Would it offer ideas we haven't already tried? My husband and I read each chapter (or section, some chapters are long) with him and talk about it. This has been wonderful for a couple of reasons. First it's helping our son articulate what he experiences, feels, and wants/needs. Second, it is providing us with a purposeful time to sit down with him and talk about HIM. And finally, while the ideas aren't necessarily new (i.e. picking out your clothes and preparing your backpack the night before, making lists) he is receiving the suggestions differently and taking ownership of them. It's been empowering for him to have a name and a definition for what he faces, not as an excuse but as an understanding of why his life is a little more challenging and what he can do to make it easier and feel successful. He also REALLY loves the activities at the end of each chapter and the cartoon-like illustrations.

  • My son was diagnosed with ADHD this time last year and it's been a really difficult process for our family to understand. Not only to understand the obstacles my son faces but how he interacts with his older and younger brothers. This book was like a gift from the gods. My son and I read a chapter every night and it's not only helped my son realize that he isn't alone or a freak or weirdo like he has been calling himself, he's realized that hes just a little different from his siblings and friends. It's helped us both realize that not only does he have to put in alot of determination and commitment to work harder to achieve what others find very simple. He knows that he may be different but he is very special as well. Through this book, he realizes that he isn't alone in what he goes through daily. That has helped him so much just in this past week at school! It has also given me so much insight to what he faces, how he feels and the fact that even though it may not seem like he is putting in his full effort, he does that plus more. It's also helped us both get much more organized in his routines and has sparked new ideas on what we can do to help him succeed. I am purchasing another copy tonight so my son's teacher can read it as well. We've written and highlighted throughout ours so I was thinking if we did the same and gave it to his teacher it could help in the classroom. When he goes to 2nd grade next fall, I'll do the same thing.

    This past year has been so hard on my son. I have felt like the worst mother during the past few months but after reading book after book, articles after article, I feel that myself, my son and our entire family is more on the same page. We still have our rough days but this book had helped our family tremendously.

  • Excellent book overall, though I'm not sure I completely agree with the lower end of the age range being 6. My daughter is an advanced reader (DRA 38) at age 7, and did find some of the vocabulary a little daunting. The first chapter entirely focused on all the aspects of my child's life that was "challenging" or "different" with the reader's current environment, causing her to view her environment and experience in a negative light. I know and realized the rest of the chapters deal with building coping skills and learning strategies to counteract those challenging areas, but I think it just caused my daughter to get more discouraged - some positive passages or humor would have been far more effective here.

  • As a clinical psychologist I recommend this book to many families. Honestly, I think it's a fantastic read for parents and caregivers who are trying to understand how symptoms of ADHD impact a child. It's also a great resource for children who are ready to learn more about the diagnosis of ADHD without insinuation of blame or stigma. I highly recommend this book.

  • Great book! My ADHD son has enjoyed reading it with me (we do a few pages at a time) -- and(!!) he's even begun independently applying some of the strategies outlined in the book! We've seen great results with a lot less frustration and triggered outbursts. YAY!!!

  • Not quite what I expected. My 5yo son was recently diagnosed with combination ADHD. I thought this book would help him understand himself better. This seems more appropriate for older kids. I bought the Cory Stories for him which he really enjoyed.

  • Concise book for elementary-middle school age children. My 3 year old isn’t at the point to be able to really understand or apply any of it yet. Kind of useful for parents, had a few helpful ideas and tips. I wish it offered a bit more for moms & dads but I probably just need to look into something more in-depth.
