Meet Ben - a young boy with ADHD, who invites readers to learn about ADHD from his perspective. He explains how he was diagnosed and what he has learnt about ways to relieve his symptoms, and how friends and adults can help him at home and at school.
With illustrations, and at 58 pages, this is a resource which can be used by professionals, parents and children themselves. In the chapter aimed at the practitioner's approach, priorities include good communication, minimising distractions, and breaking down tasks. Professionals will also glean much from the advice targeted at parents, on how they can work in partnership to improve outcomes for children with ADHD.
