From Library Journal:

Verdict: A new way to think of attention deficit disorder that highlights the positives and possibilities rather than ADD's negative connotations. Highly recommended for public libraries. Background: Hallowell (coauthor, Delivered from Distraction) directs the Hallowell Center for Cognitive and Emotional Health; Jensen is CEO of the REACH Institute (the Resource for Advancing Children's Health). Here, they have joined forces to help parents, caregivers, and teachers determine how best to support and nurture children with ADD. The text demonstrates how to develop an understanding of and empathy for those with ADD and then how to recognize, emphasize, and use each child's unique strengths, rather than focus on their difficulties. Shame, fear, and poor self-esteem are reduced as a result. The authors provide appendixes of tips for using behavioral strategies and school information and resources. An annotated resource list is also included.-Lisa M. Jordan, Johnson Cty. Lib., KS (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
