Highly recommended for anyone working with ADHD kids.
this is a useful workbook... work such as this would be useful for many children who, although they do not have the ADHD label, do experience problems with many of the areas dealt with in the workbook.
The topics covered demosntrate that the authors have a secure knowledge of the problems those with ADHD experience. Chapters deal with self-esteem, attention and concentration, keeping cool and calm, organisation, friendships and managing homework... I think it is also true to say that work such as this would be useful for many children who, although without the ADHD label, do experience problems with many of the areas dealt with in the workbook.
The workbook is a tool that can be used to effectively develop and deliver an individualised package of care. This is achieved through the clever use of chapters which target key areas in the young person's development such as self-esteem, attention, organization, stayign calm and friendships. The authors have used an informative and tool-based approach, which provides the user with a vast array of tools and frameworks that assist the professional and young person in identifying areas for development.
Helping Kids and Teens with ADHD in School: A Workbook for Classroom Support and Managing Transitions should be in every educator's library: it provides chapters that focus on different key issues affecting children with ADHD around the time of school transition from organization to friendships, and it provides tested strategies and tips in a photocopiable workbook format designed to help adults work collaboratively with youngsters. A 'must' for any serious educator's library.
