ADHD, Tics & Me! is a must-get book for children, parents and teachers. It follows the story of Jamie who clearly explains how tics affect his day-to-day life. The book is written in language that children can relate to. It encourages young people to think about their own lives and experiences and offers suggestions how adults can help.
ADHD, Tics & Me! is a very accessible book that will appeal to young children who have been recently diagnosed with ADHD or Tourette Syndrome. The authors have done well by normalizing some of the subtleties of the conditions. I particularly like the fact that there is a focus on personality, interests, and hobbies which empowers the reader to see that they are much more than a label for medical symptoms. The book will help with improving knowledge but more importantly help with self-esteem issues which is often neglected in books on the subject.
