In this new, third edition of Learning to Slow Down and Pay Attention, the authors have made a number of changes to reflect changes in understanding of ADHD and in our approach to its treatment. For example, in response to growing research on the safety and efficacy of stimulant medication in treating ADHD, we explain more to the child about medication and how it works. Another important change in this edition is an increas in child-centered focus. 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.
This book is fantastic!! It is well written for kids to read and is easy to understand. I was finding a bit hard to explain what ADHD is about. But this book helped me and my daughter to understand more about it. My daughter actually see the problems she was having by reading this book. Even my daughter's psychiatrist was interested in having this book as she didn't know this book existed! I'd recommend to anyone who wants to teach kids what ADHD is and how to teach kids to help themselves. GREAT BOOK to have!
This book is well written for a child from a childs perspective. I bought it thinking it was a book for me, but its definitely teaching children how to slow down and pay attention.
Excellent book for kids from about age 9 or so.
