The ADHD Affected Athlete

Considering today's high level of interest in ADHD, it is surprising there are no books specifically aimed at ADHD Affected Athletes, until now. This book explains how ADHD affects athletes, coaches and parents. The author treats ADHD not as a liability to athletics, but as an asset that can be developed. He examines how good coaches can easily make the wrong assumption about ADHD athletes. The author also examines which sports, positions and styles provide the ADHD Affected Athlete with the greatest opportunity to succeed as an athlete. This book is full of examples and suggestions that will help anyone better understand the condition and how to help ADHD Affected Athletes reach their athletic potential. "In a classic "catch 22" scenario, where would a baseball coach typically play someone who isn't "paying attention" or seems distracted? The coach will play that person where the least amount of action occurs. And in baseball (or softball) that is right field. Yet, because nothing happens in right field the ADDer becomes even less interested in the game and the sport in general." It also includes sections on the effect of ADHD medications on the athlete and a section for parents of ADHD Affected Athletes.

About the Author

While Michael Stabeno has had several careers, this is his first book. An American, he attended Simon Fraser University in Vancouver, Canada on a football scholarship and was also a founding member of that school's highly respected wrestling program. He graduated with a Bachelor of Commerce degree. A former United States Naval Officer, he served in a variety of billets including Operational Test Director for the Tomahawk Cruise Missile Weapon System. After leaving active service, he enjoyed a career in Human Resource Management with several multi-national corporations or their subsidiaries. These included Lockheed, Sulzer (Swiss), Philips (Dutch), and Siemens (German). It was during this period that he became active coaching his son's youth teams and later with high school and university wrestlers. It was through the diagnosis of both of his sons (and later himself) that he became aware of ADHD and how it affects athletes at all levels. Frustrated with the lack of information available on ADHD affected athletes, he wrote this book by drawing from his unique life experiences with athletics, military, human resources, and international business. He and his wife Karen (a former member of the Canadian National Track team) live in Beaverton, Oregon. Both of their sons attend universities in Canada.
