If you love someone with ADHD...

If you love someone with ADHD please take the time to listen to this book in full. Opening the door to this scientific point of view has stopped me in my tracks from traveling down a failed path many parents before me have. My son is happy. I am happy. The school day is improving. I do not feel like the school is fighting us but working with us thanks to the tips and information provided in this book. My expectations are still realistic and I know what to do when symptoms seem to explode. I now know what ADHD is and that makes is manageable.
