Change what you think you know about ADHD in boys.

In this two-part book Andrew and his neuroscientist mom each tell their story about living with the inattentive subtype of ADHD.

How do you survive life and middle school with an ADHD elephant in your brain? Kids with ADHD will relate to Andrew's reactions to everyday and school-related situations, like remembering to turn in homework, staying organized, and making friends. Using practical strategies Andrew learns to manage his ADHD even when his brain sometimes feels "like and overstuffed garbage can, the lid won't stay on and garbage is falling out all over the floor". He even realizes there is a positive side to having ADHD like creativity, fearlessness and hyperfocus.
Dr. Wilcox discusses the science behind ADHD, parent-to-parent, from someone living in the trenches, learning to work with Andrew's ADHD brain. She discusses the significance of various aspects of inattentive-type ADHD and the theory and practices of the education and medical professions related to them. Two helpful appendices include a means for parents to "diagnose" the inattentive subtype of ADHD and a list of resources for parents and children with ADHD.

This book provides unique insights into ADHD behaviors and suggests highly pragmatic and successfully implemented strategies for children with the inattentive subtype of ADHD and their parents (with implications for educators and others who work with ADHD children). A must read for kids with ADHD and their parents!
