Summary: "All kids with attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) want to manage their symptoms in order to get along better with others, build confidence, and succeed in school, but most don't have the skills they need to get their impulsive behavior under control. The ADHD Workbook for Kids offers a simple way to help children with ADHD learn these critical skills in just ten minutes a day. This workbook includes more than forty activities for kids developed by child psychologist Lawrence Shapiro that can help your child with ADHD handle everyday tasks, make friends, and build self-esteem while he or she learns to overcome the most challenging aspects of the disorder. Alone or with your help, your child can complete one ten-minute activity each day to learn how to make good decisions and discover easy techniques for staying focused when it's time to pay attention." - PUBLISHER'S WEBSITEReview: In a “Letter to Parents’ which opens this book the author explains that he has written this work book to “help your child learn new emotional, behavioural and social skills in four major areas of concern: behavior, school success, social development and self esteem. Some people call these skills “emotional intelligence”. Researchers tell us that emotional intelligence skills can be taught just like other skills, such as reading, hitting a baseball, or playing a violin.” This workbook is set out in a systematic way working through the four sections: Learning Self Control, Overcoming School Problems, Making and Keeping Friends and Feeling Good About Yourself. Each activity (a total of 44) is preceded by an illustrative example of the issue involved, how to avoid a bad result in these circumstances, decision making options, and ways to reinforce and practice lessons learned.
