“What Your ADHD Child Wishes You Knew”, also provides powerful insights into such common ADHD challenges as dealing with strong emotions, homework, friendships, and managing technology.  The proven tips and strategies shared are easy to both understand and implement.  Not every ADHD book is written by an author who “gets it”; Dr. Saline does.  Highly Recommended!

Dr. Saline’s “What Your ADHD Child Wishes You Knew” absolutely lives up to its title.  Every nail head is hit in the pages of this book.  What truly stands out are concrete skills that parents can use to empathically relate to their ADHD children.  The result is a child feeling respected and understood which then leads to a collaborative relationship with their parents and a compassionate relationship with themselves!  The Five C Model presented in the book provides an easy to understand road map of education, acceptance and accountability where the destination is a deeper, more authentic relationship with your child and a child that will feel more empowered in the world.

As a professional specializing in the diagnosis and treatment of ADHD, I am heartened to read a book about ADHD that is practical, substantive, and engaging. Most people with ADHD can’t sustain interest in books about ADHD. This one is different. Dr. Saline does an amazing job of weaving important scientifically based research and knowledge about ADHD with compassionate and effective strategies for helping kids and teens with ADHD thrive.

What a great book! As a parent of two ADHD children, I wish that I’d had it earlier. It makes sense of so much of my experience. I’m sure that many parents will find the practical advice very helpful, but what really moved me was how it explained the ADHD brain and the subjective experience of children with ADHD. So many of the struggles and frustrations that I went through are illuminated here.

“I’m delighted to have Laura, of The ADHD Mama, read a portion of my book aloud! The part that really resonated with her: the impact of family members’ opinions of ADHD.  Please view and listen here — and share your responses!”
