“Dr. Saline’s flair for theater, refreshing wit, candor, and ability to translate technical information for a lay audience are qualities that are rare to find in a clinical psychologist. She shares a depth of knowledge and breadth of experience in her accessible, instructive and entertaining presentations. I highly recommend her to any parent, teacher, or mental health professional interested in adolescents, the brain, ADD/ADHD, or the human condition!”

“Dr. Sharon, in her role as consulting psychologist and workshop presenter, has been a welcome addition to the Montessori School of Northampton school community as a whole and to my classroom of 9-12 year old students. Sharon is a fierce advocate for our students with special needs and their families. Her keen understanding, intelligence and sensitivity of the social and emotional lives of children and the adults who serve them brought the much needed clarity I needed to be a more effective teacher.”

“Dr. Saline has spoken at several Small Boarding School Associations conferences. Every time, she fulfills my expectations and then some. People at other presentations repeatedly reference the information she provides and leave with many useful tools and insights. In 2013, at our annual conference at the Purnell School, she was the perfect Keynote speaker–strong and engaging for an audience of over 200 educational consultants and educators.”

All our kids deserve to be loved in the best way that helps them grow and mature. Adults play a key role in this, and Dr. Sharon Saline has helped make this more a reality through her book.
Dr. Sharon Saline did an excellent job of shedding light on what ADHD is and how to better help those who struggle with this condition.
Something I noticed throughout the book was that many of the concepts she teaches also help those dealing with difficult moments in life or trauma.
