What is ADHD?

Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a biologically-based behavioral condition that impacts the management systems of the brain called executive functions. These functions include impulse and emotional control, working memory, initiation, time management, planning, organization, flexibility, sustained attention, and self-evaluation.

How to Use the Deck

The ADHD Solution Deck gives you practical tools to help kids with ADHD improve their abilities for regulating words and actions, managing feelings, initiating, planning, organizing, staying on task, improving working memory, increasing focus, and learning self-awareness.

The deck is divided into five color-coded suits to reflect the 5C’s approach:

Self- Control – Manage your own feelings first so you can act effectively and teach your child with ADHD to do the same.

Compassion – Meet your child where they are, not where you expect them to be, with empathy and patience that’s appropriate to their stage of development.

Collaboration – Work together with your child to find solutions to daily concerns, using a “we” attitude instead of a “you should” approach. Make agreements about solutions with their input. Focus on changing one thing at a time.

Consistency – Do what you say you will do, as much as possible, without expecting perfection from yourself or your child. Aim for steadiness. Nurture your child’s efforts to do their best and focus on cause-and-effect learning. Notice and acknowledge what’s working by continuously offering words and actions ofnencouragement, praise, and validation. Identify traits, behaviors, or skills at which your child excels and nurture them.

Celebration – Notice and acknowledge what’s working by continuously offering words and actions of encouragement, praise, and validation. Identify traits, behaviors, or skills at which your child excels and nurture them.

You can select a card at random at any given time for guidance and support or work in a specific category for a period of time. Learning new skills takes time and practice, so plan to revisit the cards.

Reviews

“Dr. Sharon Saline has created a wonderful, innovative, and user-friendly tool for parents and families with ADHD.  The ADHD Solution Deck indeed provides solutions.  The cards provide powerful strategies and skills to better manage ADHD, bolster self-esteem, enhance family connections, and reduce stress.  I love how the cards provide focus and assistance in five specific areas (Dr. Saline’s famous “Five C’s model” of ADHD Parenting: self-control, compassion, collaboration, consistency, and celebration).   Each card has a quote from a child or teen, defines a challenge, and then provides the tool to succeed in the area.  The cards are colorful, perfectly sized, and engaging to promote repeated reading so the information can be absorbed over time until the skill is mastered.  The cards are easier to read than a book, but still provide the vital tools to help families with ADHD thrive.  Highly recommended!”

“Great for Parents — This is awesome and great for therapists to use with parents of ADHDers. Highly recommended.”

“A Great Tool to Help Parents and Kids in an ADHD Family — The ADHD Solution Deck is like an ADHD Parenting Coach in box!! At a loss for how to help your ADHD kid? Did you learn some great parenting skills, but seem to forget them when everything is “hitting the fan.” When parents get stressed- for any reason- they can have difficulty remembering skills to help their ADHD kids. Dr. Saline’s cards provide proven tools and reminders to help parents and their kids manage the challenges of ADHD. If you can’t have Dr. Saline move in to help you in person, this is the next best thing!”

“Pick a Card – Any Card! — Managing ADHD is complicated, and sometimes you just need a helpful, little boost. Sharon Saline’s ADHD Solution Deck is fun to use. Pull a card in the morning and let it guide your parenting throughout the day; or pull a card instead of pulling your hair out when tensions start to rise. Manage your kids’ ADHD one strategy at a time!”

Elaine Taylor-Klaus, ImpactADHD®
“An incredible resource! — I am so grateful for this ADHD Solutions deck! I love how it offers not only practical tools and strategies, but also honest insights into what kids and parents are thinking and feeling, which helps support the very suggestions being offered. This is a gem of a resource for parents, educators and therapists!”
“A MUST-HAVE for parents of kids with ADHD! — Words can’t describe how much I wish The ADHD Solution Deck was available when my son was diagnosed with ADHD 12 years ago, or anytime since. The 5 themes Dr. Saline focuses are spot on for effective ADHD parenting. It’s a positive parenting approach that actually WORKS for kids with ADHD. If you want to help your child develop confidence and confidence so they can thrive, you must have The ADHD Solutions Deck in your parenting toolbox.”
