Summary The book begins by explaining the common signs of ADHD. It then looks at the brain and discusses what researchers have discovered about Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. The remaining chapters detail the components of the program, including its principles, its goals, and the practical ways in which these goals can be achieved. The authors recognize that all children are different, so the program has the flexibility to work within a child's comfort level while still attaining the necessary level of discipline. The text concludes with a discussion of medications and ADHD, and what's right for your child. Some of the most successful people in the world have ADHD, but just like star athletes, they have discovered that developing their own unique ways of focusing enables them to get ahead.
