Description

Living with ADD/ADHD can be hectic, and parenting a child with this disorder can feel like an uphill struggle when even the simplest of tasks causes havoc. This book addresses the issues of organization and time management in relation to ADD/ADHD, suggesting practical ways of organizing your child's day and turning chaos into calm.

Accommodating short attention spans and short fuses, Cheryl Carter shows how, by using the F.I.R.S.T method (Fun, Individualism, Rules, Simplicity and Time management), even the most hyperactive and easily distracted of children can be taught to make their bed, pack their school bag, and generally get organized! The author recognizes that children hate anything that is boring, and finds fun ways around even the most mundane of tasks. Her no-nonsense, step-by-step strategies, in combination with positive affirmations and realistic demands, will get ADD/ADHD children organized, and from A to B without a hitch.

This book is a must-have for any flagging parent struggling to structure their child's life (and indeed their own!). It will also be of interest to family members, teachers, and anybody close to a child with ADD/ADHD.

Reviews

This book is a common sense guide to helping children with ADD/ADHD... The chapters or 'time and transitions' and 'ADD/ADHD questions' are particularly pertinent and many parents will find these useful. For the professional working in the field it is felt to be a good summary of many of the strategies usually discussed with parents and schools.

For parents tired of their ADD/ADHD children's forgetfulness, lost homework, messy bedrooms, and tantrums over chores, there's help in this easy-to-read yet long-lasting guide... Parents will not only appreciate Carter's informative strategies, all told in a conversational tone, but the myriad resources that wrap up this must-have guide. A Helpful Tips section, broken down by such catagories as chores, home life, and leisure time, will benefit any child, not only those with ADD and ADHD. Other resources comprise a list of equipment (e.g., an electronic dictionary and analog visual timer) beneficial to special needs children, a list of realistic chores for different age spans, multiple checklists (e.g., morning routine and night before school), and chart and planner templates. Together, these resources give parents the tools they need to help their ADD/ADHD children become more productive and independent.
