I am only half way through reading this book and it has helped me immensely. The iceberg diagram helped my ADD child and me prepare for a 504 meeting at the school. It helped us come up with all of the problems she is experiencing with ADD and Executive Function Deficits so that we could point to the diagram and show how they all are related. Also the description of accommodations that can be made by the teachers is amazing. I am ordering extra copies of the book to give to the teachers so I can say to them, "Here is a book I think you need to read so you can provide the accommodations my daughter deserves."
I have a teen with ADHD, and I also have ADHD. The book had some very useful information, BUT, also did a lot of cross referencing to other sections of the book - I would start to read one section, and by the time I finished reading, I might have looked at 5 or 6 sections, and not finished any of them. Once you get used to that, it is a good book. There are also several other ones that are just as useful as well. You do not need to buy the Parent version and the Teacher version of this book - I have both, and they have a lot of the same information in both. The parent version had a section on dealing with driving, curfews, etc. and theTeacher one has more on techniques for the classroom.
This book is written by a teacher, and a mother, and she has combined her strengths and knowledge to write these informative, precise and useful "one-pagers" or "two-pagers" on a specific aspect of working with a student with executive functioning deficits. The short summaries are great to give to a principal or administrator to explain what the disorder is. Her advice is very practical, and she finds lots of ways of working within the general education environment to help these kids.
