Living With Add : A Workbook for Adults With Attention Deficit Disorder by M. Susan Roberts, Gerard J. Jansen (Contributor) "This workbook enables adults with Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) to identify the personal problems caused by the condition and deal with and minimize those problems. Although medication has been shown to help adults with ADD, this workbook provides an alternative (or complement) to conventional treatment. Charts and tables."

Love is a Start....The Real Challenges of Raising Children with Emotional Disorders (Revised Edition) by Donna Shilts "As an adoptive parent of two children -- one of whom suffered neurological damage as a result of early neglect -- I read this book with great interest. It is a very realistic account of the struggles one faces in understanding what needs to be done. I could relate so well to the differing (and often contradictory) diagnoses one receives; to the inability of doctors and psychologists to understand the problems you face; as well as thoses in the school systems to understand how your child learns. I identified with the struggle to decide if medication will help and with the realization that as the parent you and only you can serve as the best advocate for your child. This is one of the better accounts of sensory integration issues and I intend to recommend it to others, as it gives many good illustrations of how important sensory issues can be. I very much appreciated the honesty in the book. There are so many times we question our ability to parent; wonder what we have taken on; and try to find the correct strategy to manage difficult behaviors. Ms. Shilts has really "been there" and I am so grateful for her story. I would hope to see a follow up book in a few years as I grew so attached to both boys that I would love to know how they are faring in their teenage years."
Moving Beyond A.D.D/A.D.H.D. : An Effective, Holistic, Mind-Body Approach by Rita Kirsch Debroitner, Avery Hart (Contributor), Rita Ellena Kirsch "Fellow ADDers. First step is to recovery is to admit that you have a problem. In this wonderful book Debroitner et al say that ADD can be overcome, can be cured, by the basic fundamental techniques of good living, healthy eating, correct breathing, excercise and meditation- without drugs. The key is to get in touch with your soul. I am an adult and have a severe case of ADD, and in stressful situations, my attention span can be measured in seconds, but by remembering to follow some of the techniques outlined in the book, ( such as "Jet Knees") I could control my impulses considerably. This is a great book. Read it. Use it."
