Willie : Raising and Loving a Child With Attention Deficit Disorder by Ann Colin "This was a very close-up look at the day-to-day life of a mother and her ADHD child. The author uses journal entries to track the frustration, worries, behavioral difficulties and lack of acceptance she and her son face. As the parent of a child with ADHD, I felt that this book was telling my son's story. It was very specific and accurate, not biased towards or against medication, and it presented a personal view of a very pervasive and painful disorder for both child and parent. I would recommend this book highly to anyone who wonders if their preschooler has ADHD, to professionals who doubt the significance of ADHD and to others who would like to know what life is really like for families like the author's and mine without all of the media hype and controversy. A very readable and touching story."
You & Your A.D.D. Child : How to Understand and Help Kids With Attention Deficit Disorder by Paul Warren, Jody Capehart, Sandy Dengler "Children with Attention Deficit Disorder (A.D.D.) need a special kind of care. Because of their unique outlook on life, they often have trouble concentrating in school and tend to rattle parents and teachers. Written by a pediatrician and a teacher, You and Your A.D.D. Child offers advice for diagnosing A.D.D., understanding the uniqueness of the A.D.D. child, finding treatment options, and more."
Dysinhibition Syndrome: How to Handle Anger and Rage in Your Child or Spouse by Rose Wood (I strongly recommend this book for any family member who is suffering from anger and rage from their loved one. It discusses in great detail how to manage this behavior in yourself and in treatment for the other person. There are not many books written for people that suffer this kind of "intermittent explosive disorder" and this book will help guide you).
Your Hyperactive Child : A Parent's Guide to Coping With Attention Deficit Disorder by Barbara Ph.D. Ingersoll "This book is a must for any parent of an ADHD child. This book should be a requirement for parents of ADHD/ADD children. It provides so much information and is a delight to read. Any parent of an ADHD child will find this book both entertaining and enlightening. As the parent of two ADHD children, this book has provided both valuable tools, techniques and insights on how to help my children grow and learn, and tidbits of wisdom and humor to help me cope and continue on. This book helped me stop beating myself and start helping my children and myself. Barbara's book has been a God-send to me and should be on every ADHD child parent's nightstand."
