Learning to Slow Down & Pay Attention 3ed: A Book for Kids About ADHD
Learning to Slow Down and Pay Attention is written especially for youngsters with ADD. It's packed with cartoons, activity pages, and checklists. This is not an instruction manual, but a fun, friendly workbook packed with original cartoons and funny graphics. Throughout the text, kids get important cues for behaviour such as · With My Friends · At School · The Easy Way to Clean Up a Bedroom · Getting Ready in the Morning · I Forgot! · Things I Want to Change.
From the Introduction... In this new, third edition of Learning to Slow Down and Pay Attention, we have made a number of changes to reflect changes in our understanding of ADHD and in our approach to its treatment. For example, in response to growing research on the safety and efficacy of stimulant medication in treating ADHD, we explain more to the child about medication and how it works. Another important change in this edition is that we've increased our child-centered focus. While the majority of what's written about ADHD emphasizes behaviors that bother adults, we've increased our emphasis on those aspects of ADHD that are troublesome to the children, trying to look at the world more from their point of view. Parents can read it with their children, or children can dive right in by themselves. For parents, there is information on behaviour management and ADD groups, as well as a list of suggested readings. For Children ages 6-10 years
