Review

"It is both a pleasure and a privilege to provide this strong and unequivocal endorsement of so informative and consumer–friendly a book as this one. Grounded in the latest science of ADHD, filled with exceptionally detailed advice . . . parents and educators will find this book to be exceptionally useful in raising a successful ADHD child." ––Russell A. Barkley, Ph.D., professor of psychiatry, Medical University of South Carolina, and author, Taking Charge of ADHD "For over a decade, Sandra Rief’s How to Reach and Teach Children with ADD/ADHD has been the most definitive and user–friendly ‘go–to’ guide for teachers and parents eager to help children with ADHD succeed in school, home, and life overall. Now updated with the latest research findings from the last ten years, this book outstrips even the original. Unlike so many other volumes, this book is hands–on, well–organized, extremely readable, and full of the kind of wise, practical advice that only comes from someone who has been there (and continues to be there!) helping teachers, parents, children, and youth struggling with ADHD. I especially like the focus on different ages, school settings, and subjects. My highest recommendation for this book, and my greatest praise for Sandra making this invaluable resource available!" ––Peter S. Jensen, M.D., director, Center for the Advancement of Children’s Mental Health and Ruane Professor of Child Psychiatry at Columbia University "Sandra Rief is one of the most astute as well as compassionate voices in the world about ADHD. She really gets it, and this book will give you what she gets. A wonderful contribution and valuable, practical resource for all teachers, parents, and clinicians." ––Edward Hallowell, M.D., author, When Your Worry About the Child You Love and coauthor , Driven to Distraction "This valuable resource should be at every teacher’s fingertips! Sandra Rief offers current research–based strategies and information on ADHD that are a must read for every educator." ––Ellen Stantus, special education director, Davis School District, Farmington, Utah "This book not only addresses the latest research on this neuro–biological difference, but goes further by offering creative strategies for home and school in order to help these students reach their full potential. As always, Sandra Rief fills her book with what to do about it." ––Jill Murphy, special educator, ADHD life skills and academic coach, ADD Resources Parent Support, and mother of two children with ADD/ADHD, Bonney Lake, Washington

As an individual who has taught at the same school as Sandy Rief, I can attest that what you read in this book can be applied to your classroom. The author is an amazing teacher, who has exceptional knowledge about children with ADD and ADHD. She has taken this knowledge and put it into a book so she can help others who work with these wonderful children.

Format: Paperback
This book is extremely practical. It describes my 11 year old son perfectly. I was desperate, thinking that there was something wrong with my son, with our family, and now I see that he has a physical neurological problem. The book provides practical advice to parents and teachers on how to deal with these wonderful special children who need to be treated differently in order to maintain their self esteem and grow to be valuable members of society. Very highly recommended.

Great information for parents too! 29 May 2007
By T. L. Frameli - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
My daughter's teacher loaned me this book after I shared with her my frustration over understanding "how" my daughter thinks and how to help her with her homework and life in general. If you don't have ADD you can't understand why things that seem perfectly logical to you make no sense what so ever to the person with ADD. I sat down thinking I would flip through and read a few passages...I've been reading for two hours now and an hour ago got paper and pen to start taking notes. There are too many notes! I'm now ordering the book for myself. I have read many books on ADD and this is the first one I've found that gives clear detailed advice on ways to "teach" your child some impulse control, and help her improve her concentration and study skills...BEFORE jumping right to medication treatment.

Quite Theoretically Sound 20 April 2002
By L. Dann - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This 'manual' presents a technical and philosophical overview of the complex array of variables that factor into effective teaching of the ADHD child. The author has compassion as well as insight into the children, who often face rejection and failure. The co-occuring low self esteem can carry over a lifetime. A variety of methodologies specific to learning domains are very helpful for diagnostic purposes and lesson planning. As a principal and mental health administrator, I have this book well-placed on my shelf. I refer to it often and occasionally lend it to my staff who are searching for help with a specific child.

Glancing back at the chapters as I prepared this review, I was actually astounded at the sophisticated details embedded there. In particular I think the information that supports the "multi-sensory" approach is greatly needed. The amount of times we write "multi-sensory" activities just because it fits in an IEP is amazing. My own experience with teachers is that they basically have a very limited understanding of the neurological underpinings of sensory and perceptual limitations.

My only reservation about the book is that despite its layout, it actually is fairly theoretical. I think that when a teacher reaches for it, he or she may be looking for some more 'lesson planning' ideas and tend to gloss over the more comprehensive information. I definitely recommend the book for special education teachers who are genuinely interested in a more in-depth review, as well as for purposes of diagnostic and prescriptive planning. I also recommend it for administrators who are involved in staff development or individual supervision.
The only other concern I have is that despite the amount of information about the medication questions, it does not include enough about the tomes of research that is available to support augmenting behavioral programs with psychopharmacology. A teacher should check with his or her supervisor to gain access to this data so that they can respond to questions on this highly charged subject with sophisticated and thus helpful answers.

Keep it handy for quick reference! 12 Oct. 1999
By Linda Crawford - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I have used this book for years. It has many practical techniques that can be used with all students. I require all new teachers at our school to read outlined sections. I reread it myself every year to help me renew goals and revisit the methods. (We have an LD program and a traditional program, college prep.) Who wouldn't benefit from a multi-module approach!

GREAT Reference for School, or Real Life 30 July 2002
By "greatone222" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book made me wish that ALL reference books were written this clearly. Whether your looking to use this book to do a presentation in school, a teacher looking for help on teaching ADHD students, or have an ADHD child of your own, this is for you. It's a no non sense, straight forward guide to ADHD. It includes the causes, symptoms, treatment suggestions, and more. It even goes into specific strategies that teachers can use in the classroom.
The best part about it is that its broken down into detailed chapters and sections, making it easy for yout to find EXACTLY what your looking for. It's also written in VERY understandable terms. This is not a medical book, it's a for the average person. This book is an unbeleiveably well written guide to one of the most common learning disabilities of today. If your looking for a great reference, look no further, you've found the best.
