By Social Worker - Published on

I absolutely love this book. I use it frequently in my practice with kids who struggle with ADHD and it is amazing in helping to teach kids skills and techniques in self monitoring and managing their symptoms. I would highly recommend this book to anyone, especially those who work with kids!

5.0 out of 5 stars Indispensible Resource For Those Dealing with AD(H)D Student 8 April 2000
By Sharon McGovern Wolbert - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book is an invaluable aide for parents, educators, and professionals dealing with the challenges faced by AD(H)D students in school. It is a book that can be given directly to students as well. Written in a clear, visually appealing format, it presents worksheets and quick exercises that guide the late grade school, middle school or high school student to an understanding of how this disorder affects their ability to learn. It provides information such as how to choose and adopt various study techniques that will help children with AD(H)D become successful students. It coaches students in using active study techniques to remember what they read, or to develop written reports. Students are not resistant to using the concepts because of how they are presented and is a book that has application to non ADHD students as well. I highly recommend this workbook and have found it much more much more useful that the "Putting on the Brakes" book by the same authors. Of all the self help books I have lent out to people, this is one that people use so much they forget to return it! I just keep buying more copies because I don't want to be without the book.

4.0 out of 5 stars It makes sense to my students! 24 Mar. 2000
By Emma C. Fernandez W., M.Ed. - Published on
Format: Paperback
"Putting on the Break" has helped several of my students/clients understand what is really happening when they can not stop. One student's mom said, "This is the first time I see Laura interested in a book, any book. She explained why she has trouble paying attention like a pro. Thanks." The book gives the children a perspective they can relate to. Adults can be too wordy, the books helps them "see" and "feel" about ADHD. Thanks for making the book available in Spanish. We need more for the Spanish- speaking population.

My 6 yr old loves this book. It has so many great worksheets. And it grows with your child. It has stuff for him now at 6 and stuff for the future like how to take notes in school, how to study, how better to listen in class for a child w/ ADHD this is so fantastic! And it's all written at their level! GREAT BOOK!
