Empower ADHD Kids
ADHD is the most common behavior disorder that affects children ages 5-18, and I suspect it is also the most understood. Struggling to understand the behavior and emotions directly impacts parents, teachers, friends and especially the suffering child. Unfortunately for the child, the need to fit in' a school setting or other social group creates untold anxiety and feelings of inadequacy, which lead to a poor self-esteem and acting out behaviors in the teen years.
As parents and teachers, we want to come alongside our young people and help them recognize that yes, they are different than other children but it does not have to have a negative impact on their lives. Written to support teachers and parents, this book provides a variety of activities to help children with ADHD appreciate the positive traits of ADHD, their unique positive character traits, and master social skills. Chapters include Understanding ADHD, Learning despite ADHD, Coping in Relationships and Celebrating ADHD, with a look at successful adults with ADHD. Includes a variety of activities many which require at least one more participant. Pre-and Post-Test is included, along with a completion certificate. Reproducible for classroom/family use. Answer Key in back. SC. 64 pgs. ~ Deanne
