His teachers and therapists encourage using the computer for academic advancement, and to establish a pattern for study as well as for occasional recreation. David not only learns self-control and communication skills, but is able to fit into the classroom and make friends.
Once again social values are emphasized in the author’s latest illustrated children’s story, and classroom friends from previous books are featured. In fact, David has been part of the class for a long time!
“David’s ADHD is a timely topic for parents and children. A story in rhyme that demystifies ADHD. It explains a youngster’s behavior in terms of his inattentiveness and impulsivity and how it impacts those around him. A sensitive way of creating understanding for children with ADHD and their families.” – Dr. Valerie Allen, licensed school psychologist
“Very highly recommended for children ages 6-8, “David’s ADHD” is an effective, informative, and charmingly entertaining addition for any family, elementary school, or community library collection.” – Midwest Book Review
