About the Author:

Mary Anne Richey, M.S., is a parent of an adult son with ADHD and a Licensed School Psychologist with the Palm Beach School District. James Forgan is a licensed school psychologist and professor in South Florida. In his private practice he evaluates children for dyslexia; reading problems; dyscalculia (math problems); dysgraphia (writing problems); ADHD/ADD; processing problems; learning issues; and social-emotional disorders, such as anxiety, depression, and opposition. Dr. Forgan and his associates also offer services for helping families help children. Dr. Forgan understands learning differences from the parent and professional perspective. He can be reached at TerrificTeddy.com.

Review:

I know a lot about boys with ADHD. I have worked with hundreds of them, we raised one, and I was one. I found Raising Boys With ADHD to be filled with insights, information and information that would be extraordinarily useful for parents who are facing the daunting--but rewarding--job of guiding a child with ADHD through the shoals of boyhood.

The book offers practical advice and up-to-date information on this puzzling disorder. Beyond merely defining the problems, the authors provide solutions and strategies. This book will go a long way in enhancing your knowledge and parenting techniques. Read this book. Keep it close by. Refer to it. Reread it. Its contents will help you to better understand the needs of your "unhappy wanderer." --Richard D. Lavoie, The Motivation Breakthrough

Raising Boys with ADHD is a reasoned and reasonable, practical and inspirational guide for parents focused on preparing boys with ADHD to transition successfully into a happy, functional and emotionally healthy adult life. Forgan and Richey are experienced clinicians, deftly blending their knowledge of science and experience to create a practical, readable and useful guide for parents of boys with ADHD. This volume will be on my short list of books I recommend to parents of children with ADHD. --Dr. Sam Goldstein, Editor-in-Chief, Journal of Attention Disorders

The book is informational and action-oriented: terms are explained, and current research and treatment options are explored in language that parents can understand, use with their sons, and disseminate to others. --Publishers Weekly, March 19, 2012
