About this title


After the death of her teenage son Ben, author Trudy Carlson compares his difficulty with ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder) with her own struggle with dyslexia. The difference between success in overcoming their disabilities is explored in terms of the nature of the two problems and the way each affects the life of the individual. Generic low-cost/no-cost programs helpful for a wide range of difficulties faced by today's elementary school-aged children are described. The correlation between ADHD, anxiety disorders, and suicide is discussed.

From the Back Cover:

Through the story of her personal experiences with two of the most common learning disabilities: (attention deficit and her own dyslexia) the author describes what it is like to cope with these problems.

Low cost and no cost strategies for:

Parents who want to understand their child, who are looking for ways to meet their child's needs, and who need to develop self-help strategies if they are to cope with a child with a learning problem.

Teachers wanting effective programs for pupils with learning problems within the normal routine of the classroom. Peer support is emphasized rather than an over-reliance on the already busy teacher.

Health Care Professionals who want to diagnose the emotional problems frequently associated with ADHD (difficulty concentrating, impulsivity and overactivity) and dyslexia (difficulty learning to read, and spell). Which factors determine if children will successfully cope with their conditions?

"Your son's death is not in vain as your book may reach thousands of teachers." Dr. Elisabeth Kubler-Ross Author of Death and Dying, Children and Death

"An excellent professional review of the treatment, biology, and the feelings of children with learning disabilities. It contains great ideas for clinicians, parents, and teachers of young people with ADHD." Dr. Jerome Kwako, Fellow American Academy of pediatrics, Director, ADHD Clinic, Miller Dwan Hospital; Director, Comprehensive Clinic for Children with Handicaps.

Trudy Carlson, MS, operates small health care facilities for developmentally disabled persons. She taught university classes in child, adolescent and developmental psychology; the psychology of the exceptional child, personality and mental hygiene, and other courses.

This book contains easy-to-read scientific information about ADHD, as well as simple ways to make life more manageable for everyone. This author brings common sense to a complex problem.
