Book Review | Empowering Youth with ADHD
Author: Jodi Sleeper-Triplett
I wanted to read this book because I am raising a son with ADHD and I think it is important to educate myself on any and all techniques and opinions being offered to offer him the best life possible. I liked the “Empowering” idea, because I don’t believe that ADHD has to be a negative in his life and he has a lot of great qualities that are in part due to having ADHD.
This book focuses on teenagers and young adults, rather than children, so a lot of the information does not apply to us right now, but I still think it is valuable and we will revisit it in the future. The book talks about focuses on the individual rather than the disorder, which I think is very important, and the book provides scenarios and examples of how to deal with them. It provides step by step methods for setting goals and following a plan to deal with having ADHD, get organized, have a positive social life and feel empowered in general. The book itself is a little technical in parts and isn’t an easy read, but I think it’s a valuable book and it is full of great information.
