Reviews

The book includes practical ideas for school counselors to implement in working with students who have ADHD. This is the type of information that school counselors want most: practical ideas that can be immediately implemented in their own work. I found the book helpful in my own understanding of ADHD. -- J. Scott Glass, Associate Professor This book should be on every school counselor's desk. It provides a concise compilation of the most recent facts, theories, opinions, variables, best practices, and remaining questions about addressing the issue of ADHD in the school setting. One would need to have read dozens of other books, every year, for the past 10 years to have even minimal access to the information and wisdom imparted in this book. -- Gloria Avolio DePaul, School Counselor This is a text school counselors have been waiting for! It provides a strong review of the manifestations of ADHD and concrete examples of ways to strengthen our work with students and stakeholders impacted by ADHD. I will recommend it to my school counseling students. -- Kylie P. Dotson-Blake, Assistant Professor of Counselor and Adult Education
