Meet Ben - a young boy with ADHD. Ben invites readers to learn about ADHD from his perspective. He helps children understand what it means to have ADHD and describes what it is and how it feels. Ben explains how he was diagnosed and what he has learnt about ways to relieve his ADHD symptoms, and how friends and adults can help at home and school.
This illustrated book is full of useful information and will be an ideal introduction for young people, aged 7 upwards, as well as parents, friends, teachers and professionals working with children with ADHD. It is also an excellent starting point for family and classroom discussions.

In The Press
This book is a perfect choice for every child diagnosed with ADHD and lends a voice to children with ADHD who are unable to express themselves. Written in an engaging and conversational style, the book provides a window for parents and professionals to see how children with ADHD feel rather than how other's perceive them. I highly recommend this book for children and parents, as well as professionals working with children who have ADHD.
