Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Useful for addressing the existence of attention deficit disorder beyond the hyperactivity of childhood, this reassuring book frankly covers the realities and logistics of having ADD. It serves as a helpful guide to selecting and entering college and to succeeding there. Various professionals (physicians, psychologists, educators, and lawyers) and "real life" experts (college students and parents) describe the challenge of ADD and its impact on the college experience in short, lucid chapters. Throughout, the underlying message is that students should recognize the limitations that ADD presents and seek help in finding remedies for their particular problems. Individual sections address the manifestations of ADD, cover various treatments, outline college programs, consider learning accommodations that students might utilize, and review ADD students' legal rights. Good for students (still in high school or new to college), for parents (who are coping with the angst of an adolescent as well as an ADD student), and for high-school and college faculty and administrators in need of some straight talk about ADD. This guidebook is practical, realistic, optimistic, and reassuring for both teens and adults. Irene Wood
