ADD/ADHD Online Information
Another book for young people by Kathleen. This is again wonderfully written and spot on target for the age group it is intended for. The author talks about ADD & LD and the problems, which can be encountered when the young person reaches college age. It explains procedures in plain language and talks about how the young person can work with others to obtain the accommodations they need to have in place to enable them to successfully succeed in college. Kathleen talks about skills needed to help with time management, peer relationships and relationships with the professionals the young person will come into contact with. Kathleen also encourages the concept of self worth, which is hard for these students.
A brilliant book especially for the US reader, the only problem is that in the UK our students are not covered by as many legal requirements, which enable them to receive the specific help they need. Having said that this is ideal for UK readers as it will enable them to be advocates for services to be provided as it gives the ideas as to what to ask for to be in place to help the young person. This book encourages the UK reader to be more assertive in asking for considerations and hopefully this will inspire us to get more services provided in the future.
