For a child, being labelled with ADD or ADHD can be a double-wounding. First, of course, there's the ADD itself, and the academic and/or social problems, which have probably plagued the child his or her entire life as a result of it. But on top of that, there's the often even more painful wounding of being told that he or she has a "disorder" and, compared to others, is "deficient." These are very strong words, and children take such things very seriously. They're extraordinarily good at living up (or down) to our expectations of them, and such labels can often be painful to wear.
In this book, Caroline Hensby and Bernard Braham give children an opportunity to reframe their ADD/ADHD in a less pathological light, to see themselves as having potential and strengths, and to hear the sound of hope for the future. It's empowering, enlightening, and altogether healing.
That's why this is such an important book. For your child, in fact, it may be the most important book on ADD in the world...
