As a parent of a 17-year-old newly diagnosed with ADHD, I found this book very helpful. Not only did it offer encouragement and support, but it gave practical strategies teens could use for dealing with situations and activities that may be challenging.

As a mother who has struggled with ADHD ad now having a son with ADHD I struggle to find way to help him cope with the internal thoughts that never slow down or his ticks that get out of control when his medication doesn't work.

Grace Friedman has the ability to guide readers with love, positive energy and a reminder that you are more than you ADHD.

She gives guidance to teens as well as parents to help teens learn to cope with the disability or ability.
This book isn't just for teens, pare
I listened to the audiobook read by the authors.

Young adult is kind of a stretch, I was 100% not the target audience for this book.

My main compliment for this book is how it encourages and coaches teenagers to have honest and meaningful communication with their parents. The authors lay out strategies in a clear an unpatronizing way. Also, the book is easily digestible and having it be both fast paced and available as an audiobook makes its insights more accessible than those buried in thicker t

I have been conflicted by this diagnosis. I'm guessing this book will be useful to someone with the diagnosis... It sort of makes a strong case for it, but too often, I've seen normal healthy, mostly males, stuck on meds cause they are noral active little boys and sitting at a desk being jabbered at for hours on ends would drive anyone crazy. I don't have ADHA and I start fidgeting after 25 minutes in a meeting.... understand most people outgrow it.... I've also heard from people who use it to e ...more

I love the message to teens and young adults (and all of us) that those with ADHD don't need to feel alone and isolated. The book is loaded with very practical ways to succeed. The biggest step is knowing that's what you're dealing with. Then it can be worked. ...more

Thanks for this. Straightforward story telling style that was easy to digest with good information without overwhelming and actionable plans of things I can immediately implement for me and my daughter.

Interesting to peak inside the brain and thought process of a teenager and how she coped with her ADHD diagnosis and turn her weaknesses into strengths with a deep dive into what systems would work for her.

Amazing resource and tips for anyone living with ADHD. Even as an adult living with it I felt i could apply many of these tips and concepts to my everyday work life as well. I wish i had this resource growing up. Definitely recommend.

Nothing new AND while it sounds like the steps are common sense, they just wouldn't work JMHO. ...more

I read through this book in an evening, and all I can say is this - I wish this book has been around when I was a teen and young adult struggling with my ADHD.

Reading from a unique perspective, as an adult with an ADHD diagnosis who teaches teens and preteens, some of whom have the same diagnosis, I greatly appreciated this workbook. Grace Friedman approaches the topic with a genuine mix of expertise, experience, empathy, and a no-nonsense tone. She begins the book by affirming that you are MOR
