"A brilliant, practical compendium of tools, resources, ideas and techniques to help children who have ADHD without using medication. Well-researched and clearly written, this book is a gem!"
Edward Hallowell, MD, author, psychiatrist and international expert on ADHD
"Medication which should be a last resort for kids with ADHD, has become the first and often the only offered treatment. This speaks to the crucial importance of Debra Burdick's latest book, ADHD: Non-Medication Treatments and Skills for Children and Teens. The book offers 162 techniques, tips, activities and resources that can be used instead of medication to manage and moderate the worst ADHD symptoms. I highly recommend this book for parents, either dealing with a new ADHD diagnosis in a child or for those who wish to try another option other than medication."
Dale Archer, MD, psychiatrist and NY Times bestselling author of Better Than Normal and The ADHD Advantage
"Debra Burdick did it again! Following the success of her mindfulness book for kids and teens, she offers an array of non-medication treatment skills for ADHD. Anyone working with children and teens will find this a treasure chest of practical, hands-on, effective and engaging tools and activities that are easy for the clinician to use. Tips for identifying and diagnosing ADHD, treatment options, nutrition suggestions, valuable tools for social, organizational and mindfulness skills, along with tips for parents makes this book a one-stop shop for the practitioner's ADHD toolbox. An invaluable go-to resource and a true gold mine!"
Judith Belmont, MS, author of the T.I.P.S. and Tools for the Therapeutic Toolbox Series
"Burdick provides a very accessible reading style and countless well thought-out strategies. This book covers a wide range of approaches to help these children, their teachers and parents, become more successful in managing ADHD. This is a great reference for anyone working with children or teens with ADHD."
Roger deBeus, PhD, Clinical Trial Principal Investigator, Neurofeedback for ADHD
"An amazingly comprehensive book geared to mental health professionals, parents, teachers and children of ADHD from a holistic approach. Readers who are seeking a non-medication approach to ADHD have come to the best source! With over 162 tools, techniques, tips, activities, resources and worksheets, it is a perfect 'one-stop' book.
As a parent of a child with ADD, now an adult, I wish this book was available years ago! But as a professional working with children and teens, it is invaluable now. ADHD: Non-Medication Treatments & Skills for Children and Teens is definitely a must-have book for one's professional or personal library."
