Focus on Your Strengths and Overcome ADHD
Symptoms of attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder, or ADHD, can strike at any time-during class, when you're listening to a friend's story, while doing homework, and did we mention during class? You might find it difficult to pay attention and sit still when your impulses are constantly tempting you to do the opposite. InThe ADHD Workbook for Teens, you'll learn simple skills you can use to confidently handle school, make and keep friends, and organize and finish every project you start.
