Get the real inside scoop on thriving as a teen with attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Drawing on her own experiences living with the disorder, college student Grace Friedman—along with pediatric neurologist Sarah Cheyette—offers valuable tips and tricks to help you face the unique challenges of ADHD.

If you’re a teen with ADHD, you care about academic and social success just as much as your peers do, but you may also experience difficulties keeping up in school and maintaining good relationships with friends and family. In addition, you probably find it challenging to stay organized, articulate your struggles to others, and cope with overwhelming pressure—especially as college approaches. This workbook will give you solid skills for addressing the challenges of ADHD so you canlive up to your true potential.

In Winning with ADHD, you’ll learn powerful and proven-effective cognitive behavioral strategies for coping with overwhelm, staying organized, tackling assignments, preparing for exams, dealing with emotions, communicating effectively with adults, and maintaining strong friendships. You’ll also find valuable information about ADHD medication, how your brain works, as well as self-advocacy skills to help you get ahead in high school, college, and beyond.

As a teen with ADHD, you may face many unique challenges. This workbook will give you everything you need to get one step ahead of your ADHD and thrive in all aspects of life.

About the Authors:

Grace Friedman was diagnosed with attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) at 12 years old and has experienced all the life-challenging effects it presents. Grace founded the ADDYTeen community and website, www.addyteen.com, which is visited by people around the world daily. She is a blogger at Huffington Post, and at 16 wrote a guide for teens called Embracing Your ADHD, which has been downloaded by thousands from her website. Now 21, she is studying psychology at the University of Puget Sound with the goal of becoming a therapist, and mentors others with ADHD. Now thriving with ADHD, Grace brings a spirit of generosity and purposefulness to everything she does.

Sarah Cheyette, MD, graduated from Princeton University and then UCLA Medical School. She did a fellowship in pediatric neurology and has been in private practice since then. She treats kids and young adults with ADHD, not just with medication but also with non-medication strategies such as those she outlined in her book, ADHD and the Focused Mind. She brings a powerful professional perspective on the benefits and limitations of ADHD medication and the many behavioral adaptations young people with ADHD must embrace to thrive with their condition. She and her husband have 4 kids and live in the San Francisco Bay Area.
