I was diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADD/ADHD) at eight years old. My parents searched to find out why I was different from other so-called normal children. Many counselors had said it was due to bad parenting practices, but they had a well-behaved daughter, therefore there had to be another reason. Many parents will relate to my troublesome childhood. I went to six schools, could not read until eleven, failed grades, was suspended many times and even expelled, yet passed Year 12 and finally went to university. My incredible turnaround was due to the strategies and techniques I developed over time, which are discussed in this book.The average parent of an ADD child does not easily understand most medical books. My book is written in an informal style, trying to explain in simple language how an ADD person sees things, thinks, and why we do not act in so-called normal ways.
