An invaluable resource! "ADHD & The Focused Mind" is the most helpful and resourceful handbook I have read on ADHD. Drs. Cheyette wrote this book with much care and research and the content applies to children and teenagers. The tips on doing homework, organization and minimizing electronic distractions are invaluable. Thank you for informing the reader of specific apps that can be used to block specific websites temporarily while your child is using the computer. Also good advice, is the S.M.A.R.T. strategy for setting goals and reminding your child what it is that they ultimately want to achieve. This book has many resolutions to ADHD related issues & will be a permanent fixture on my bookshelf. Thank you!
Martial arts and ADHD, are they connected? Yes, they are connected in that the techniques of discipline and focus are helpful to individuals with ADHD. This book has a local author in Peter Johnson, a 7th degree black belt holder in Karate and owner of a Karate school in San Bruno. He uses his coaching skills with children with special needs in his classes. The other two authors are a pediatric neurologist and a psychiatrist, both experts in ADHD. The chapters progress as a teacher would plan his classes. We learn about ADHD, plan and set goals to succeed. The person with ADHD learns about himself and trains to focus with self-discipline and goes on to be a part of a team and accepts defeat as temporary. We learn how to choose a “coach” to work with our child and consider the possibility of using medication as a tool. It is a book that is well-organized and very easy to use. It has a Contents Page, Conclusion, Resources, Homework Log, References, Authors and Alphabetical Index.
