10 Books to Help Parents and Kids Living with ADHD

I love books and learning how to make my life better by reading.  This process is called ‘bibliotherapy’ and a few years back I wrote a book called, “Teaching Problem Solving Using Children’s Literature.”  It teaches teachers how to use popular children’s books in the classroom to teach problem solving skills.  Most recently I wrote a book for parents about parenting boys with ADHD and it’s the first book listed below.  I took my experiences raising my son with ADHD, partnered with another parent that raised a boy with ADHD and our book is helping other parents.

These are 10 great books that may help you in your journey of raising a child with ADHD.
