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.
