About Andrew’s Awesome Adventures with His ADHD Brain:
Change what you think you know about ADHD.
Meet Andrew, a boy with inattentive-type ADHD, who is trying to survive life and middle school with a brain that feels like “an overstuffed garbage can the lid doesn’t stay on, and stuff is falling out all over the floor”. Kids with ADHD will relate to Andrew’s daily struggles like remembering to turn in homework, staying organized, and making friends, while learning practical strategies to help them manage their own ADHD. See how Andrew’s creativity, fearlessness and hyperfocus make him a superhero, all thanks to his ADHD.
Mom and neuroscientist, Dr. Wilcox, shares her challenging and rewarding journey raising an ADHD son. She discusses the science behind ADHD from someone in the trenches learning to work with her son’s ADHD brain. Dr. Wilcox provides insights into ADHD behaviors and suggests highly pragmatic and successfully implemented strategies for children with the inattentive subtype of ADHD, their parents, educators, and others who work with ADHD children.
This two-part award-winning book is a must read for kids with ADHD and their parents.
