A child-friendly guide that strips away the stigmas, myths, and misconceptions associated with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
Different Thinkers: ADHD uses simple language and complementary illustrations to explain how the human brain develops, what it means to have ADHD, how the condition affects emotions and behaviors, and what kids can do to handle its challenges while building on their individual strengths.
Written for elementary-age children and their families, the book features three vignettes of children with an ADHD diagnosis. Each vignette highlights various symptoms of the disorder and the different ways those symptoms can shape a child’s behaviors and relationships at home and in school. In addition, a range of practical strategies for managing and minimizing ADHD are explained.
Thought-provoking prompts are included throughout the text to help young readers better understand their diagnosis, explore what it means to be a different thinker, and ease any insecurities, fears, or negative feelings they might have.
An empowering read that gives young children the information and facts they need to understand their own ADHD diagnosis, deal with its challenges, and realize their strengths, interests, and abilities are what define them, not ADHD.
This is the first title in the Different Thinkers series created to guide, support, and help neurodivergent children and their families successfully reach their life goals.
A Note From the Publisher
Illustrated by Jennifer Bell-Cordero
"Finally! A book that explains ADHD to the elementary school set in a super-relatable and superreadable format. Different Thinkers: ADHD is filled with real-life examples that draw the reader in as well as strategies and conversation starters for parents and educators to use. The authors, Drs. Fredriksen and Rothman, pepper the book with reminders that children with ADHD are not flawed nor alone, have both strengths and challenges, and, most importantly, that different thinkers help move the world forward!"
