The Gift of ADHD 2nd Edition - Lara Honos-Webb
The Gift of ADHD revolutionized the way parents understood their children's attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and offered new hope to children and adults alike struggling with ADHD symptoms. That book suggested that many of the traits common among kids with ADHD are expressions of deeper gifts: a powerful imagination, a great capacity for insight, and unusual intuition, to name a few.
Now in its second edition, The Gift of ADHD reviews the remarkable new ADHD research that increasingly supports author Lara Honos-Webb's view that ADHD is a gift rather than a hindrance. The new edition explains why ADHD is an asset in the digital age and shows readers how they can help their children to enhance these gifts by channeling ADHD-related traits into productive outlets. It includes exercises for helping parents cope with feelings of failure they may be experiencing and offers advice for navigating education and mental health systems to their children's advantage.
