As ADHD becomes better understood, many resources have become available. The most succinct, accurate, and effective resources that Dr. Weller has used include:
- www.kolbe.com. This website has evaluations that folks with ADHD (children and adults) have found very helpful. Evaluations clarify each person’s unique modus operandi in dealing with the world. It is a strength-based model that can help families better understand how to make the most of ADHD.
- “Driven to Distraction: Recognizing and Coping with Attention Deficit Disorder from Childhood Through Adulthood,” by Dr. Edward Hallowell. Dr. Hallowell is a national expert in ADHD (he calls it ADD) and his books are easy-to-read, strength-based, and practical. They suggest cutting edge and real world strategies to manage ADHD.
- “Overcoming ADHD: Helping your child become calm, engaged, and focused—without a pill,” by Stanley Greenspan. This book is a must-have for parents of children with ADHD. Even if children are on medications, it offers lifestyle and relationship suggestions to optimize the ADHD family experience.
Great site over here, with good info on a variety of topics. I share your significant interest in ADHD and am chagrined at the frequent lack of insight regarding the often frivolous use of stimulant medications without clear targets or treatment strategies. As a child psychiatrist with more than 40 years of seeing kids with ADHD and lecturing nationally from LA to NYC I have seen the good the bad and the ugly – and made some “learning opportunities” for myself as well!
If your crew might be interested in either
1. a Complimentary Report on “Predictable Solutions for the 10 Biggest Problems with ADHD Meds” or
2. my new book: “ADHD Medication Rules: Paying Attention To the Meds For Paying Attention” they can find details at
Hope this helps! Look forward to meeting one day!
Hi Jodi,I have been coaching a few young peolpe with ADHD. Currently, together with my coachee a young man with ADHD (18 yrs old), we will be starting a youth support group for children and youths with AD/HD.I have been hearing from quite a few parents sharing about their children with ADHD. They are helpless to manage them esp. some of these kids are showing violent behaviours towards them. Any suggestion for them?Thanks.VincentSingapore
