Do you want to provide your child more information about ADHD that is written for them. Below are a few of the books that I have found useful. I recommend that parents read these books first before passing them on to their child to make sure it is a good fit for them. I have found that when a child who has ADHD, but is not hyperactive, some of the messages about hyperactivity can be confusing. You know your child best so you are in the best position to make that decision.
