Book review – a very impressive and serious guide to ADHD in education

In “How to Reach and Teach Children with ADD/ADHD : Practical Techniques, Strategies and Interventions”, Sandra Rief has produced a major resource for teachers, school professionals, parents and clinicians to help children with ADHD succeed in school, home and life. And it’s both the largest and heaviest book on ADHD that I own!

It has many real-life case studies, interviews, and student intervention plans and contains best teaching practices and countless strategies for enhancing classroom performance. A truly great resource with proven suggestions for engaging attention, keeping students on-task, preventing behavioural problems, differentiating learning styles and building partnerships with parents.

The book is grounded in the latest science of ADHD and filled with exceptionally detailed hands-on advice. Rief has written a very well organized and readable (though massive) book with kind, wise and practical advice to help ADHD students reach their full potential.
