By Lara Honos-Webb
As a parent, you already know that your child has many gifts. What you may not know is that the symptoms related to attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) – the very qualities that lead him or her to act out and distract others – may be among them.
This second edition includes compelling new research indicating that the impulses that lead your child to act exuberantly may correspond with unusual levels of creativity and a heightened capacity for insight into the feelings and emotions of others. Could it be that ADHD is not a hindrance, but an asset in our fast-paced digital age?
ADHD expert Lara Honos-Webb presents the evidence for this revolutionary concept and explains how you can help your child develop control over inattentive, hyperactive behavior and enhance the five gifts of ADHD:
- attunement to nature
- interpersonal intuition
- energetic enthusiasm
- emotional sensitivity
Filled with easy skill-building activities you and your child can do together, this book will help your child transform problematic symptoms into strengths, then build the self-esteem they need to let those gifts shine.
