Making the System Work for Your Child with ADHD Paperback / softback
Part of the Making the System Work for Your Child series
There's lots of help out there for kids with ADHD, but getting it isn't always easy.
Where can you turn when you've mastered the basics and "doing everything right" isn't enough--the insurer denies your claims, parent-teacher meetings get tense, or those motivating star charts no longer encourage good behavior?
Dr. Peter Jensen has spent years generating ways to make the healthcare and education systems work--as the father of a son with ADHD and as a scientific expert and dedicated parent advocate.
No one knows more about managing the complexities of the disorder and the daily hurdles it raises.
Now Dr. Jensen pools his own experiences with those of over 80 other parents to help you troubleshoot the system without reinventing the wheel.
From breaking through bureaucratic bottlenecks at school to advocating for your child's healthcare needs, this straightforward, compassionate guide is exactly the resource you've been looking for.
