Helping Children Gain Self-Confidence, Social Skills, and Self-Control


kids with attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) want to manage their symptoms in order to get along better with others, build confidence, and succeed in school, but most don’t have the skills they need to get their impulsive behavior under control. The ADHD Workbook for Kids offers a simple way to help children with ADHD learn these critical skills in just ten minutes a day.

This workbook includes more than forty activities for kids developed by child psychologist Lawrence Shapiro that can help your child with ADHD handle everyday tasks, make friends, and build self-esteem while he or she learns to overcome the most challenging aspects of the disorder. Alone or with your help, your child can complete one ten-minute activity each day to learn how to make good decisions and discover easy techniques for staying focused when it’s time to pay attention.

I am currently using this workbook in my line of business working with children with ADHD and ODD and the exercises are very helpful and rewarding. I see a markedly difference in the children and they look forward in doing more than one exercise at a time. I recommend this book to parents and/or teachers or educators who are looking for help in learning how to work with these special children!!!

We have found this workbook to have a great variety of topics that are helping our son with many of his area’s of need. When he has had a difficult day, we look through the topics, find one that seems most appropriate and work though that section of the workbook together. It has helped him focus on the topics, think through issues, and has helped us discover some of the things that he is thinking and feeling but had not been able to express.

This book has some good activities to help children with ADHD master key skills, but many of the activities are “paper and pencil” and therefore not particularly engaging. Other books on this topic that I recommend
