This simple, illustrated book tells us about ADHD from the main character, Ben's perspective.
Ben has ADHD. Sometimes he feels “fidgety” and has trouble concentrating but he has a lot of hobbies and loves to play football. "Can I tell you about ADHD?" tells friends, family and professionals what it is like to have this diagnosis from Ben’s point of view so that they can help and understand. He reminds us that ‘Although I have ADHD, I’m just like any other child.”
Fun illustrations and child-friendly language make this an engaging book for children which also serves as a comprehensive guide for parents and professionals. Covering everything from “talking a lot” to “safety at the roadside” and the history of ADHD, "Can I tell you about ADHD?" paints an entertaining picture of what many children experience. It concludes with practical tips on how friends, parents and teachers can best support children with ADHD.
This illustrated book is full of useful information and will be an ideal introduction for young people, aged 7 upwards.
