The ADHD Empowerment Guide

James W. Forgan, Ph.D., and Mary Anne Richey, Authors

The ADHD Empowerment Guide is different from other parenting ADHD books because it helps parents identify and build upon their child’s strengths and natural talents in order to develop a specific plan to unlock their child’s potential. Parents are invited to complete two easy-to-follow questionnaires to identify their child’s strengths and natural abilities, as well as determine key characteristics in their child that research has shown to help children with ADHD succeed in life. These characteristics include emotional control, integrity, grit, resiliency, resourcefulness, organization, motivation, school fit, support systems, and productive use of technology. Using the practical strategies presented, strength-building activities, and the information learned from the questionnaires, parents can develop a success plan that will unlock their child’s potential and build a positive outlook on the journey of raising a child with ADHD. The authors, two professionals who have “been there and done that” with their own children with ADHD, illustrate their strategies and content by highlighting successful people with ADHD who excelled in various areas and share some of their success secrets to raising a successful child with ADHD.
