ADHD Resources for Families
From Chris Zeigler Dendy and Alex Zeigler
All the books and videos that we have created were produced for a specific reason, not simply just to have products to sell. Typically these were materials that our family so desperately needed but were not available during the challenging teenage years. For example, when I wrote Teenagers with ADD and ADHD in 1995, there were no books on teens--they were all written on younger children. Then in 2000 we published Teaching Teens with ADD and ADHD for both teachers and parents. The second edition with expanded chapters on executive function was released in Spring of 2011. Until Alex and I wrote A Bird's Eye View of Life with ADD and ADHDin 2003, there were no fun, interesting, yet scientifically accurate books for teens to read. Now in 2011, our video, Real Life ADHD! Part I is one of the first produced specifically for children and teens with the young people themselves in leading roles. Hopefully Part II will be available by 2014.
Best of luck from our family to yours!
These products are our family's gifts to you in hopes that they will help you cope successfully with these stressful years--we hope we can help your family avoid some of the pitfalls we experienced.
