Editorial Reviews

Review

"Do you feel stymied by your child's failure to live up to his or her potential? Have you run out of ideas about how to handle the situation? Look no further--this fascinating and readable book is packed full of useful ideas that will help you understand what the problem is and how you can help. It presents practical and proven techniques based on rigorous scientific research."

-- "Peter Farrell, PhD, University of Manchester (UK); past president, International School Psychology Association"

"Groundbreaking...Compassionate and parent friendly...Dawson and Guare's personal anecdotes lend immediacy...Smart but Scattered is comprehensive, accessible, and hopeful...Dawson and Guare's work should be considered essential."

-- "Library Journal"

"Susan Ericksen provides a clear, sympathetic reading."

-- "Library Journal (audio review)"

"This brilliant book is by far the best on the topic that I have read to date."

-- "Russell A. Barkley, PhD, ABPP, author of Taking Charge of ADHD"

"While Susan Ericksen's distinct and assertive enunciation promotes respect for these ideas, her warmth also makes them sound inviting. Her steady engagement with both her listeners and this well-written guide is a comforting support for the authors' message: Poor performance is not a disease but the result of substandard mental habits that any child can improve with sensitive, targeted interventions."

-- "AudioFile"

Dawson and Guare's work should be considered essential.-- "Library Journal Starred Review" --This text refers to the audioCD edition.
