“Filled with information, activities, skills, and insights for kids, this book puts some fun into coping with the struggles that accompany ADHD. I will be recommending this book to parents and kids who are trying to overcome the obstacles of ADHD.”―Dr. Robert Leahy, Author of The Worry Cure
“Kids with ADHD, along with their parents, teachers, and counselors, will find much to like and learn from in this valuable (and fun!) book filled with practical information, games, and exercises. Among its best features: accessible tools for self-understanding, helping kids to see themselves in a new, positive light―along with ways to work on making their lives easier and more rewarding. The "strengths-based," uplifting approach builds on solid research that not only counteracts the stigma of "having a problem" but also shows a clear path forward.”―Daniel Keating, Author of Born Anxious: The Lifelong Impact of Early Life Adversity―and How to Break the Cycle, and Professor of Psychology, University of Michigan
“As a learning disability specialist, I have seen dozens of books on the topic of ADHD, but I now have found the one that I know myself and my team of experts will all use.

“It took me two decades to learn how to turn the challenge of my childhood ADHD into my greatest strength. Through engaging games and powerful mindfulness practices, Kelli helps children learn self-regulation while having fun. Children learn both to view their condition in a positive light as well as effective organizational skills. I only wish your workbook was available when I was a child.”―Pejman Katiraei, DO, Fellow of the American Board of Pediatrics and Founder of Wholistic Kids and Families
“I always advise starting treatment with behavioral interventions. Some parents struggle to find the right book to help them develop a behavioral parenting plan, but now they have the perfect book! Thriving with ADHD makes the concepts clear, makes planning easy and fun, and is a great starting point for any parent working on a behavioral approach to helping their child.”―Keith Seibert, MD Pediatrician
“A must for any child in your life facing an ADHD diagnosis. The activities in this book are essential for any parent, therapist, or educator interested in helping children learn skills to help them thrive with ADHD.”―Katherine Woodward Thomas, NY Times Bestselling Author of Conscious Uncoupling: 5 Steps to Living Happily Even After
“Kelli transforms the ever-dreaded diagnosis of ADHD into a “glass half-full” rather than a “glass half-empty” experience by demonstrating the positive aspects of the condition. She teaches 60 self-help activities, easily applicable in all areas of a child’s life. Kelli brings a wealth of personal and professional experience to the table with a friendly and readable style. Thank you, Kelli, for providing this much-needed toolbox for kids!”―Debra Mandel, Ph.D., Psychologist, Author, and TV/Radio Personality

We finished this book in just a few days! She could not put it down, we loved it!
I was a little concerned that it was too advanced for my child when we first started it. Some of the paragraphs are lengthy and its hard enough to hold an ADHD child's attention. But I was wrong. While she may skim through a longer paragraph here and there, I remind her it's important to get all the information so we can better understand. She hesitates then goes back and reads it or allows me to read it aloud. She is really benefiting from this book! She looks forward to doing it every night in her bed with me. And its not too advanced for her. (She is 8.) We are flying through it! Its really that interesting to her.
