To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Excellent book. I bought it after watching Dr Barkley present a webinar and as a parent of a newly diagnosed son, it helped me gain more perspective on how to support him than anything else I have read.
While the book seems to understand the traits of ADHD, this doesn’t seem to translate into the given strategies. It’s also really negative and very outdated on the abilities and the future of someone with ADHD. Also time outs do not work for children, or for children with ADHD - if there is no link between the behaviour and consequence then it is a un-relatable punishment. This illogical approach is even less appropriate for children with ADHD. All in all, pretty disappointed - I’ll stick with Delivered from Distraction.
