Recommended Reading

In my search for knowledge about ADHD and LD I have checked out, borrowed and purchased numerous books on the subject. My husband is not a reader, so I made him "Cliff Notes" for each book I read. The following is a list of books that I've completed thus far. If you'd like to have a copy of the "notes" just email me and I'll be happy to forward them to you...

  • ADHD Handbook for Families, Paul L. Weingartner
  • Attention, Please! , Edna Copeland & Valerie Love
