Lovely Review by Fran Lewis for David’s ADHD

I received this lovely review for David’s ADHD from Fran Lewis

David’s ADHD


Davids ADHD

Author: Sherrill S Cannon

Illustrated by: Kalpart

Short attention span, easily distracted, careless mistakes in school, and appearing to forget or lose things. Difficulty sticking to tasks and longer tasks more difficult to complete. Hard to listen and carry out instructions. These are just some of the areas David has in our story learned how to overcome. David is bright and with the proper diagnosis and treatment, he should be able to succeed. Let’s start at the beginning. He has trouble sitting still in class and imagines what happens when he calls out, did get, or gets upset. The children in his class and school understood and realized from what I described what is ADHD. He could not see or process the best we do.

The author explains in detail that we have a camera that lives in our heads and gives us the ability to have bright pictures. Imagine looking at a camera and seeing the images unclear or out of focus. He could not connect with his eye or ear. His focusing lens was asleep in his brain. So how will he get it to wake up? How will he learn to remember the skills gr learned? What about self-control?

The author takes us back to when he was young to help readers understand why he could not focus and why he got upset. His parents did not know what to do. Tying his shoes, drawing pictures, and even sitting still created anger within him. Was he out of control? What about his resentment? Why did he feel isolated and not wanted by others? Look at the pictures to understand. What did his parents do?

Testing is a great way to learn what the issues are and when they understood Attention Deficit Disorder they could now focus on how to treat it and help David.

There are new meds and other ways. How do you wake up the sleepy link? How will this help him to think, concentrate, learn to read, grow and work in a group?

Would he need meds? What instructional methods should be in place?

The best way you will learn as the author shares the importance of lists. This helps him to keep a structured way of remembering tasks and more. It might include when to get up, get dressed or even clean his room and make his bed.

  • The author added more but you need to read it for yourself to better understand how the process works. Check out the smiles. Teachers, therapists, friends, family, and more plus learn about how a computer opened up more doors for his learning. How about homework, and time slots for each subject plus releasing energy, ground rules, rewards, and what about losing control how did he learn to handle it? What about friends and teachers in school? David learned to read, communicate, and used what he was taught, sharing soevusk gifts, if you want to know the rest read Davids’s ADHD and how he learned to control it. With illustrations that bring the story alive, the author focuses on a topic that every parent, child, educator, and therapist plus school officials need to understand. Meet David and his family and take the journey with them. Told in rhyme in a way younger children and older will understand the messages being conveyed and the lessons learned, in a way that will help everyone understand ADHD. So whether it’s medication, education, skills training, or counseling, there are many ways to teach young children and older how to focus and concentrate and know they will succeed.
