I say "new" because, after much feedback and other signs at home and in school, we have determined (after a thourough neuropsych evaluation and testing) that our son is moderately ADHD of the combined type.
I can't express enough how excited I was to find that Thom, a person I have admired for his shows, offers such great expertise and guidance in this area.
It has been a roller coaster of wondering why some things are so difficult for him, why we were falling into some patterns of frustration and repetative tough times; and, also, why our son shines so strongly in some areas (creativity, courage, leadership, high math skills) while being "weaker" in others (will to read, spelling drills, organization).
Finding our way to Thom's books and info on this subject have filled us with excitment and turned our worry and fear into eagerness to learn how strong our son can be while finding the great strengths in this trait he has. Looking forward to the journey and so grateful such a great mind and nice man like Thom is an authority on this subject. Looking forward......
