"At the beginning, I thought I was the only one with this problem. But my doctor told me that about 1 in 20 kids suffer from AD/HD. That means that there is probably at least one child per class in my school who has it. That means that lots of people have the same problem as I do and can find solutions that work for them.”
Filled with instructive information and effective hints, the imaginary journal of Tom will help young people, parents, and education and psychology professionals overcome Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder. Funny and imaginative, My Brain Needs Glasses is an indispensable book to better understand the reality of living with AD/HD, which is not imaginary at all!
A psychiatrist and mother of four beautiful boys (who participated in all stages of the preparation of this book), Annick Vincent developed her expertise working with adults affected by Mood Disorders and/or Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder. She is actively involved in transmitting knowledge concerning attention disorders to her physician colleagues, health professionals and the general public. She was invited to join the executive board of the Canadian AD/HD Resource Alliance in 2006. As a resident of French-speaking Quebec, Dr Vincent first published this book in French. Both kids and their parents loved the book and found it so useful that it was decided to make this tool available in English as well.
