Summary

In The ADDed Dimension, Kate Kelly, Peggy Ramundo, and D. Steven Ledingham offer insight -- with wise, clear eyes and well-developed senses of humor -- into every facet of the ADD experience, from issues of work, parenting, and relationships to those of organizational skills and stress. ADDers know enough about the "disadvantages" of ADD, and this is much more than just a guide to solving problems. At its heart, its aim is self-realization, the feeling of standing, feet firmly planted, on the common ground all ADDers walk. Along the way, it celebrates the good news about ADD: the fact that "different" doesn't mean "worse," and more often might mean "better," especially when energy, creativity, and humor are concerned.

What to do after you or your loved one has come to terms with ADD, but need help at times in keeping perspective, in relating the disorder to everyday life issues and experiences? Now, with The ADDed Dimension, there's a single book that can help.
