"This book is a game changer! Who knew I was unintentionally contributing to the problem. After I began implementing what I'll just call "the curious approach," almost immediately I got the sense that my son felt we were teammates striving for the same goals. My new perspective and acceptance stripped away his defensiveness and defiance. Small changes in me are making a world of a difference for my son. I’m so grateful I found this book.” ~ Natalie Z, NYC

“The ADHD In Reality e-Book is the best, research-based, but “readable” piece of information. It gives a solid definition of what Executive Function is and how it truly impacts life functions everyday. This ebook is the best resource for an easy to read, easy to understand, practical tool explaining what Executive Function is and initial options! Most importantly---it offers HOPE!” ~ Tami B, FL

"A big ‘Thank you!’ to you both for what you do. I was able to stay calm and let my teenage son steer his own course to finish up his freshman year in high school. We got his final grades today and the boy rocked it. All A’s and B’s. He pulled a B in Biology, which came up from an F at one point in the semester. He was so excited, and I was so happy to celebrate his achievement with him. The big thing that I have learned is guiding him to find confidence in himself — and this is what you both have helped me with.” ~ Marian S., GA
