Thank you for this book! It saved my little girl... 12. Oktober 2009
Von Maria Castillo - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
My daughter was diagnosed with ADHD in spring earlier this year. Although she has excelled after being diagnosed and put on medication, she had an emotional battle she was fighting alone. She broke down one night in sobs saying how she feels different than other girls and how terrible she feels having something "wrong" with her. She was depressed...It was heartbreaking. I can only imagine how hard it is for her to accept having ADHD along with the normal hormone changes that happens to tween girls. It's so much to handle for a little child. This book which we read together helped us tremendously. I learned about it from [...]. An awesome resourceful ADD/ADHD website. My daughter now feels confident and happy with herself. She now knows that ADHD doesn't define her as a person. Along with doing exceptionally well in school with straight As, she is also very happy emotionally and able to enjoy her childhood. This book is a life saver. Thank you so much and to those parents out there with a young daughter with ADHD looking for some guidance and help - please get this book and read it together. Your child, your family will benefit from this book greatly. I guarantee that!

Wonderful book written in a language a child can understand. 12. August 2009
Von monkeyness - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I purchased this book for the child of a friend of mine. The book is designed in an amazing way just for young girls and is written in their language. It is engaging and does a great job of helping comfort girls with ADD/ADHD and letting them realize that they are not alone and that they have amazing gifts. She was so happy with the book and told me that she didn't feel like she was the only one who struggled with certain issues. This should be in every girls library collection if she has ADD/ADHD. It is a positive book and does not talk negatively about behaviors associated with ADD as other books that I have read say "How to deal with the problem of your child having ADD/ADHD." It is NOT a problem, it is a different way of thinking and behaving and has to be understood. I wish these books were sold more in actual stores instead of just online.

A must-have for teen & tween girls with ADHD 8. Juli 2009
Von SLT - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I absolutely loved this book! As a Mom with ADHD parenting a daughter with ADHD, Attention Girls! was exactly what I was looking for. The illustrations, graphics and layout of the book kept my daughter interested, while the incredibly helpful tips, stories and information taught us more than I would have ever imagined. Dr. Quinn made the information relatable and easily executable...what a difference reading it has made in our house!

AD/HD for Girls and Women of All ages 9. November 2009
Von Merrilee Zawadzki - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I was diagnosed with AD/HD as a retired math teacher at age 62. I never understood why I was always losing things; running late; and having trouble organizing my home and my life. I felt that I was not good enough; not smart enough; and not coordinated like my siblings. As I began to assess my skills and weaknesses; I started to understand how much AD/HD had impacted my life. I finally got the whole picture by reading this book. This paperback has confirmed my thoughts that my daughter and her daughters also have AD/HD. I believe that this mauel will give each of them a more positive attitude towards life with the understanding that her ADD brain is a blessing in disguise.

I would recommend this paperback to all teachers, counselors, and family care doctors. I think it should be read by each woman and/or girl soon after her diagnosis. I might suggest that an adult read "Attention Girls," with any girl under 10 years. The authors did a great job of explaining the different types of behaviors that AD/HD girls can exhibit; and why they might go undiagnosed for a long time. It is an easy read and full of great information. I will be buying copies for friends.

A godsend and great friend to girls with ADHD/ADD 14. Juli 2009
Von Gina Pera - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Tomboy Tatiana loves to be outside and moving around.

Grumpy Georgia is hypersensitive, not hyperactive; even tags in her shirt make her irritable.

Anxious Anna worries about school and her friends. Mostly she worries that she'll forget to do something important.

Meet just a few of the girls with ADHD who inhabit this compassionate, fun, and ever-practical guide. It takes more than one or two to illustrate the wide-ranging symptoms of ADHD in girls.

Beautifully designed with four-color illustrations and printed on slick paper, this book is perfect for reading with your daughter or letting her enjoy on her own. The information is solid and not '"dumbed down" but is clearly written and accessible. (In fact, I suspect moms with ADHD will gain much benefit, too!)

Topics include:
--Learning all about AD/HD
--Getting organized
--Paying attention
--HOMEWORK!
--Making and keeping friends
--Dealing with your emotions (many people don't realize that ADHD can create problems regulating one's emotional state and reactions)
--Understanding medication
And lots more.

About the author: It is largely thanks to Patricia Quinn, M.D., a developmental pediatrician, that ADHD in women and girls has gotten the attention it deserves. Today, many women are discovering only in mid-life (and much later) that they've had ADHD all their lives but no one knew! Some must then deal not only with ADHD symptoms but with the emotional fallout from years of struggle and secret shame.

Fortunately, girls growing up today can benefit from modern knowledge and, with this book, validation that they are not alone and there's nothing to be ashamed about. They are in good company, and there are solutions to their challenges.

The fact is, ADHD is not a one-size-fits all condition. There are sub-types and commonly co-existing conditions that affect how symptoms manifest. But it's especially important to know, if you are a woman or girl, that most books on ADHD simply do not address important aspects of your particular challenges and treatment strategies. Moreover, your therapist or physician might be unaware of these issues, too.

I don't know how Dr. Quinn has managed to write so many good books on ADHD, in addition to being a popular speaker and founding the non-profit National Center for Women and Girls with ADHD (with frequent collaborator, psychologist Kathleen Nadeau). The bottom line is, when you see her name on a book, you know it is solid information, engagingly presented. This book is no exception. It is a boon to girls with ADHD and their parents.
