Finally, a book about ADHD and Learning Disabilities that helps parents and children together!

This book, for children age 6-18 years and their parents, illustrates the personal experience of a child who has attention deficit disorder (with or without hyperactivity) and/or learning disabilities to provide better understanding of these phenomena and greater awareness of the child’s internal world. It teaches how to communicate with ones child without accusations, mutual anger, or frustration. It describes the child’s characteristic problems, how he feels and thinks about himself, implications for his academic, emotional, and social functioning and offers practical instructions for parents, teachers, and children.

Share feelings about personal stories with which your child can identify

A unique section features children speaking their own mind, intended for young readers and parents together. It presents children’s stories of their experiences, sense of inability to meet expectations, and personal feelings of pain. As the child reads the story and identifies with the feelings and thoughts expressed, parents can discuss with their child, in a supportive and empathic atmosphere, his academic and social problems and possible better ways of coping.

“Why is it Always My Fault?” focuses on children who have attention deficit disorders (such as ADHD) and/or learning disabilities. On the one hand, the book helps authors to better understand their children who are suffering from this, and on the other hand, it also helps the children themselves, and illustrates their own, internal world.

It teaches parents how to communicate with their children under these circumstances, and helps put things into perspective. Authors who have children with ADHD or learning disabilities, or teachers teaching these children, should definitely read this book.
