Did you every feel like there's a jumping bean inside of you even when you are trying to sleep? I do. I feel wiggly and itchy almost all the time I love to be excited, but sometimes I get too excited. I wish I had a power switch, like the TV. Then I could turn myself off. (CLICK ) Cory has lots of stories to tell--and lots of ways to get organized, pay attention, calm down, remember things, make friends, and feel good about himself and life with ADHD. In short statements and vignettes, Cory describes what it's like to have ADHD: how it affects his relationships with friends and family, his school performance, and his overall functioning. He also describes many ways of coping with ADHD: medication, therapy/counseling, and practical tips for school, home, and friendships. Includes a Note to Parents.
