Product description

"All Dogs Have ADHD" takes an inspiring and affectionate look at Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), using images and ideas from the canine world to explore a variety of traits that will be instantly recognisable to those who are familiar with ADHD. Following the style of the award-winning "All Cats Have Asperger Syndrome", charming colour photographs of dogs bring to life familiar ADHD characteristics such as being restless and excitable, getting easily distracted, and acting on impulse. This delightful book combines humour with understanding to reflect the difficulties and joys of raising a child with ADHD and celebrates what it means to be considered 'different'. This absorbing and enjoyable book takes a refreshing approach to understanding ADHD.

By Dael Lea 31 Dec 2012 5

I'm 23, just been re-diagnosed with ADHD and I was gifted this book in E-BOOK format (all be it as a joke from my dear friend) she thought I reminded her of her golden retriever before I started my meds again.

It's one thing to understand how a disability works on an academic level, as described by doctors, but this book is one of the most light hearted yet heart warming explanations about what having ADHD is like.

It helped me grasp my disability better as well as my friends abs family.

I'll be forever grateful that this book was published and that I squired a copy, even if it was intended as an ironic joke.
