My wife just ordered me a book: "Scattered Minds". Not sure of the author. I'll let you know how it is if I can ever make my way through it as soon as it gets here.

Not sure if it has ANYthing to do with school or anything, but a good book is a good book.

i totally agree. that book was great. another book i found helpful, and this ones only for the girls (sorry guys :) ) was The Girl's Guide to AD/HD by Beth Walker. it's very good and informative and has a whole chapter on school tips as well as anything else youd ever want to know about add and how it affects you.
