When you have a child diagnosed with ADHD, so many questions and worries run through your mind. At home, at school and in social situations, there is so much you need to know and so many new systems to put in place. The good news is that you don't have to figure everything out on your own.

In an easy-reading, workbook format, A Family's First Guide: ADHD gives you a step-by-step action plan for helping your child, your family and yourself thrive.

Written by Dr. Rebecca Resnik, a psychotherapist with decades of experience working with both ADHD and family dynamics, A Family's First Guide: ADHD explains the diagnosis and where to go from there. You'll learn how to help your child - and entire family - deal with ADHD all the way from preschool to college and beyond. You'll learn practical steps and support systems you can implement immediately to improve attention and impulse control, social interactions, schoolwork, executive functioning skills and everyone's peace and happiness at home.

Ready-to-use tools and positive coping strategies, including how to:
* Understand your child's specific ADHD diagnosis
* Address how that diagnosis affects the entire family
* Defuse your child's button-pushing behaviors
* Cut through educational 'red tape' to secure the right accommodations
* Manage difficult people (like in-laws who think you're the problem)
* Define your child's unique strengths, behaviors and needs
* Get through homework
* Get the child ready in the morning
* Get the child settled down for bed at night
* Help the child make and keep friends
* Keep the child motivated
* Improve the child's personal organization
* Cope with emotional 'ups and downs' (your child's and yours)
* Help the child get along with siblings
* Retain your own resilience as you deal with the blessings and challenges of parenting a child with ADHD
