Friends, this is a great book if you have a child or family member with ADHD, Autism or self-regulation issues. It is very reasonably priced especially considering it has a wealth of information backed by tons of research and experience. This book is written by two women, Dana Godbout Laake, R.D.H., M.S., L.D.N. and Dr. Pamela J. Compart, MD. Both who have tons of experience with helping families with children with challenges. This pair also wrote a great cookbook too. I have actually met both of these experts in person several times.
Anyway, what I like about this book is that you can go to the index and look up your loved one’s symptoms and get good, quick resources. For example, if your loved one is struggling with sleep, allergies, anxiety or attention issues, it gives tons of pages listed and has great information on supplements and other things you can try. Recommended dosages by age are often included and you don’t have to be a Philadelphia lawyer to understand it. It also discusses side effects to look out for like too much magnesium may cause loose stools, yuck!
This book also has some very practical information as well. It has a small chapter on special diets to try as well as great tips on how to get a loved one to swallow a pill. It also discusses information like dealing with a picky eater and some product source recommendations.
Friends, I can’t say enough good things about this book. It truly is a great resource.
