This compelling video for children and teens will grab their attention while simultaneously educating them about their ADD or ADHD. Produced by the popular authors, Alex Zeigler and Chris Abney Zeigler Dendy, the DVD features advice from the real experts--30 young people from 12 states ranging in age from 12 to 21. Speaking from their own personal experiences, these youth provide up-to-date scientific facts plus advice on six ADHD challenges.
General guidelines for use:
Track 1 introduces the hosts: Alex Zeigler, the videographer and editor, and his high school friend, Lewis Alston, a popular Atlanta Radio DJ/VJ.
Track 2 features the wisdom and personal experiences of the teenage experts.
Track 3 contains "Ten Key Facts," a scripted segment that lays a foundation for understanding ADHD.
Track 4 offers Dr. Mandelkorn's insights as a physician who not only specializes in treating ADHD, but who also has attention deficit himself.
Keep in mind your child's "listening limits"--perhaps 20 minutes or so at a time. It's important to stop the video before he or she becomes bored!
BONUS: Includes a letter-sized ADHD Iceberg Poster!
