Hello! This is my first time here. My 11 year old son has been diagnosed as ADHD, inattentive type. I read Dr. Ed Hallowell's book, Super-parenting for ADD, which has some great info in it, but I feel it really focuses on kids with the "H' (hyperactivity). He uses the metaphor of an ADHD brain as a Ferrari race car that has just regular brakes, and that medication (or other strategies) can act like better brakes for the gifted/challenged ADHD brain. I shared this with my son, and he said, "I think that's more for kids with hyperactivity, Mom." Gotta love his honesty! Does anyone have other metaphors or images that work for your kids who are "inattentive types"?
