Attention Difference Disorder in the Toronto Star

thestar logo Attention Difference Disorder in the Toronto StarThis past weekend, there was an article about my new book: Attention Difference Disorder. You can see the online version of the article here.

You can see a PDF of the article here (a scan of the newspaper article).

The response to the article has been amazing. People have been getting in touch and letting me know that they have found the message of Attention Difference Disorder exciting and helpful. This is so meaningful to me – as I’m excited to see that the message of the book is getting out to more people. The message that you can make a difference for people with ADD/ADHD by taking a strength based approach, and by focusing on differences rather than deficits.

You can read more about the book here (and you can get your copy too – with links to online publishers who sell the book).

  1. This is a great interview. I hope it is read widely.
    Keep up the advocacy Dr. Handelman.
    Best regards,

  2. Fantastic article that was written about this book in the Toronto Star! I loved the picture with the super heros all over your desk! :) I love what you said here, ” A lot of these kids have great gifts and abilities, and everybody is so focused on how much they are struggling. It’s more than just politically correct fluff. I really see it as a significant difference that can help kids understand themselves.” And then you talked about how you help these kids “play to their strengths”. The last paragraph was my favorite where you talk about harnessing their energy for good and end by saying… “Through history, the people who have made the most dramatic changes in our society are people who looked at the same thing we’ve all looked at and saw it in a different perspective.”

    This is Epic. Thanks Dr. Handleman! You’re changing so many families lives.
