As a mother who has struggled with ADHD ad now having a son with ADHD I struggle to find way to help him cope with the internal thoughts that never slow down or his ticks that get out of control when his medication doesn't work.
Grace Friedman has the ability to guide readers with love, positive energy and a reminder that you are more than you ADHD.
