Ready for Take-Off: Preparing Your Teen with ADHD or LD for College

by Theresa L. Maitland, Ph.D. and Patricia Quinn, MD

208 pages


In today's world, getting accepted to college is only half of the battle. Staying in there is another matter altogether. And for students with ADHD or learning disabilities, staying, thriving, and graduating from college can be very challenging even for the most academically prepared students.
Ready for Take-Off lays out a plan to keep students with ADHD or LD in college by first teaching parents to prepare their teen for take-off and their first solo flight away from the home.

This essential resource encourages parents to adopt a unique "coaching-style" approach in their parenting and urges parents to stop micromanaging their teen's day-to-day life. Using college readiness surveys and handy worksheets, parents can objectively determine if they are playing a productive or nonproductive role in their teenager's life and learn ways to promote self-determination, daily living and academic skills by using the time in high school to help their teen be ready for take-off.

Pieces of a Puzzle: The Link Between Eating Disorders and ADD

by Carolyn Piver Dukarm, MD


People suffer daily from the symptoms of eating disorders. For some, however, eating is not the only area of their life that is out-of-control. In this book, Dr. Carolyn Piver Dukarm, an eating disorders specialist, focuses on the overlap between eating disorders and Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and points out how diagnosing and treating both disorders can provide the missing piece of the puzzle that holds the key to recovery for many individuals.

Divided into six sections, covering the spectrum from diagnosis to treatment of both disorders, each section contains "guidelines" or specific action steps that the reader can take. Participation is encouraged through directed questions and exercises.

Sections include:

  • Diagnosis of eating disorders and attention deficit disorder
  • Finding the motivation to recover
  • Nutrition as an important part of the treatment
  • Medication and supplements
  • Restructuring your life to better deal with both issues
  • Comprehensive Guidelines for Health Care Professionals
