  1. New: The Adult ADHD Tool Kit

    "In over 35 years of treating adults with ADHD, I have never come across a better resource than Ramsay and Rostain’s The Adult ADHD Tool Kit. After an excellent presentation of foundational processes such as planning, time management, procrastination, motivation, organization, and challenging distorted beliefs, they creatively apply these techniques to coping in college, the workplace, relationships, and health. They also address the excessive use of technology and the role of medication for treating adult ADHD. Adults with ADHD and the professionals treating them will benefit greatly from Drs. Ramsay and Rostain’s wisdom. Don’t leave home without this tool kit."
