"Marvin's Monster Diary: ADHD Attacks has recently been
added to my arsenal. It has been a terrific tool for my younger
clients as it has helped them open up about their own struggles
with ADHD. The book has given them new skills and tools to cope
with their challenges . . . Thank you so much for this simple and
fun book that both coaches and parents can use effectively with
their respective clients or children."
--Allison Burns, ACC and ADHD coach
