The Boy Who Lost His Attention
Until he discovered his super powers
Once there was a boy who lost his attention ... until he discovered
his superpowers. Based on a true story, this book highlights how an attention deficit diagnosis can explain children’s behaviour in school and at home and the struggle and frustration that follows for children, their parents, and their teachers. This book shares strategies on how to deal with an attention deficit diagnosis and how to manage the resultant behaviour. The book also recognizes a common family arrangement where children are parented by families who live separately but parent together. The book, The Boy Who Lost His Attention, shows how all people can overcome a learning challenge through persistence, resilience, and a growth mindset.
