This positive, straightforward book offers kids with autism spectrum disorders (ASDs) their own comprehensive resource for both un...derstanding their condition and finding tools to cope with the challenges they face every day.

Meant to be read with a parent, the book addresses questions (Whats an ASD? Why me?) and provides strategies for communicating, making and keeping friends, and succeeding in school.

From an early age, actor Jonathan Chesner knew he had the kind of brain that would wear a Hawaiian shirt, bright red pants, and co...ol painted shoes to a wedding while most other peoples brains would wear three-piece suits. He also knew that if he learned how to manage the difficulties of ADHD and harness its awesome powers, he would help other special brains by sharing this knowledge in a book to slay all other books. This is that book. ADHD in HD: Brains Gone Wild is a kinetic collection of frank personal stories of failure and success, hilarious anecdotes, wild ideas, and point-blank advice that will resonate with teens and young adults.

The book addresses the four main characteristics of ADHD: hyperactivity, impulsivity, inattention, and indecisiveness. It provides positive advice about school, family life, social life, dating, careers, medicine, and how to be like Mr. T,even if you dont have a Mohawk, lots of gold chains, or huge muscles.

The inspiration for this book comes from the ancient Korean history of the Hwarang? young student-warriors who worked to strengthe...n their spirits as well as their fighting skills. Author Jim Langlas, an educator and Taekwondo master, presents seven principles that are rooted in the long tradition of Taekwondo and are also tied to modern character education: courtesy, integrity, perseverance, self-control, indomitable spirit, community service, and love. Breaking each of the principles into four fundamentals, Langlas explores them through a mix of storytelling from the Hwarang and writing from his own former students, describing ways in which they?ve applied these principles to their own lives and inspiring readers to do the same. Rounding out the narrative are questions to spur reflection, discussion, and action. A background or interest in Taekwondo or other martial arts is by no means necessary for readers to understand and benefit from this engaging book. Its storytelling aspect?and especially the enduring appeal of traditional master/student tales?will resonate with teens of varying interests and backgrounds.
