The Homeschooler's Guide To Attentional Difficulties approaches the subject of ADHD from the homeschooler's standpoint, offering helpful guidelines for school work and specific subjects, as well as outside activities. It takes a non-medication approach to solving attentional difficulties, though it does not reject the idea of medication. What is often most helpful is an informed, nurturing and specifically structured environment. Focusing on environmental factors and teaching techniques that are under the direct control of the teaching parent this provides options that do not include medication.

Review 1 for The Homeschooler's Guide to Attentional Difficulties: Practial Tips for Daily Success
Date:August 23, 2012
This unassuming book isn't flashy like many products out there but don't let it fool you. I didn't have to read through pages of writing that told me what I already new- having a child with learning differences is hard. It gets right to the nuts and bolts of how to help my child and how to help me. It's easy to understand. It's practical. It works. In our home we have dyslexia, add and aspergers and I have used these real solutions with all of them. Thanks to her I stopped pulling my hair out. Because of this book I have bought pretty much all of Mrs. Dixon's guides and curriculum. They are on my must have list for my tool box.

I was reluctant to purchase because of the price. This was confirmed when I received the book - this price is pretty high for 24 pages that look like they were assembled at the local copy stop.HOWEVER - the information contained within the book is priceless. Coming from a mom and teacher with actual experience working with ADHD-type problems, this booklet is a plethora of wonderful, practical tips for success in homeschool. She *tells* *you* *how* to modify the environment, curriculum, presentation, test taking, time management, and instructions in a way that best suits this distracted child. I wish I could thank Jill Dixon in person for this information!
