Learn the “How” of Teaching

The moment you accept and implement the truth that your child needs to move in order to learn, it will total change your world, and his. –Carol Barnier

If you’ve never leaned over, looked into your clothes dryer and said, “Finish the chapter you’re on and come on out. It’s time for lunch,” then you may not be ready for what a highly distractible ADHD child can bring to your world. –Carol Barnier


Book Description

Carol Barnier knew that her son — more likely to be sitting on the table (or the refrigerator) than in his chair — was worthy of high expectations. She also knew that he could easily miss achieving them if she didn’t find the right key to unlock his capacity to learn. Carol found volumes of information on how to recognize the challenges in ADHD (Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder) children, how to manage them, how to discipline them, and how to accept them. But no one told her how to teach her son math tomorrow. In her search for solutions, she developed techniques that are not only fun for all children, but highly successful with any child who struggles with focus. This book gives you loads of ideas, including:

• Creative reproducible activity aids that you’ll want to use right away

• A phonics program where every lesson is a quick game kids will love

• Instuctional games, manipulatives, and motions that will help you work with, no against, your child’s learning style

• Math strategies that make even a workbook fun

• Many more effective, fun solutions to the daily dilemma, “How do I teach my child tomorrow?”

The best available resource for teaching a child who struggles with focus. Includes reproducible games and activity guides.



Book Comments

My husband and I found this book when we were searching for answers when trying to decide if we should homeschool our son who we were being told that he may have ADHD. We wanted to homeschool because we were afraid of the school “giving up” on him. We were afraid to homeschool because if professional’s could not teach my son how could I. I saw the title and thought this is my son. It has been a great resource. It gave my husband ideas on how to work with our son. The tips and insight the book offered has not only helped us to educate our son but also has helped me to understand where he is coming from and a little more about him. I highly recommend this book for anyone that is either considering homeschooling an ADD, ADHD or even just Hyper child, or if you even just want to tutor you child afterschool it will still be a vaulable reference. –Jennifer

We saw Carol Barnier at a homeschool convention recently, she is an amazing (and hilarious) speaker and I love her books. My son is very wiggly and distratactable, it was nice to see that we are definatly not alone with our experience homeschooling a hyperactive child. Her suggestions are wonderful, practical, and encouraging. My favorite chapter is “seeing the gift in this child,” it really gave me an appreciation for my son’s unique talents and personality. I have never seen a book like this, I know it will be a valuable resource we will turn to often now and in the years to come. –Amazon Reviewer
