Description
When first published in 1989, "Shelley, the Hyperactive Turtle" was one of the first children's books about AD/HD. Ever since, it has been a favourite among children, families, teachers, and therapists who all seem to enjoy the antics of this impulsive, wiggly, and mischievous turtle. This is a new second edition which features an updated storyline, and some adorable new illustrations. The cover is new as well, showing Shelley atop his skateboard. The story follows Shelley through some bumpy times at school, on the bus, and with other kids. His worried mother takes him to the doctor, where she and Shelley answer a lot of questions about his behaviour, and he plays with puzzles and blocks -- activities that a child would typically experience during an AD/HD evaluation. After Shelley is diagnosed, the doctor recommends therapy and medication to help control his AD/HD. "Shelley, the Hyperactive Turtle" continues to be a popular, reassuring story for young children who are going through the diagnostic process or who are having problems behaving at school or making friends because of AD/HD. Ages 3 to 7 years.
