ADHD A Guide for Consumers (E-Book)
Michael S. Greenberg, Ph.D. & Flora Zaken-Greenberg, Ph.D.

ADHD is the most frequently diagnosed childhood mental health disorder. Not only has the diagnosis and treatment of ADHD dramatically increased in the US in the past few decades, but according to leading ADHD expert Dr. Russell A. Barkley, “The disorder has been found to exist in virtually every country in which it has been investigated.” ADHD has traditionally been categorized as a disorder of childhood. However, it is now recognized that a large percentage of adults still wrestle with the frustrations of ADHD in their day to day functioning. Considerable progress has been made in diagnosing and treating ADHD. The central theme of this book is ADHD can be successfully treated and managed. Increasing your knowledge and self-awareness of ADHD, along with sustained motivation, are your best tools for living a successful, productive, and happy life. 

Over the years of treating ADHD we have generated self-help strategies to reduce the number of errors people make in their day to day activities. We have also generated our own model of ADHD that builds upon prior research in the field. Once you have a firm understanding of ADHD you can be creative and make up your own self-help techniques. Many of you have already done some of this on your own, and this book can help you systematically build upon your successes. For parents of children with ADHD, many self-help techniques can be scaled down and modified to use with your child. While a child does not have to remember where he or she put their car keys they certainly need to remember to bring their homework home, not lose their school supplies, and study for tomorrow’s quiz. Our theory and treatment approach to ADHD is derived from cognitive-behavioral psychology. This book is intended to present both a comprehensive model of ADHD, as well as a practical guide for managing ADHD in real life for children and adults.

PTSD
Reviews:

05/19/2016 - “I Have a Voice” is a must read children’s book for children challenged with selective mutism, the fear of speaking. Authors, Joni-Klein Higger and Flora Zaken-Greenberg, Ph.D., have combined their powerful voices of experience, compassion and talents in a story that will help parents, teachers, counselors, and therapists identify this anxiety disorder. Children, who are diagnosed with this syndrome, will easily relate to the challenges encountered by the adorable main character Jamie. As they turn the pages, they will also discover, they are not alone, there is help and a cherished moment in their time when they will no longer be afraid to speak! Beautifully illustrated by Eileen Goldenberg who visually captures the imperative message of the authors.

06/01/2016- Anyone who knows me is aware that I've cared about Special Needs, especially in kids, for most of my life. But the book, I Have a Voice by Joni Klein Higger and Flora Zaken-Greenberg, Ph.D, is about a child with a condition I'd never heard of before. It's called Selective Mutism.
Jamie, the main character, is a young girl who can't talk in social situations, and she'll be starting Kindergarten soon. Her mother takes her to a therapist who helps her overcome her fear of speaking.
This book will be especially helpful to kids with similar conditions, and I'm sure lots of doctors, therapists and Special Education teachers will want to have copies.
The information at the end of the book by Dr. Zaken-Greenberg about selective mutism will be especially interesting to adults who work with children. 
Joni Klein-Higger has written the book in a friendly style so ordinary kids will also enjoy the story as it helps them become more understanding of others.
The illustrations by Eileen Goldberg are cheerful and help make the book fun to read.

06/24/16- I HAVE A VOICE is a wonderful children’s picture book which fills an important void in the information available regarding Selective Mutism and gives a voice to all those struggling to do so themselves. I HAVE A VOICE explores the life of a child, Jamie, who suffers from Selective Mutism, an anxiety disorder characterized by difficulty speaking in social situations.
Joni Klein-Higger and Flora Zaken-Greenberg use simple and easily relatable language to explain Jamie’s life and feelings as she struggles with her fear to speak and works with her “feelings” doctor in preparation for the start of Kindergarten. This is a terrific book that parents can use to help kids understand when “talking is scary,” either for themselves or others they know.
Ms. Goldenberg’s wonderful illustrations are bright and vivid and really bring Jamie’s story to life.
I applaud Ms. Klein-Higger and Dr. Zaken-Greenberg for their open and relatable story and giving a voice to those in need. It will help many children, families, teachers and others who suffer from, or know others suffering from, Selective Mutism. I look forward to using and recommending this book in my Speech/Language Pathology practice. Well done!

Coby Ryan Harris Is Officially Fat by Joni Klein-Higger and Flora Zaken-Greenberg revolves around the relevant topic of child obesity. Coby is a seventh grader and his BMI is higher than it should be, so the doctor tells him that it can cause serious health problems. Coby’s mother is nervous, but the doctor hands over a booklet on a variety of healthy foods with a front cover that says “A Guide to Healthy Family Eating.” The doctor advises Coby to be mindful of the food he eats and to exercise more to reduce his weight. Coby did not want to hear it from the doctor. Now he knows he is ‘officially fat.’ Will Coby be able to reduce his BMI by regulating his diet and exercising?
Child obesity is common nowadays and the author does a clever job of handling the topic through Coby’s story. The book is entertaining and many parents and children will be able to connect with Coby’s plight. Coby’s feelings of hurt and being the butt of jokes are tangible. The story also has a bullying angle with C.J. Wright always troubling Coby, then girls, and divorce. The author weaves these themes seamlessly into the plot with expertise. All the characters in the story are well portrayed, real, relatable, and memorable.
It’s a good bedtime storybook and can also be used for read aloud sessions in classrooms and school libraries. Storybooks like this are good for children to read so as to help them understand the message and the concept clearly when narrated with the help of a story.
