"Like my son Joshua...I was simply a kid, considered 'unteachable' by teachers, 'unreachable' by child psychologists, and 'unbearable' by my own family. My mother's anguished refrain, 'I hope you have one just like you and then you will understand,' still resonates in my mind. I know she didn't mean it. But her wish had come true. Joshua was just like me." When Dr. Bruce Roseman's son, Joshua, was diagnosed with Attention Deficit Disorder, he was determined to give his son the help that wasn't available in his own childhood. Drawing on his medical training-and a lifetime of dealing with his own disability-Dr. Roseman eventually developed a system that enabled Joshua to combat his disability and learn to read. Deeply moving and full of concrete techniques and advice, A Kid Just Like Me is not only a journey of the heart and mind, it is a story of hope for parents and children affected by this all-too-common disorder.
