ADHD goes WAY beyond, “look a squirrel!” My name is Katelyn Mabry and I want to take you on a journey with me! A journey that began when I was diagnosed with ADHD when I was 10 years old. “What is wrong with me?” “I’m not good enough”, “I hate myself” and “I’m stupid” where all too common thoughts revolving in my brain! I felt ALONE in how I thought and felt! “Hi It’s Me! I have ADHD” was written and created to help children feel understood, connected, and educated on how their minds and emotions work. As a Reading Specialist, it’s my mission to educate, empower, and encourage teachers, parents, social workers, and peers to understand and respond in love to those of us internally struggling with symptoms that come with the ADHD diagnosis. As a mother of 4, and having a daughter recently diagnosed with ADHD, it deepens my passion to dig beneath the diagnosis to discover the many gifts and talents that can be tapped into and used to ultimately be successful in life! I may have ADHD, but I choose not to let my “neuro-diverse” brain define me; instead I am determined to redefine it!
I was very curious about this book, because I have a child with ADHD. This child is now grown. The beginning of this book was a little shocking with the little girl looking possessed and bouncing off the walls. She was out of control and unable to function in the real world. I’m not sure that I would want to read this to a child who has been diagnosed with ADHD, because I believe that children of all labels can have some control over themselves. As the child grows, she develops better control, which I was very glad to see. She was more proud of herself for being able to fit in and behave like the rest of her peers. I think this book can be good to explain ADHD to children who don’t have it, because some children need to see an exaggerated picture in order to understand something.
