    'Through careful consideration of the unique needs and challenges for both staff and students at the secondary level, Judith R. Harrison, Denise A. Soares, and Steven W. Evans, detail classroom-based interventions that are relevant and accessible. Harrison, Soares, and Evans skillfully outline these interventions while acknowledging potential barriers that can arise in the real word and provide their readers methods to overcome these barriers as well. I would recommend The Educator’s Guide to ADHD Interventions: Strategies for Grades 5 – 12 to other educators, school staff, and those who are pursuing a career in the field of education.'

    'The author’s work on strategies teachers can implement for students with ADHD in grades 5-12 is a phenomenal piece of literature! This book is indeed one of a kind and will serve as a tool all teachers can use and benefit from for years to come.  This book expands on topics regarding students with ADHD in several aspects that have never before been explained to teachers of students with ADHD in middle and high schools.'

    Josh LangbergPhD Director, Center for Youth Social Emotional Wellness (CYSEW), Professor of Clinical Psychology 

    'The book provides an excellent resource for middle and high school teachers to meet the needs of their students. [...] Throughout, the authors strike a balance between using accommodations and providing step-by-step interventions. This resource text connects the gap between research and practice in that each chapter is filled with training interventions for educators of adolescents with ADHD.'
