In Flipping ADHD on Its Head, Dr. Poole introduces and explores a holistic, integrated, and empowering approach to identifying and promoting the strengths of ADHD children by first flipping thinking about ADHD. Rather than framing ADHD as a disability, Dr. Proole encourages readers to see it as a normal, if somewhat challenging, way that a brain works. Rather than "fixing" readers, Dr. Poole wants them to focus on understanding and improving their behaviors in three areas: medical, behavioral, and educational.

​Dr. Poole shares his own stories and those of his patients to help readers go from merely living with ADHD to thriving.
