Chrissie Davies shares her vision and inspiration for Love Me, Love My ADHD…
Love Me, Love My ADHD is written by child behaviour expert Chrissie Davies and illustrator Trish Burton, who want to help kids, families, and teachers understand the strengths of neurodivergent children. The book is about a family that loves and accepts their kiddos just the way they are rather than who others want them to be. The book shows just how differently this complex neurotype can present for individuals. Even on their hardest days, our ADHDers have something valuable to offer, and we should always celebrate our differences.
Through this story, young readers will learn that no matter where they go, there will always be people who love and appreciate their unique energy, vibe, and amazing mind.
So, let’s all come together and celebrate our differences because, with love, support, and patience, our amazing ADHD kids can do anything they set their brilliant minds to!
“I want the world to understand that our ADHD children are not problems that need fixing. Their brains are uniquely wired, meaning they see things through a unique lens. This is probably why they’re always hanging upside down, or spinning, rolling, moving, and grooving with such fabulous gusto.
ADHD kids have so much to say, and they’re so incredibly curious about the world they live in. With unique ways of getting things done, ADHD’ers are SO much more than the behaviours we see on the surface. Dig a little deeper, and you will find loving, kind, clever kids longing to be loved for who they are, not who the world expects them to be.
When we understand how these brains process information, we can harness their strengths and interests and provide them with the right supports.
We can learn to EMBRACE the amazing colours they radiate and help them shine bright like beautiful rainbows.”
Congratulations, Chrissie, for your dedication and care for this important work in helping children and families to find the right loving support and to recognise their strengths.
