Kerry Cooney's son was diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) nearly 20 years ago.
She says that ADHD children suffer from short term memory loss which inhibits their ability to organise themselves.
The lack of order causes them to become frustrated and angry.
'It's time for parents, teachers, carers and all those involved to receive some strategies,' says Kerry.
Celine Foenander spoke to Kerry about her book, Everyday ADHD and the workshops she is holding in Gippsland over the next week..

I have just listened to Kerry Cooney on ABC radio tonight and just loved her. I have a 6yr old boy, diagnosed last year with ADHD with a minor trait of Austim and I am just so passionate to find out as much information as I can to help my beautiful son. Kerry hit the nail on the head on radio tonight ...she was fabulous and it was quite refreshing and beautiful to hear her talk and so positive.
