Helping parents worldwide to understand their child’s special gifts
and reclaim their calm, happy family environment
Parents with ADHD kids often hear from the school over and over again that their child isn't living up to their potential or that they’re distracting the whole class. They hear that their child doesn’t turn in their assignments and that their desk is always messy. The teachers go on to say that they have 30 kids in the class and they can't give one kid all that special attention. At home there is a lot of arguing, crying, defiance and name-calling. So when parents walk into Dr. Bob’s office they are at the end of their rope.

In a nutshell, I am most impressed with this program, which incorporates a wealth of extremely helpful information and programming, derived largely from evidence-based practice presented in an extremely user-friendly format for the families of children with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Dr Stephen Hinshaw,University of California, Berkely (See revue of Total Focus by Dr Hinshaw a researcher and noted expert on children with ADHD)
“Hi, I’m Dr. Bob. I’m a clinical psychologist with over 30 years’ experience and I created Total Focus to share the techniques I developed over many years working with kids with ADD & ADHD. The techniques I have included in Total Focus are the ones I have found to be the most successful in real life working with real kids and real parents.The key to changing your child's behavior is not to stop the behavior that's a problem but rather to learn new behavior and reinforce it so that it gradually takes over.
I'm also a father and my son has ADHD. I understand this condition and the challenges it asks of the child and the parent from a very personal perspective. I was motivated to develop a program that works because I needed something that would work for my child and my family.”
Dr Bob Myers is a Licensed Child and Adolescent Psychologist. He is Associate Clinical Professor of Psychiatry and Human Behavior at the University of California, Irvine School of Medicine. Dr Myers has 30 years of clinical experience and specializes in developmental, behavioral and emotional disorders in children and adolescents. He earned his PhD from the University of Southern California.
These and the other components provide an easy to use, evidence based psychosocial and behavior modification treatment program for ADD - ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder). It provides all of these psychological,behavioral and cognitive interventions:
The Total Focus psychosocial & behavioral program for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder can be used with our without medication. Your professional can help you determine the best approach for your child. Research shows that only psychological interventions lead to longterm behavioral change because it actually "rewires the brain" while medication usually only provides symptom relief. Certainly some children require symptom relief before than fully participate from psychological treatment.
“Over the years I've found that working with ADHD kids and parents has been the most rewarding aspect of my career as a child psychologist. Why? Because many times parents would come into see me feeling very desperate, thinking they had somehow messed up their kid, only to find out they had probably done everything they could do to help their child; They simply did not understand what they were dealing with.
Out of frustration they began to use one method after another. They would get a book read it then they would try the method for a week or so and give up. Thinking it didn't work. The truth is you're likely not seeing the same kinds of behavior in your child that you see in other children and you're not seeing the same kinds of response to you and your discipline that you expect.”

I am a teacher and a parent of an ADHD child. I worked often with students with focus issues and to be honest, we all have focus issues from time to time. I felt the Total Focus program gave effective strategies for students to learn, with appropriate language that was easy to follow. I appreciated the 2- different age levels for learning the strategies and the amount of time it took to learn was small. This program had all the qualities a teacher would look for and also a parent. I recommend the program and regret I did not buy sooner. With so many programs available, it was hard to decide which to buy. Our therapist, who we trust, told us she reviewed it and we would benefit from the program and she was right. *
“The world is quite different for ADHD kids than it is for you or I. They do something because it is there to be done. They don’t really thinkit through. If they paused and thought about it, they most likely would not do the bad behavior. ADD children behaveimpulsively, get in trouble, and then feel picked on. Let me share an example with you.
Imagine a classroom of children misbehaving while the teacher stepped out for a minute. Normal children would stop the bad behavior immediately upon seeing the teacher return, but ADHD kids will get caught because they have a hard time slowing down. Now they are the one in trouble for doing something all the other kids were doing too and they feel singled out, picked on and upset
The total focus program uses a step-by-step three-pronged approach to improving your child's attention, concentration and self-control. Positive reinforcement is the basis for the behavior modification program that we use in total focus and I think you will be amazed at the success once you start implementing these techniques.
Don't worry, you don't need to be a psychologist to do this. It's very simple, and besides, you have your own personal child psychologist, me, beside you the whole time.”

The Total Focus Program is an excellent resource for families and educators working/living with children with attentional deficits. It gives practical ideas, lessons, and structures to implement immediately. *
“In my experience, kids with ADHD respond better to positive reinforcement than negative reinforcement. In fact, they are so motivated by positive reinforcement that when they do receive it they will try harder. They tend to overreact to negative feedback and it can actually interfere with their ability to stay on task.”

This is a program that allows for the complete treatment of a child with ADHD and allows a family to not rely soley on medication. I feel the program is designed to get the kid to work with his ADHD and do solid thinking about how to approach life. Easy to use. Can be transferred to many different environments very easily. Great product for handling ADHD through the years. Not deisgned for a miracle cure--but rather a taking ADHD and using this amazing energy to a child's advantage! *
These techniques teach kids to relax in situations where they become frustrated. When anybody is frustrated they will have difficulty concentrating, paying attention and thinking clearly. This is even more so for a child with ADHD.
Through the CDs and workbook Dr Bob talks directly to kids in away they can understand themselves and others more realistically and develop the coping skills and social skills to help them become more successful at home, school and in the community. The materials enable the parent to learn along with the child so they can be a coach and form a more positive and collaborative parent/child relationship.

It was one of those nights with my ADHD son...I had, had it and thought I need something to help me with him! He was already seeing a therapist and taking medicine so I thought I don't know what else to do. So like many others I went to google...and that is when I found this program. The program gave me parenting advice on how to modify my son's behaviors and how to better understand him and why he would do and say some of the things he did. If you like me did a random google search and landed here...I'll tell you it's worth the money - buy the Total Focus program and you too will feel passionate enough about it to write a review - as I'm typically not a review writer *
Children with ADHD often have difficulty with concentration and paying attention, along with task completion. They also have difficulty with memory sequencing (putting things in order) and categorizing, (putting things in groups) also makes it difficult for them to follow directions combining these two that have multiple steps. The brain training section of Total Focus will help your child in the following ways:
“Here's the best part. You will feel like you have your child back and your child will feel like everyone around them has changed, not noticing the change is coming from within.”
Maybe you are experiencing these thoughts yourself. It's natural that you get to the point frustration, trying to raise your child the best you can, thinking that your child is the same as any other kid on the block. That’s why I’m pleased to offer you a money back guarantee** on Total Focus.
In Total Focus, I give you the techniques I’ve used in my practice-and in my family–to help improve attention, concentration and self–control in children. Here’s a look:

The program was helpful to understand how to implement and be consistent with strategies that enabled us to guide our child along the life changing path. He continues to work hard and use strategies to focus. His self-worth and self-esteem has dramatically increased! *
