Acknowledgements and Works Cited

This page is more lengthy than in my book because I kept thinking of pepole to thank after the fact!


I would like to thank: Paulina Augustine, Ric Balius, Andrea Becker, Sarah Black, Aimee Brito, Carissa Frame, Lisa Gendusa, Colleen Gjataj, Dr. Anna Hammond, Jen Haselhorst, Dr. Anne Holbrook, Caron Jones, Sharalee Lewis, Dr. Eleni S. Liossis, Jason MacDonald, Diana Majerczyk, Beth Maleski, Shawna Paplaski, Bonnie Ramirez, Kim Redfield, Cindy Rousseau, Mindy Turner, Sabrina Washington, Anna Webb, Ryan Williams, Deb Zielke, and Kristine Zimmer.


I thank all of these professionals listed above for their help with this manuscript. I quote them during the different sections of Toddlers & ADHD that pertain to their specific professions, and I am so appreciative for their help and their friendship! They are clinical therapists, learning behavior specialists, clinical instructors, teachers, behavioral health counselors, school administrators, higher education faculty, clinical psychologists, pharmacists, early childood professionals, reading specialists, occuapational therapists, social workers, dance/movement therapists, and special education teachers. Some of them even have (or had) their own toddlers with ADHD, and some have ADHD themselves, so they were able to give me both personal as well as professional input. To be clear and as a disclaimer, these professionals neither agree nor disagree with anything written in this book by me or by the other sources quoted, even within the same sections in which their statements might appear.


I thank Ross Kellan and Mark Duker, high school teachers of mine who were influencial in my decision to puruse careers working with children. I thank Susie and Keith Ozsvath, who were my supervisors duing my student teaching experience; I had the opportunity to learn from the best! I thank Lila Fagan and Kristin Kopta, who were my teaching mentors. I give thanks to Dr. Richard Shaw, my graduate school academic advisor and professor, who continuously pushed me to strive for my best. I give thanks to those who I did counseling internships with- Gary Kantor, Shelley Naheedy, Ken Decker, and Dr. Nancy Wajler. They helped guide me in the direction I was headed.


I thank my place of employment for giving me the opportunity to do what I am passionate about every day for the last 7 school years, and for my bosses, Sean Fritz, Dr. John Glennon, Lisa Grigsby, and Mary Sue Parla (and also to the bosses at our other locations, Mike Carter and John Flannery). A special thanks goes out to my fellow clinical therapists, expressive therapists, and special education teachers because I learn from them on a daily basis. Their talent to work with these children and their wealth of knowledge on best-practice and intervention is noteworthy.


There are some people mentioned in my book who I also have to thank: Sue Balius, Flo Gutierrez, Dan Jones, Chuck Pickerill, and Jen Walsh.  


I thank the people who have guided me spiritually from Community Christian Church: Shannon Gutierrez, Carter Moss, and Melissa Novacek. I also thank all of my small group members at work for their continued prayers and support: Marianne Costales-Roman, Sue Grove, Shawna Paplaski, Liz Sylvia, and Jen Vergara. I am very thankful for Kids' City at my church and for the many the leaders for my twins' class, Miss Bonnie, Miss Shannon, and Miss Cameron, and for Miss Diana, who runs my two-year-old's Kids' City room.


I have to thank my husband, Jason MacDonald. I was able to quote him in sections of this manuscript, due to his master’s degree in biomechanics (movement) and sport psychology and how these areas pertain to ADHD. He also entertained our three little girls on many occasions so I was able to write in peace; he let me escape to Starbucks regularly to get some quiet time to write!


I thank my friends and family, especially my mom and dad, for always welcoming us into their homes and loving my children unconditionally.


There are some people mentioned in my book who I also have to thank: Sue Balius, Flo Gutierrez, Dan Jones, Chuck Pickerill, and Jen Walsh. I thank Chris Strahs for her continued mentoring and support of my girls!


I also am appreciative of the sources I did not know personally but quoted in my book. Many of them I contacted via email. They were all so helpful and kind. One of my sources even has a public community Facebook page:  Richard Cohen's "Zen and the Art of Early Childhood Education" page. Check it out!


I give thanks to a little girl with ADHD named Lauren. I worked with her from the time she was 5-14 yeras old at the YMCA. She inspired me daily, and I also thank her grandma for demonstrating how to parent a child with mental health issues. I continue to pray for Laruen while she's in heaven.  


I thank Balboa Press for the opporutnity to publish this work. My service coordinator was Stephanie Cornthwaite. My editor was Kathryn Robyn. My design coordinator and publishing services associate was Staci Kern, and my marketing consultant was Matt Haynes. WIthout these people, Toddlers & ADHD would not be possible!


I thank Dr. Anna Hammond, Psy.D., for recommending my twins’ psychiatrists, Dr. Charlene Brown, M.D. and Dr. Paula Gewarges, D.O. They are person-centered doctors who truly care about their patients. I thank the twins’ pediatrician, Dr. Pamela Huang, M.D. for her continued care for all three of my children. I thank Kim Yost, LCPC, for recommending the twins’ therapist, Jack Flight, LCSW, RDDP, CSOTS. He is well known for his work with young children. I thank all of my twins’ preschool staff members at Oswego School District #308 for their dedication to my girls: Miss Sue, Miss Tammy, Miss Jenn, Miss Elizabeth, Miss Elly, Miss Jackie, Miss Gina, Miss Missy, Miss Kari, and Mr. AJ. I thank my twins' gymnastics coach, Coach Gretchen, and their music teacher at Kinderjam, Miss Cyndi, for their patience and understanding. All of the professionals I have just listed- in medicine, mental health, and in education- continuously help my twin girls live more peaceful lives.


As a disclaimer, none of these people listed agree or disagree with anything on this website or in this book. Balboa press, the people I quote, reference, or acknowledge and thank are not responsible for any negative outcomes and treatment is at each person's own individual risk.
