kara-tamaniniHi!!  My name is Kara T. Tamanini and I hold a Master’s degree in Clinical Psychology from Barry University.  I have worked in the mental health field for the past eighteen years and work primarily with children and adolescents. 

I work with a variety of children who are struggling with a variety of issues.  I have developed this site to provide parents and teachers with information on most of the childhood mental disorders. 

My first book, Understanding my ADHD, is a children’s book written in language that children are able to understand and is to help children understand what ADHD is and its symptoms.  I feel that children should be made aware of what is happening to them, as awareness brings understanding and with that we can work towards a solution.

My second book, I Promised Not to Tell, has been written in order to promote awareness of child abuse for children and to facilitate reporting of any type of abuse. 

My Kids Awareness Series has been developed to bring understanding of the disorders to everyone and together we can help your child.  My series will eventually include information on more than just ADHD and will include information on Child Abuse, Autism, Asperger’s Disorder, Bulimia, Anorexia, Oppositional Defiant Disorder, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, and information on children of divorced parents. 

I have built this site to help parents by providing them accurate information and to bring awareness to children and adults and to help children succeed in their life.
