Overview

Answering questions logically and systematically, Attention Deficit Disorder: Practical Coping Methods eliminates the confusion common among professionals treating this disorder. The book reflects the authors' belief that ADD represents a very complex syndrome that requires very specific diagnosis, including identification not only of specific attentional symptoms but also of the other accompanying issues. He elucidates an integrated approach to treatment that uses medication and coping mechanisms to address the specific problems and understand the emotional issues that may prevent the child, adolescent, or adult from working to his or her full potential.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Combines personal and professional experience, research, and other sources to clarify the disordered information floating around the health professions about the disorder. Addresses such questions as why Ritalin does and does not work, why ADD is not just a childhood disorder, why the disorder with hyperactivity is being over-diagnoses, and why people diagnosed and medicated are so often not cured.
