Overview

ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) - and its treatment with the drug Ritalin - has become the focus of one of the most hotly debated health issues of the 1990s, with the controversy taking center stage in media accounts all over the country. But for the thousands of families of ADHD children, adolescents, and adults, it remains painfully difficult to get clear and authoritative answers to the many questions that this confusing disorder poses. Beyond Ritalin is based on hundreds of sources and over thirty years of research, and is the first book to explain in complete detail exactly how Ritalin affects individuals' social and organizational skills, distractibility, activity level, academic performance, and other areas of behavior. The authors of Beyond Ritalin, who are acknowledged experts on attention deficit disorders, provide a complete road map and guide for coping with ADHD.
