Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Focusing on Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) as a life-long neurological problem that affects adults as well as children, this definitive book describes the various forms ADD takes, how professionals distinguish ADD patterns from "unacceptable" behavior, and how medication and behavior modification techniques can balance its negative and positive aspects.

Synopsis:

Through vivid stories of the experiences of their patients (both adults and children), Drs. Hallowell and Ratey show the varied forms ADD takes — from the hyperactive search for high stimulation to the floating inattention of daydreaming — and the transforming impact of precise diagnosis and treatment.
