Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The book that answers your questions about ADD—now revised and updated 

 

After decades of being unfairly diagnosed, children and adults with attention deficit disorder are now recognized as having a common and treatable neurological condition. Drs. Hallowell and Ratey answer the questions most frequently asked at their nationwide workshops and seminars, resulting in an easy-to-read reference that covers every aspect of the disorder: from identifying symptoms and diagnosis, to the latest treatment options, as well as practical day-to-day advice on how you or a loved one can live a normal life with ADD. 

 

Whether you are a patient, parent, teacher, or health-care professional, Answers to Distraction will help those whose ADD has caused persistent problems in school, at work, and in relationships.  

 

Q&As include:

<ul><li>What is the single most important scientific finding about ADD in the last decade? </li><li>How early can ADD be diagnosed? </li><li>Where can a parent get support for dealing with a child who has ADD? </li><li>What advances in the field of medication have taken place since the original version of this book was published?</li></ul>

 

Synopsis:

In Driven to Distraction, Drs.  Hallowell and Ratey revealed why millions of  adults and children are chronic underachievers, caught  up in persistent problems in school, at work, and  at home. The cause is not lack of  self-discipline, but, rather, an inborn neurological condition,  Attention Deficit Disorder, or  ADD.

Answers To Distraction provides  practical solutions to the dilemmas of ADD. This  "user's guide" to ADD is presented in  question-and-answer format ideal for even the most  distractible reader. Each chapter covers a specific  aspect of ADD, such as ADD in women, ADD and  aggression, ADD and addiction, or ADD and work. The  authors provide advice for teachers on recognizing ADD  and helping students to cope, plus extraordinary  insights into the relationship difficulties caused  by ADD.
