Overview:

AD/HD for Dummies : Sound advice for parents whose kids have trouble concentrating According to the National Institutes of Health, an estimated five to ten percent of children suffer from Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), and other learning disabilities; three to five percent of adults are affected. Yet some researchers estimate that a quarter or more of children diagnosed with these disorders don't actually have them. And controversies continue to swirl over the use (and abuse) of Ritalin, the drug most often prescribed to treat ADD and ADHD. What's a parent--or an adult sufferer--to do? This book provides the answers. Written in a friendly, easy-to-understand style, it helps parents understand when high spirits, rambunctious behavior, and an inability to focus may be signs of ADD or ADHD--and how to get help. The book offers an authoritative, balanced overview of drug and non-drug therapies for both disorders--and shows parents, and sufferers alike, how to work with physicians and mental health professionals to make the best choices.
