"Through vivid stories and case histories of patients--both adults and children ... [the authors] explore the varied forms ADHD takes, from hyperactivity to daydreaming.

I picked this book up years ago because of the title. Since then I have read about the controversy of the experts & self-diagnosis, but the stories in this book opened our eyes up to issues we were dealing with. We were able to understand that the struggles with ADD symptoms were common. It was a major breakthrough. ( )

Considered the most current reference for defining Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) from childhood through adulthood. ( )

For those with undiagnosed ADHD, this book is a life changer. ( )

Stories of ADHD from families together with information on diagnosis, family life, treatment and sub-types. Readable and full of hope.

This is the book that jumpstarted the change in thinking about AD/HD: its causes, symptoms and how to deal with the condition. This is the book that you're referred to if you think you or someone you know might be AD/HD -- the cornerstone of discovery, so to speak. Well written, well researched, and with enough individual stories to keep the conversation interesting. ( )

We gratefully dedicate this book to seven teachers of ours, seven psychiatrists who shared with each other a liveliness of mind, an independence of thought, a love of the work, and an appreciation of play.

They taught us to listen and to see.

Doris Menzer Benaron, Jules Bemporad, William Beuscher, Thomas Gutheil, Leston Havens, Allan Hobson, and Irvin Taube all gave of themselves much more than this small dedication can acknowledge. During their years of teaching at the Massachusetts Mental Health Center in Boston, they taught us to connect with the patient, person-to-person. They taught us to look for the heart of the patient, to look for the sorrow and for the joy. We thank them from our own hearts.

PREFACE
A Personal Perspective
I have attention deficit disorder (ADD).
Citat
Information från den engelska sidan med allmänna fakta. Redigera om du vill anpassa till ditt språk.
That’s the problem with being an adult: people have already made up their minds about us; we’ve even made up our minds about ourselves.
A streak of Puritanism runs deep within American society. Permissive and pioneering as we may be on the one hand, we are strict and conservative on the other. As much as we may be a country of mavericks and entrepreneurs, we are also a country of finger waggers and name-callers. As much as we may be a country of compassion for the underdog, we are also a country that believes in self-reliance.
It is the lack of balance, the dysregulation of the body’s neurobiological system, that impairs one’s ability to pay selective attention to one’s surroundings. The world becomes a land without street signs, the individual a car in bad need of a tune-up. The vastness of the attentional system partially accounts for the variation of ADD “types.” Where one individual needs an oil change, the next needs spark plugs replaced. Where one individual is withdrawn and overwhelmed by stimuli, the next is hyperactive and can’t get enough stimuli. Where one is frequently anxious, the other is depressed. To compensate, each develops his or her own coping strategies that developmentally add to, or subtract from, the brain’s various subsystems. So Mr. A becomes a stand-up comedian, and manic. Ms. B becomes an architectural wizard with obsessive-compulsive traits. Their offspring become a sculptor and a stunt pilot. None of them can balance their checkbook. And all of them wish they had more time in the day.
I also see how essential a comprehensive treatment plan is, a plan that incorporates education, understanding, empathy, structure, coaching, a plan for success and physical exercise as well as medication. I see how important the human connection is every step of the way: connection with parent or spouse; with teacher or supervisor; with friend or colleague; with doctor, with therapist, with coach, with the world “out there.” In fact, I see the human connection as the single most powerful therapeutic force in the treatment of ADHD.
What Mrs. Eldredge has just said gives a pretty good short description of ADD: You don’t mean to do the things you do do, and you don’t do the things you mean to do.
