Attention Deficit Disorder: Diagnosis and Treatment from Infancy to Adulthood
Finally, here is a book that examines Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and its impact over the life span. Most of the published literature and media coverage has focused on ADD in childhood, with debates centering on the use of various medications in its treatment. Now, Patricia O. Quinn, M.D., looks beyond this narrow perspective to consider diagnosis and treatment at every developmental stage, from infancy through adulthood. As demands, challenges, and choices change over time, so too do the meanings and the markers of ADD. Dr. Quinn's presentation will help you to understand and to negotiate the transitions of a lifetime. Inside you will find an in-depth discussion of the causes of ADD; a detailed analysis of the course of ADD at every life stage; up-to-date information about the use of medication in therapy; an investigation into non-drug approaches to treatment; an important review of the legal issues and rights of every person with ADD; and behavioral checklists, reader questionnaires, and ADD resource lists. For clinicians, this book will serve as a comprehensive overview of ADD. For others, whose lives are touched by this disorder, the knowledge that it provides will make them strong, supported and informed for learning how to better live with ADD.
