Written by a leading child psychiatrist and researcher, this book covers not just excessive activity, but all the symptoms exhibited by ADD patients and demonstrates how the disorder can change with age. Parents, teachers, psychologists, and medical professionals will learn about the causes and characteristics of ADD, how ADD differs from learning disability, where to seek help, the kind and reliability of diagnostic tests, and the different approaches to treatment. A special feature of the book is its coverage of the occurrence of ADD in adults, an area of research previously open only to specialists.
