Diagnosing ADHD/ADD in AdultsTop Rated For years, health professionals believed the signs and symptoms of ADHD vanished by the time a child became a teenager, with no long-lasting effects. Now they know that as many as two out of three children will continue to battle the disorder into adulthood. In addition, they are finding that an increasing number of adults who were misdiagnosed with other psychiatric conditions (such as a learning disability or attitude problem) or who went undiagnosed through childhood and adolescence actually have ADHD.
The ADHD e-BookTop Rated This free e-book on ADHD is fairly and empathically written by Martin L. Kutscher, MD, a pediatric neurologist. The book explains the full range of problems seen with ADHD, and summarizes the best treatment advise. An excellent and well-written set of chapters to help explain ADHD to others. http://www.pediatricneurology.com/adhd.htm -

Treatment of Attention Deficit Disorder It’s normal for parents to feel helpless and confused about the best ways to handle their child in these situations. Because kids with ADHD do not purposely decide to act up or not pay attention, traditional discipline—like spanking, yelling at, or calmly trying to reason with your son or daughter—usually does not work. Fortunately there are treatment options that can help alleviate the symptoms of ADHD and arm families with the tools needed to better handle problem behaviors when they arise. http://psychcentral.com/lib/treatment-of-attention-deficit-disorder/000258 -

What Is Attention Deficit Disorder? Since the early part of this century, doctors have ascribed an array of names to this constellation of behaviors—among them hyperkinesis, hyperactivity, minimal brain damage and minimal brain dysfunction. In the late 1970s, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) became the accepted term. According to the American Psychiatric Association’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-IV), ADHD is characterized by a “persistent pattern of inattention and/or hyperactivity or impulsivity that is more frequent and severe than is typically observed in individuals at a comparable level of development.” http://psychcentral.com/lib/what-is-attention-deficit-disorder/000254 -

Get NutMegged ADHD All about ADD / ADHD and OCD, with a positive (or at least comical) spin... with love from a nut named Meg. This blog is all about the things that make me tick, the struggles I face and the solutions I've discovered along the way. If I can share something, that I've learned through my struggles, that ends up helping you through yours, then it's all worth it.
Oh, we'll probably laugh at me a little, too. I wholeheartedly believe you gotta be able to laugh at yourself. So, suffer with me, but laugh with me also. Maybe we'll both learn something along the way. http://getnutmegged.com -
