assails decades-old assumptions and presents an up-to-date, science-based understanding of this disorder that causes significant impairment and considerable suffering for about 8% to 10% of children and at least 5% of adults.
Designed for the layperson, as well as for clinicians, the book offers science-based answers in plain, understandable language to questions such as the following: Why are those with ADD/ADHD able to focus very well on a few tasks in which they have strong interest but are unable to focus adequately on many other tasks they recognize as important? How is ADHD like having erectile dysfunction of the mind? Is medication treatment for ADHD more or less risky than its not being treated with medicine?
Both down-to-earth and cutting-edge, Outside the Box: Rethinking ADD/ADHD in Children and Adults A Practical Guide highlights multiple perspectives on how this disorder affects children and adults who suffer from it, as well as those who love and care for them.
