An estimated 20 percent of boys and up to 8 percent of girls have attention deficit disorder -- a condition marked by distractibility, short attention span, impulsiveness, and hyperactivity. Many physicians routinely prescribe Ritalin, an amphetamine-like drug, to modify the behavior of A.D.D. children. But as Dr. William Sears and child psychologist Lynda Thompson explain, drug therapy is not the only way to approach A.D.D.Drawing on the latest research findings and their own experiences with A.D.D. children, Sears and Thompson show that these kids actually possess certain read advantages: tenacity, energy, creativity, spontaneity, and the ability to hyperfocus. They offer a state-of William the-art self-help approach to A.D.D. that will help parents reduce or eliminate the need for Lynda drugs -- including cutting-edge neurofeedback techniques and learning strategies that empower A.D.D. children and teach them how to cope.Full of real-life case histories, this landmark guide is an indispensable resource for every parent with an A.D.D. child -- and the only book available that focuses on the positive side of A.D.D.
