Controversy about ADHD is everywhere. In the popular media and even among medical professionals there are questions and accusations about its existence. Some argue ADHD is a made-up disorder invented by "big pharma" or the result of lackadaisical parenting. Others offer simple cures: buy their vitamin and supplement plan or avoid sugar and all will be well. The truth is that ADHD is real, and while this brain disorder can pose serious challenges, it need not impose any permanent limitations. With proper diagnosis and treatment, those with ADHD can be just as successful in school, work, and social settings as they would have been without it--and some even more so. Accessible, reassuring, and grounded in scientific research, "The Energetic Brain" offers parents, teachers, and adults with ADHD expert advice on: what ADHD is (and is not); how it is best treated and managed; why ADHD is so often misdiagnosed; how diagnosis should be done; how to solve learning and social problems; the legal rights of those with ADHD; and more. The authors steer clear of fads and offer proven skills to harness "the energetic brain" to promote success in all aspects of life. Praise for "The Energetic Brain" "Easygoing, kind, and hopeful... Reading "The Energetic Brain" is like having a knowledgeable, wise friend who understands what you are going through and, what's more, knows how to help you in an unassuming manner." --From the foreword by Sally E. Shaywitz, M.D., author, "Overcoming Dyslexia" "An important new work that stands apart from the hundreds of books on this topic. The Energetic Brain... has moved to number one on my short list of recommended readings for patients and professionals on this topic." --Sam Goldstein, Ph.D., editor-in-chief, Journal of "Attention Disorders" Foreword by Sally E. Shaywitz, M.D., author of "Overcoming Dyslexia"
