Editors: Russell Thompson and Naomi J. Miller
Book Description:
Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is conceptualized as a neurobehavioral condition that is characterized by developmentally inappropriate levels of inattention, impulsivity and motor overactivity. It is estimated to be present in 3-7% of school-aged populations and can result in significant impairment in academic, social and family functioning. In this book, the authors present current research in the study of the cognitive symptoms, genetics and treatment outcomes of ADHD. Topics discussed include the disadvantages and benefits of stimulant treatment; a discussion on whether professions differ in their beliefs about the causes and treatments of ADHD; motor coordination dysfunction in ADHD; nutrition optimization in the multimodal treatment of ADHD; and the relation between sluggish cognitive tempo and ADHD.
