Présentation de l'éditeur

For over 100 years, ADHD has been seen as essentially a behavior disorder. Recent scientific research has developed a new paradigm which recognizes ADHD as a developmental disorder of the cognitive management system of the brain, its executive functions. This cutting-edge book pulls together key ideas of this new understanding of ADHD, explaining them and describing in understandable language scientific research that supports this new model. It addresses questions like:

- Why can those with ADHD focus very well on some tasks while having great difficulty in focusing on other tasks they recognize as important?

- How does brain development and functioning of persons with ADHD differ from others?

- How do impairments of ADHD change from childhood through adolescence and in adulthood?

- What treatments help to improve ADHD impairments? How do they work? Are they safe?

- Why do those with ADHD have additional emotional, cognitive, and learning disorders more often than most others?

- What commonly-held assumptions about ADHD have now been proven wrong by scientific research?

Psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, and other medical and mental health professionals, as well as those affected by ADHD and their families, will find this to be am insightful and invaluable resource.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Smart and Modern 23 mai 2013
Par Mike M - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Having lived with ADHD since childhood, and paid some attention to available understandings and research over the years, this book is a vital resource to cut through the clutter. There is so much lazy information floating in popular culture about ADHD that the actual science behind the disorder often gets buried under assumptions, stigmas and myths. Brown is clearly attuned to this, and gives readers an accessible update on exactly what ADHD is and isn't.

Those like me who have ADHD along with another diagnosed disorder (anxiety, autism spectrum, etc.) will find his writing towards the latter half of the book about comorbidities especially useful. It was a quick read that's not as dense as one would expect. For professionals and self-aware readers who deal with their own ADHD or ADHD in the lives of loved ones, I really can't recommend it highly enough.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great Book with wonderful insight 6 septembre 2013

I like the new outlook and the expressed clear understanding of the disorder. As a long time sufferer of ADD I take great solace in understanding why I am the way I am and particularly how to deal with it. This book permits me to stop beating myself up for what I now know does not represent the real me. I would recommend this book to anyone suffering with the disorder or attempting to relate to someone with the disorder. Knowledge helps live a better life.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A New Understanding of ADHD in Children and Adults 26 mai 2013
Par Katrin Tazza - Publié sur
Format: Broché
This book is a must read for anyone whose life is impacted by ADHD. Ater seeing therapists for at least 15 years, I realized I had ADHD at the age of 57. Dr. Brown's book helped me understand all the manifestations that I suffered with all my life . Shortly after diagnosis I started taking stimulant medications, which helped control some of
the manifestations of ADHD. I wish this book and this knowledge was around when I was 7.

Dr. Brown truly gives an in depth yet accessible (and accurate) portrayal of ADD. Most helpful in making sense of ADD, as well as creating realistic and achievable expectations for the patient as well as the care-giver. A must read for all who live with ADD!

Dr. Brown has written another highly informative book on executive functioning. I found his inclusion of autism spectrum disorders and ADHD to be very helpful.
