Why the ADHD Blog
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder continues to remain a controversial diagnosis despite the fact that millions of children, adolescents and adults are diagnosed with ADHD. The goal of this blog is to offer a forum in which issues involving ADHD can be discussed in a thoughtful manner. The Blog will focus primarily on the 4 topics or issues listed in the right sidebar. Please click on each topic for the most recent posts involving these areas.
My hope is that this blog can provide a reasoned approach to the discussion of these issues, one that is based on research and theory, rather than on opinion and anecdote. Over time, I will update and add posts regarding: the nature of ADHD (what the disorder is/how to conceptualize ADHD); how to best assess ADHD; and the most effective approaches for treating ADHD. I will also continue to examine controversies involving ADHD.
