What this ADD/ADHD page is about . . .

Attention Deficit Disorder (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) is a difference in brain functioning that can have disastrous consequences in our society if undiagnosed and untreated. It can also be a blessing when recognized. It is not an easy diagnosis. Only a trained and experienced professional should attempt such a diagnosis. The information on this site is not a substitute for such work. This site is to give the public, those who have ADD, as well as those who live and work with them more information. Unfortunately there are a number of myths about ADD, some shared by health care professionals.

Zametkin's brain scan images from NIMH publication on Attention Deficit Hyperactivity DisorderResearch on brain functioning has blossomed in this decade and unfortunately many health care providers who are very professional and very well-meaning are not up-to-date in this narrow area. They may miss ADD in assessing a situation or may diagnose it when there is another cause for the symptoms.

Therefore, it is important that people trying to find out if their problems can be attributed to this condition go to a health care provider who has extensive training and experience in treating ADD. For adults, it is important to find someone with this experience with adult ADD. To this end, I am trying to put together a list of local health care providers who are experienced in the treatment and care of ADD. (I don't have anyone on the list yet.)

Quote of the moment:

My candle burns at both ends;
It will not last the night;
But ah, my foes, and oh, my friends -
It gives a lovely light!
