Editorial Reviews

"Studies find that ADHD affects three to ten percent of the school-age population, making it the most common psychiatric diagnosis in children. Treating it with Ritalin and other stimulants remains both common and controversial. With a stream of books and videos touting unproven 'cures,' thepublication of [this] accessible, scientifically based [title] is particularly welcome. Wender, one of the first advocates of using stimulant medication for hyperactivity, emphasizes that ADHD is a lifelong problem for many sufferers and that many ADHD adults would benefit from stimulant treatment."--Mary Ann Hughes, Neill P.L., Pullman, WA, Library Journal
