Jump to: navigation search
A syndrome, usually diagnosed in childhood, characterized by a persistent pattern of impulsiveness, a short attention span, and often hyperactivity, and interfering especially with academic, occupational, and social performance (American Heritage Dictionary). Also commonly referred to as ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder) or ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder). According to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, there are three types of ADHD and ADD (NIMH). Predominantly hyperactive-impulsive type: Students of this type have difficulty sitting still, standing in line, waiting their turn. They may blurt out answers, have difficulty modulating their emotions, and say things that are inappropriate. Students of this type may or may not have difficulties with paying attention, however, hyperactivity makes it hard for them to do so. Predominantly inattentive type: Students who are of the inattentive type are easily distracted, have a hard time focusing, paying attention to details, and often make careless mistakes. They may be very disorganized, have a hard time following instructions, and forgetful, e.g. leaving school without books or assignments. Students of this type are not hyperactive; they may appear to be daydreamers who are distracted by irrelevant stimuli, such as sounds, objects in the room, or other students talking.

Yes, there probably are some individuals who have received medication when some other treatment might have been better. On the other hand, there are probably others who were not been diagnosed for years and could have benefited from medication. Finally, even if someone has attention deficit disorder (ADHD) and is on medication, is it the best medication, dosage and timing?

    The U.S. school system was modeled after German schools created in the 1800's for the express purpose of producing obedient soldiers and factory workers (This is true! I've read it in many different good sources). The German system was extremely successful in achieving its goal in Germany and was therefore copied by other countries, including the U.S. The great American tycoons and Robber Barons were big supporters of the German system in America since they wanted literate but obedient factory workers. Our schools are operated pretty much the same way today in the 1990's as they were back when Thomas Edison was kicked out for being "addled." Creativity and independent thought and action were discouraged because such traits were problematic in a war or a factory. Today these traits interfere with our cookie cutter, mass production educational system; a bureaucratic system which is unable to change itself. "Somewhere between the ages of eleven and fifteen, the average child begins to suffer from an atrophy, the paralysis of curiosity and the suspension of the power to observe. The trouble I should judge to lie with the schools." - Thomas Edison.

    About this site:
    Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is the most commonly diagnosed childhood disorder in the United States and is amongst the most diagnosed childhood disorders in Australia, Canada and New Zealand. Around the world, people are trying to come to terms with the growth in drug use to treat young people with socially unacceptable behaviour. Why has it occurred W hy is it necessary W hat does it mean for the future? Controversy rages over the suitability of using drugs to treat the disorder. Despite a disorder being by definition a physical difference that causes social problems, solely medical explanations and treatment have dominated the history of ADHD. If we only ask medical questions about ADHD, we will only get medical answers and more or less drug treatment. However, if we also ask educational , political and cultural questions, we will gain a better understanding of ADHD and identify barriers to the success of current ADHD interventions.

    BACKGROUND - ARTICLE BELOW ] Fish oil is high in Omega-3 fatty acids, the substance which makes up about 1/3 of our brains and nervous systems. So is all seafood, from the cold waters of the sea, and particularly so sardines, herring, trout, salmon, halibut, albacore, shrimp, clams, light chunk tuna, catfish and cod. Essentially, all fish and seafood with 'dark' meat are particularly high in Omega-3 fatty acids - and in addition, all seafood also contains the complete range of the 72 natural trace elements, which is another major - and crucially vital - factor for our mental and physical health [ see SUPREME HEALTH in these pages ].

    Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder

    Arthur Buchanan
    2e7d Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), is a condition that becomes apparent in some children in the preschool and early school years. It is hard for these children to control their behavior and/or pay attention. It is estimated that between 3 and 5 percent of children have ADHD, or approximately 2 million children in the United States. This means that in a classroom of 25 to 30 children, it is likely that at least one will have ADHD. ADHD was first described by Dr. Heinrich Hoffman in 1845. A physician who wrote books on medicine and psychiatry, Dr. Hoffman was also a poet who became interested in writing for children when he couldn't find suitable materials to read to his 3-year-old son. The result was a book of poems, complete with illustrations, about children and their characteristics. The Story of Fidgety Philip was an accurate description of a little boy who had attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.

    • Impaired concentration, distractibility, impulsivity Overactivity/hyperactivity/underactivity and variations Procrastination, disorganization, boredom
    In an attempt to capture the basic essence of ADD in children, Dr. Paul H. Wender (1987), an outstanding clinical researcher, lists and describes the following additional characteristics:
    • Attention-demanding behavior of an insatiable quality School difficulties related to dyslexia, Learning Disabilities (LD), or the recently named Specific Development Disorder (SDD) Impairment in balance and coordination, including fine and gross motor incoordination, often resulting in handwriting and eye tracking difficulties Resistant and domineering social behavior, which has three distinct characteristics:
      • a resistance to obey social demands: "do's," "don'ts," "should's" and "shouldn'ts". increased independence, i.e., those with ADD often tolerate separation anxiety exceptionally well when very young
