Intro Sample...


In the 1990's a growing number of ADD experts began to view ADD not so much as a disorder, but instead a natural condition which leaves ADDers at a disadvantage in some common modern settings, and many positive attributes became associated with ADD, such as creativity, enthusiasm and entrepreneurial tendencies. This is probably due in part to the ever expanding world of ADDers. A few decades ago only the most dysfunctional hyperactive kids were identified as "disordered" and these kids were more likely to suffer from actual brain injury. Today, the diagnostic criteria are so broad that millions of children in the U.S. are getting the label. Any underachiever who doesn't seem to pay attention in school or who has trouble handing in finished homework is fair game for a diagnosis. I spoke to one teenager who was diagnosed ADD even though her grade point average had never been below a 3.85 (taking Ritalin allowed her to achieve a 4.0). I also spoke to a psychiatrist who routinely prescribed Ritalin to "C" students in an effort to improve their grade point average. View More »
