Product Description

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is one of the most rapidly growing diagnosis of our generation. Often the diagnosis fails to provide real help, leaving patients, doctors, and families at a loss. For the first time ever, new insights into the overwhelming number of similarities between autism and ADHD are giving those with ADHD real hope. For years, the label of autism has carried a negative connotation. Parents have been afraid to admit the diagnosis and banished the term from discussion. Finally, this guide for parents and professionals provides a reason to embrace autism with a new sense of hope and understanding.

Publisher's Description

At last, long-awaited answers to the questions you’ve been asking. Help for frustrated ADHD patients and their families. (As well as those with autism, PDD, Asperger’s syndrome, and other related conditions.)

Attention deficit/hyperactive disorder (ADHD) is one of the most rapidly growing diagnoses of our generation. Often the diagnosis fails to provide real help, leaving patients, doctors, and families at a loss to know what to do next. But for the first time ever, new insights into the overwhelming number of similarities between Autism and ADHD are giving those with ADHD genuine hope.

For years, the label of Autism has carried a negative connotation. Parents were afraid to admit the diagnosis and banished the term from discussion. Finally, The ADHD-Autism Connection gives parents, educators, and doctors a reason to embrace autism with a renewed sense of hope and understanding. This book will show how these understandings can minimize the frustration, misdiagnoses, and misunderstandings ADHD sufferers and their families face.
