Welcch clarifies the physical and spiritual dimensions of ADD. He offers parents-as well as adults who fit the profile-help, encouragement, and biblical wisdom on how to handle this condition.
An estimated 20 percent of boys and up to 8 percent of girls have attention deficit disorder--a condition marked by distractibility, short attention span, impulsiveness, and hyperactivity. Many physicians routinely prescribe Ritalin, an amphetamine-like drug, to modify the behavior of ADD children. But as Dr. William Sears and child psychologist Lynda Thompson explain, drug therapy is not the only way to approach A.D.D. Drawing on the latest research findings and their own experiences with ADD children, Sears and Thompson show that these kids actually possess certain real advantages: tenacity, energy, creativity, spontaneity, and the ability to hyperfocus. They offer a state-of-the-art self-help approach to ADD that will help parents reduce or eliminate the need for drugs--including cutting-edge neurofeedback techniques and learning strategies that empower ADD children and teach them how to cope. Full of real-life case histories, this landmark guide is an indispensable resource for every parent with an ADD child--and the only book available that focuses on the positive side of ADD.
