Ebook on ADHD & ADD 101, Information on Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder

From the ebook:

ADHD has been written about by many professionals. This eBook is not another medical or technical explanation of the disorder, but rather the firsthand experiences of someone who has overcome ADHD in his lifetime. This book is about what has worked for me, my friends, and my family members, revealing the techniques and tips we have used to become successful and fulfilled, allowing us to live with ADHD. There will not be a surplus of complex medical terms, charts, or graphs; all that will be found herein is a personal examination of a learning disorder that can, in fact, be overcome.


To begin, I would like to reiterate; ADHD can be overcome. It cannot be outgrown. It is not an impossible foe, nor a completely damning diagnosis to receive. In my experience, ADHD is usually managed in one of three ways. The first is medication, sometimes even overmedication to the point that the patient is “burnt out” or emotionally vacant. This can come from either prescription or illegal drugs, but the end result is the same. The second means of treating ADHD is finding ways to stay busy and to outlet the patient’s energies. And finally, the third method is one of using natural means to calm and relax the individual. Because I am not a big fan of the foremost method in any aspect, I intend to cover the other two from this point onward.

First, so what is ADHD?

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a growing concern in our nation as the prevalence of this diagnosis increases among our youth. According to the American Psychiatric Association’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM-IV), ADHD is a psychological disorder generally characterized by the following symptoms: inattention, distractibility, impulsivity, and/or hyperactivity.  Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder is also known as Hyperactivity or Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD). ADD is also primarily characterized by  hyperactivity. ADHD affects about 3 to 5 percent of children globally and is diagnosed in about 2 to 16 percent of school aged children. Children with an ADHD diagnosis are the largest group of children referred to mental health services.
