ADHD is characterised by learning and behavioural problems including short attention span, impulsivity, hyperactivity and impairments in perceptual, language and motor skills. Between 4-10 per cent of school-age children are believed to have it with boys outnumbering girls 2-3 to one. An adult form is also now recognised. The symptoms of Attention Deficit Disorder are caused by a neurological dysfunction within the brain. The underlying physiological mechanism which causes Attention Deficit Disorder is still not thoroughly understood and remains under intense scientific study. It is presumed that brain chemistry is out of balance and that specific chemicals called neurotransmitters may be lacking in individuals with Attention Deficit Disorder. Leading-edge research from around the world is presented in this new volume.

ADHD (attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder) is now recognized as one of the most common causes of learning and behavioural difficulties in school-aged children. Symptoms may include poor concentration, forgetfulness, poor organization, impulsivity, restlessness, poor social skills, learning difficulties, low self-esteem, and defiant behaviour. Despite growing awareness of ADHD among parents and health professionals, it is still widely misunderstood. This second edition of ADHD: The Facts provides information on how ADHD is diagnosed, on conventional medical and alternative therapies, and on ways of helping children to improve their own behaviour, self-esteem, and academic results. Written by an experienced paedtiatrician, this book features practical advice to help parents understand their child's difficulties and how to overcome them. With detailed explanations of the cause of ADHD, its nature, and the treatments of the condition that have proved effective over time, this new edition includes developments in the understanding of conditions that often co-exist with it, as well as the problems experienced by adults with ADHD. ADHD: The Facts will be of invaluable assistance to parents of children with ADHD and to teachers, psychologists, speech therapists, occupational therapists, and doctors wanting an authoritative, up-to-date, and practical review of the condition.

Worldwide longitudinal studies performed since the 1970s have clearly shown that ADHD persists into adulthood. These findings have stimulated researchers to develop the therapeutic approaches for adult patients, especially in European countries where scientific and clinical interest in ADHD has increased.. In this volume, leading experts from Europe and the United States present their long-term results in order to provide an overview of important aspects of ADHD across the lifespan. These results include epidemiology, neurobiology, psychopathology, longitudinal course, comorbidity and social impairment associated with ADHD. Topics include diagnostic problems and therapeutic options as well as molecular genetic studies. Further, morphological and functional imaging studies in adult ADHD are reviewed, as well as the very important issue of comorbidity. Providing an excellent source of up-to-date information, this publication is essential reading for psychiatrists, neurologists, geneticists, psychotherapists, physicians and other therapists working with ADHD patients.

"In a discussion of ADHD treatments, Wender and Tomb stress that drug therapy remains the most effective in treating the disorder. They add, however, that psychological techniques, when combined with medication, can produce further improvement. Wender and Tomb offer practical, comprehensive instructions on how parents of an ADHD sufferer can best help their child. Now a classic work, ADHD grants parents and adults whose lives have been touched by this disorder an indispensable source of help, hope, and understanding"--

Examensarbeit aus dem Jahr 2003 im Fachbereich Padagogik - Padagogische Psychologie, Note: 1,3, Universitat zu Koln (Heilpadagogische Psychologie), 119 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Hyperaktives und impulsives Verhalten sowie eine Storung der Aufmerksamkeit sind die zentralen Merkmale einer Aufmerksamkeitsdefizit- und Hyperaktivitatsstorung (ADHS) bei Kindern und Themengegenstand zahlreicher wissenschaftlicher Diskussionen. Es gibt kaum Elternfachzeitschriften, die das Thema "ADHS" noch nicht behandelt haben. Denn es besteht die Tatsache, dass die Thematik mehr denn je hoch aktuell ist und immer mehr Eltern, Lehrer und Erzieher sich von diesen Kindern und deren problematischen Verhaltensweisen stark belastet fuhlen. Jedoch erhalt man immer noch die unterschiedlichsten Informationen daruber, wie sich das Phanomen angeblich erklaren lasst. Sehr oft werden Fehlinformationen verbreitet, die dann zu grossem Unwissen und ebensolcher Unsicherheit fuhren. Die Erklarungsansatze zur Entstehung von ADHS reichen von zu viel Fernsehkonsum uber eine "schlechte" Erziehung bis hin zu einer falschen Ernahrung. Dabei sind die Besonderheiten der Storung schon seit langem bekannt und zahlreiche wissenschaftliche Veroffentlichungen berichten einerseits daruber, welche Auswirkungen eine Aufmerksamkeits- und Hyperaktivitatsstorung mit falscher Unterstutzung auf die Entwicklung der Kinder haben, aber andererseits auch wie man sie gezielt fordern kann (vgl. Aust-Claus, Hammer 2002, 16). In Kapitel 2 dieser Arbeit erfolgt zunachst eine Definition des Begriffs "ADHS," um hinterher eine Einordnung anhand der diagnostischen Klassifikationssysteme DSM-IV und der ICD-10 vornehmen zu konnen. Anschliessend werden potentielle Ursachen (neurobiologische, psychosoziale) fur die Entsehung von Aufmerksamkeitsstorungen diskutiert. Weiterhin soll u.a. das Erscheinungsbild des ADHS-Kindes in der Schule naher dargestellt werden, da die Verhaltenssymptome dort zum uberwiegenden

ADHD haunts children into adulthood," claimed a headline in USA TODAY, the Nation's No. 1 Newspaper. The inability to focus, sit still, or complete tasks makes it very difficult for people with attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) to succeed in school and work. Their behavior can also be disruptive to those around them. Some of the symptoms of ADHD may disappear over time. But many people must cope with the effects of the disorder their entire lives. According to the Attention Deficit Disorder Association, ADHD affects 6 to 10 percent of children and 3 to 6 percent of adults in the United States. The good news is that people with ADHD who receive treatment and support are able to live normal, productive lives. In this book, you'll find valuable information about ADHD to help you or someone close to you. Case studies offer you a glimpse into the lives of people with ADHD and their families. You'll also learn about the causes and effects of ADHD, treatment options and alternatives, support groups and other organizations that can help, and more.
