Medical treatment for ADHD fails far too often not because of the drugs themselves, but how they are managed. New ADHD Medication Rules deals with the over medication, missed diagnoses, and imbalanced medical treatments used today in the treatment of ADHD. Dr. Parker shows where and how these imbalances occur, provides the data and explanations for why the treatment is incorrect, and then simplifies and explains the proper methods for dealing with ADHD, both for medical practitioner and parents of kids and adults with ADHD. In the only book of its kind, Dr. Charles Parker clearly explains how these uncertainties happen, and how insightful communication with professionals can dramatically improve treatment using available methods assembled from hard data, clinical experience and laboratory research.
