The A.D.D. Book by William Sears

Dr. Bill Sears, author of The Baby Book, beloved pediatrician, and creator of attachment parenting, teams with Lynda Thompson, an expert on attention deficit disorder and a proponent of neurofeedback, to provide parents with a highly positive, helpful guide to understanding and assisting the ADD child. Sears and Thompson carefully describe the ADD childs particular cluster of neurological traits--some positive (creativity, spontaneity, hyperfocus) and some potentially negative (selective attention, distractibility, hyperactivity). They emphasize that all of these traits can, depending upon how they are perceived and shaped, work to a childs advantage or disadvantage.The authors provide insight into and an analysis of accurately diagnosing the ADD child, managing problem areas, and helping the child cope at school and at home. A thorough discussion about the use of stimulant drugs (Dr. Bill calls them focus pills) describes appropriate use and misuse, and stresses that the drugs should be used in combination with other, more holistic therapies. Thompsons expertise in neurofeedback is presented as an effective alternative therapy. At a time when many schools have lengthy Ritalin lines in front of the nurses office every day, Sears and Thompsons book is a welcome relief for parents looking for a wide scope of alternatives.--Ericka Lutz
