Keep taking the tablets? Evidence-based approaches to AD(H)D. Part 1: The evidence
MetadataShow full item record
Attention Deficit (Hyperactivity) Disorder (AD(H)D) has been recognised and treated in the United States for some considerable time. Until fairly recently the use of medication as a treatment within the United Kingdom was quite limited, and it is the move towards the increased use of medication which has sparked some of the present controversy. This has been fuelled by media reports, which are often themselves sensationalist and tend to take extreme positions. Some magazine reports, for example, have described the symptoms of AD(H)D in such broad terms that much of the child population could be described as fitting these criteria.
