Information for Professionals on ADD (ADHD)

Remember when we talked about "hyperkenisis" as if the primary issue in what we now call ADD (ADHD) was hyperacitivity? Remember when most professionals thought that only boys were affected? Remember when we thought children "outgrew" ADD (ADHD)? Remember when there were only one or two medications used to treat ADD (ADHD)?

We now know is that ADD (ADHD) is a very complex disorder that is often accompanied by other conditions - requiring a careful differential diagnosis and a complex treatment approach. ADD (ADHD) is the most highly researched childhood psychiatric disorder, and research on adults is now growing rapidly. As a busy professional, it's hard to keep up.

We are Kathleen Nadeau, Ph.D. (clinical psychologist) and Patricia Quinn, M.D., (developmental pediatrician), both professionals who have focused for many years on the diagnosis and treatment of ADD (ADHD) and related disorders.

Bookmark this site and come back often. We will continue to add articles on new or controversial topics, books that will help you stay up to date in treating this complex disorder, and links to other ADD (ADHD) resources.
