Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder is Not Related to I.Q.


It's important to know that Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and Intelligence, as measured by I.Q., are two different things.

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder: Neurologically Based


Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder is a neurologically based disorder.

Intro to Being an ADHD Parent


In my fifteen years of private practice working with children with ADHD, one of the common concerns that I observed by parents was the fear that they had done something, or failed to do something, that caused their child's ADHD. I guess it is normal to blame yourself when your child is having problems.

What Is Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder?


Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder is a medical condition. It is caused by genetic factors that result in certain neurological differences. Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder comes in various forms, and there are five or six different types of ADHD.

How Big of a Problem is Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder?


Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder - "ADD" or "ADHD" - affects between five to ten percent (5% - 10%) of all children in the United States, and three to six percent (3% - 6%) of adults. About 35% of all children referred to mental health clinics are referred for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, making it one of the most prevalent of all childhood psychiatric disorders.

Why Does It Seem That There Are More Children With ADHD Than Ever Before?


Even though the percentage of people with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder is likely the same as in the past, there are three likely reasons why it seems that "there is more ADHD" than ever before:

Anti-Social Behaviors and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder


Anti-social behaviors are common with ADHD individuals. About 60% of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder kids are also oppositional or defiant. Some are even getting in trouble with the law.

What Causes Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder?


The most recent models that attempt to describe what is happening in the brains of people with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder suggest that several areas of the brain may be affected by the disorder. They include the frontal lobes, the inhibitory mechanisms of the cortex, the limbic system, and the reticular activating system. Each of these areas of the brain is associated with various neurological functions.

Its Never Too Late


First of all, a bit of background: A high school dropout, stay-at-home mom until the age of 40, I wasn?t too motivated to learn. Then I read the following quote:"Old Bureaucrat, my comrade, it is not you who are to blame. No one ever helped you to escape.? Nobody grasped you by the shoulder while there was still time. Now the clay of which you wereshaped has dried and hardened, and naught in you will ever awaken the sleeping musician, the poet, the astronomer that possibly inhabited you in the beginning." (Antoine de Saint Exupery)

Panic Attacks: Effective Ways to Cope


Jill is a 21 y/o college student who used to do well until about a few months ago when she started to experience ?weird? attacks almost daily. She described her experience as ?horrible.? When she has the attack, she feels that she?s about to die or develop a stroke.

Are All Dementias Alzheimer?s?


I?m surprised when some patients and caregivers confuse dementia and Alzheimer?s as one and the same. Each time a family member is suffering from memory loss, the conclusion is always Alzheimer?s. Is it reasonable to label all dementias as Alzheimer?s?

Behavioral Manifestations of Alzheimer?s Dementia


Alzheimer?s Dementia has a combination of cognitive and behavioral manifestations. Cognitive impairment is the core problem which includes memory deficits and at least one of the following: aphasia or language problem, agnosia or problems with recognition, apraxia or motor activity problem, and impairment in executive functioning (e.g. planning, abstract reasoning, and organizing).

What is the Treatment for Bipolar Disorder?


How do we treat bipolar disorder? Specifically, how do we treat mania or depression associated with bipolar disorder? The treatment of these two clinical states is not the same.

You, I and We


Our life in society hovers around the concept of ?You?I? We?. The first stage is ?You-You? which is called ?dependent? stage. As a child, we are dependent on others for our needs and expect help and support from others. The dependence can be either emotional or physical. The second stage is ?I ? I?, where in we attain relative freedom and corresponding changes are noticeable in terms of speech, behavior, movements, preferences, interests and perceptions.In this stage we act with absolute freedom both mentally and physically. The feeling of ?Me-Mine? will be at a high point during this stage. Typical thought processes will be as follows:
