The New York Times printed a tragic story of Richard Fee as told by reporter Alan Schwarz. The story is disturbing. In short, Richard Fee passed away because of inappropriate use of stimulant medication. In this episode of Attention Talk Radio, Dr. Ann Abramowitz and Dr. Theresa Maitland share the tragic stories of many who suffer because of inappropriate use of media sensationalism. The story is disturbing. What is even more disturbing is that the media would capitalize on the pain of the Fee family, using sensationalism that causes further stigma on sufferers of ADHD who take medications properly. Very simply, the media could use counterbalance in their reporting by featuring positive outcomes. Join host and attention coach Jeff Copper to hear our guests tell the rest of the story!
