    Nutrition and ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder)

    in Education

    Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a puzzle. While the number of people diagnosed with ADHD is on the rise, there is still debate about whether ADHD is a real disorder, and debate about whether people, children especially, with ADHD should be prescribed medication to treat their symptoms. Despite the debates, there does seem to be a link between the symptoms of ADHD and mass-produced foods with lots of sodium, sugar, chemicals, and other additives.


    Dr. Rachel V. Gow is a neuroscientist whose expertise is ADHD, and particularly the impact of food, diet, and nutrition on the development and treatment of ADHD. She'll help us sort through the puzzle that is ADHD and talk about the importance of nutrition for children with ADHD and for all of us.

    Understanding Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder

    in Psychology

     
    Does your child have difficulty concentrating in school? Does he or she frequently get in trouble or fall behind because of difficulty paying attention and staying on task? Is your child wound up like an Energizer bunny? Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) affects an estimated 7 percent of American children or as many as 5 million children at any one time. These statistics translate into at least one child in every classroom in the United States. ADHD interferes with concentration and/or attention, making it difficult for a child to do well in school and in social situations. The first line of treatment for the millions of kids diagnosed with ADHD is often drugs. But is medication the best answer or might there be a less drastic natural alternative to treating ADHD?
    My guest is Deborah Troeger, a counselor who works with children affected by ADHD and their families. Deborah will help us understand ADHD and provide us with alternatives to treatment to help your child get back on track.

    in Self Help

     


     


    Too often, we hear people talk about helping those with ADHD to build habits. We are learning that ADHD is an executive functioning issue and requires effort. It's very effortful, making it more difficult for those with ADHD to build habits than for others. In this episode of Attention Talk Radio, we have an open conversation with Kirsten Milliken (http://www.playadhd.com) around the mechanics of building habits. We address why it's so difficult and particularly hard for those with ADHD. If you're an individual who has found behavior modification to be challenging or just hasn't worked, or if you're thinking of using it, you won't want to miss this show.

    in Self Help

    Dr. John Ratey (www.johnratey.com) is a bestselling author and an associate professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School. He is a renowned psychiatrist on treating adults with ADD. Since he himself has ADD, it is no surprise that, as a co-author with Dr. Ned Hallowell of the bestselling seminal book on ADD/ADHD, Driven to Distraction, he was able to confront a variety of false notions about ADD, including the most common myths that ADD affects only children and that ADD limits intelligence or self-discipline. Listen in as Dr. Ratey shares his insight on exercise and the ADHD brain.

    What? ADHD Lucked out of ADAAA in Section 504?

    in Self Help

    When laws are passed to protect those in need, agencies of the government are required to write regulations used to adhere to these laws. Who ensures that those with ADHD are protected under these acts? Politicians? Bureaucrats? Who speaks for the ADHD community at large? In this episode of Attention Talk Radio, we'll be interviewing Ingrid Alpern, co-chair of CHADD's public policy committee, for it is they who are actively involved with ensuring that attention deficit disorder is specifically listed as a disability in the 2008 amended act of ADA, which also impacts Section 504 plans. This show will enlighten and inspire you. It will give you reason to understand why everyone should be a part of CHADD (http://www.chadd.org) so that we may come together and speak with one voice.
