    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.
