(Third and FINAL Part) (I'm sure some of you are
thinking "Thank Goodness!") :^)
If you don't believe me, I invite you to check out the
facts at: NIMH (National Institute of Mental Health)-
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder: Decade of
the Brain http://www.nimh.nih.gov/publicat/adhd.cfm
American Academy of Pediatrics on guidelines for
information for parents:
and their article on incidence of injury to children
and on co-morbid disorders:
Centers for Disease Control Executive Summary on
Treatment of ADHD:
Here's a really good general article on ADHD,
identification, treatment, etc. from KidSource.com:
I have many more VALID links that I can share with
anyone that is interested. I'm sorry that Yahoo does
not translate the links in such a way as to allow you
to simply click on them to view them.
In conclusion, I apologize for boring those of you
that are not interested in this topic. However, since
many of our list members have contacted me after the
original post for further information, I felt that it
was important that valid information be shared.
Hopefully everyone that was not interested has by now
used the delete key. ;^)
