1-0 out of 5 stars Ridiculous comments
I see many ridiculous comments here, such as: "ADD never existed until 1980. Now where had it been hiding for all those thousands of years?"There are many diseases and disorders that are not discovered and/or defined for millenia.There are also diseases/disorders that pop up for what seems to be no reason at all.AIDs wasn't heard of before the 1970s, do you doubt its existence?Of course not, because it is something tangible that you can have a concrete test for.Just because ADD/ADHD has to do with the brain, and brain chemicals does not mean that it does not exist.It is not as easy to explain and it is not as clear cut a diagnosis as many diseases, but it is nonetheless a disease.

Also, I have seen many people who say their child/children have ADD/ADHD, yet I have seen no one here who has ADD/ADHD themself.I do have ADD/ADHD.Ritalin and other medication I have taken for my ADD/ADHD has changed my life.I would not be in the same place I am now if it were not for these medications and the help of a psychiatrist.I realize medication is not for everyone, but it has a very positive, sometimes life-changing effect on others.If you have never experience ADD/ADHD or another brain chemical disorder, you are really in no place to comment on whether other people should be taking medication or not.This decision is up to every individual and every family, there is no perfect answer that fits everyone.Not Ritalin, not therapy, not anything in "No More Ritalin: Treating ADHD Without Drugs."

5-0 out of 5 stars Ritalin is not the only answer to ADD
I was so happy to find a book that supported the idea that ADD might be managed by other methods than medication. In fact as a biofeedback therapist treating ADD I know that other methods might work better than Ritalin, I also know first hand that there are problems in using Ritalin for some. I recommend this book and it was an inspiration for me to also produce a book of natural techniques I use in my practice to help children with ADHD. The book is BEING IN CONTROL: Natural Techniques for Increasing Your Potential and Creativity for Success in School

5-0 out of 5 stars A Great Intro to the Ritalin Controversy
This book is an excellent introductory into the controversy over Ritalin and hyperactivity. Dr. Mary Ann Block provides alternatives to drugging children for their so-called "hyperactivity" in her book. This book is very clearly written and is approachable by the general reader. It offers many facts about Ritalin, such as Ritalin stimulates the same part of the brain as addictive drugs like cocaine.

4-0 out of 5 stars Finally There is Help
In her book, No More Ritalin, Dr. Mary Ann Block provides a compelling look at the level that the medical profession has stooped-to treat the symptom, because it is so easy to use a drug, rather than to look for the cause of the problem. The use of Ritalin to treat the disorder, known as ADHD is called into question. In fact the very concept of ADHD is questioned, and for this reader, the question, is how can we go on treating symptoms rather than the root causes of our problems. Perhaps that is the problem that we face in the United States today-perpetually looking at symptoms versus causes. In taking a fresh look at the education process Dr. Block points out the problem that educators are trying to solve, "How do we get all of the children to fit the same mold, and learn in the same way." When challenged by a youngster, either because their learning style is different, or from nutritional or environmental factors, we jump to the ADHD label, and with the help or acquiescence of the medical community, chemically help the kids to be more submissive, though no more educated. Dr. Block discusses such factors as sugar's impact on behavior. The hypoglycemic/ adrenaline cycle, which can lead to disruptive behavior. Yet we still insist on filling out children with highly sugared cereals that starts that cycle each morning. She also examines and provides convincing evidence of the impacts of food allergies, which can and do disrupt the cognitive ability of children in learning activities. The identification of root causes and the remedies are discussed, but not how to find a physician who will look beyond the symptom and develop a holistic approach to the treatment of each child. The Ritalin excuse is still easy to use. This book is on my Must Read list for any parent who cares enough to want to really help his or her child to learn and develop without the stigma of the ADHD label, and with the God-given abilities with which each child is endowed.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good book for it's side of the argument.
I enjoyed reading this book and it helped me learn about osteopathy. At times i felt I was reading an info-mercial for osteopathy. The book also gave several other possibilites for having ADHD symptoms. It is very compelling though not super detailed. I would recommend this book to EVERY parent of a child diagnosed with ADHD. I would also highly recommend reading another book that would provide the other side of the argument ... Read more

To the outside world, a child who exhibits an obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)--manifested by constant counting, cleaning, checking, or hoarding--often seems "tuned out" from reality. But for the estimated 3 million-plus people driven to perform such ritualistic behaviors, just the opposite is true: most are painfully aware of their heightened perceptions. Left untreated, a child with OCD can suffer from debilitating anxiety and embarrassment, far beyond the normal levels most healthy kids experience during their school years.

Author Mitzi Waltz presents a superior guide on this complex neurological illness, with thorough and thoughtful attention to every subtopic imaginable: causes; consequences; diagnosis (including rare conditions and related disorders); therapeutic, medical, and alternative intervention; insurance issues; schooling; and transitions. Each chapter reads easily as it unravels the intricacies associated with OCD, but never sacrifices detail. Most helpful are Waltz's comprehensive list of medications (including generic names, side effects, known interaction hazards, and special tips), her critical chapter on the turbulent school years, and the resource section that includes the Children's Yale-Brown Obsessive Compulsive Scale for assessing symptoms. Herself the mother of two children diagnosed with OCD, Waltz speaks candidly, empowering parents to make critical choices for their child's treatment and to employ successful coping skills for daily living. Her opinions--and those quoted from parents traveling the same road--offer additional, firsthand knowledge that smartly supports each topic. Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder: Help for Children and Adolescents is an extremely valuable tool for parents, teens with OCD, and child therapists as well. --Liane Thomas ... Read more

There seems to be few OCD related books availible in the United Kingdom, I ordered this book from the USA and was not disappointed. We needed a reference book to help with my sons condition, this book certainly fits the bill, Buy It!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great book on helping kids with OCD!!
This is the only book I've found that covers everything about OCD in kids, including dealing with it in the family and at school. The parts on therapy and medications are very thorough, but it goes way past just the medical stuff. I have read some of the books written for doctors but this is down to earth and written for PARENTS--makes it easy to understand the choices you have to help your child. ... Read more

I found this book to be of value. As a special education major with an emphasis on children with severe disabiities I found there was a lot of information in this book.

Book Description

For children with Down syndrome, communicating is just as urgent and essential as it is for anyone else.In the newly updated and expanded edition of Communication Skills in Children with Down Syndrome, Libby Kumin offers comprehensive, authoritative, and practical advice based on her nearly 25 years of firsthand experience with kids with Down syndrome.She explains the role of a SLP, the stages of communication development, and how certain characteristics of Down syndrome, such as low muscle tone, hearing loss, and cognitive delays, can slow progression of those skills.Delays can lead to frustration and other problems for children who do not have intelligible speech until age 2 or later.

EARLY COMMUNICATION SKILLS FOR CHILDREN WITH DOWN SYNDROME focuses on speech and language development from birth through the stage of making 3-word phrases, which is often around kindergarten age, but can occur later.This book offers a wealth of information on intelligibility issues, hearing loss, apraxia (difficulty planning oral-motor movements), and other factors that affect communication for children with Down syndrome.It explains how to prepare for and understand the results of speech-language assessment, and goes on to describe what to expect in the years ahead when a child enters elementary school.

Throughout the new edition, the author incorporates the latest research on Down syndrome and communication development.She has added new chapters on high- and low-tech augmentative and alternative communication options, as well as articulation and literacy (how reading aids in the learning of language, speech, and auditory skills).New checklists on evaluating and treating speech problems, and numerous home activities designed to help children master each stage of communication development have also been added. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Humorous tale of a girl with AD/HD
This book would be good a for girl with AD/HD. She could identify with the successes and the mishaps of a character who shares some of her characteristics. Since girls with AD/HD often feel isolated and "defective," this book could her realize that she is not the only person in the world like this. She may see that one can succeed with AD/HD, and that one doesn't have to be the perfect student to be a successful person.

Paige daydreams during class, so much in fact, that her classmates call her "spacey." Her class is having a competition to see who can write the best paper on a particular topic. Paige is absent-minded, so she forgets about her paper until it becomes an urgent priority. Paige's dog provides distraction for her when she least wants it. The dog is stealing toys from children and animals. Despite all of these challenging events, Paige ends up getting at least part of what she wanted.

This book would be a good addition to the library of a child with AD/HD. It is a bit more of a "teaching" book than simply an entertainment book. However, some of Paige's situations are funny and keep the plot moving.

5-0 out of 5 stars the first star I see
My daughter has ADD and she has been diagnosed for 3 years. Now she is in the fourth grade and is starting to ask questions about why she is differant. She wants to know if she can succeed with ADD, she is yearning for information that will help her understand herself, I think she is saddened and feels lonely and truly tries to do what she is supposed to....The First Star I see is a wonderful believable story about a 4th grade girl who always feels like she is behind the 8-ball...she finds someone who cares enough to show her that she has attention deficit and in finding out she starts to accept herself through understanding. It describes being teased, forgetting homework, missing details.....humorous story line, emotional and best of all relatable....Good starter book that is loaded with information about ADD/ADHD but presented in fiction form!

Book Description

Is it “just a phase,” or could your child be headed for serious trouble?


If you sense that your child is seriously troubled, you may feel bewildered, helpless, ineffective. How can you stop your child from throwing away his or her life? How can you avoid thinking that you’ve failed as a parent? In this newly revised and expanded edition of the classic guide Before It’s Too Late, clinical psychologist Stanton E. Samenow explains how to break the useless cycle of blame and take corrective action. Topics include:

* How to understand the personality of the antisocial child
* How to tell the difference between a “phase” and a pattern of misbehavior
* How to identify the seven common manifestations of antisocial behavior
* How to cope more effectively as the parent of an older antisocial child
* How to avoid the six common mistakes that prevent parents from taking action
* How to step in—early and effectively—before bad behavior becomes entrenched

5-0 out of 5 stars What is wrong with our children and what can we do about it?
In the book , Before It's Too Late, Dr.Samenow answers the questions many Americans have concerning what we can do about teenage criminals.

I have taught in McLaughlin Youth Center (MYC) for over 11 years. MYC is the state reform school for Alaska. Over these 11 years I have taught hundreds of youthful offenders. Dr. Samenow has not only described the problems these offenders have, he has identified how to help those who can be helped.

Many times I have asked my students, "Did any of you know that what you did to get incarcerated here was wrong?" In every instance 100% of them admit that they knew that their action was wrong. They admit that they made the choice to take a chance and commit a crime.

Through out my teaching career, which began in 1955, I have heard people say, "Oh, the poor children. If their parents had not neglected them, if they had had a good home, if only society gave them a chance, et cetera." This is utter nonsense and Dr. Samenow refutes this nonsense with facts and statistics. These facts reveal that the choices these criminals made were not the result of neglect or poor conditions. In nearly every case children made the choices. These children have a predisposition to antisocial behavior. America has excused their behavior and we can not survive if we do not stop excusing juvenile criminal behavior.

America must save itself from this growing number of criminals. We must recognize that the weak treatment programs of the past have not worked. These programs are not working now and that the children of today need to know that their antisocial behavior will result in the swift, sure and certain punishment their crimes deserve.

Dr. Samenow tells us how to do this. We must listen before it's too late.

Rev. Dr. Michael K. Mitchell Anchorage, Alaska

4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent book for parents w/unruly children
This was one of the most thoroughly researched book on children with discipline problems who do not respond to the usual consequences of their behavior. Dr. Samenow has extensive experience with criminal behavior and insight into the thought processes of deviant children. I was very disappointed, however, with the lack suggestions for parents with these children. The efficacy of counseling is implied without advice on how to find a professional with experience in these areas. How to deal with specific, common behavior problems is not addressed.

1-0 out of 5 stars Not an excellent book, keep looking.
I found this book extremely frustrating and a disappointing. On and on the problem is covered and that is almost the entire book. There is very little offered in the way of helpful strategies that the average reasonable parent would not already be doing. For a parent that is struggling with a problem child keep looking because there are no answers here in this book just more of what you already know yourself. It occurred to me that I wish every councilor would put their attitudes and thoughts down in a book. That way you could read the book and in one day determine if you thought the psychologist was going to be helpful instead of risking months or years in counseling before you found out.

5-0 out of 5 stars Required reading for those who work with adolecents
Criminals begin as kids. Unfortunately many believe that this statement is not true. After working with prison inmates and kids in community MHMR settings, I see the roots of criminal thinking in many so-called "disturbed" kids. Any one who works with kids needs to read this book. I would recommend reading The Criminal Mind as well. Do not dismiss this book with out carefully considering it carefully.

Dr. Samenow applies his years of research and experience with the criminal and applies it to childern. Some may argue that kids are different from adult criminals, but in many ways they are not. There are obivious differences, but there is a suprising similarity in their thought process. I have extensive experience with criminals, inmates, and "disturbed" kids. Intervention as early as possible is required.

5-0 out of 5 stars Are violent patterns of thought and behaviour universal ?
... Stanton Samenow in "Before it's too late" : violent patterns of thinking and behaviour start at a young age and are very difficult to modify ...

This leads to one question : are the patterns outlined ... universal and can they be found in any kind of criminality, including political one (e.g. terrorism, gnenocide...) ?

If this is the case, once these patterns have been clearly defined and catergorized (which is not the case yet), we can hope to identify them and act preventively, especially with the most extreme cases, whether people are acting alone or as part of a political movement. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Not for those who feel good about their child
This collection of short vignettes might be good for those struggling with grief about their child with a disability,
those that want to know that there are others who feel that way too.
I found the book annoying and upsetting, as I am grateful for my daughter with DS and enjoy her a lot.
I was also disappointed that the author chose to try to write almost entirely about disabilities other than DS(Down Syndrome). Her child had DS so she could have shared more of her own experiences and perhaps given the book a little more warmth.

5-0 out of 5 stars A book to treasure
Barbara Gill is a writer, attorney, and disability advocate as well as the mother of a child with Down syndrome. In this book she shares short one or two page vignettes that honestly tell what she has experienced. With titles such as "Awareness", "Sorrow", "Magical Thinking", "Forgiveness", "Pain", she captures the emotions that parents of children with disabilities share. Each reading stands by itself and can be read over and over again. It is a book that you will always keep nearby and will want to read from for years to come.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Companion...
I bought this shortly after finding out my baby had severe cerebral palsy, blindess, and mental disabilities from brain damage. It was helpful to read the words of other parents whose children were didabled in various ways, because they knew what they were talking about. I did not feel the same as all of the contributors, but I could see their point of view. Reading some of the contributions, I felt so good knowing that some of these parents felt the same and had the same thoughts I did. At the time, I was deluged with advice and attempts at wisdom from people with healthy normal children. But this book offered me the shared wisdom and strength of parents who really know what it is like.

5-0 out of 5 stars A wonderful book
I only wish I had found this book a year ago, when I was first struggling with the facts of my child's disability. This is a book they should hand out to parents in hospitals and clinics. It is honest, heartbreaking, sweet and hopeful all at the same time. Not every one of the little notes will match your mood at any given time, but the book is structured so that you can pick and choose among them at random. Barbara Gill has managed to put into words the complex emotions of having a child that challenges every facet of your life in previously unimaginable ways, yet for whom you feel a deep and ferocious love. I keep it on my desk at work and pick it up when I feel myself flagging -- it never fails to help me pick up and go on.

5-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic
This book was given to me by a friend and I have given it to countless others including my school district and my daughter's teachers through the years. This book means different things to me each time that I read it. I can pick it up after not reading it for several months and find something new and inspiring in it. I belong to a book club for moms who have kids with special needs and although we've read several books, we keep coming back to this one and each meeting we each read an exerpt and it can result in an entire night of sharing. This book can make you laugh, cry, reflect and give you strength to face another day. This is my favorite book of all times. ... Read more

Book Description

Autism is now an epidemic in the United States and in much of the world, rising by as much as 1000% in some areas. The Healthy Mind Guide: Reversing Autism explores why and offers effective treatment options and the possibility of a positive outcome via natural medicine therapies that can ameliorate or reverse the disorder in many cases.

Part I of the book covers the basics of autism—what it is and what causes it. The book includes discussion of the following factors that are often involved in the disorder: vaccines, heavy metal toxicity, nutritional deficiencies/imbalances, food allergies, digestive problems and fungal overgrowth, viruses or viral overload, immune dysfunction, problems in the birthing process, and energetic legacies from unresolved family issues in previous generations.

A chapter in the book is also devoted to the deeper question of what makes a child susceptible to autism—after all, not all children who are vaccinated develop autism, for example. Included in this discussion is the work of William J. Walsch, Ph.D., whose latest research may well have pinpointed the genetic component of autism that has previously eluded scientific inquiry.

In addition to the biochemical therapy practiced by Dr. Walsh, Part II of the book covers a range of natural medicine treatments for autism. These are advanced therapies that demonstrate the comprehensive healing potential in the field, and include treatments to eliminate allergies, integrate children’s listening and learning skills, nutritional supplements to correct imbalances, cranial osteopathy to reverse birth trauma, and many more. ...

3-0 out of 5 stars A nice compliation of alternative approaches to treating ASD
This is a good book for parents as an overview of alternative treatments for ASD children. Note, it contains some approaches not all approaches of alternative medicine. I would sincerely recommend this book but if you are a parent looking at all alternatives, including Children with Starving Brains by Dr J. McCandless as well. These two books will provide you all the information you need in evaluating next steps with a good, thoughtful, forward thinking doctor.

5-0 out of 5 stars Masterful and authentic!
I am very excited by this book! As a professional working in the field it has been difficult to recommend books to parents of this client group. While it's wonderful to read heartfelt stories of parents struggles and them finding answers BUT I often feel uncomfortable if a particular 'brand' of therapy is seen as the 'answer'.

This book shares many 'answers' and feels like parents are at last getting the parts of the jigsaw. It's up to them which part they place down first! For professionals the book is educational and informative.

The chapters on vaccination, nutrition and detoxification particularly encouraged me. Many times I hear people approaching these subjects as 'alternative' and by association are seen as somehow being invalid.

I found the author's research impeccable and her authentic way of writing made it hard to put the book down.

Chapter 11 is a wonderful chapter talking about Levels of Healing using a structure I am slightly familiar with. The tone of the writing makes me interested and curious to follow up on these ideas and approach. Even I would normally dismiss some of these methods as 'far out'

The symbols 'See also' and ?Resources? are very user friendly as are the endnotes and references.

There is a chapter on the method I employ. I found was an excellent description and a clear understanding of how the work can help autism. After all the reading I've done in this area, this must be the best! The author is an excellent interviewer. Such depth of understanding of the various treatments- it's as if she has experienced them all!

I intend to email the details of this book to parents of autistic children I know. I believe it to be a must read for all parents and professionals associated with autism.

Thank you Stephanie!

5-0 out of 5 stars A Great Alternative to Psychotherapeutic Medicines
Being a parent of an autistic 14 year old, this book has been a lifesaver. We are doing one of the options that is listed in the book after much research. The book triggered an option that we have not considered before. Our son has been aggressive since starting puberty. The natural medicine alternatives is allowing us to wean him off his medicines. I have been a PICU nurse for 22 years and believe in the medical field. As a mom who has tried everything, I believe in the alternatives especially if they work. All medicines have untoward side effects and never a cure. I wish this book was written ten years ago when our son was young for him to have a chance of full recovery. A must read book for everyone with a child with autism.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Great Service
Stephanie Marohn has done the autism community a great service. Considering autism is by and large an iatrogenic disease it is Stephanie's great luck never to have received formal training in medicine. In place of the common medical text where much is written and little said, Stephanie researches and reports on the underlying causes, and most importantly, on those rare physicians and practitioners who are safely and effectively treating autism.

Rarely has a disease been held hostage by the medical establishment to such a degree. Instead of psychiatric punditry and academic sophistry "The Natural Medicine Guide to Autism" provides parents, families, and professionals a ready reference to those individuals and protocols making a difference.

Children with autism do recover. Flat-earth physicians mired in the teaching and practice of hopelessness and prescription medications do not help. As a parent I know the road is bumpy and difficult. It is a road littered with obstacles from outdated theories to ongoing medical practices.

You can make a difference in your child's life. Read this book and let one criteria be your guide when following any of the protocols. Is my child better today than yesterday? There is every chance the answer will be yes.

Book Description

When young people have questions about a brother or sister with autism or Asperger's Syndrome, clear answers are hard to find.

"Why does Daniel do that?" is the question ten year old Emily recalled asking her parents as a young child when she first sought to understand her older brother and his differences.

Written by Eve Band, Ph.D., a clinical psychologist, this book gives voice to Emily's story: her questions about her brother, her search for answers about autism, her exploration of her feelings as a sibling of a high-functioning autistic brother.

Told in her voice, Emily's story is as uplifting as it is filled with valuable information for parents and siblings - or any individual whose life is touched by a person with autism or Asperger's Syndrome. ... Read more

"I really liked the way this book presents information about autism and Aspergers in such a clear way for children. Kids will find it easy to read and relate to Emily's story and actual experiences. It's a real treasure for kids who have a brother or sister with high-functioning autism or Aspergers, and a heart-warming read for their parents, too." ... Read more

Book Description

Brainstorms examines questions surrounding the possible neurobiological underpinnings of the emotionally hyperactive and hyperreactive components of ADHD and related disorders. These "pre-psychological" substrata may, for example, be fundamental to what we think of as temperament. Here is where the regulation of selective attention and the filtration of noise reside, along with the neurosystems behind energy, sleep/wakefulness, and emotional intensity. The "firecracker temperament" often associated with certain subtypes of ADHD is quick to heat up and just as quick to cool down. Episodes of dyscontrol, involving anger or any other strong emotion, can present the most challenging aspects of managing ADHD in people of all ages; on the other hand, what takes shape in one person as a handicap may be a welcome burst of creativity and inspired vision in others–such as Mozart, Edison, Hemingway. Exploration of the many paradoxes of these brainstorms is the business of Dr.Horacek's very different, very necessary book. ... Read more

This book cover all aspects of the ADD / ADHD child. Good recommendations on meds. for different types of ADHD and why.

5-0 out of 5 stars concise yet thorough discussion of ADHD and its management
I read a borrowed copy and was ordering my own book within 24 hours. Both as a professional working with "at risk" children and as the mother of a child with a psychobiological disorder, I whole-heartedly recommend Dr. Horacek's book. In a spare 211 pages he gives perhaps the clearest most readable discussion of neuroanatomy and neurotransmitters I have encountered. He covers medical management and includes a fascinating glimpse of drug manufacture and marketing, the FDA, and the quandry faced by medical practitioners (hence insurance companies and consumers) in labeling a collection of behavioral symptoms. This book's cost might give some pause, but in my experience one would have to combine 2 or 3 other less readable texts to approximate the content of this single volume. It's an ideal purchase for those who want to know "why". ... Read more

Book Description

Identifying Gifted Students: A Practical Guide is designed for practicing professionals such as teachers, counselors, psychologists, and administrators who must make decisions daily about identifying and serving gifted and talented students. It is particularly useful to those educators who use multiple assessments with an increasingly diverse population. Along with models that focus on the development of talents, the first chapter provides sets of characteristics of gifted and talented students, including those who are more difficult to identify. The second chapter explains approaches to qualitative and quantitative assessments and methods for determining their technical qualities. Specific examples of portfolios, interviews, and observations are discussed, along with more traditional measures such as intelligence, aptitude, and achievement tests. The important topics of culture-fair and nonbiased assessments are addressed in the third chapter with solutions for common barriers to identification. To assist practitioners in selecting instruments that might be used in the identification process, the fourth chapter reviews the technical characteristics of more than 40 tests. Developing an identification procedure, interpreting results, and making selection decisions are described in the fifth chapter, with the final chapter assisting school districts in evaluating and improving their overall identification procedures. This book should be very helpful to practitioners in establishing procedures that are effective in identifying gifted and talented students. ... Read more

Parents of very premature infants, often shocked and panicked by the situation in which they find themselves, have had surprisingly few resources to consult. Now, with Miracle Birth Stories of Very Premature Babies, the information, support, and hope they so desperately need have been made available. Written by a prize-winning journalist and father of a now-thriving micro-preemie, this uplifting testament to hope is filled with parents' stories of their preemies and micro-preemies, complete with details of their struggles in neonatal intensive care units (NICUs), with harrowing series of life-threatening conditions, and with accounts of extraordinarily delicate and risky surgical procedures. This is the only book available in which parents, through interviews, "speak" directly to other parents about their common experiences with premature infants, and it is an invaluable guide to navigating the NICU journey. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Book For Your ADD Child!
This is a great book to help children with ADD, ADHD, dyslexia, learning disabilities, autism, etc. I have seen some dramatic changes happen in children with these disorders in Dr. Devi's office. These NAET treatments work well on these children. Because they all have the same common problem: ALLERGIES.

This book gives good description about the signs and symptoms of ADD and ADHD. According to Dr. Devi, the cause of ADD and ADHD disorder is "ALLERGIES." There are many self-help tips given in this book for the parents to help their children. Overall this is a very useful book for the parents. I highly recommend this book if you have a child with ADD or ADHD.

5-0 out of 5 stars Say Good-Bye To ADD And ADHD
The book hits the problem on the head, conventional thinking on this suject has been "dope'm and forget about it".
Dr. Devi as she is called should get a nobel prize for her work in this field and on allergies.

5-0 out of 5 stars My Child's Freedom From ADD Through NAET
I watched Katie Couric today, January 16, 2001, on NBC at 8:00 am news talkng about ADD and ADHD. It broght a shadow of sadness in me when I saw some of those children under Ritalin going through unlimited struggle to lead a normal life and I decided to write this article. Most people do not know that their children suffer from ADD due to food and environmental allergies. If they stayed away from allergens, they may not have to be depending on Ritalin to live.
A friend gave me this book "SAy Goodbye To ADD and ADHD" by Dr. Devi S. Nambudripad. I stayed whole night and read the book. Tears began rolling down my cheeks as I was getting to the end of the book. After all, there is cure for my child's problem! Immediately I made an appointment for my child. Yes, he took almost two years' of NAET. But he is absolutely free of ADD today. Thank You Dr. Devi, for creating NAET. We owe our lives to you. This book will show the reader to make your or your child's journey easy if you suffer from ADD or ADHD. I like to inform parents of other children with ADHD that it is worth reading this book if you have someone woith ADD. Whenever I see articles and negatives comments written on ADD/ADHD saying that it is an incurable disorder and/ or one has to be on medication forever, etc, my heart hurts. When I see many ADD children suffer from the pangs of this illness, and when they end up being ADD adults and lead miserable lives as adults (I know many of them in my circle: school, college, friends, etc.), I feel the urge to shout out to them that "you don't have to live with ADD or ADHD. You have a way out within your reach. If there is a need, there is a way. It is true. Just read this book. Your life will change. You need to get NAET treatments and you won't be the same again." NAET has transformed my child into a normal human being. I am sure if these parents found NAET, many of their children could become normal too. Children are our future. If we could help our children get healthy, we would have a healthy future.
