ADHD on Science Friday

O my soul:

New research came out last month on the science behind Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD).

What is ADHD?

Listen to an overview of ADHD and the Brain's Reward System from a September 11, 2009 of Science Friday.

It appears that not all brains have the same chemistry to reward you and bring a sense of pleasure.

What might this mean for parents of children with ADHD? What might this mean for you?

    This is a brief peek into the world of someone with ADHD ... at least for me. When my sister shared it with me a couple of years ago it was a deciding factor in my seeking evaluation.

    A great book on the subject of adult ADD (for those diagnosed or just wondering if they may have it) is "You Mean I'm Not Lazy, Stupid or Crazy?!: The Classic Self-Help Book for Adults with Attention Deficit Disorder". I saw myself everywhere in that book. Knowing there was an answer to my madness (and even those apparently quirky little things about myself I didn't realize) was a comfort.
