New & Noteworthy Book: A New Understanding of ADHD in Children and Adults: Executive Function Impairments
Dr. Thomas E. Brown, one of the world’s leading authorities on ADHD, has just published a book that sheds new light on the condition for both parents and professionals. In A New Understanding of ADHD in Children and Adults: Executive Function Impairments (Routledge) Brown redefines ADHD while also setting the record straight on 35 of the most common myths about the disorder. In addition Brown provides answers to many of the questions parents ask about ADHD:
- Why can those with ADHD focus very well on some tasks while having great difficulty in focusing on other tasks they recognize as important?
- How does brain development and functioning of people with ADHD differ from others?
- How do impairments of ADHD change from childhood through adolescence and in adulthood?
- What treatments help to improve ADHD impairments? How do they work? Are they safe?
- Why do those with ADHD have additional emotional, cognitive, and learning disorders more often than most others?
- What commonly-held assumptions about ADHD have now been proven wrong by scientific research?
There are few people more qualified to write about ADHD. As a practicing clinical psychologist, an Assistant Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at the Yale University School of Medicine, and Associate Director of the Yale Clinic for Attention and Related Disorders, Brown has been working with children, adolescents and adults with ADHD for more than 25 years.
