Richard G. Petty, MD

An Online Resource for Attention Deficit Disorder

Regular readers will know that I am very interested in attention deficit disorder, and I have written a number of articles on it. (Just click on the Category over on the left hand side).

It a common clinical problem, thought to affect 5% of American adults and an even larger number of children. Yet there is even more to it, in that attentional problems may also be able to teach us a great deal about gender differences in the brain and in psychology. To say nothing of helping us learn methods for improving everyone’s abilities to concentrate, focus and pay attention, at a time when ever more objects and events are demanding our attention.

Additude magazine has as its mission statement "to provide clear, accurate, user-friendly information and advice for families and individuals affected by AD/HD." Even as a professional, I have found the quality of the magazine to be excellent, and they are certainly succeeding in their aims. They certainly do not focus on medication as anything more than one aspect of treatment.

If you are interested in ADD, I highly recommend this resource.

“Life is denied by lack of attention, whether it be to cleaning windows or trying to write a masterpiece.”
–Nadia Boulanger (French Conductor and Musician, 1887-1979)
