Book List - ADHD

There are lots of books on ADHD around, too many to choose from, so the list I have below is what parents/carers have suggested to me over the years, so should be quite good.

 

All Dogs Have ADHD by Kathy Hoopmann All Dogs Have ADHD takes an inspiring and affectionate look at Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), using images and ideas from the canine world to explore a variety of traits that will be instantly recognisable to those who are familiar with ADHD.

Following the style of the award-winning All Cats Have Asperger Syndrome, charming colour photographs of dogs bring to life familiar ADHD characteristics such as being restless and excitable, getting easily distracted, and acting on impulse.

This delightful book combines humour with understanding to reflect the difficulties and joys of raising a child with ADHD and celebrates what it means to be considered `different’. This absorbing and enjoyable book takes a refreshing approach to understanding ADHD.

Research Projects & ADHD

Vaccinated Children – Two and a Half Times More Likely to Have Neurological Disorders Like ADHD and Autism, a Survey in California and Oregon Finds.

Generation Rescue commissioned a phone survey of over 17,000 children, in the USA, which found that Among more than 9,000 boys age 4-17, the survey found vaccinated boys were two and a half times (155%) more likely to have neurological disorders compared to their unvaccinated peers. Vaccinated boys were 224% more likely to have Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and 61% more likely to have autism.

For older vaccinated boys in the 11-17 age bracket, the results were even more pronounced. Vaccinated boys were 158% more likely to have a neurological disorder, 317% more likely to have ADHD, and 112% more likely to have autism. Complete survey results are available at www.generationrescue.org
