This latest edition of Julian Haber's highly praised and controversial exploration of the rampant, and often incorrect, overuse of the diagnosis of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) includes a wealth of new information. The chapter on medication has been completely revised and now details when to use certain drugs, side effects that can be expected, and a thorough review and update of older medications. Dr. Haber addresses problems special to teenagers with ADHD, including sexual relationships, pregnancy, substance abuse, driving, and general teen attitudes. Material has also been added to help parents find their way through the legal maze of public education where children are often wrongly first stigmatized with the ADHD label.
Julian Stuart Haber, M.D. is a practicing pediatrician with Cook Children's Physician Network in Texas. He has served on numerous task forces in the state of Texas and testified before the Senate Working Committee on Education on behalf of the American Academy of Pediatrics. He resides in Ft. Worth, Texas.
