At some time or another, most of us have trouble concentrating on an assignment, sitting still in class, or waiting our turn. When these troublesome behaviors interfere with our ability to lead a normal life, it could be a sign of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). An estimated one to three million children in the United States live in the shadow of ADHD, coping with mild to severe behavioral problems. Trudi Strain Trueit examines the controversy surrounding ADHD, as well as the symptoms, possible causes, and methods of treatment. Also, people who have ADHD tell their stories and discuss the positive steps they took in coping with the disorder so that they could succeed in life. Book jacket.
