Millions of children are being diagnosed with attention deficit disorder (ADD). The inability to focus in the classroom leads to frustration for children, teachers and parents. Drugs like Ritalin, Adderal, and newer compounds such as Concerta and Strattera have become staples of treatment for ADD. This show will explore a wide variety of approaches for attention problems and offer guidance on how to focus on a child's strengths instead of weaknesses. Our goal is to help families cope and raise children who can become functioning, happy adults. Guest: Edward Hallowell, MD. Author of "The Childhood Roots of Adult Happiness" and "Driven to Distraction."
