ADD/ADHD is not as easily diagnosed or clear-cut as many believe; in fact it very often acts as a masking agent for other underlying, contributing disorders. It's important that we understand ADD/ADHD better. What You Think ADD/ADHD Is, It Isn't: Symptoms and Neuropsychological Testing Through Time is the culmination of the author's years of research involving clinical experience and testing, resulting in the first all-encompassing examination of the ADD/ADHD disorder.
