A practical and friendly guide for adults living with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder.
AD/HD manifests itself during childhood with symptoms of inattention, hyperactivity and/or impulsivity. The methods used to reduce the symptoms act like glasses for the brain, by helping concentration or curbing fidgetiness. More than half of the children with AD/HD will still manifest symptoms in adulthood. Thus, they STILL need glasses and can benefit from knowing what tools are available to them as grown-ups.
Along with humorous insights and lively testimonials, the reader will discover the clinical symptoms, the scientific literature and the pharmacological treatments available to treat this neurological problem. This guide also offers a host of effective tips and practical hints specifically designed to help affected adults - and those around them - live with AD/HD in their daily lives.
"My Brain STILL Needs Glasses explains simply and clearly what we know about AD/HD in adulthood." Margaret WEISS, psychiatrist
"This book is essential for all adults living with this disorder, as well as all the health professionals who work with this clientele." Martin LAFLEUR, neuropsychologist
"A gold mine of practical tips for daily living! Dr. Vincent's book, with its lively and dynamic approach that is so much like Dr. Vincent herself, fills a big void in the dissemination of quality information about AD/HD in adults."
Daniel Létourneau, adult with AD/HD and co-founder and ex-president of the parents' association called PANDA (Parents Aptes à Négocier le Déficit d'Attention) of l'Assomption RCM.
