Description / Abstract:


This book is unique in that it is the first of its kind to provide scientific evidence of clinical population reporting data gathered over a period of 20 years. More importantly, this book provides documentation of 20 years of neuropsychological evaluation: the art form of diagnosing an attention disorder by using brain behavior measures to systematically record attention symptoms of slow cognitive or thinking speed, distractibility, information processing and input, as well as the pattern of visuospatial problems found to lead to reading comprehension difficulties and dislike of reading. We have used the same measures to document the presence of ADD/ADHD (Attention Deficit Disorder/Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) over time. The accuracy of these measures has been demonstrated through concurring diagnoses by other professionals as well as documentation of the same patterns (sometimes the same scores) obtained almost 15 years later on re-testing. Neuropsychological assessment is complemented by numerous self-report measures completed by parents and teachers as well as by the individual. The data is enormous, and in an effort to make reading easier, we have included graphs demonstrating the finding for each question for the self-report measures and individual test finding. We hope this is helpful to you in bringing some clarity to a disorder that has been too often misunderstood and misdiagnosed.
