ADDitude Magazine ADDitude Gives Thanks!


This month's ADDitude e-newsletter finds us reflecting on all that we are thankful for-including our readers!

Parents will be glad to know that our much-appreciated section, "Success at School,?" including six pages of school tips and educational guides will be featured henceforth in every issue of ADDitude.

With best wishes for a wonderful Thanksgiving,

Taking the Pulse of AD/HD

ADDitude attended a recent American Medical Association conference on AD/HD. The comments we heard provide food for thought. Here is a sampler:

  • ?Do you know that only 15 percent of adults with AD/HD actually realize they have the disorder?? -Rafael Klorman, Ph.D., professor of clinical and social sciences, University of Rochester, Rochester, NY
  • ?Sometimes the simplest change in school -- like being seated at the front of the classroom -- can make a big difference in an AD/HD child's academic performance.? -Stephen P. Hinshaw, Ph.D., professor of psychology, University of California, Berkley
  • ?AD/HD individuals with a high school diploma earn significantly less than their non-AD/HD counterparts. On average, those with AD/HD have household incomes that are about $10,791 lower for high school graduates and $4,334 lower for college graduates, compared to those who do not have AD/HD.? -Joseph Biederman, M.D., Harvard Medical School
