The Six Types of ADHD?

Q:

"What do you know about Dr. Daniel Amen's brain imaging to diagnose six distinctive brain dysfunctions in order to determine how to treat them?"

Dr. Larry Silver specializes in treating children with attention deficit disorder (ADHD).
A:

Dr. Amen has reported what you state. As best I know the literature, no research has been able to confirm his theory, findings, or recommendations. My personal suggestion is that you not spend time or energy seeking this approach to diagnosis or treatment.

Larry Silver, M.D., is the author of Dr. Larry Silver's Advice to Parents on AD/HD and The Misunderstood Child: Understanding and Coping with Your Child's Learning Disabilities. He is also a clinical professor of psychiatry at Georgetown Medical Center in Washington, D.C.
