Daniel Amen has written a number of books about ADD, and has identified multiple different types involving multiple areas of the brain. One specific type he identified is an ADD/ADHD involving rage, and how medications targeted towards “classic” ADD/ADHD can be really counterproductive. I don’t have the book in front of me. 🙁 It MIGHT be “Healing A.D.D.” His books are easy reads, and sometimes available in my local library system. I hope this is helpful! Kids can be really difficult, and I know you are frustrated (He is too!) and doing your best. Hang in there!
