The ADHD debate is an emotive issue which has been simmering in the medical and general community for years. Parent who decide to treat their children with ADHD medications and who welcome changes in their child's behaviour have a heavy emotional investment in believing that they are helping their children. But there have been concerns about possible misdiagnosis and over-prescription of ADHD medications for some time. At one level the issue is very simple. Are amphetamines and other psychotropic drugs good for inattentive and impulsive children in the long term? On another level how robust is the medical evidence on the symptoms and diagnosis of ADHD? This is a book that tackels both sides of the issue in plain readable language. In Speed Up and Sit Still Martin Whitely dissects the issues around what he calls the ADHD industry and finds that his long journey through the ADHD debate included many surprising twists and turns.
