Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder: Diagnosis, Prevalence and Treatment


Brian M. Kyser (Editor)

Series: Neurology – Laboratory and Clinical Research Developments

BISAC: MED056000

This monograph comprises three chapters, each focusing on a different aspect of Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). Chapter One presents an overview of diverse pharmacological therapies and differences in the mechanisms of action of psychostimulants, non-psychostimulants, and other treatments for ADHD. Chapter Two evaluates the effects of practical interventions for students with ADHD pursuing higher education. Chapter Three describes how multimedia formats, which simultaneously provide visual and verbal information, can help students learn by taking advantage of “dual processing,” wherein information is processed through two channels instead of through a single channel. This approach to teaching is speculated to be particularly beneficial for students with ADHD.
