This is a timely, illuminating, and objective exploration of the issues surrounding the diagnosis and treatment of ADHD. It comes with dedicated mailing and e-mail campaign to education related media and organisations. The ADHD debate is an emotive issue which has been simmering for years. Parents who decide to treat their children with medication and who welcome changes in their child's behaviour, have a heavy emotional investment in believing they are helping their kids. But there have been concerns about possible misdiagnosis and over-prescription of ADHD medications for some time. "Speed Up and Sit Still" is a book that tackles the major questions of the ADHD debate in plain, readable language. Are amphetamines and other psychotropic drugs good for impulsive and inattentive children in the long term? And how robust is the medical evidence on the symptoms and diagnosis of ADHD? In short: are children being medicated with amphetamines for a disorder whose existence is open to debate?
