Attention Deficit Disorder: Beyond the Myths.
Chesapeake Inst., Washington, DC.
This paper attempts to dispel widely held misconceptions about attention deficit disorder (ADD). Diagnosis, prevention, prevalence, behavior control, medication, and mainstreaming issues are briefly addressed, in discussions of such myths as "ADD can be prevented,""medication can cure students with ADD," and "students with ADD cannot learn in the regular classroom." The long-term prognosis for children with ADD is also explored. (PB)
