Contemporary Trends in ADHD Research
Norvilitis, Jill M., Ed.
With many children and adults affected by Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, researchers strive to understand the underpinnings of ADHD and associated factors on both a basic and applied level. The goal of this volume is to explore some of the broad array of research in the field of ADHD. The 12 chapters cover a variety of topics as varied as postural control, endocrine dysfunction, juvenile justice, and academic outcomes. These chapters will provide valuable insights for students reading about ADHD for the first time, researchers wishing to learn about the latest advances, and practitioners seeking new insight in the field. This book contains the following chapters: (1) Sensory Integration in Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder: Implications to Postural Control (Dalia Mohamed Hassan and Hanan Azzam); (2) Variability, Noise and Predictability in Motor Response Times: Adaptation or Misadaptation? (Tymothee Poitou and Pierre Pouget); (3) Endocrine Dysfunction and Growth in Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (J. Paul Frindik); (4) Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder: Birth Season and Epidemiology; (Cristina Morales, Amalia Gordovil, Jesus Gomez, Teresita Villasenor, Maribel Pero and Joan Guardia); (5) Hypothyroxinemia in Pregnancy is Related with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (Miriam Munoz Lopez); (6) Cutting Corners: Neuropsychological Research into the Energetics of ADHD (Jens Egeland); (7) Adolescent Academic Outcome of Childhood Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder--A Population-Based Study (Kirsten Holmberg); (8) Remedial Education for Children with ADHD in Sweden (Jane Brodin); (9) Evaluation of the Level of Knowledge of Infant and Primary School Teachers with Respect to the Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD): Content Validity of a Newly Created Questionnaire (Marian Soroa, Nekane Balluerka and Arantxa Gorostiaga); (10) ADHD Symptomatology, Academic Dishonesty, and the Use of ADHD Stimulant Medications Without a Prescription (Kelly Custode and Jill M. Norvilitis); (11) Understanding the Distracted and the Disinhibited: Experiences of Adolescents Diagnosed with ADHD Within the South African Context (J. Seabi and N.A. Economou); and (12) Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and Males in the Juvenile Justice System (Robert Eme).
