ADHD: Gain Momentum With Your KNOWINGS


ADHD is a challenge of momentum.

Don’t’ do the things that are hardest and most difficult first.

Do those things that will get your engine revved up so you can build off the energy and forward movement you have already established.

Don’t listen to the dominant beliefs that hold you back.

Listen to the music that makes you sing, dance and come alive!

The Greatest Ignorance People Have is Rejecting Something They Know Nothing About


The greatest ignorance people have is rejecting something they know nothing or very little about, and then going out and saying things that justify that ignorance.

There are some people who by virtue of a credential or status, think they know what ADHD is and think they know what solutions need to be implemented for everyone to improve their ADHD. 

The scientific facts and comprehensive health options that are part of a successful system for managing ADHD have been researched, documented and disseminated to the public. They have been successfully used by countless numbers of people with ADHD to create fulfilling lives. 

We know that proper diagnosis supported by the appropriate medications have been important components of successful treatment. 

Well-trained and experienced health care professionals who work with people who have ADHD, know that an emphasis on medications is NOT THE ONE AND ONLY SOLUTION. The “pill” will not give you the skills to learn what needs to be integarted and implemented to live a successful life with ADHD.

Dr. Hallowell’s Response to the NY Times Opinion Piece “Ritalin Gone Wrong” NY Times January 28,2012

Regarding the opinion piece "Ritalin Gone Wrong" written by Alan Sroufe, Ph.D., (NY Times, Jan. 29, 2012): As is usually the case when the use of stimulant medications like Ritalin makes it into mainstream media, the piece pushed emotional hot-buttons in a way that would scare the daylights out of uninformed readers and lead them to avoid ever using such medications or allowing their children to, thereby giving up on a class of medications with enormous potential benefits.


Let me offer a different point of view. I'm an M.D., a child and adult psychiatrist who's been treating children who have what we now call ADHD for over 30 years. I was on the Harvard Medical School faculty for 20 years, and I still see patients in my offices in Sudbury, MA, and New York City every day. I have both ADHD and dyslexia myself. I've co-written, with John Ratey, the best-selling books on the topic of ADHD. I know this condition, and its various treatments, inside and out.
