Beyond Ritalin: Facts About Medication and Other Strategies for Helping Children, Adolescents, and Adults With Attention Deficit Disorder
Stephen Garber, Marianne Garber and Robyn Freedman Spizman
(HarperCollins, 1996, Paper $13.00)
This easy to read book offers multiple strategies for a variety of problems associated with ADD. It goes well beyond what I cover in Running on Ritalin with regards to how to. It is by no means anti-Ritalin but rather suggests a sensible balance and integration with other modalities when it comes to employing medication for ADD.
