Lawrence Diller quoted in major ADHD article

The current issue of Congressional Quarterly Researcher has a major lengthy article on ADHD/ADD, its treatment and controversies.  I was interviewed for the article and am quoted several times in the piece including the closing comment.  I was also misquoted (someone who spent time in the penitentiary did not become a policeman -- they were two separate people).  Here's the link:


I've been alerted by the Archdiocese of Oakland that my presentation on ADHD to the Special Needs Group has been sold out so if you haven't already purchased a ticket they ask that you do not call them as there are no more seats available.  To all who are coming thanks for your interest.  If you were interested but hadn't already bought a ticket put your name on my email list to the right of this page and you'll be informed as to the next presentation open to the public.


I will be offering a full morning presentation entitled, "ADHD: Models, Myths and Medication," at the St. Isidore School in Danville on Thursday, March 29 from 8:30 am to 12 Noon.  I will be discussing ADHD diagnosis, treatment and best practices.  I will also be presenting findings from my long term ADHD follow up project, "Remembering Ritalin" which features videos of young adults speaking directly about their memories and present day lives.  A Q and A will follow the main presentation.

Cost is $50 to attend which includes breakfast, lunch and handouts.  The presentation is open to the public and invites special needs coordinators, parents and educators for K-12.  The morning is hosted by The Diocesan Elementary Special Needs Board.  Register at  Hope to see you there!
