Book Overview

At last, long-awaited answers to the questions you've been asking. Help for frustrated ADHD patients and their families. (As well as those with autism, PD, Asperger's syndrome, and other related conditions.)

Attention deficit/hyperactive disorder (ADHD) is one of the most rapidly growing diagnoses of our generation. Often the diagnosis fails to provide real help, leaving patients, doctors, and families at a loss to know what to do next. But for the first time ever, new insights into the overwhelming number of similarities between Autism and ADHD are giving those with ADHD genuine hope.

For years, the label of Autism has carried a negative connotation. Parents were afraid to admit the diagnosis and banished the term from discussion. Finally, The ADHD-Autism Connection gives parents, educators, and doctors a reason to embrace autism with a renewed sense of hope and understanding. This book will show how these understandings can minimize the frustration, misdiagnoses, and misunderstandings ADHD sufferers and their families face.

   Informative, wonderful, and astounding
I was amazed at how accurate this book was about my son. When a book is written from a parent of a special needs child, it means that they know what it's like to deal with a special needs child. My son was first diagnosed with attention deficit disorder and then with Aspergers. I tried to convince the doctors that he has both of those disorders. It was either one or the other for them. I know I'm not alone, but this book was amazing. It's difficult to raise a child, but he's my world. It is easy to read and comprehend. This book was written for my son, and I felt like it was written for him. Every parent, family member, and friend of a child with attention- deficit disorder must have it. This book will show you how to deal with doctors, schools, and everyone who doesn't understand what it's like to live with an Aspie child. It was recommended to his teacher and counselor. I wish it was published a long time ago.

   ADHD Connection
The book was written by a mother who was looking for answers for her child. I was looking for a link between the two. This mother does a great job explaining her beliefs. If you' ve ever questioned the connection, you should get this book.

   Adhd/autism connection
I found this book fascinating. It's easy to understand and not heavy on medical jargon. I read it in 2 days. The new facts about my son's disorder will help me in the future. I think this book is a must read for anyone who is struggling with a neurological condition.

   WOW-Quite a stretch
I wanted to see how the author came up with her conclusions. If the new DSM had not come out, I wouldn't have thought twice about the topic she discussed in the book about how ADHD is the same as autism. Definitely not. There are different types of disabilities and learning disorders, but she takes it a bit far. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone simply because I think it would inform them of incorrect and outdated information.

   Geared to parents for their children, not much for adults
Another book was written for parents with children. The book didn't gain much.
