Most ADHD books rehash the same worn out theories and treatments. Instead, ADHD: A Path to Success offers a new and refreshing perspective on ADHD that makes sense with your own personal daily experience.
-ADHD: A Path to Success takes it out of the realm of medical mystery and psychobabble and describes a new, no drug, no diet, no nonsense, patented treatment technology.
-Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder is not a deficit, defect or neurological disorder. Rather, it is a highly refined, short-term coping skill that backfires in the long-run. Children adapt to unpleasant situations the same way adults do, by building emotional defenses.
-ADHD is a skilled defense that children develop against the unpleasant situations we put them in at home and school. Once the aversiveness of these situations and the ADHD type defenses are extinguished, attention improves, agitation and hyperactivity decreases, school and homework are much easier to handle.
Other approaches that treat these children are based on an adult's view of the problem. However, you can only help your child when you understand their experience of attention deficit disorder through their eyes. The engaging story of Dr. Weathers personal struggle and conquest of attention deficit disorder is chronicled. He explains your child's experience of attention deficit disorder as they live it, rather than how adults think about it. Once you understand attention deficit disorder from your child's point of view, you have taken an essential step to helping him solve his problem.
Many case studies and concrete examples of effective strategies are provided. A new follow-up study shows that 92% of families rate the three-day treatment program as Successful or Very Successful. These results were achieved before the advent of my new online ADHD treatment follow-up technology, WebCAER. Dr. Weathers reach and reputation in treating families has expanded from his original practice in Spokane Washington, to the rest of the United States as well as a number of foreign countries. Families routinely fly in for 3-5 days of intensive all day treatment. Their stories can be found in the section of this site.
