Meditation may reduce ADHD symptoms02 Jan


CEC SMARTBRIEF, January 02, 2009

A small group of middle-school students who practiced transcendental meditation twice daily at school reduced their stress and anxiety by 50% and improved ADHD symptoms as well, according to a new study published in Current Issues in Education. The changes after three months were much more dramatic than researchers expected, including better attention, memory, organizational and behavioral skills, said lead researcher Sarina J. Grosswald. WCVB-TV (Boston) (12/31)

ADHD,ADHD Conferences

CHADD’s 20th Annual International Conference on AD/HD13 Nov

CHADD’s 20th Annual International Conference on Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder in AnaheimCalifornia, the Home of Disneyland and Magic…

We left the confines of our offices to explore the latest research findings, medication updates, and approaches to treatment from some of the leading experts in the world of AD/HD.  Organizers expect about 1000 people from across the United States and many foreign countries to be here this week.  Can you believe so many ADDers, in one place, at the same time.  I’m sure it was not easy for some of them to get here.  Attendees came from all over the United States. International attendees came from all parts of world including a large Latin America contingent, Europe, Israel, and Japan.

The conference is arranged so that professionals, teachers, individuals and families can obtain the latest information that may be most valuable to them in their daily lives.  There are too many presentations for us to attend all of the ones we are interested in, choices-choices. Several of our staff will also be joining us here at the conference.  We will all do our best to write up some of the highlights and share them with you when we return. We look forward to your comments and questions. 


Most medical doctors who treat ADD/ADHD do so as part of a larger practice. ADHD Specialists focuses primarily on only treating ADD and related conditions. This intense focus allows us to continually sharpen our clinical skills, attend specialized training, utilize the latest therapies, and build our process to meet the specific needs of our clients.

Often medical, testing and counseling services are all separately owned and located practices. It just does not make sense to have to travel from one location to another to treat the same condition. Besides the issue of time and travel, how cohesive and effective is care being delivered in multiple locations by multiple, unrelated providers who don’t have time to talk to each other?
