If you haven’t been over to Dr. Charles Parker’s “new and improved” CorePsych Blog yet – for a wealth of information you won’t find anywhere else – maybe a “bribe” or five might move it to the top of your list.
“There ain’t no IS about ADD” ~ mgh
Fellow ADD advocate (originator of a TON of web content and author of two “Rules” books now), Dr. Parker is one of the physician crusaders for specificity – of diagnosis and of treatment approaches.
He insists that we need to take a detailed look at a whole lot more than
many of his collegues realize, and that the look must be individual specific.
The checklist below is from his download link page — another of my “reblog” work-arounds: a few points to consider as you think about why YOU might be interested in what he has to say.
Full Disclosure: he doesn’t even know I’m doing this, so he certainly isn’t paying me to do it!
Are YOU in any of the following situations?
- You think you have ADHD, but aren’t sure about the diagnosis in the first place
- You have previously failed ADHD treatment with confusing medications
- You are taking ADHD medications and don’t know what to expect
- You would love to be treated, but fear the multiple issues with stimulant medications
- You have a loved one who is taking ADHD medications and can’t figure out what’s going on
- You are a professional who treats ADHD with stimulant medications and feel confused
- You are a health professional who counsels patients who suffer with ADHD but are confused by ADHD Meds
- You are an employer with employees who suffer with ADHD and don’t have clue how to counsel them
- You are an interested consumer who wonders about problems with meds used for ADHD
- You wonder about precise diagnosis and are fed up with superficial, vague labels that don’t work
- You wonder how to get the meds right if you don’t know specific dosing strategies
And, finally, he says:
- Did I leave anyone out? – Very likely… so.
