The Natural Fix For ADD ADHD Revealed At Last —ADD Tip o the Day 559

From the sensational new New York Times article:

I promised to reveal “the natural fix for ADHD.”

So, here it comes.

Both parts.

Part A:

Adults should find a job that is suitable for them!

But wait, there’s more!

Part B :

Here it comes – wait for it. – Wait for it. – Wait for it. –

Schools should adjust to fit children’s needs!

Let me repeat that.  Schools should adjust to fit children’s needs.

Wow! Who’d a thought it?!  What a novel concept! Bet you didn’t see that one coming!

Yes, kids will do better in a school that fits their needs. But they’ll still forget their homework, unless there’s no homework. They’ll still blurt out.  Fidget. Daydream. Have trouble getting along with other kids. Lose their pencils, and their gloves, and their hats. Etc.

Point being, if the environment is just right, kids and adults will have less trouble from their symptoms, and they’ll have maximum opportunity to excel, but they’ll still have   ADD ADHD, won’t they?

But there’s still  more to say about this  article.

One thing startled me, about the stimulants.

And there’s some interesting science; may I even say, nuggets, hidden in the BS.

More next time.

About doug with ADHD

I am a psychiatric physician. I learned I have ADHD at age 64, and then wrote two ADHD books for adults, focusing on strategies for making your life better. I just published my first novel, Alma Means Soul. Your Life Can Be Better; strategies for adults with ADD/ADHD available at, or (for e books) Living Daily With Adult ADD or ADHD: 365 Tips O the Day ( e-book). This is one tip at a time, one page at a time, at your own pace. It's meant to last a year. As a child, I was a bully. Then there was a transformation. Now I am committed to helping people instead abusing them. The Bully was published in January, 2016. It's in print or e book, on Amazon.

    This sounds very similar to the same kind of moronic ‘experts’ who appear in British press every year to make a little fame for themselves and say ADHD doesn’t exist (and/or dyslexia, autism and a range of other ‘hard-to-define’ conditions which are common). It’s laughable that the conclusion is what it is – dismiss the condition completely and then say schools should adjust to handle it anyway! Brilliant.
