Reviewer: Allison Martin

The ADD Answer provides a different take on parenting a child with ADD or ADHD, as it does not go into the causes or determination of ADD, but instead focuses on the social stigma of ADD, recommends ways that can help children at home and in school, and examines alternative treatments and lifestyles. The author, Dr. Frank Lawlis, is the contributing psychologist for the Dr. Phil television show.

This book provides helpful guidance for both school and home on coping with ADD and ADHD, with examples of way to make life easier for children in the process. Dr. Frank Lawlis examines the influence of stress, food and the environment for children with ADD, providing a number of suggestions for amelioration. The chapters on sleep and nutrition and vitamins are excellent and could be quite useful to parents. This book also provides information on a wide variety of alternative treatments; biofeedback, magnet therapy, and sound are three of the topics covered. While alternative ADD treatment therapies have not been proven to be effective in scientific studies, this book provides is a good overview for those who wish to explore them. Overall this is an interesting take on ADD management, which could supplement more mainstream texts on the causes and treatment of ADHD and ADD.
