Scattered Minds: The Origins and Healing of Attention Deficit Disorder

This book has been written by Dr. Gabor Maté. The publishers say:

“Scattered Minds explodes the myth of attention deficit disorder as genetically based – and offers real hope and advice for children and adults who live with the condition.

Gabor Maté is a revered physician who specializes in neurology, psychiatry and psychology – and himself has ADD. With wisdom gained through years of medical practice and research, Scattered Minds is a must-read for parents – and for anyone interested how experiences in infancy shape the biology and psychology of the human brain.

Scattered Minds:

  • Demonstrates that ADD is not an inherited illness, but a reversible impairment and developmental delay.
  • Explains that in ADD, circuits in the brain whose job is emotional self-regulation and attention control fail to develop in infancy – and why.
  • Shows how ‘distractibility’ is the psychological product of life experience.
  • Allows parents to understand what makes their ADD children tick, and adults with ADD to gain insights into their emotions and behaviours.
  • Expresses optimism about neurological development even in adulthood,
  • Presents a programme of how to promote this development in both children and adults …”
