Written by leading experts, including editor, Russell A. Barkley, The ADHD Report examines the nature, diagnosis, and outcomes associated with the disorder, and provides a single reliable source for the latest developments in the fields of clinical management and education. In addition, each issue contains coverage of current journal articles that highlight important research in the field.

“It is nearly impossible to keep up with all the new findings in the ADHD field, but with this indispensable, trusted source I am able to readily learn about new research that spans the range from preschoolers to adults. I particularly appreciate the information on adult ADHD, an area where basic and clinical research is growing at a phenomenal rate. I routinely recommend The ADHD Report to my colleagues and trainees.”

—Julie Schweitzer, PhD, Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences and M.I.N.D Institute, University of California, Davis

“Essential reading for mental health professionals, primary care physicians, neurologists, teachers, and even family members and adults dealing with ADHD. Barkley provides the latest information in an easy-to-read format, covering developmental stages from preschool through adulthood. Published research and ongoing studies are summarized and critically evaluated; practical, clinically relevant articles on diagnosis and treatment are based on research evidence and the authors' front-line experience. I especially appreciate the unbiased, thorough evaluation of cutting-edge and controversial issues in differential diagnosis, epidemiology, and alternative treatments.”

—Mina K. Dulcan, MD, Department of Psychiatry, Anne and Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago and Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine

The ADHD Report is an indispensable tool for clinicians and researchers. It provides cutting-edge coverage of all aspects of the disorder, covering a cornucopia of vital topics in ADHD theory and intervention. The Report efficiently focuses on critical developments with a keen insight that helps the reader to get a handle on the explosion of work being produced on ADHD. Summaries, case examples, brief articles, and other features provide the reader with the wisdom of luminaries in the field. I can think of no other resource in this area that comes close to the utility, timeliness, trustworthiness, and breadth of coverage of The ADHD Report.”

—William L. Hathaway, PhD, Director, Doctoral Program in Clinical Psychology, Regent University

The ADHD Report provides a highly readable, interesting, and enjoyable way for professionals and lay persons alike to keep up with developments in the field. Articles are authored by well-recognized experts in the field and are timely and original. Topics run the full gamut, including diagnosis, treatment, accompanying symptoms and impairment, long-term outcome, and etiology, as well as advocacy and public policy.”

—Mary V. Solanto, PhD, Director, ADHD Center, The Mount Sinai Medical Center, New York, NY

“This is a superb newsletter, edited by one of the foremost authorities on the subject. It is a 'must' for any parent, clinician, school official, or individual who wants to stay current with new developments in the field.”

—Edward M. Hallowell, MD, coauthor, Answers to Distraction

“I look forward to reading each issue of The ADHD Report. The articles, which are written in a very clear, succinct style by eminent researchers and clinicians, provide invaluable, up-to-date information and research about ADHD in both children and adults. Very importantly, I have found that the information has practical applications and enhances my clinical work. While The ADHD Report is geared primarily for professionals, I have also recommended it to adults with ADHD and to parents who are raising children with this diagnosis.”

—Robert Brooks, PhD, Harvard Medical School; author of The Self-Esteem Teacher

The ADHD Report is an excellent resource for clinicians, teachers, and parents. Importantly, the Report does not shy away from controversial studies and treatment methods, but includes reviews of such methods as well as evidence of their effectiveness. This willingness to review all types of treatments and refute weak claims and data is science at its best. Dr. Barkley's contributions to ADHD research are impressive, and his efforts to transmit the latest knowledge to subscribers are to be commended. I recommend The ADHD Report to anyone who seeks to stay up to date in this field.”

—Rachel Brown-Chidsey, PhD, School Psychology Program, University of Southern Maine

“I have been receiving and thoroughly enjoying The ADHD Report since the very first issue. As a developmental/behavioral pediatrician with a practice primarily devoted to ADHD and learning disabilities, I have found this newsletter to be a tremendous aid to my practice. The mix of practical articles, research updates, and reviews, including coverage of cutting-edge findings and debates, have greatly enhanced my ability to serve my patients. It is amazing how much useful material can be crammed into 16 pages.”

—Martin Baren, MD
