Book Description

Explore effective alternative approaches to improving the lives of those diagnosed with attention deficit disorder!

This remarkable new book offers fresh perspectives on ADD/ADHD. Even more important, it provides new direction for sufferers, introducing an ecologically based lifestyle that focuses on hands-on interactive learning. Fragments: Coping with Attention Deficit Disorder shows how to use environmental education and activities such as organic farming, community service, mission work, art, yoga, meditation, and spirituality to bring about positive change in people diagnosed with ADD or ADHD.

From author Amy E. Stein: “This book is about life. It is written for those who think they have no hope, who struggle with life, with decisions, with addiction, and in search of themselves. I do not believe traditional psychotherapy or medication are solutions for those of us who fall under the label of ADD or ADHD.”

Candidly written by a woman who, at age 25, was diagnosed as “a textbook case for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder,” this insightful book examines:
  • the pitfalls of traditional psychotherapy and medication for those diagnosed with ADD/ADHD
  • how an interactive hands-on learning environment can markedly improve the educational experience of ADD/ADHD kids
  • how an organic, holistic approach can benefit those diagnosed with ADD/ADHD
  • the correlation between agriculture and ADD/ADHD and the impact of eliminating pesticides and increasing fatty acid intake in the diets of sufferers
  • how incorporating spirituality and faith into ADD/ADHD sufferers’ lives can help to add discipline and bring greater satisfaction
  • and much more!
Five helpful appendices give you easy access to environmental education resources, agricultural resources, a sample agricultural curriculum, a sample ecology curriculum, and an environmental art curriculum.

Format:Paperback
Ms. Stein's publication, being an outstanding balance of informative, personal and scientific material, provided me with a fresh outlook on how to perceive and deal with my ADD. For years I suffered through the many negative effects that ADD had on my adult life. Being personally averse to resorting to medication whenever possible I often dealt with the ups-and-downs, as well as with the well-wishers telling me to take the pills, take the pills, take the pills. Ms. Stein's painfully personal accounts of her own dealings with ADD are a relief to the fellow sufferer. Her book reads like a novel, informs like a textbook, and cites studies like a medical journal. It is indeed a highly recommended read for anyone who comes into personal or professional contact with, or those who have, ADD.

3.0 out of 5 stars Very Interesting June 5 2003
Format:Paperback
This a very interesting account of a woman who has AD/HD. She discusses her struggles and her journey through life with AD/HD. She tells about the different options that she has taken to help manage her AD/HD and what worked for her.
This book is more of an autobigraphy than a self help AD/HD book.
