ADHD: Good Science or Dangerous Trend? By Sam Goldstein


Parents, this is an interesting and detailed article about the ADHD diagnosis and what to be conscious about. 

“Over the past twenty-three years, I have had the honor of serving as Managing

Editor and now Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Attention Disorders. Along with my mentor, the late Keith Conners, we started the Journal as an alternative outlet for research on Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and related conditions. I am very proud that under my stewardship as Editor-in-Chief over the past twelve years, the Journal has grown from four to fourteen issues per year. The Journal is ranked in the top 25% of all science journals in the world and in the top one third of all mental health and psychiatric journals. Recent issues of the Journal of Attention Disorders have focused exclusively on topics including genetics and biology of the condition, family issues, and co-morbid disorders. The April 2019 Journal issue focused exclusively on issues related to assessment. Eleven articles from authors on three continents attests to the growth of good scientific research in this field as well as the interest and recognition worldwide that ADHD is blind to ethnicity, culture or socioeconomic status.”
