Welcome to a New ADHD Website

This new ADHD website was launched following the footstep of the popular book “ADHD:Revisited” that is a revolutionary overview of this common human condition, available as e-book on Amazon, Kindle Books.  In the book and this website, you not just find all the information on ADHD, but a critical review of this condition not available elsewhere. The book and the website that have been written and launched out of necessity is the result of years of  clinical observation and research. Here and in the book, ADHD comes to its first time true recognition for what it is and not what we know and we were thought thus far.

You will read here and in the book, that ADHD is not a disabling condition and associated with learning disabilities, but linked with high intelligence. You will read that ADHD is a developmental and revolutionary brain condition and not associated with attention deficit but hyper-attention. ADHD subjects have dynamic attention with shifting or switching attention and alternating attention, and that is why these subjects are very good in multi-tasking that is more and more demanded in our time.

Moreover the ADHD subjects have selective attention and that is why they get easily bored with boring tasks. You will also see, for the first time that ADHD goes beyond impulsivity that has been ill defined in diagnostic books and in the medical literature, but it is associated with “behavioural disinhibition”.  That is why, ADHD subjects, specially children are not only hyperactive and restless, but inhibited and out of control behaviourally. That is why the teenagers with ADHD are more than their peers,  drawn to substance abuse, risk taking behaviours, gambling, etc.

Welcome to a New ADHD Website that will show the true nature of ADHD unlike before!

Anxiety & Depression Survey

Struggling with Anxiety more than usual so that causes dysfunctions in one or more areas of life seems to be very common and more than the current statistics in DSM5 (Diagnostics and Statistics of Manual of Mental Disorders) 5th edition. Please take a few minutes and answer the following survey as an attempt to identify the true rate or prevalence of the common anxiety disorder that’s medically known as GAD (Generalized Anxiety Disorder). To a get close estimate of the prevalence of this condition, we ask everyone who visits this site to fill out the survey even if you don’t have no history of anxiety or depression.
