Five million children each year are misdiagnosed as suffering from ADD. They do not have Attention Deficit Disorder. In fact, no such condition exists!. Those 5 million children exhibit what Martha Burge describes as "Five Intense Personality Types."
ADHD coach Martha Burge proposes that those suffering from what is commonly understood as ADHD are not sick or impaired. They are just different, and with the appropriate therapy, can become exceptional human beings.
The ADD Myth explains:
The five intense personality traits: sensual, psychomotor, intellectual, creative, and emotional
Where intense people fit on the spectrum of personality types
Why the medical profession should seek alternative explanations for ADHD
Includes stories, practical steps, and daily practices for developing one's intense nature with the least amount of suffering. Burge also includes her own story of having both of her children diagnosed with ADHD, the serious reactions they had to drug treatment, and how she began her search for an alternative approach to help them.
