Monroe A. Gross, M.D. is available to speak about ADD/ADHD in adults, teenagers and children.
Dr. Gross enjoys speaking to groups about ADD/ADHD in children, teenagers and adults. Talks and discussions focus mainly on the following topics:
- An enlarged clinical definition of ADD/ADHD which includes ten brain behaviors, not just the three described by the DSM-IV.
- ADD/ADHD is not a disorder to be treated primarily with psychotherapy.
- What is the desired clinical response to proper ADD/ADHD medication treatment?
- People with ADD/ADHD brain chemistry may not be candidates for medical treatment.
- The inheritance of ADD/ADHD is best described genetically as following an autosomal dominant pattern. In simple language, you cannot have an ADD/ADHD child without at least one parent having ADD/ADHD.
- Why are untreated ADD/ADHD parents often reluctant to place their children in a medical treatment program?
- In addition to being a cause of learning disability, ADD/ADHD brain chemistry is at the root of many of society's most pressing ills. Why is it common for people with ADD/ADHD to be involved with, for example, alcoholism, spousal and child abuse, phobic behavior, drug addiction, bulimia and other eating disorders, and compulsive gambling?
- What is the evidence that ADD/ADHD brain chemistry is a predisposing factor for criminality?
