Synopsis: The Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) debate is an emotive issue which has been simmering in the medical and general community for years. Parents who decide to treat their children with ADHD medications and who welcome the changes in their child's behavior have a heavy emotional investment in believing they are helping their children. But, for some time, there have been concerns about possible misdiagnosis and over-prescription of ADHD medications. In the long term, are amphetamines and other psychotropic drugs good for inattentive and impulsive children? How robust is the medical evidence on the symptoms and diagnosis of ADHD? Are children being medicated with amphetamines for a disorder whose existence is open to debate? In Speed Up and Sit Still, author Martin Whitely dissects the issues around what he calls the ADHD industry and finds that his long journey through the ADHD debate has included many surprising twists and turns. He tackles both sides of the issue in clear readable language and finds that the ADHD debate, like an onion, has many layers.

About the Author: Martin Whitely, a former teacher, become concerned about ADHD in the mid-1990s. He currently holds a seat in the Western Australian State Parliament and is an advocate for the curtailment of medication for ADHD in young children.
