Do 2.7 Million Children Really Need Ritalin? An Integrative Approach to ADHD

Dr. Sanford Newmark explores the importance of the Integrative Approach – seeing the child in the context of family, friends, school and community, rather than as a set of symptoms that need to be fixed. Topics include an overview of the genetic, environmental and neurobiological aspects, non-pharmaceutical therapies including nutrition, food sensitivities, vitamin and mineral supplements, parenting, school, and complementary therapies.

Audience:  Parents and educators of students of all ages.
