Who contributed to the development of Overcoming ADHD Without Medication: A Guidebook for Parents and Teachers?
Overcoming ADHD Without Medication was initially inspired by the work of a number of professionals and teachers in Paterson, NJ. A reading coach who works with children with ADHD daily, a school psychologist who was concerned with what she termed an “epidemic of ADHD” in her school, and a special education teacher shared their insights and concerns. Other teachers contributed their ideas. Russell Barkley provided personal impetus for further research, as did associate professor of psychology at Michigan State University Joel Nigg, PhD. Many others contributed to the information in Overcoming ADHD, including David Rabiner, PhD, chief research scientist at Duke University, Daniella Barroqueira, PhD of Illinois State University, and Iowa State University public relations. Ideas from special education teachers and social workers were included in addition to the research included.
