After a hot summer, record-breaking earthquake, Hurricane Irene, and a week of flooding, this weekend it was my turn to escape from DC to what Presidents, Vanderbilts, Rockefellers, and royalty have all agreed is one of the finest resorts in the world. Since 1778, the well-to-do have been traveling to the Greenbrier Resort in West Virginia to experience the therapeutic effects of the natural sulphur springs and fresh mountain air. Although I consider myself more comfort-soled than well-heeled, the glamour of America's grand old resorts has always been a lure. With the advantage of an indulgent husband and special rate from the Greenbrier, my hopes for a memorable anniversary weekend were realized.
In this clip I interviewed Dr. Patricia Quinn, a developmental pediatrician in Washington, D.C., and expert in child development, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), and learning disabilities. Dr. Quinn is the author of more than 20 books on ADHD, including the best-selling "Putting on the Brakes: A Young People's Guide to Understanding Attention Deficit Disorder," is on the board of ADDitude magazine, and is currently the director of the National Center for Girls and Women with ADHD.
During this interview Dr. Quinn discusses the signs of ADHD, how to help a child deal with ADHD at home and at school, updates on medications used in the treatment of ADHD, and the differences in how boys and girls experience ADHD.
