As a society, we have a responsibility to protect our children....In Debunking ADHD, Michael Corrigan makes a clear, convincing case that if we want to do that, we need to stop drugging them, and find other ways to help them grow up and thrive.

Read this book! Debunking ADHD provides a clear-cut and compelling case for meeting needs instead of pushing meds. Thanks to Dr. Corrigan for providing this easy-to-read yet scientifically solid guidebook! If Dr. Corrigan had written this book before the ADHD movement ramped up, schools would look a lot different today.
