"The children served in my occupational therapy practice, their families, and I are grateful to Dr. O'Dell and Dr. Cook for making Dr. Bender's work accessible! This approach is effective, simple, and easily done with commitment and consistency."

~ Amy Beaupre, M.S., OTR

If your child has been labeled hyperactive or as having attention-deficit disorder (ADD / ADHD) or any other learning disability, we think you will find this book of great interest. Within it, we present compelling evidence that effectively challenges the current medical diagnosis and treatment of hyperactivity, ADD / ADHD, and many other behavioral and learning problems. If you have found that your life is dominated by the constant disruptive behavior of a child, we will provide you with a simple, logical and accurate explanation of the major causes of this behavior, and we will offer you effective methods to eliminate behavior problems WITHOUT THE USE OF DRUGS!
