Overview

Before Attention Deficit Disorder, or ADD, was recognized as a condition, many neurodiverse children were dismissed as naughty, wilful, or lazy. Modern educators appreciate that a volatile relationship with learning, concentrating, and conforming to group expectations is seldom a choice.

Scattered Minds debates the origins of ADD and presents pathways towards healing, with acceptance and understanding at its core. Gabor Maté spent his career working among Canada's marginalized citizens, specifically addicts, and was diagnosed late in life with ADD. Maté draws insights from his patients, family, and personal experiences to explain, illustrate, and reassure.

Parents of ADD children will find workable, research-based strategies that provide hope for a radical improvement in relations, while others will find eye-opening explanations for their own behaviors. If you have an ADD diagnosis, Maté's blend of neurological analysis and relatable storytelling will reassure you.

"The hallmark of ADD is an unwilled, automatic 'tuning out', a frustrating nonpresence of mind."
