Summary
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder is a complicated behavioral disorder which is difficult to diagnose, manifests itself in adults as well as children and has far reaching effects on the lives of those who suffer from it, as well as on their families. This remarkable film shows in a short space of time many variants - boys and girls of pre-school age through adulthood. Children with ADHD have difficulty focusing attention, act on sudden impulses, and are hyperactive. Their brains do not seem able to organize and prioritize thoughts and stimulation. These qualities lead to failure in school and at jobs, low self esteem, and an inability to sustain peer relationships. Children can be a danger to themselves and others. We learn that one of the children set a fire without realizing the consequences; another steals, another bites and causes disturbances in school. One mother recounts with pain the suicide of her son. The only available pharmaceutical treatment is Ritalin, a compound similar to cocaine. Many parents want to avoid its use and try other strategies which are shown here. The film will sensitize educators and parents to a complex behavioral problem
