What others are saying about "Mistaken for ADHD"

I am so grateful to Dr. Frank Barnhill (aka "Dr. Huggie Bear") for writing MISTAKEN FOR ADHD. Far too many children are labeled with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and put on risky prescription medications to supposedly "fix" this problem. Unfortunately, these kids do NOT have a drug deficiency but rather a nutritional one that Dr. Barnhill helps parents figure out. Sometimes increasing things like Vitamin D levels, improving sleep, and feeding kids a proper diet that cuts down on blood sugar spikes to normalize blood glucose is all it takes to make changes come about. Yes, just taking a pill is a faster way to see behavioral improvements. But aren't those who will comprise the next generation worth the effort to invest in them the time and energy to implement effective strategies for bringing about change in their lives without subjecting them to the risks of taking a pharmaceutical? Of course they are. Plus, your child doesn't deserve being slapped with a label of ADHD that will stigmatize them for the rest of their lives. GET THIS BOOK and read why Dr. Barnhill is so passionate about this subject. – Jimmy Moore

If you're a parent whose child is diagnosed or being assessed for ADHD, you need this remarkable book. Dr. Barnhill outlines nearly 50 conditions which mimic ADHD, and you need to know just how easy it is to have your child wrongly labeled.
Dr. Barnhill has ADHD, and completely understands the condition and all its ramifications, so you'll benefit from his personal and medical advice.
Some of the conditions that can be mistaken for ADHD are: sleep apnea, poor grades, reading problems, anemia, thyroid disorders and depression.
Read the book to make sure your child does not have ADHD. My son was misdiagnosed and I wish I'd had this book to guide me. -Pat Wyman

Often asked to treat children's ADHD because their medication isn't working, Frank Barnhill, MD has learned that in far too many cases the child doesn't have ADHD at all, but one of over forty other "zebras" that are can look just like it in the tall grass of a misdiagnosis crisis. Dr. Barnhill likens the many illnesses, diseases, and disorders for which children are mislabeled ADHD to zebras because, like a zebra hiding in tall grass, the true malady is often missed. The adverse effects of misdiagnosing a child in this way are astounding, not only because the "zebra" goes untreated, but especially when prescribed ADHD medication exacerbates the real disease. In some cases it can even be fatal.
Has ADHD become a fad diagnosis thanks to the media and pharmaceutical industry's hype? I think so. When a parent can't control a child, or when a teacher sees disruptive behavior in the classroom, the easy answer is, "This kid has ADHD. Put him on meds, and our problems will be solved."
Treating a child with ADHD medication may work wonders if that child actually has the disorder, but do not expose him or her to the many terrible side effects of those medications without being 100% sure. This book will tell you how to avoid a disruptive and possibly life-threatening diagnosis. The problem is that many doctors, not sufficiently trained in diagnosing ADHD, will make the assessment and prescribe medication in one visit, sometimes without even seeing the child. If that has happened to your child, STOP. Read this book! Learn all the pertinent information a doctor should have. Get a second opinion. Not until the "zebras" have been ruled out, can anyone be sure.
This book is thorough, easy to understand, well organized, enlightening, and hard to put down. I recommend that every parent, teacher, clinician, and counselor who works with children read this book. It is of vital importance. It can make the difference between a child's happiness and misery, between his future success and failure.  Janet Muirhead Hill, author of many middle-grade books
