Huffington Post Jan15, 2014 ADHD is a complex neurobiological disorder, and it has become a lightning rod for debate in recent years.
In this excellent article, the author who has ADHD is calling attention to the Op-Ed pages of our leading news institutions being distracted by the difficulties facing accurate diagnosis and treatment rather than focusing on the benefits neuroscience has provided millions suffering with this disorder as well as their loving families.
According to Dr. Harold Levinson, this superbly focused article attempts to refocus and thus “treat” the media’s distraction with the scary and misguided “headline grabbers” negatives of ADHD to the positives of proper diagnosis and treatment. In addition, it attempts to highlight the personal, family and societal issues and tragedies posed by this under-diagnosed and under- treated disorder rather than the opposite “dramas” making headlines. Only clinicians and successfully treated patients and caring others realistically know the “life saving”benefits medically possible vs. the misguided headline grabbers having neither validity or in- depth medical experience.
About Harold Levinson, M.D.
Formerly Clinical Associate Professor of Psychiatry at New York University Medical Center, Dr. Harold Levinson is currently Director of the Levinson Medical Center for Learning Disabilities in Great Neck, Long Island, New York. He is a well known neuropsychiatrist, clinical researcher and author. His “highly original” research into the cerebellar-vestibular (inner-ear) origins and treatment ofdyslexia and related learning, attention-deficit/hyperactivity and anxiety or phobic disorders has evolved over the past four decades. Initially supported by Nobel Laureate Sir John Eccles and other outstanding cerebellar neurophysiologists and inner-ear scientists, Levinson’s research has more recently been independently validated worldwide by highly sophisticated neuroimaging brain studies.
