Another poster above gave me these links in response to my question - there is information for books in many of these too.

The only book I have read is "The Add Answer" by Dr. Frank Lawlis. He has some interesting ideas (of which I asked above but haven't gotten any responses - I guess no one has tried the method, LOL!)
I would certainly recommend reading as much as you can, and do what seems right for your family and makes sense. Each kid is different, and there are things that make a difference but don't work for the majority. One of the above web sites talks about not changing diet, but if cutting back on sugars, dyes and such helps, why not try for a bit? Besides, nutritionists say we need to eat more healthy as a nation, so it isn't going to hurt anything. Doing something like diet change may take a while, so if family and school are all for meds, having the child be successful right away may make the most sense. It all depends on your child, your family and your schooling situation. (We homeschool, so school is not a factor in our mix, but is in many others.)
