Dear Kans,
If you look elsewhere within Health24, there is a section containing basic informaton about a host of disorders, including ADD. Also, if you do a simple web search, perhaps on a seach engine like Google ( ) you will find a large variety of sites with the sort of material you seek. Choose particularly tose coming from major academic and research facilties, or national mental health organizations, as some of those set up by individual eccentrics can provide very wacky and unreliable information !
