Dr. Barbara C. Fisher is the author of three prior books on ADD/ ADHD. Trained as a neuropsychologist, she has been involved in the diagnosis of ADD/ADHD for over 20 years. On the cutting edge of assessing ADD/ADHD with neuropsychological testing, she does not rely upon self-report measures for diagnosis. Rather, she has used the same comprehensive battery of tests over time to demonstrate when the problem is purely ADD Inattentive disorder and when there is the impact of additional issues beyond ADD, which has resulted in more positive effects for treatment.
