Great Article on ADHD

Friedman’s article stresses that the hunter/gatherers lead a life conducive to moving around a lot, and our modern-classroom style simply doesn’t allow for the activity and multi-tasking that some NEED.  I would argue that is true, and an experiential learning environment is always best for kids.  I would also argue that we should set our kids up for success in the classroom, and that means feeding them a balanced, individualized diet that will help them learn without sugar highs and lows.

I think he is on to something, I just wish he had looked bigger and saw other factors that might contribute to ADHD.
