Gallo, A, Britmayer, B. 1993. Mothers' perceptions of sibling adjustment and family life   
       in childhood chronic illness. Journal of Pediatric Nursing 8(5):318-323.
       The purpose of this study was to examine variations in sibling behavioral 
       adjustment in relation to mothers' perceptions of the illness experience and family 
       life. Differences were found between mothers who rated healthy siblings either 
       poorly or very well adjusted. The findings of this study suggest that when a mother 
       shows evidence of burden, she feels a lack of control.

Barkley R,  Fischer M, Fletcher K, Smallish, L. 2003. Does the treatment of 
     attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder with stimulants contribute to drug 
     use/abuse? Pediatrics 111:97-109.
     The result of an intense thirteen year study, this report examines the 
     correlation between the use of stimulants to treat ADHD and the potential 
     consequent use of illegal substances. The authors, in an attempt to research 
     a possible negative side effect of ADHD medication, studied 147 individuals 
     and the effects of stimulant medication. The report discusses the treatment of 
     ADHD with medication in general, beyond the specific side effects, and 
     includes commentary on the societal implication of stimulant treatment for 
     such a widespread behavioral disorder.

National Institutes for Health. 1998. Diagnosis and treatment of attention deficit 
      hyperactivity disorder. NIH Consensus Statement 16(2):1-37. 
      This statement was prepared at a conference by experts on ADHD. The 
      report investigates a number of treatments for ADHD and evaluates the 
      effectiveness of these treatments. It suggests that ADHD is a growing 
      concern and proposes that ADHD be addressed as a problem within the field 
      of public health. The work also identifies the societal implications of treatment 
      with stimulants. The statement presents the information in a format that is 
      unbiased and maintains that individual treatment plans are necessary. The 
      conclusions are drawn based on what is in the best interest of the individual 
      with ADHD and the people around him/her. It does not rush to any           
      conclusions, but focuses on providing in-depth information for professionals    
      who work with this disorder.

      The Laboratory for Computer Science's strategy has been to develop human  
      language technology within the context of real application domains. This 
      strategy helps to illuminate critical technical issues, demonstrates the 
      usefulness of the technology, and allows real people to access information 
      and solve real problems. The Voyager urban navigation and exploration 
      system has served as their primary platform for multilingual conversational 
      systems. Pegasus, a spoken language interface to the SABRE reservation 
      system, has been used for the development of displayless conversational 
      systems. The Galaxy effort is a distributed architecture for accessing on-line    
      information using spoken input.

American Academy of Pediatrics. 2001. Clinical practice guideline: treatment of 
      the school-aged child with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder. Pediatrics 
      108(4): 1033-44.
      This document makes a number of recommendations regarding the diagnosis   
      and treatment of ADHD. Unlike many other references, this report 
      emphasizes a thorough diagnosis and understanding of the severity of ADHD 
      in individuals before beginning any method of treatment. The article 
      acknowledges that many individuals with ADHD are affected differently and 
      sometimes have dissimilar symptoms. It also reviews the effectiveness of 
      short term and long term treatment options and concludes that a number of 
      follow-ups is necessary to treat the disorder as the individual ages and 
      symptoms continue to fluctuate. Used as a guideline for ADHD treatment, this 
      reference is unique due to its circulation within the medical community. It 
      details the steps necessary for a successful diagnosis, and the subsequent 
      course of treatment to be prescribed by a physician. It explains the role of the 
      doctor and family in the process of treatment and provides information on 
      gauging the effectiveness of any individual's method of treatment.
