This understanding of the wide-ranging facets of attention has emerged from my study of children, adolescents, and adults diagnosed with attention deficit disorder.

It is as though individuals with ADD syndrome cannot stay alert unless they are engaged actively in a behavior that provides steady motoric, social, or cognitive feedback. They seem to need to feel themselves in motion, hear their own voices, or be very actively engaged in internal conversation with what they are trying to read. Though the problem of daytime drowsiness aºicts many with ADD syndrome even when they are not tired, heavy eyelids sometimes appear for a di¤erent reason. Many with ADD syndrome report that they are often tired during the day because they have chronic and severe diªculties in settling into sleep, even when they are very tired and want to fall asleep.
One of my tutors said that I am a “passive reader,” that I just don’t get active enough in paying attention to what I am reading. It’s strange, though—I don’t usually have this problem when I’m reading science fiction or other things I’ve picked for myself. But no matter how hard I try, I just can’t get hooked into what I’m reading when I have to read something that I haven’t chosen. This di¤erence between reading something self-selected and reading assigned materials is reminiscent of the distinctions described in Chapter 1 where Larry could attend very well to playing hockey and Monica could attend intently to video games, but neither was able to mobilize similar engagement for schoolwork.
