Meditation and ADHD

As a sufferer of ADD/ADHD myself I know that meditation helps. And now there's research to prove it. An article publicizing a speech on the subject entitled "Doctor to speak on new approach to treating ADHD" has this to say:
Dr. James Grant will speak about new research that shows meditation, twice a day for just a few minutes, is an effective treatment for ADHD. The presentation will include a video with ADHD kids speaking for themselves about their experiences.

According to Grant, improvements in behavior include better attention and impulse control, improved academic performance, enhanced problem solving skills and reduced stress, anxiety and anger.

Grant is western director for Consciousness-Based Education and an ADHD researcher.
Lots of adults have ADD too. And even if you don't have it, meditation can improve an already normal ability with regard to attention and make it even better!
