Blogs on ADHD

I recently came across a few blogs that also discuss ADD, ADHD and other attendant disabilities, and I thought it would be a good idea to call your attention to them as well. My attempt with this blog is to deliver as much information as possible to the people who need it, myself included!

The first blog on the list has an extensive list of resources you might find very helpful. I will be updating my on-site resources as well, to try and keep abreast of the information available, but I am not adverse to sending you to another blog if that will help you find the info that you need.


There are many others, and I have only listed a few of the ones on the main Google search page. I'm not sure if any of these blogs deal with ODD or OCD, but there are some wonderful stories and resources available on them, and they are definitely worth reading!

Additional Resources

Hi again! I know it's been a while since I have posted, so I want to make it up to you by giving you more resources to help with your "behavioral" child/children. I know this might sound like I'm jumping the gun by saying that, but as I have my own "behavioral" child to raise, I know I need as many resources as possible!

Some good news (I think!) My son's school has informed me that there is a program available for him for next year instead of attending a regular grade 9 class. Hallelujah!!! I have been very concerned that he will get eaten alive when he starts high school, or worse, booted out before spring break!
There are only so many things we, as parents, can do to help our kids once they hit school, so I was very pleased that there is an alternate solution for my son's needs.

Don't get me wrong, my son is very bright. But he is also very bored! He really hates school (not that I blame him, I didn't like it much either, and I'm sure most of you felt the same way,) but unfortunately, he doesn't have a choice, which in turn makes my life harder. I'm sure many of you have been, or soon will be in my shoes.

I am always on the look-out for more resource material and books that can help with my son's behaviors. I have found some that I didn't see on my last trip to my library, so I decided I should add them to the site so others could make use of them too. Hopefully there is something here that can help you as well.
