Share a good resource for others with ADD/ADHD or for parents and caregivers
Please understand that there are many individuals that may be experiencing similar circumstances as you. Each of you may know of a resource that may help others work out solutions to their problems and questions.

Please SHARE a great  resource, whether it be an adaptive device, company, or community organization, so that everyone in the NHU Community may benefit. If each person would take a little and each person would give a little, the collective sharing of knowledge would make a significant difference for all of us.
Title: Several good resources on ADHD
Post by: NHU Community Friend on February 23, 2017, 01:25:19 PM
Hello there,
As the parent of a child living with ADHD, I am well aware of the challenges parents and children face when dealing with this type of health issue.  And while I am grateful for the resources I have found, I know many people don't have the time or ability to get the vital information they need to help parent a child with ADHD.
