Sometimes "I Don't Know" Means "I Don't Know"....

Hello to all, My name is Sean. About 4 years ago my oldest boy was diagnosed with ADHD and life has been a roller coaster ever since. Well, in truth, it was a roller coaster long before the psychologists spoke the four letter word in her office that day but at least after that the roller coaster had a name.At any rate, I dove in to learn all I could in an effort to help my son with the challenges he faced. Books, Blogs, YouTube and support groups, I ingested everything I could get me hands on…See More

How Would YOU Like To Be Labeled?

New Controversy

More recent controversy about ADD ADHD - about the harm of "labeling".

To do or not to do, That is the question. To do lists?

"Lists don't work for me!"

Some people with ADD ADHD have told me that to do lists don't work for them.  That may be so, because we are each unique, but my guess is they aren't using them properly.  Then they won't work.

The Esquire article was lengthy,                                                                                         but I was finally able to focus enough to read the whole thing, word by word, by reading it during breaks in the championship basket ball game. I have trouble reading anything of length on the computer  or i Phone.

Beliefs, Where Do They Come From?

According to research, we all do this, ADD ADHD or not:

Most of our beliefs come from our emotional responses; we then dig up data to support them.

If we come across information that refutes or doesn't support our belief, we either don't notice it or we refute it,…

Errors about ADD ADHD and Sensationalizing

Re recent outburst of sensationalized articles against the diagnosis and the treatment of ADD ADHD:

"Kids are being given medicines to control their behavior."

No, kids are given medicines so that they can control their behavior - not get in trouble for blurting out or being unable to stay in their seat; turning in their homework instead of losing it, not forgetting the assignment, or just not…
