ADD/ADHD Web Resources

The World Wide Web has become a place loaded with information.  I have compiled a list of sites on attention deficit disorder.  Many are Canadian focused; check them out and sign up on their mailing lists to keep in the loop and check out their blogs.  You can also join my Facebook page as I insert articles and information from these and other sites daily.  You can find my page at www.facebook.com/coachmaddy

If you have found other sites on ADD/ADHD or relevant topics please feel free to share them as this list is not exhaustive but a basic starting point.

  • www.addvance.com

The founders of this site, Patricia Quinn, M.D. and Kathleen Nadeau, Ph.D., are both internationally recognized authorities on ADD (ADHD) and authors of many books for children, teens, and adults. Initially ADDvance.com focused only on the long-overlooked needs of women and girls with ADD (ADHD). Now this new and expanded site has been developed to address the varied needs of all people with ADD (ADHD) across the lifespan.

Since 1990, we have built the world’s largest collection of ADHD-related books, videos, training programs, games, professional texts and assessment products. Because of it’s tremendous depth, and the quality of the products we carry, our catalog is a recommended source of help in practically every book written on ADHD… and is provided to patients by hundreds of health professionals across the country.

 

I hope this list helps and I look forward to more of your suggestions.
