I was diagnosed with ADHD shortly after my 7 yr son and immediately began to scour the Web for info. There is a lot of info but you have to take the time to find it - this magazine brings all of that info together in print and online in short easy to read (particularly to those of us with ADHD) format. I want to know all the latest info on ADHD and now I can without the previous time and effort required. Because there's no "cure" for ADHD, it's a daily struggle (even with medicine) to find what works for you to help you overcome the frustrations and limitations resulting from the condition. The magazine helps remind me that I'm not alone in my struggles and that many other people have faced and are facing the exact same struggles. There's a strange comfort in kowing that. And I've learned a lot of useful tips which help me keep the negative aspects of the condition in check while allowing the positive aspects to come out. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this magazine! You will learn so much in each issue!
Great resource- better than many books on the subject
I am a pediatrician with 2 ADHD children. Although I have alot of technical knowledge on the subject, I have found this magazine extremely helpful in terms of suggestions for problem-solving day-to-day issues, and keeping things in perspective (if they discuss the same problems we're having in a magazine, then the challenges my kids face and my less-than-perfect parenting are not failures of discipline and self-control- we're just part of the ADHD community!) Very straightforward, balanced, but mainstream viewpoint. Lots of practical articles about living with ADHD in all settings and behavioral/ cognitive interventions. Doesn't push medication, although it does provide information and tips on dealing with side-effects. Also light on coverage of alternative therapies. Plenty for both affected adults, teens and parents of ADHD children.
Everything you wanted to know about ADD
I had no idea there was so much help, resources or products out there to help those of us with ADD. This magazine AND the Web site of the same name were essential when I was first diagnosed.
I am the single parent of two ADD youngsters. This publication has wonderful information and helpful hints for coping with the challenges and wonderments that are presented when raising a child with ADD. The magazine covers all ages, young through college.
The BEST EVER MAGAZINE with great advice & ideas!!!
This magazine was very informative, interesting and had great ideas, suggestions and advice for children. I am so glad i ordered this and i will continue receiving this magazine. This is worth every penny paid. I am certain you will think the same after receiving you first copy. A FIVE STAR MAGAZINE*****
Overall a great magazine
This has been one of the most helpful magazines re ADD/ADHD issues that I have come across. Would encourage anyone who is touched by this issue to subscribe.
As time goes on I am finding the articles less and less engaging. I'm no longer excited to get my magazine.
