I would like to find a program or something that caters to my 7 year old daughter. She has ADD and is not medicated. I do not want to put her on medication to alter her personality and mind. I want her to be who she is and not have to depend on a medication that will alter her temporarily.

I have tried quite a few "ADD/ADHD professionals" for my ADD, none of which knew a thing about ADD's main problems of Time Management and Organization.
For organization, I don't think a Psychologist/Counselor is what you need. Try contacting the National Association of Professional Organizers (www.napo.net (http://www.napo.net)), or The National Study Group on Chronic Disorganization (http://www.nsgcd.org) , for a professional organizer with ADD/ADHD experience in the Tampa area. I too, have problems with Organization. I had to sell my comapany several years ago for the same reason... lack of organization. I am presently going it on my own as far as the therapy (Organization and Time management) goes. If you find a professional that works miracles for you...please let me know.
I am looking for an organization/time management buddy/buddies in the Tampa/St.Pete/Clearwater area , if interested, please contact me.

Thanks and Good Luck.

If you have up-dated information on a source already provided this is the place to put it - If you have any additions as to where there is a support group for parents as well as ADD adults them selves, families ect this is the thread to add that information -


I am trying to organize these areas and stream line the information so it can be easily located however this area can only be as good as the information members living in the area provide

Support/Social Group for Adults with ADD in Altamonte Springs/Orlando area
http://www.meetup.com/The-Altamonte-Attention-Deficit-Disorder-Meetup-Group/

I started the group because there was a waiting list! Of course, dealing w/ ADD folks we are still getting off the ground. The group is private, so no information about you will show to the general public surfing meetup.com.
The first meetup I scheduled will not be taking place, since no one as yet has actually joined. I will schedule something for May. If you want more information visit the meetup group (and join!) or contact me directly.

Ok, I actually just changed the name of the group - http://www.meetup.com/The-Altamonte-ADD-Social-Club/

I think we might be more wanting a group of 'friends' that have ADD and understand us, more than just sitting around in group therapy. It's worth a shot, anyway! We'll probably have some group meetings, but for now I'm going to work on building up a social group of fun, spontaneous ADDers.
