Re: Resources I feel are really good.

Great list, thanks! =)

May I be so bold as to suggest adding the ADHD articles from Health and Life to the list? They have coverage of important medication topics that are not findable elsewhere and do a good job with ADHD in general.

I found this in the childs adhd link(first link),from you Ginnie,think this applies for adults as well....

I believe it to be a great source on its own...how i like to recieve info


Want to write more about this,but speaks for itself.

ok,a little.....

It is not often i have seen anything,resembling similarities between work and school adult adhd and child adhd.....but this covers the lot,without complication for me.

Will be dipping back in your well soon...GB
(realised what i had wrote,but leaving it in...oh my,there i go again,typical adhd,again and again...i always spoil everything at the end.)

p.s,do you have anything from russell barkley?
(i will be back and fourth for years)

Re: Resources I feel are really good.

The first link is from great schools theres some excellent stuff on that sight I should have put the barkley links in! I'll get to it! Eventually I may have to ask one of the supers to put this in moderation so it can be cleaned up and organized better. I'll keep adding stuff.

Re: Resources I feel are really good.

CADDRA the Canadian ADHD Resource Alliance www.caddra.ca is where my psch suggested I go. Lots of good info on diagnosis and medications (a few of the meds are specific to Canada)

Centre for ADD/ADHD Advocacy Canada www.caddac.ca . On the left side of the main page is a videos section. The Barkley videos (from their conference) and others are there including Gina Pera talking about You, Me and Adult ADHD.

[quote=ginniebean;905608]These were innitially posted by Sirrah.

Ginniebean, Thank you so much for "introducing me" to Russell Barkley. He explains things in a way that no one else could. I found his website & bought a book. So many helpful things, but mostly realizing that acceptance is key. Otherwise one spends too much time on things one cannot change & not enough time on things one can.

Re: Resources I feel are really good.

man do i need to work on internalizing my perception just spent 3 hours reading and watching Dr. B. im just sad as hell and havnt even fully accepted I got this yet. I utterly agree with him about it being a developmental neurogenetic disorder. And it is a total shame and sham it was named the way it was. It is viewed as a minimal disorder of minimal importance such as after childhood even by the majority of medical professionals I've met/know. Makes me want to become a research and public education psychologist.

Talking Re: Resources I feel are really good.

dear seth: i can relate. Barkley used to have a big influence on my mindset about my ADD in a kind of downer way, but also, I guess important for making sure people get the seriousness of the downside. I was so glad to run into what i think is a way better understanding of the advantages and disadvantages of the ADD brain at Dr Sterling's site and even better in his new book on kindle at Amazon. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B005CMHGGM

I worry a bit about researchers who are too tied to the pharma industry and how much that might influence their focus. I am hoping for a better future for all us ADDers, but, I worry big time, especially with the ongoing shortage of medications and a governement that is not concerned abuot our right to better access for evaluations, treatment and medications. it's a shame....

So, best wishes Seth and keep Anchorage cool!

Re: Resources I feel are really good.

This guy really talks about ADHD in a manner that's easily understood.

You have to scroll down it's the second video on the page. #802 Adults with ADHD.
