Re: ADHD Across Lifespan - Free Online Course -- March 2013

Thanks, it would be great to all take this course together and discuss. I started a course recently but it became too much for me, I didnīt have the time to do all the reading, a shame because it was called The social context of mental health and illness.

Letīs do it guys, itīs free.

THanks for the info.

The more we can get these out there the better and the more we will have knowledgeable people on ADHD.

Re: ADHD Across Lifespan - Free Online Course -- March 2013

A suggestion for watching these videos:

Very often the do not include the slides.

There is a very good free program called Picpick that allows you to capture them and save to the hard drive as a jpg for later review.

Free and good are words that go together well.

Thanks for pointing this out! I missed your post the first time around.

It begins next week! I'm excited.

I'm new here, so I don't want to rush in and take over, but I would definitely appreciate if we had a new weekly thread for each chapter, so that we can go over the materials together. That, to me, would make the class so much more practical, since I'm taking it in hopes of better understanding myself and my methods of navigating society.

That sounds like a great idea. Feel free to start a new thread in the "Higher Education" section for group review/discussion of the materials presented in an online course, webinar, or workshop.
