ADHD Resources

ADD or ADHD is a brain disorder. Or as we like to call it, a brain difference. This brain difference causes kids and teens to experience difficulty with attention, concentration, self-control and self-esteem. 

ADHD has many symptoms. Some symptoms at first may look like normal behaviors for a child, but ADHD makes them much worse and occur more often.

ADHD children may:

  • Get distracted easily and forget things often
  • Switch too quickly from one activity to the next
  • Have trouble with directions
  • Daydream too much
  • Have trouble finishing tasks like homework or chores
  • Lose toys, books, and school supplies often
  • Fidget and squirm a lot
  • Talk nonstop and interrupt people
  • Run around a lot
  • Touch and play with everything they see
  • Be very impatient
  • Blurt out inappropriate comments
  • Have trouble controlling their emotions.

If you have a child with ADHD, then you will find many helpful resources on our website. We hope that you will come back often as our resources are updated regularly!
