Some time ago I stumbled onto this website and found it to be immensely helpful in our continuing quest to treat and manage ADD / ADHD.  ADDClasses.com offers virtual support and continuing education in the field of Attention Deficit Disorder. The teleseminars are offered free of charge for a period of time (registration is required) and also, for a period of time, you can download the mp3 recordings of the seminar for a nominal fee. Not only can I store it on my computer for future reference, but I can burn a CD so that my husband can use his workday commute to keep up with the information and direction that David and I are trying to incorporate in our homeschool and our daily lives. A huge thumbs up for this one!

I recently listened to a teleseminar hosted by ADDClasses.com and the guest speaker was Laurie Dupar of Coaching for ADHD. Her topic was The Top Three ADD / ADHD Medication Pitfalls and How to Avoid Them. Not only did she offer a wealth of information about medications, she also offered a couple of tools to the seminar participants. One is a list of key questions to ask the prescribing doctor for ADD / ADHD medications. The other is a medication log to assess the effectiveness of a change in medication. Since we are in a medication evaluation mode right now, these tools will be invaluable!

I thought I would pass this along. Hope you find it helpful 🙂

Best regards,
