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,

PS to Monday’s Post

David expressed his profound and sincere gratitude more than several times for the way we handled the medication mix-up. He went to bed early and is now getting a good night’s sleep. 🙂

Medication Changes

It was several years ago when we decided to consider medication for David’s ADHD. Most parents don’t want their child on medication and we were no exception. However, something that his first grade teacher said during one of our conversations … Continue reading
