What Do You Really Know About ADHD?

Information about Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, or ADHD, is easy to find. Accurate information, however, can be harder to come by. Myths or misinformation about ADHD are plentiful, and parents need to invest time in determining what's really true.
"Myth: Kids with ADHD don't form strong or enduring relationships... FALSE. Kids with ADHD are just as capable of forming close relationships - whether with friends or family - as anyone else."
Another myth is that a lack of close relationships with parents or friends can cause ADHD. Talk to experts - psychologists or behavioral therapists who are educated about ADHD - and learn to separate truth from fiction. Good information will make you a better advocate for your child.

Bringing Attention to Disorder

Lorni Heaven's son and daughter have both been diagnosed with ADHD. When they were first diagnosed, Lorni had trouble finding good information or support. So she started her own support group.
"She added: 'Since my son's diagnosis I have tried to find out as much information about ADHD and related disorders as I can, but information and advice locally was not readily available, [or was] minimal or inconsistent."
Her Bromley ADDvice Group has made information available online, via e-mail and phone. The group has also begun having online discussions at 9 p.m. every Sunday. Source: News Shopper
