ADD/ADHD Resources 

Developing new resources is an important aspect of managing your ADD/ADHD. The internet is abundant with resources, some good some, some not. Not all the information you’ll find on the internet is accurate especially information posted on the online chats and forums. Nevertheless, you’ll find some very good information.  

Books for ADD / ADHD Adults:  [Posted  6th April 2007]  

ADD-Friendly Ways to Organize Your Life
Judith Kolberg, Kathleen Nadeau Organizing books fall short of addressing the unique needs of adults with ADD. Books about ADD may address organization/disorganization but do so in a cursory fashion and on a very small scale in what are usually long books on the subject. This is a book that has ADD-friendly advice with the ADD-er in mind. It offers organizing advice that ranges from self-help to utilizing the help of non-professionals; to using professional assistance. Thus it permits the reader to decide where they are personally in the organizing process, and what level of support will be most beneficial to their unique situation.

Understanding Women with ADHD
Kathleen Nadeau, Ph.D. and Patricia Quinn, M.D. Treatment options—including medication, psychotherapy, coaching, and organizing—are discussed, along with other critical, but overlooked issues for women, such as the use of medications during pregnancy and the interaction of hormones and ADHD symptoms. Conditions often associated with ADHD in women, including anxiety, depression, problem eating patterns, addictions, learning disabilities, and fibromyalgia are addressed, as well as ways to treat them.
