Finding good, quality information about ADHD can be challenging. When I googled “ADHD Resources” there were over 37 million hits.
To keep things simple I suggest starting with the 4 non-profit organizations listed below. Each of these focuses on supporting folks affected by ADHD. They all provide reliable, evidence based information and resources.
I’ve noted what I think are highlights for each website.
I hope you set a timer when you visit them, there’s so much to learn.
