“What you should know about ADHD symptoms and treatment before talking with your doctor about a diagnosis and treatment.”
Results from this survey provide useful information to parents seeking effective ADHD treatment for their child that complements what has been learned from research-based clinical trials. In particular, the findings highlight that no treatment as currently offered in community settings is likely to produce benefits that most parents will be satisfied and that persistence in finding what works best for one’s child may often be required.
ADHD is not a learning disability, but it may affect how you learn. By becoming knowledgeable about your learning disability, you can learn to tackle it.
What is ADHD? How can it be treated? How is ADHD diagnosed? These are just a few of the many basic questions asked and answered in this primer to help create a better understanding of the disorder for the diagnosed, and the parents of the diagnosed.

Parents often feel the need to snoop into their teen’s private life; but, when is it appropriate and when is it not? Giving a child privacy as to what they hide in his or her room is a privilege for being trustworthy. However, if your child is partaking in an incriminating habit/behavior, it may be necessary to “spy” on him or her. There are effective ways to “spy” on your child, and there are proper ways to confront your child about what you, the parent, discovers.
