ADD and ADHD from a Teachers Perspective

This article is intended to be the “Reader’s Digest” version of Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). I am not someone who is certified to diagnose either of these disorders, but I am a person who has made my profession dealing with them.

The most important thing to remember is that ADD has NOTHING to do with over-activity. The attention deficit in this case can sometimes go unnoticed.

Happy Thanksgiving and thanks to all for stopping by today to visit.

I recently heard this news so I passed it along to my friends and family.

After all these stores have the audacity to stock their stores with every Christmas item imaginable. Yet, they cannot even acknowledge the fact it is Christmas?
