You may have noticed that there are a lot of web sites out there that mention ADHD. Here at the Edge Foundation, we like to think we have some of the best information about ADHD to be found on the web. But of course we know there are other great sites out there as well. Here are our current top 5 favorite ADHD web sites (listed alphabetically).
1. ADDitude Magazine
This magazine offers tons of on-line resources for families and people with ADHD. They offer an on-line newsletter as well as a well written and content rich periodical.
2. Attention Deficit Disorder Resources
A non-profit organization dedicated to providing everything you might want to know about ADHD including articles, links, a national directory, teleclasses, podcasts, e-news, and more.
3. Bryan L. Hutchinson Blog
Bryan has recently gained media attention for publishing his memoire, One Boy’s Struggle: A Memoire: Surviving Life with Undiagnosed ADD. The book has been described as providing new insight into what it’s like to live with ADHD. The blog is aimed at promoting his book, but does give you a glimpse into Bryan’s perspective and current concerns.
4. CHADD Leadership Blog
This must-read blog is written by E. Clark Ross, the CEO of CHADD (Children and Adults with Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder.) You’ve probably already heard of CHADD’s amazing work to educate the nation, and Congress, about the special needs of people with ADHD. But you probably haven’t run across this blog. It’s a great source for up-to-the minute, scientific facts about ADHD. It also includes moving personal stories by the people who are spearheading the ADHD movement.
5. National Resource Center on AD/HD
An invaluable program of CHADD, The National Resource Center on AD/HD is the nation’s clearinghouse for science-based information about all aspects of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (AD/HD). Funded through a cooperative agreement with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the NRC provides information on this disorder which affects how millions of children and adults function on a daily basis.
