Welcome to the ADD & ADHD Blog!By
Hello and thank you for joining me!
I am thrilled to unveil my new blog.
Although the title of the blog is ADD and ADHD Blog, I will often just refer to it as ADHD. However, even when I leave out the term ADD, I still mean it as well. As of 1994, when the DSM-IV came out, the diagnosis all falls under the term ‘ADHD’. This relates to the fact that there are three subtypes of ADHD – the inattentive type (formerly just called ADD), the hyperactive impulsive type, and the combined type (which has both the inattentive and the hyperactive impulsive types involved). So, when I use the terms ADD or ADHD, I am really using them interchangeably.
What can you expect on this blog?
1) Up to date information on ADHD from a medical authority on the subject
2) Research updates
3) Transcriptions of my ADHD Audio Newsletter – Many of my subscribers have asked for written content of the ADHD Audio Newsletter – and now I am giving you the content. This blog will be updated with the different newsletters on an ongoing basis. Now you will not only be able to hear them – but you will be able to read them as well!
4) Coverage of a wide range of topics relevant to ADHD and handling it in children, teens, and adults
The great thing about a blog is that it can grow ‘organically’ – so please be sure to put comments up and I will see them! Let’s work on this together.
Thanks for joining me and watch for updates soon.
