  1. Thank you for posting these resources. My husband and I are raising our nephew and two weeks ago he just started meds for ADD. We've already seen a slight improvement in his behavior and academic progress.

    As a teacher, I have lots of experience working with students who have ADD or ADHD. It's a different ballgame when it's your child who has it.
