Having a child with any kind of disability can mean you need awareness of and access to different kinds of resources. This is also true for adults with disabilities. Finding this information is sometimes difficult since it can be buried in website pages, printed materials, or other hard-to-find places. We want to make it easier for you to find ADHD resources and support available to you.
In this article, I am providing an easy-to-access list of resources for individuals with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). This list is not comprehensive as there are many many more great resources available. But, hopefully, this list can provide some needed information and be a starting point as you build your list of resources.
