New resources for parents of children with ADHD

According to the National Resource Center on ADHD. “Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a condition affecting children and adults that is characterized by problems with attention, impulsivity, and overactivity.  It affects between 5-8 percent of school age children, and between 2-4 percent of adults”.

For people who suffer ADHD, typical distractions can affect their lives more dramatically than those who don’t encounter this challenge. As a personal & professional organizer, I cross paths with people with ADHD often. I help people create systems in their homes so that their daily routines can become easier day by day. I value the benefits of an organized day and keeping the stress away, because without these systems, daily life can be very difficult.

Meet-Up group in Chicago formed; December 2012, for parents of children with ADHD. This parent support group will not only share their personal experience but also schedule professionals to speak. They will educate and provide resources on how to manage those challenges.  For more information on the support group please contact their group’s organizer: Maggi Steib via this link.
