Welcome. For an adult with ADD the details of managing a business can be a difficult task. In my lastest NewsNote I discuss the benefits of using an assistant to help with some of those chores. It might mean the difference between success and failure.
The focus of this site is Attention Deficit Disorder, an important condition affecting five to eight per cent of children and up to six per cent of adults. ADD can be responsible for difficulty in learning, problems with peers, and poor self esteem. In adults it can affect marital relationships and job performance.
It is my belief that successful treatment of ADD is far more likely if the patient and family understand the condition. That is why, over fifteen years ago, I began a newsletter called the Epstein Quarterly, which has now become a monthly publication, "Epstein ADD NewsNote." You can access all our past NewsNotes and a selection of updated Newsletters in our NewsNote and Newsletter libraries.
If you'd like to receive my monthly NewsNotes by email, please sign up. It's a great feature and I hope you'll take advantage of it. I hope the site is useful for you in understanding ADD and its treatment. Please let me know if you have suggestions for its improvement.
A note from our ADD Calendar: Make sure you are ready as the school year begins. In general, students do better the first marking period and some parents take this to mean that medication isn't necessary. That would be a mistake, so if you are thinking of making a change, please contact your doctor first. Also, put on your calendar to plan to attend the annual CACLD conference held in October.
