CHADD was created in 1987 in response to a lack of resources for parents and their children struggling with ADHD. Their goals include serving as clearinghouse for evidence-based information on ADHD, to support families and individuals with ADHD, and to advocate for policy that addresses the needs of those with ADHD.
These interactive spy games from WGBH are ideal for kids with ADHD or who are a little disorganized. Funded by the U.S. Department of Education and road-tested by research professionals, these free games are here to help you get through those long homework nights. Each game is designed to teach useful skills and strategies, while continually encouraging players to complete increasingly difficult tasks. To increase interest, the FFFBI Academy uses a humorous spy theme and frequent reinforcements for successful game play.
The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) provides an overview of ADHD and its symptoms, causes, diagnosis, and treatment.
The Child Mind Institute offers tools for students with ADHD in school and over the summer, as well as guides for parents and educators for addressing ADHD with their children and students.
