I’ve gotten quite a few questions lately about helping children with ADHD. I’ve read some really amazing things about ADHD studiies, but I do not consider myself an expert by any means.
I do, however, have a go-to-guy to whom I direct people with ADHD questions. His name is Steve Plog. He has ADHD himself.
Years back when I was writing my first book, I came across Steve’s stuff online, and it was such insightful, real help that I asked him for permission to repeat a portion of a study he did. He quite happily granted permission to use his material in the book. That book is out of print now.
If you or someone you know struggles with ADHD, I want to recommend an excellent resource for solutions and helps along the way.
Take a peek at The Results Project: http://www.resultsproject.net/.
Steve is not against medication, just a warning. He is all about being SURE that you or your child needs the medication you are on.
The thing I like most about Steve is that he calls children with ADHD “Quick Start Kids.” If you read his website, you’ll see why. ADHD kids are GIFTED!
Know what? I’ve always suspected that I am ADHD. Turns out after studying Steve’s materials, I realize that I’m right. I am. And here I just thought I was weird! Oh, to have had such insight when I was a kid. If you suspect that you are ADHD, check out The Results Project and see if you’ve been right all along.
