Congratulations to our Back to School ADHD kit Winner R. Gray Eggert!

My Back to School message is for every mom of an ADHD child: 

I hope you find our curated collection of ADHD books and planner as useful as we have found these tools. 

I know when you send your child off to school, ADHD adds an extra layer of stress. Preparing for the transition with advice from nationally known experts like those in our book collection can help take the edge off and lower stress levels.
Doing some yoga breathing helps too! When you start to feel overwhelmed, take a deep breath, hold for three seconds then slowly exhale all the air held in your lungs. Repeat this two more times. You will feel more centered, focused and ready to take on the challenge of a new school year.

Often just getting out of the house on time for school seems like enough of a challenge. Yet as parents of kids with ADHD, this can be just one of many challenges we and our children face. Does your son or daughter struggle to make friends? Or advocate with teachers? Read Dr. Hughes' tips and advice grounded in clinical research and personal experience on her recent post on the Shared Abilities website.
