ADD Resources And Support
Attention deficit disorder is America's number one childhood psychiatric disorder. There are many support groups and organizations providing up-to-date information on current research, support and parent resources. If you have more questions or concerns regarding children in your care that may have or are diagnosed as ADD, please contact your treatment coordinator or the child's therapist.
The following are a list of internet links for you to search for information. I have also included miscellaneous book titles that you may find worth while to check out from your local library. For a more complete list, contact Presidio's main office or visit our website link page. Presidio does not specifically endorse any of the web sites or books listed.
