Great resource for ADD and ADHD

My last several posts have all been relating to physical disabilities. So, in keeping a more accurate reflection of the caseloads of DSS offices, let me shift my topic for this one.

A good number of students at colleges and universities that receive services from their DSS office have a diagnosis of ADD or ADHD. I recently came across a great

web site
that offers, not only the host’s professional expertise as a valuable resource for information about this disability, but has useful links to further help anybody needing more information on the matter.

The host of the web site, Dr. Thomas Brown, is a Yale-trained clinical psychologist and also maintains a private practice in Hamden, CT. specializing in assessment and treatment of high-IQ children, adolescents and adults with ADD and related problems. Additionally, Dr. Brown is an Assistant Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at the Yale University School of Medicine and is Associate Director of the Yale Clinic for Attention and Related Disorders. He has credentials as a presenter with many of the professional psychological, psychiatric, and medical organizations, in addition to working internationally in this chosen field of expertise.

I have spent a good amount of time today exploring Dr. Brown’s web site. There is more information there than I can digest and store in my mind at this time. With this in mind, it is now bookmarked as one of my professional resources. The site is invaluable as a resource for information relating to AD/HD.
Read over Dr. Brown’s site and see what you think. And, make sure to bookmark it for yourself, as it is extremely rich in content and resources.

(Note: Access Ability is not sponsored or affiliated by the organization discussed in the above post. The information is being offered on Access Ability merely as another resource to enhance further development of the DSS field.)
