Whad’ya mean NEW to ADD?
Here are some possible answers:
- Diagnosed [dx'd] in the last three months
- Dx’d in the last YEAR, but still struggling and don’t really understand WHY
- Dx’d EVER, but suspect you are still “under-functioning” and don’t know what else to do
- Your CHILD fits in either of the three categories above
- You SUSPECT ADD – in yourself or a loved one – and are wondering if you need to explore diagnosis – no matter HOW you feel about the meds issue
NEW means new to ANY of “The ADD Basics” – no matter WHO you are or how long you’ve been working with ADD in any fashion (even as a professional, by the way).
- I’ll bet you a year of free coaching that, even if you THINK you know
ADD fairly well already, what you don’t know still will surprise you –
and could change your life.
- Some day I hope to have time to add a few quizzes, but for now . . .
what’s the harm in checking them out just to see if you already
know everything you think you’ll find there?
- They will be a great review, if nothing else!
