Having a youth with ADHD is not significantly different than having a youth with ex. Diabetes. One must learn special skills to look after either one. Both types of youth are prescious and special and both need special care and understanding of their respective disorders. The Diabetes Association helps parents of youth with Diabetes, Excalibur ADHD Association helps parents of youth with ADHD. Join us to learn more from each other, seminars, videos and invited specialists.
We now know that youth with ADHD can have successful lives providing they get the correct support and encouragment.
There is help, but no cure for ADHD
