Website like this for teens?

Does anyone know of or recommend a website like this for teens? I’d love a site like this that’s designed specifically for teens and full of resources that my son can visit and explore topics on his own. I think it would be of great help to address his own concerns and identify the many parts of ADHD that he experiences are symptoms and not personal flaws. Please tell me there’s one out there somewhere! My own searches have availed nothing.
Thanks so much!

I don’t know of a site, but my son uses the book, THE ADHD WORKBOOK FOR TEENS. It helps the child define himself by his strengths rather than his weaknesses. It offers him the tools to deal with challenges. Each chapter is one page of info & one page of a 2-4 question activity that helps the child learn simple skills & strategies for overcoming ADHD related struggles. Author is Lara Honos-Webb. Best of luck!

I may have to get that workbook even though mine is in his 20’s….his maturity level at times is more teen like.  Maybe if the info is short and sweet he’ll start taking some of it to heart.  Be happy your sons are interested in working around the ADHD—-mine was not interested in getting help from others or searching it out for himself.  I am really hoping it’s a maturity thing….

Every time I get an email or read something on ADDitude I learn so much myself -and can’t help but think how useful it would be for him if it waasher presented in a teen-friendly format. I really appreciate your recommendation and if I run across anything else I’ll be sure to post! smile

I recently discovered http://addyteen.com. It is a great resource for teens, created by a teen with ADHD.
