I hope to attend—I will be traveling, so I can’t be sure I’ll have access to the internet at the right moment.

We are struggling to decide whether or not to medicate 3 of 4 family members with ADD. My husband and twin sons (11 y/o) are very ADD as well as dyslexic. What are the links of ADD and dyslexia?

No one is medicated at the moment but we are considering this avenue as a possibility to improve the stress and increase our son’s self confidence. Should we try nutritional avenues first?  We have heard that medications benefits wear off after a period of time. Is this true? Are there certain medications that are better for pre- teens than adults? What are the cons of medication?

Can you review the “strength-based approach” to ADD that I can then take to the school so they can help my sons experience more success in school. (Right now they HATE school.) Are there any good ADD private schools that you would recommend? (We are willing to move because our sons are feeling overwhelmingly discouraged.)

Many thanks…

My understanding is that you cannot understand one’s ADHD, especially since it manifests in each person differently as well as treatment effectiveness being different for each person as well.  If it is possible for you to help me understand my ADHD - well, good luck!

I am very much looking forward to this webchat.  My question is: “How can I help make my husband understand that I do not purposefully act the way I do, that sometimes I just can’t help it?”

I’ll be there. 
I’m ‘the one’ in our marriage of 30 years, and 2 of our 3 children are also ADHD. I’ve tried every creative way I know to encourage my spouse to read, ‘Delivered from Distraction’.  I’ve promised that his frustration level would drop significantly and he would gain (great, incredible, freeing) insight not only into ‘why’ I speak/act and live the way I do, but he would understand our children better also.
When presented with his own copy of the book (mine is marked way too much~ha! think of that), he read one, and only one chapter.  Yep, chapter 41, “What can you do if your mate has ADD?’  :(
Other suggestions??
