ADHD and ADD

SEN Resources

ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) and ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder) represent a spectrum of neurodevelopmental conditions that affect millions worldwide. Characterized by difficulties with attention, impulsivity, and, specifically in ADHD, hyperactivity, these conditions present unique challenges and strengths for individuals. Our ‘ADHD and ADD Resources’ section is designed to offer comprehensive support, insights, and strategies for managing and thriving with these conditions. From understanding the nuanced differences between ADHD and ADD, to exploring effective coping mechanisms, educational accommodations, and workplace strategies, we provide a wide array of resources. Whether you’re an individual living with ADHD/ADD, a parent, educator, or healthcare professional, these resources aim to enhance awareness, promote effective management, and support the well-being of those affected by ADHD and ADD throughout all stages of life.
