Hello Everyone,

What a strange and stressful time we are currently living in.  In our ADHD community, some people are learning how to work from home or maybe dealing with the loss of their job.  Families are trying to maintain a normal household and deal with their kids going to school from home. We all need to keep up our spirits and stay connected to family and friends through social media.  A number of national ADHD organizations have put together information to help cope with the stressors of living through the pandemic. As you know all state and local offices are closed until further notice and events have been canceled.  The resources we have listed give you alternative ways to contact them or access their information. If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at adaminc@charter.net
