End of Year Updates from 2021 Newsletters

by Lee Gehrls R&D Coordinator (Volunteer)

Last month I gave you updates on a few of our Feature Articles from 2020.  This  month I want to close out the year with brief updates on three Feature Articles from 2021.

Thank you for reading and learning with us!

February 2021 Positive Steps Newsletter

PACER Center – Champions For Children with Disabilities

During all the changes in education this year, PACER never missed an opportunity to provide information and educational resources for parents, caregivers, and professionals.

I encourage all parents and caregivers to spend some time exploring PACER’s website and become familiar with the vast amount of information and services they provide. Even with the holidays approaching they have their monthly virtual webinar schedule filled with different topics to choose from.

PACER maintains extensive archives of the past webinars, their newsletters, publications, and translated materials just to name a few. You can contact them for more information or for any questions or problems you may be having at school. PACER may be a resource to consider for your ADHD Toolbox.

April 2021 Positive Steps Newsletter

Penny Williams with Parenting ADHD & Autism

Currently on her website is an offer for a free video series that will help parents with the five biggest challenges they have. It looks like she has made a few changes to the website and it’s still full of information that is free and there are resources that do have fees.

This is not a website you can breeze through because there is a lot of information to review. The website does give you comments and testimonials from other parents. You may want to check out her weekly Parenting ADHD Podcast which shows 151 episodes to date with 1.75 million downloads. 

May 2021 Positive Steps Newsletter

Sharon Saline, PsyD, Author, ADHD Expert

It looks like there has been an upgrade to Dr. Saline’s website as it is more user friendly, and you can get a quick overview of the free information and resources that you can purchase as well as fee for services.

You can still find resources for parents and professionals, her blog and newsletter, home study courses, and a listing of all the different venues she has participated in.

You will see Dr. Saline featured in ADDitude articles and webinars, CHADD webinars, Attention Talk Radio, Psychology Today, and various podcasts and news venues to name a few. 


It has certainly been a year of continuous change and challenges. I have enjoyed learning about ADHD right along with you because as you may realize by now, having ADHD in your life means you will be a lifelong learner.

On behalf of the A-D-A-M, Inc. board of directors, I want to thank you for subscribing to our newsletter, checking out the website and event calendar, and continuing to spread the word about the organization.

We also wish everyone a happy December spending time with family and friends, safe travel, and the very best for 2022.
