May We Introduce You To Our New Monthly Newsletter, Positive Steps!

by Lee Gehrls R&D Coordinator (Volunteer)

We are excited to share with you the launch of our new monthly newsletter, Positive Steps! We knew we had to find a way to improve our method of sharing ADHD information and resources with you in a timely and more efficient manner. ADHD information continues to increase monthly. Our volunteers have worked hard the last couple of months sharing ideas, looking at numerous newsletters, and drafting newsletter samples to devise a format that best suits our organization and stay true to our mission.

What’s In The Positive Steps Newsletter?

The newsletter is designed so you can zero in on the information you need. Here’s a brief overview of what you will see each month:

  • May We Introduce You To
    • The feature article of the newsletter. It will be a look at a specific service provider on a local, state, or national level. It may also cover an exceptional educational resource such as a special app, article, blog, book, podcast, or webinar.
  • ADHD Groups
    • Will address specific populations:
      • Youth (4-17 years)
      • Adults (18-60+ years)
      • Professionals
      • Will provide you with specific information you can use. For example, Youth covers information on ADHD for early childhood, elementary, and adolescents. The Adult section provides information for college age, adults, and senior individuals. Our professional level is for health care, mental health care, social workers, educators, ADHD life coaches, and employers.
  • ADHD Lifestyle
    • Will cover nutrition, sleep, exercise, stress reduction, mindfulness and more.
  • Brainstorm
    • Will give you the opportunity to take a scientific look into ADHD.
  • ADHD Basics
    • Will give you a wide range of ADHD information to choose from. It will cover everyday essential topics to successfully manage and live with ADHD. In this section you will find:
      • ADHD ABCs
      • Unique ADHD section on Family, School, Relationships, Couples, Work, Women & ADHD
      • Organization Tips
      • And more
  • Did You Know
    • Will address facts and myths about ADHD.
  • In Case You Missed It
    • Will direct you to past articles, podcasts, webinars, or other information that you may not have heard about and give you the option to review it.

Many of the sections above will begin to be integrated onto our website. Watch for changes as we rearrange the website to better serve you!
