Open Thread-ADD/ADHD

This is where we got started, and it seems that many, many people relate to the distractible child.
If you have questions or tips / techniques / advice, then here is the place to discuss them.

We're back

Well, we have now had a couple of weeks to recover from our travel schedule. This year has been our most ambitious for exhibiting at homeschool conventions.

Indianapolis, IN Feb 25-26
Frrederick, MD Apr 22-23
Worcester, MA Apr 29-30
Harrisburg, PA May 6-7 (HUD)
Ft Wayne, IN May 6-7 (HUM)
Lansing, MI May 13-14
Winston-Salem, NC May 26-28

We still have Columbus, OH in June and (finally) Dallas, TX in October!

I am still trying to get our website updated with all the new books & products we now carry. I will also put a link to this blog on the website. Hopefully that will get traffic up, and get us started.

Hello, and welcome

I have been intending to do this blog for some time now, but have been too busy to work on it with any concentrated effort.
My hope is not that HeadsUpMom and I will be here to answer all your questions & solve all your problems. Rather, my desire is that this would turn into a chatroom for people having to deal with special needs - in their own lives and their children's.

As we have traveled around the country, we've found that sometimes the best solutions come from "front line" people helping each other. The "experts" often are too far removed, or too myoptic, to see day-to-day realities.

As word gets out about this blog, and as posters refer & recommend it to others, we should build a community - a support group and a valuable resource.

To establish ourselves as something more than a couple of nutjobs, I will present our "bona fides."
HeadsUpMom (HUM) is a speech therapist (BS in education from Miami Univ., Masters from Ohio State University) with 20 years experience working alongside Occupational & Physical Therapists in an early intervention, preschool setting. We also have three children, two of whom have ADHD and Sensory Integration issues; they are aged 17, 15 and 12. We have homeschooled all three for their entire educational career. HUM is an author, speaker & workshop presenter.
HeadsUpDad (HUD) is an accountant & CPA. I also am ADD - diagnosed as an adult. I have learned everything I know about special needs from my wife & children.

That should be enough for now.

I commit this effort to my Lord, Jesus Christ. By His grace, I pray many will be helped.
