Along the way I’m hoping to have a little something to share with you in my Treasure Chest. Things like resources around ADHD that pretty much saved (most of) my sanity; interesting topics; inspirational people; things of interest, etc.
As I share, I would also invite you let me know if there’s anything that you’d like to share with all of us, that inspired you, saved you, educated you.
I felt a bit of pressure coming up with the inaugural topic – there are so many things that I’ve discovered that I can’t wait to share, because they have made an impact on me. But it was so hard to pick the one that will be The First One.
In the end I thought, seeing that October was ADHD Awareness month, I might share with you a few things that came in handy when I first realized that ADHD is a topic of importance in our family.
Firstly, I became obsessed with the ADDitude ADHD Experts podcast. If you are at the beginning of this ADHD journey, I encourage you – check it out. There are so many interesting podcast episodes. I also have subscribed to the ADDitude Magazine. Again, there are so many articles that have enlightened me along the way.
The first book I ever read about ADHD was The ADHD Go-To Guide; Facts and Strategies for Parents and Teachers by Desiree Silva and Michele Toner. It’s a great concise book that gives you general outline of ADHD, so really great for those of us who open it in a moment of vulnerability and a feeling of being overwhelmed. It covers everything that might be running through your panicked mind and in a simple easy to read way. If you don’t know where to start I would definitely recommend it.
If you’re already in the world of ADHD, you would have most likely come across this lovely book already: All Dogs Have ADHD by Kathy Hoopmann (pictured below). For me it was a fun way to introduce JJ to ADHD. The pictures are so cute- everyone loves dogs, right?
Because ADHD is my obsession I have done so much reading around the place (but of course, it never feels enough), but these are a few of my favourite ADHD resources that I wanted to share.
Of course, I’m always open to hear about resources that I have not yet discovered.
As someone very wise once said……
‘Sharing is caring’ Rani – all the time when she wants something.
Let’s talk again soon!!!!
PS. I should mention that in no way do I receive any commission for anything that I talk about. I talk about these things because I like talking.
