About AD/HD

AD/HD and LD are two discrete disorders with distinct symptom clusters. However, symptoms may be common to both disorders, including disorganization, weak executive functioning, and inefficient use of strategies. http://www.ldalondon.ca/default.asp?id=902

Did you know that Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and attention deficit / hyperactivity disorder (AD/HD) can look different in women and girls than it does in men and boys? See *

* Women and girls and ADD/ADHD: “An understanding ADD (ADHD) in girls and women is very recent and few professionals have the information and experience that you need. What is clear is that ADD (ADHD) in girls and women can look very different, and that girls and women often have very different challenges.” See ADDvance-for women and girlshttp://www.addvance.com

This is being submitted for general information as there are no support groups for adults with ADD/ADHD within St. Thomas at the current time.

The support group is also for residents of St. Thomas and area as there is no separate group for them. Thank you for posting this!
