* 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 girls – 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!
