Great ADHD Resources

As you know, it is really important to develop supports around you and your family. Whenever you are dealing with any challenge – like ADD/ADHD challenges, or working toward a goal, it is very helpful to have a support network. The saying “it takes a village” comes to mind. I’m writing this post today to share the people who are part of my support network online – particularly when I had a major event – the launch of my book.

Recently, when I launched my book: Attention Difference Disorder, many people were kind enough to let their subscribers and readers know about my new book. I’d like to thank each of these people, and let you know about them, because they provide great resources online which can help you out.

Attention Difference Disorder in the Toronto Star

thestar logo Attention Difference Disorder in the Toronto StarThis past weekend, there was an article about my new book: Attention Difference Disorder. You can see the online version of the article here.

You can see a PDF of the article here (a scan of the newspaper article).

The response to the article has been amazing. People have been getting in touch and letting me know that they have found the message of Attention Difference Disorder exciting and helpful. This is so meaningful to me – as I’m excited to see that the message of the book is getting out to more people. The message that you can make a difference for people with ADD/ADHD by taking a strength based approach, and by focusing on differences rather than deficits.

You can read more about the book here (and you can get your copy too – with links to online publishers who sell the book).

Attention Difference Disorder on Amazon

My new book, Attention Difference Disorder was just released yesterday (on June 7, 2011).

It was a whirlwind of a day. Very exciting indeed.

I had 18 radio interviews (across the USA), a newspaper interview, and then a live teleseminar call in the evening. The call was very well attended, and we’ve decided to post the replay (for people who couldn’t attend live). You can access the recording until Sunday night – here. There is also a special offer on that page – which will be there until the replay comes down – on Sunday night.

The great news:

Yesterday – my book started climbing the charts on Amazon. On – we ranked as high as #19 in the overall bestsellers category (that is for ALL of the books on Amazon), and my book was #1 in the categories of: Disorders and Diseases, Parenting School Aged Children, and Family Health.

And this morning – it was ranked #1 on in the Bestsellers ‘Movers and Shakers’ category – because in 24 hours, it went from ranking 38,000+ on the bestsellers list – to #19!

You can see the pictures below.

If you haven’t grabbed your copy – now’s the time. (the best way is to take advantage of our special bonus by clicking here)

Thanks for your support.
