REVIEW:
Kids Who Thrive "Outside the Box!" is produced by Laurie Shagberg, a teacher who didn't believe in ADHD until her son was diagnosed with it. She has put together an excellent resource, with an unusual depth of understanding on the subject. Both parents and teachers can gain a lot from this site. Be sure to check out the message boards to read other people's comments and questions. The Life With ADHD section is full of anecdotes from teachers and parents of kids with ADHD, as well as a few insightful ones from kids who grew up living with ADHD. This is a site worth bookmarking and coming back to for inspiration from time to time.
