Our team has compiled a list of the most up-to-date information and resources to offer guidance and support about Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). The fact is, ADHD and LD are not the same thing, but ADHD certainly can interfere with learning and impact behavior. As many as one-third to one-half of people with LD also have ADHD.
Here’s a list of resources that will answer your questions about these often co-occurring disorders.
We begin with a selection of ADHD-related videos and articles, and have also included a link to books on ADHD recommended by the LD.org community. Then, scroll down to view ten online resources selected by the NCLD team, for more information about ADHD.
