Attention Deficit Disorders Association-Southern Region
June 24, 2010

When my son was first diagnosed with ADD as a child, I was uneducated about the disorder and of course very anxious and hesitant to start medication. I found out about ADDA from the dr. we were seeing and received some information in the mail and then attended a support group meeting. I got involved in helping the group and learned some invaluable information on how to better help my son. The wealth of knowledge from the support group leader as well as the director were phenomenal as well as the level of compassion.
