AD/HD: Separating Facts From Fiction

Why am I including this on a blog about blindness and visual impairments? Because, just like sighted children, our children with visual impairments can have other conditions that need to be understood in order to provide the best teaching strategies for them.

LD News

Dear Kathy,

AD/HD: Facts vs. Fiction
Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (AD/HD) is a source of great debate, occasionally the butt of late-night talk show jokes, and is widely misunderstood. We know AD/HD is no laughing matter, though, especially for the one-third of people with LD who also have AD/HD. If your child is one of them, there are ways to sort it all out.

In this issue, we clearly separate AD/HD fact from fiction and bring you a new video on this topic. Help us spread the truth by sharing these resources with others!

The NCLD Team

P.S. Check out our new e-books section where we bring together all of our e-books, toolkits, and guides so you can access the information you need on a specific topic in one easy download. Our e-books now offer read-aloud technology and can be printed or read on your mobile device.
