In order to treat ADHD, we must understand what it is that we are treating. You will find a lot of information about nearly all aspects of our complex condition. It is also the most common of all the neurological conditions, affecting approximately 10% of any given population.

I have divided this section into 3 parts. First is the "What Is ADHD" part.

Here you will find the multi-media clips; The Sound Of An ADHD Brain, and a short video What Happens In The ADHD Brain..

There are also a lot of articles that demystify the folklore, intricacies, and legends of ADHD. It's important for anyone who lives with or alongside ADHD to know when to be sceptical and when to be accepting.

The next part is a great illustration of those intricacies - the "Co-occurring Conditions." No one only has ADHD, at least three other conditions run alongside, usually as a result of ADHD.

I have divided the co-occurring conditions into 8 sections. You can explore Mood Disorders, Behaviour Disorders, Anxiety Disorders, Sensory Disorders, Pervasive Developmental Disorders, Learning Disabilities, Tic Disorders, and Miscellaneous Disorders

The final part of this section is all about "Treatment." This too is a vast topic. I have used our Basic Treatment Wheel as the structure for this part. There are 8 different components to our wheel, which all have at their core Powerful Affirming Love.
