Self-Education Options: ADHD, Autism

For parents of children who have developmental disorders

(including Autism, ADHD, Learning Disability, OCD, PANDAS and more...)

There is a lot of information to learn (or teach) in the field of medicine, and the topics of Autism, ADHD, and neurodevelopmental disorders is particularly challenging. There is information in books, webinars, websites and more. Which are the best sources of information?

This handout is intended to help direct you to resources that can speed up your learning or give you more focus by spending your time with reliable information. I hope you'll consider some of our in-house seminars. The most important part is that you make some time to learn and understand the conditions that you live with, and treatment ideas that mainstream health care providers won't mention.
