What People Are Saying About Our Newsletter And Web Site
I just visited your website and was very impressed with what I saw.  What a great service you are providing to the parents of ADD/ADHD kids!
Marlys Isaacson, Ph.D.    

I love the name of your site, "homestead", and its content must be like cold water to the thirsty souls of parents who feel the need to network with other parents, and have a place to get this kind of input.  What you're doing is very important, as I know you are aware.

This is another great site!  Thanks for sharing! The 504 stuff was really interesting. I never realized that a medical diagnosis wasn't required!!!

Your site is Great!!..What a neat idea!!

This newsletter is helpful because it communicates the message I need to hear: I am not alone. Somehow, knowing that I am not alone helps me cope with my son's disability. I like the positive spin: success stories. Keep up the good work.

Your site looks terrific.

Congratulations!  I have just visited your site and found it very interesting and informative.  The layout is done very nicely and your content is exceptional.  Congratulations!

You are off to a great start. I hope the link to the "Famous People with ADD" gets fixed, because that would be of special interest to me. I find your newsletter valuable, informative and positive!

What a great contribution to the world of ADD/ADHD!

I just visited the ADD Helpline Site, it was new to me. I know how much work it is to make a good  ADD-page, so my compliments!

I have enjoyed reading your column. Keep it up !

Dear Eileen, Thank you for your reply. I will certainly give those
suggestions a try. I spoke to the school psychologist about homework and she is going to sit and have a talk with my daughter about quality work. I now feel there is hope and some of the burden has uplifted a bit so that now maybe we can have a mother-daughter relationship. Thank you so much.
Dear George.
Thank you for your response. Yes, we do feel alone and isolated here. Plus, I often feel like I am asking for an impossible request whenever I ask a question or ask for some understanding....
I loved your games! I will look at them closer and at least plan to put one in use starting this weekend! Our kids love games and incentives. We have used them in the past. I don't believe mine have been as clever as yours however! We have mostly earned time, trinkets, opportunities to go or do, or a friend over. When I hear other parents, friends and teachers many don't believe in them and see them only as bribes. Well, as you know, I don't need to get into that. I don't justify. My only response is that you can't have things for free, so if they work for them by reading, or whatever they are earning them and learning in the process. Someday they will earn, so if they don't learn, where are we? Our 8 year old is working for items for a soccer Lego set, by typing 10 minutes each day to learn the keyboard. He has earned the bus, the stands, but until he masters the entire board then he will earn the field. (we may have several different team busses!) He is doing ok with it, but it is hard to learn, particularly with school in session.
Anyhow, thanks!

Just saying Thank you for a good newsletter.
I would like to share with you that your website is excellent in helping those who have students and/or children with ADD/ADHD.  This actually came to me through a list-serv for my college class and it couldn't be better timing.  I have a project in which I am presenting about how to help parents understand and help their children with ADD/ADHD so I will post this website on our power point to let my classmates know about this excellent site.  and again, thanx so much for having such an excellent website!!!!!
