The website Healthline just put together their list of The 11 Best ADHD Blogs of 2016. This is a great resource, so I wanted to make sure to share it with you. Below are the blogs, presented in no particular order:

An ADD Woman
Sometimes, the best form of support you can receive is from people who have walked in your shoes. If you are a mother of a child who has ADHD, Brenda Nicholson invites you to read her diet tips, organization and coping strategies, and more. As an ADHD coach, Brenda’s creativity and breadth of topics will be sure to inspire and support you.
CHADD Leadership Blog
People with ADHD face many challenges, and the leaders of CHADD (Children and Adults with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder) share their thoughts on these issues on their blog. You can find updates from the organization, as well as information on research, news, events, and other developments.
When you are looking for good advice about ADHD, Dr. Edward Hallowell’s blog is an essential resource. Hallowell is an author, psychiatrist, and speaker on both conditions, as well as an advocate for people who have them. Along with his own guidance, he shares helpful content from around the web and connects readers with workshops, testing services, and more.

My ADD/ADHD Blog
This blog is written by Tara McGillicuddy, who has ADHD and is a certified ADHD coach. She shares tips for coping with ADHD, and spotlights new products that might be able to assist others who have the disorder or know someone who does. Be sure to check out her podcast, ADHD Support Talk Radio!
