Best (and worst) after school activities for children with ADHD

Sometimes it can be difficult to find exactly what would best suit your child with ADHD. So far we've tried soccer, baseball and boy scouts with our son. None proved to be successful. He couldn't stay focused and soon became bored with the sports. They just weren't fast paced enough for him. Boy scouts was so involved that he just couldn't keep up. Now, we're about to begin another endeavor....basketball. We'll see how it goes since it is a little more fast paced. Below are some links related to this topic that may help you on your quest for the right activities for your child. Good luck!

  1. Hello:

    Your post as always are fun and informative, well done.

    I especially love the blog layout, so clean and tidy and your conviction for change is awesome. Love the direction of your questions and answers.

    Here is a bit about myself and how I'd like to ask for your help.

    My name is hoe bing, I have posted previously with regards to ADHD.

    I like your style of blogging and was wondering if you would like to contribute to my blog.

    Many parents and podcast listeners would most certainly welcome your warm and refreshing point of view.

    I have a podcast on ADHD and the research that surrounds it. I was wondering if you would like to join forces and promote it together with me?

    You can find the blog here http://www.theadhdspecialist.com/adhdblog/podcast.html

    I would really appreciate your opinion on my podcast and even more so would be grateful for a link exchange.

    The main page of the podcast will serve your readers well...that is what I think :P

    Looking forward to starting a relationship with your blog.

    Warmest regards,
    Hoe Bing
