ADHD and Pet Therapy

I hereby bestow upon Benjamin “Benny” Wegner the title of Honorary Therapy Dog, in recognition of his performing therapeutic interventions on my ADHD daughter.

After school last Friday, Natalie left for a respite weekend at her Aunt Ann’s house. As I’m still recovering from gallbladder surgery, and Don was away for a guys’ weekend with friends, I was looking forward to the break from the demands of ADHD parenting.

Update! ADDitude’s Back-to-School IEP Challenge: IEP Accommodations That Really Work

I’m going for a world record here -- let’s create the longest list of IEP accommodations for ADHD students.

Okay, okay! I’m late again -- this time on announcing the winners of ADDitude’s Back-to-School IEP Challenge. But I have an excuse, beyond my self-diagnosed ADHD by Proxy. I said good-bye to my gallbladder last week, and have been resting both mind and body. Now, I’m about halfway back to normal, for what that’s worth! Back to normal means back to blogging, thankfully, so...
