Computer Programs to Help ADHD Learners

Q:

"I was wondering if you know any computer programs that would be good for reading enrichment for a 4th grader with ADHD." -- LG, Florida

A:

There are hundreds of programs today.

One way to leaf through this maze is to send for the Special Times Catalog from Cambridge MASS at 1-800-637-0047. They sift through all the software and highlight the best pieces for kids with special needs.

I find it a wonderful resource before I go software shopping. Their prices are quite competitive. I like Reader Rabbit and Jump Start Reading for starters.
