March Wrap-Up on Attention

March has flown by.  I didn’t get to post nearly as much information as I had planned.  I am going to have to revisit this topic soon! Since today is technically April 1st I am going to sneak in a few links to topics I had planned to talk about but didn’t get time.  These links aren’t one stop answers, but provide a sample of some of the most researched and debated topics in ADD/ADHD today.
