ADDitude Magazine is an Advocate and Community for Folks with ADHD

       For many years now I have both subscribed to and written for ADDitude Magazine (for more information or to subscribe go to: additudemag.com).  I put a handful of copies out each month when it arrives on the table in the waiting rooms of all my offices and a copy is always being read by the people waiting for an appointment.

         The magazine was founded years ago by Ellen Kingsley as a labor of love.  She wanted to create a publication for the ADHD community that would include the latest information in a user-friendly format and also provide a compendium of resources. She reached out to many professionals, including me, and put together a top-notch advisory board, found excellent people from all disciplines including parents to write for the magazine, and managed to build it up into a viable venture.

          When she tragically died too young, her devoted and brilliant colleague, Susan Caughman, took over and, with the help of a hugely dedicated and creative editor, Wayne Kalyn, continued to build and develop the magazine.  Here is how Susan puts it now:

           “At ADDitude magazine, we remain committed to the mission of visionary founder Ellen Kingsley. Launching ADDitude first as a website in 1998 and soon thereafter as a print magazine, Kingsley believed that parents and adults living with ADHD and related mental health conditions, and the professionals who serve them, deserve scientifically accurate information presented in helpful, practical, and empathetic formats. ADDitude serves as an advocate for those living with attention deficit disorder as well as a community in which readers feel understood, often for the first time. In the almost 20 years since ADDitude began, it has grown to reach over a million readers each month online. The quarterly print magazine reaches over 300,000 readers with each issue. Like Kingsley before us, the editors and staff at ADDitude are personally committed to serving ADDitude’s readers as both reliable advisors and a source of inspiration and hope.”

         I love it when each new issue arrives in the mail. The magazine is colorful and chock-full of articles that immediately grab my attention. Susan, Wayne, and their team really understand their readers and manage to provide them (us) with new and fascinating material with each new issue. Keeping people with ADHD interested in no small achievement, and the people at ADDitude do it masterfully.

        With this note I am not writing a commercial so much as writing a note of heartfelt thanks to Susan, Wayne, and their team.  Truly, truly, thank you for this great gift to the community of ADHD.

        I am also encouraging any reader of this newsletter who does not know about the magazine (both print and online) call ADDitude to learn about it and—if it strikes your fancy as I am pretty sure it will if you have any interest in ADHD—then to subscribe to it right away.  I can promise you, you will be glad you did!
