The Internet is just brimming with all sorts of helpful information that will guide you in your pursuit of knowledge. But be careful! Some sites pertaining to Dyslexia and ADHD can be more confusing than others. To give you a head start, here’s a list of quality links that I myself have found helpful. I hope they will inspire and support you as much as they have me.

Love and Light,
