Hyper-focus on some great ADD Information
In the following pages we have assembled a wealth of information on ADD. It seems sometimes in the UK that most people remain unaware of ADHD, or completely misunderstand what it is! Fortunately there is fantastic information available with hundreds of great ADD books, cool ADHD Websites and interesting articles to read.
There are hundreds of great books on ADD/ADHD, mostly written by American authors. It is still rare to find an ADD book in any British bookshop but on-line retailers, such as Amazon.co.uk and Waterstones offer a wide range. There are many great ADD books that have yet to become available in the UK, even online, so it is worth looking at US sites such as Amazon.com or Barnes & Noble. Understanding your ADD, helps turn it from a problem to a strength, so get focussing:

There is a misconception that people with ADD struggle to focus on anything. But as ever with ADD, it is not quite as simple as that. In fact though people with ADD find it very hard to focus on the uninteresting or boring, with subjects they find interesting or stimulating, people with ADD are often able to "hyperfocus". They are able to filter out all distractions and focus intensely for exceptionally long periods of time whether studying, playing, creating, thinking or dreaming. This is why an ADD child is perfectly able to focus and play computer games for hours!
From Wikipedia: "Hyperfocus" - an intense form of mental concentration or visualization that focuses consciousness on a narrow subject, or beyond objective reality and onto subjective mental planes, daydreams, concepts, fiction, the imagination, and other objects of the mind.
