Internet Website

The Internet provides convenient access to information on a subject. Unfortunately, not all information found on the Internet is as reliable as information found in print. The website I have provided is one that is well-known in the field of learning disabilities and Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder. When viewing other Internet sources, consider who the author is, what his/her background is, when the information was created, and how often is it updated.
