Tips

Everybody likes a hot tip, especially at the race track. This section is a collection of tips, but like a hot tip at the race track, it may not necessarily pay off. What helps me manage my stress, may induce stress with you, so read through the lists and circle those things you think may work for you. You may even want to try some of the suggestions that you don't think will work. What ever you do, continue to try different things until you find what works, and then stick with it. Have fun trying new things and give yourself encouragement along the way for continuing to grow. Finding ways to cope with inattention, impulsivity, and/or hyperactivity can be an adventure, and the following are some tips to get you started.
