I began Essential Learnings 2 years ago to help parents and students in the learning process. Health problems sidetracked me along the way. So, todayI begin again. I hope that you will find helpful information here.

Currently, I am working on the section on ADD and ADHD. I am the mother of an ADHD child and the teacher of many. This is a subject very near to my heart.

If you have suggestions for this site I would love to hear from you. Email me at dwatkins@essentiallearnings.com
