    DDD: It's the correct url. It's a lengthy paper and takes a few minutes to download (course I don't have DSL lol).

    with-the internet, it is a really small world. lol

    whew...long and a little wordy but tons of info.

    i liked the reference to ADHD kids and social skills--"they're not clueless, they're cueless".

    and on kids having to always be compensating for their deficits and how exhausting that is for them...They make up their own "Software" and novel situations arise making it undependable and then causing anxiety...

    thanks --sonja
