MentalHelp.net is a very informative website that seems to focus more towards the layman rather than the professional. I would recommend it for reference, but I would not necessarily use it in a classroom. Many of the articles I read seem to be in blog format and not reviewed; although I am sure the information presented in each article is predominently accurate.

Technical Remarks:

Easy to navigate; user friendly.

Time spent reviewing site: 40 minutes

This website has a lot of useful information. It was easy to navigate and first-time users should have no problem locating information. I particularly liked the breakdown of the information into manageable segments.

I have review this site for about 20 mins. This is a very informational site and
very easy to get around. This had some very informational tools such as the
ADHD test for adults which I had never seen on any other site before.

Technical Remarks:

This site is easily navigated for anyone.

I spent quite a while reviewing the material on this website. I found it very
informative and helpful. I never did quite undestand what ADD was and how much
of an impact it has on people. I was especially was surprised to find out that
adults can have it too. That's not something you hear too much about. I think
this website can definately help both teachers and students with learning about
this.

Technical Remarks:

I found it very easy to navigate around the website and get the information I
wanted and needed, so I definately think that first time users will have no
problem with it.

The disorders and treatment site was an informative site that gave specific
information on every disorder possible. After 1 hour of browsing the material I
felt that the content of the material does specifically address disorders and
treatments that are educationally significant.
My knowledge of many issues has been expanded, so therefore I believe this site
would be an excellent learning tool for students and educators.

Technical Remarks:

Once I was in the site I found navigating to be simple and specific. I do
believe a first time user would find it fiarly easy to use.

I am really glad I found this website. After spending a good hour I couldn't
wait to share this information with people I know that would value the materials
within. I think people might be able to better understand the information once
brought to their attention.

Technical Remarks:

Not being a computer genius I found this site very easy to use. I have had
trouble in the past trying to find information in this area and was relieved to
find this site was simple but yet very useful.

After locating this website, I spent approximately 45 minutes to an hour reviewing all of the information that this website had to offer. I
examined the link regarding symptoms, which gave me a broad overview of ADD and ADHD. I also examined the links regarding what exactly these
disorders are, possible treatment options, various on-line resources on these disorders, diagnosis of ADD and ADHD, where to go for help and a
reliable diagnosis, support organizations, ADHD quiz, on-line support group and new research findings. In my opinion, the quality of the
content was of a highly credible nature and it was most definitely educationally significant. This website acts as a great teaching/learning tool as it provides such a complete background on
these disorders, while directing the viewer to other sources for further reading and research. I do believe that this resource would absolutely
enhance both the educator and student's knowledge of these topics to a strong degree.

Technical Remarks:

Personally, I found it very easy to
navigate around this website--I felt that everything was easily
accessible and clearly stated. First time users should not have a problem navigating this website. I would highly recommend this website as it is very well-organized and presented, while providing a great deal of useful information.

This site was extremely informative on the topic of ADD and ADHD. I spent quite
awhile browsing through the links and looking at the different sections of the
site. I found the material beneficial for everyone from those with the disorder
to those just interested in learning about it.

Technical Remarks:

I think the site is very user-friendly and even me as a first time user found it
very easy to understand and find the things I needed to.
