I spent about a total time of 1 1/2 hours, going back a second time to review
more webcasts. I thought the webcasts were the best part of this resource with
the upmost quality of content. You could use this as a teaching tool or a
learning tool. The webcasts made it more interesting because they seemed to
talk about the most frequently asked questions and gave simple, understandable
answers. If you prefer to read instead of listening to the webcasts there are
articles that could be reviewed.

Technical Remarks:

I found the use of the materials very easy to use. I really enjoyed listening
to the webcasts.

This site is very nicely done complete with many graphics and video clips that
discuss Ritalin use and the many myths that accompany this drug. ADHD is
present in both the adult and children and can often be misdiagnosed. This site
is a valuble tool in regards to sorting out the myths and facts of this
disorder.

Technical Remarks:

Since there is video footage, RealPlayer is used to view the information.
Otherwise, unremarkable.

presented in a clear and easy to read and understand format. It is easy for the
first time users. This material could be used to enhance learning.

Technical Remarks:

I did not find any problems with this site.
