Murderball
http://www.takepart.com/
The athletes in Murderball transcend any images of the disabled that one might conjure up, and their day-to-day lives, their successes and failures on and off the court are a continuous example of defying negative perceptions and stereotypes. Any misconceptions about people with disabilities are quickly eliminated as soon as someone sees the film.
To assist you with your screening and discussion, download the Murderball discussion guide. It will help you lead a discussion on the film and the issues it addresses and includes guiding questions to encourage meaningful discussion.

Hunter Of The Past ADHD
http://www.greyolltwit.org/
Hunter Of The Past ADHD
An original children's book on ADHD in interactive format. You cannot buy this book in the shops, it is only available, free, from here.
In this book, Caroline Hensby and Bernard Braham give children an opportunity to reframe their ADD/ADHD in a less pathological light, to see themselves as having potential and strengths, and to hear the sound of hope for the future. It's empowering, enlightening, and altogether healing.
That's why this is such an important book. For your child, in fact, it may be the most important book on ADD in the world...
"For a child, being labeled with ADD or ADHD can be a double-wounding. First, of course, there's the ADD itself, and the academic and/or social problems which have probably plagued the child his or her entire life as a result of it. But on top of that, there's the often even more painful wounding of being told that he or she has a "disorder" and, compared to others, is "deficient." These are very strong words, and children take such things very seriously. They're extraordinarily good at living up (or down) to our expectations of them, and such labels can often be painful to wear.
