The weather is turning cooler, the leaves are changing color, and apples, pumpkins, and persimmons are fresh and abundant. Must mean it's October, and October means a new issue of CeDIR Citings (which happens to remind me of cider--there are those apples again!).
In this edition of CeDIR Citings, we take a look at attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder. We have included both library materials that can be checked out and websites on the topic.
Got a question or a suggestion for future issues of this newsletter? Want to check out a title you see here? Give us a call at 800-437-7924, drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org, or come on by to browse or pick up your choices. Let us know how we can help!
While we have not physically moved our location, on October 1st, the Institute's street address was changed. This change is due to the addition of new roads around us and the need to make our address more GPS-friendly. The easiest way to find us? Type "Indiana Institute on Disability and Community" into Google Maps. It will return a direct hit!
Our new address is:
1905 N. Range Rd.
Bloomington, IN 47408-9801
Fall in New England
