Welcome to The ADHD Manual!

Living with ADHD in a world built for neurotypicals (people with the most common brains) is like trying to follow an IKEA assembly manual for our Hot Wheels race car track pieces. No matter how much tape is at our disposal, those little Swedish illustrations elude us. We could toss this rocket launcher and buy crappy plastic pins. Or we could toss the manual and write our own.

Episode 25 is live! What do therapists, neurodivergents, and people living through a global pandemic all have in common? A high risk of burnout. Today I need to talk about my place at the intersection of those three.

Episode 22 is live! Big Feelings and ADHD are like peas and carrots. Today we’ll discuss tips for weathering neurodivergent emotional overwhelm in yourself and your child through one of my favorite therapeutic crafts: a grounding box.

Episode 21 is live! Today I’m thinking about everyday societal/systemic gaslighting (consistent denial of someone’s reality), and the specific ways it impacts us as neurodivergents.
